Sail big waves

videoDo you remember last video?

Well guess what, i found out that´s the entrance for the Marina wen the the weather is not smiling,so i found out from the same marina a sail boat gething out.

If i was in that situation i think i will become religious very fast, and for a very but VERY long time no one would take me out to the sea.

So take a look .

Living on boat

With the crisis we are going through in Portugal (and the rest of the world) often i think it would be a good experience living on a boat, first for the experience, second is less expencive and i do not have to pay for water and electricity, third it is VERY but VERY expencive to have a house facing the marina so why not just live in the marina in your sail boat :) .
In Portugal we don´t know many people living on board,but i know some people live on it.
I´m not shore if they fell shame but i never heard anybody talk about it, in U.S.A, France, Holland it´s normal but in Portugal it´s like a secret.
Every time i say i have a sail boat ( a old one 1982)they say i must be rich but i think in our days with this crisis, i must say you got to be rich to have a house so think about.
So i have found this site about living on aboard.
Take a look

To much wind


To much wind around 27knots and we decided to sail only with the main sail,and there she is my wife calling all kind of bad names...

Sailing back home


The wind start to pick up and reach 21 knots with gusts of 27knots by the end of the da,our friends loved it,my wife hates to much wind.

Sailing in Cascais



Wen we got to Cascais lot´s of sailing boats were there all ready and whaithing for the race.

It was about 11h a.m wen we left the marina and dicided to go to Cascais and see
the Medcup realy close and alive,not trow the T.V,so like me others had the same idea.

Harmony



Here are some more pictures of my boat with the knew antifouling,and... YESSSSS... it did pass the inspection,but i got one important notice,the hose from my gaz botle was to old.
And it pop to my mind once wen i was a boy in my grandmothers house,that has a great view to the bay in Sines and i remember to see a sailboat going out and after 10min i heard a explosion and the sail boat was on fire.
At the time they said it was the gaz botle.
So the inspector got my atention.

Barcelona World Race 2010


I got to admit they look great.

Barcelona World Race 2010


I was in Barcelona and as a sailer i could not whait to go to the marina to take a look.
Guess what... i was about to see the Barcelona world race and a chance to take all the pictures i whant,i could talk to the skipers and see the boats real close ,things that if it was in Portugal it will be almost impossible to get close to them.

Sail or not to sail...


The day i took this picture was a bad day to sail,big seas and the river was replete with everything you can think off and the color of the water was dark brown,
so i decided to climb the mast and do some clean up and next month it´s time for the police do the inspection to the boat in the water and out of the water that happens every 5 years in Portugal,and it´s going to my firs experience,am i nervous?.... i prefer not talking about because if doesen´t pass the inspection that means i can´t sail and means i got to spend more money to get what ever they think i should have or repair and finally pay another reinspection $$$$$$$$$$
