Departing Lisbon

No Comments Sailing

Good news she floats ….

Dave has not slept on land for a good 9 months, having a double bed in a Hotel on terra firma was unsettling and he was glad to be back on the yawing deck of a rolling yacht.

Over breakfast at the hotel I had my first lesson, knock as many of the complementary items (anything not encased in glass) into your bag. These store well and keep for years … oh and they are free.. loving this life more and more….

Spent all day cleaning the boat and headed up North to a little bay called Cascais, no wind so we motored. Once there fate played its hand again. First day out on the Contessa 32 and we anchor up next to a Contessa 26 with a young French couple who are doing the same as me. They had already sailed from the UK and were waiting for favourable winds to undertake the next step to the Canaries.

They came on board and David coaxed by offerings of red vino imparted all the usual advice only a sailor could appreciate.

Contessa’s are the sex! – the Contessa 26

Tall Ships leaving Lisbon.

Tall Ships in Lisbon

Dave, the dude, knows all about living aboard and solo sailing.
