Cascais- Lisbon

Left Nazare late(1130hs) heading Peniche, only 25 NM away.

As we progress sailing, wind started to pick up from the back helping our speed.Changed my mind and decided to go Cascais(near Lisbon)

20knots wind helped to average 8 knots Great sailing day.

Got Dolphins visit twice.

Arrived to Cascais at 2130 hs, trying to avoid to get trapped in fishing buoys in 25 knots wind(2 reefs), no moon and confused by city lights(difficult to spot the Marina entrance)

Cape Carvoeiro


Berth at Cascais marina early in the morning,Fellina behind us.


Spent the next 3 days in Cascais. Bought a new engine for the dinghy.
Lovely weather, 25 C -every day and sun,sun,sun….
