Arrived Lisbon this morning.  A good passage with mostly moderate winds.  We put up the gennaker when the winds were light - its first outing for over 3 years.  Shipping traffic was minimal as we were inshore of the main route.  We had to dodge a few fishing boats: they always seem to find a good spot to fish dead ahead of us...  Entering the river Tagus we had to dodge a few cruise ships coming in, including the Costa Fortuna.  Like the name.  Now moored in the Marina Parque das Nacoes, 7 miles upriver and a quiet spot with good facilities and links to the city centre.
