Re: Delivery.. Hollywood, Florida to Figuiera da Foz, Portugal.

" Portuguese phones don't do Data outside the EU."
Probably depends on whose SIM car you use, and what bands the particular phone uses for data. Even in the US, an AT&T (GSM) customer may not be able to use T-Mobile (GSM) data, simply because T-Mob requires 2G support in the phone for that, and AT&T orphaned that years ago.

Taxi drivers have been known to rip off tourists all over the world, Miami is not alone in that. There is always recourse, but that's after the fact. Better to always ask ahead of time.

Happy you still kicking it!
Into the wind and beam reach she will do 50% of wind speed.. aft of the beam its starts falling off down to 2/3rds.. mind I cannot give a real opinion as I was double reefed for the trip and triple a couple of times when we had constant squalls for 3 days.. I tend to under sail on deliveries..
Mind with much of the trip 8kts of favourable winds and less methinks having full sail up would have made little difference..
