Hello from Portugal

Just a quick introduction. I am 57 and since 7 years I live in Portugal. I am retired, but I still work on my small olive farm that includes also a vineyard. I haven't sailed since almost 30 years, because my wife already got seasick by watching a boat. I am single again and plan to start sailing again in a couple of years.

My mother tongue is West Flemish, a regional dialect of the Dutch language group, spoken by around one million people in the west of Belgium. Of course I speak Dutch too, and French, the language spoken in the south of Belgium. I also speak some German, Portuguese and Spanish, but not fluent. During my student years I learnt other languages, but I forgot almost everything about these (Latin, Greek, Sanskrit, Russian, Hindi, Swahili and bahasa Indonesia)

Re: Hello from Portugal

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF BELKIS!

While our native languages may differ, we all share a love sailing.

It sounds like you have a dream, and one many of us share. Learning from what you can read on this forum can help that dream become a reality.

Bon Voyage on the Forum and on the water too.
Ahoy All Sailors! Need experienced crew for a passage or delivery in Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, Med, PNW, ICW, coastal or across an ocean anytime in 2018? I am available on 24hr notice. See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details. Happy to lend a hand!
