Thank you all for the nice messages whem I joined your forum. I already take part in three foruns in Brasil, but the operating way is different, so I´ll spend some time to learn how to participate.
Caleb D, Ok, and by my way I´m a fan of low american music
. If I hve some vacabullary in english is the old american songs
I had learn the lyrics in the old times. Some of 800 of them, haha.
Hud, I am also a moderator of two sailing foruns in Brasil, and joined a third, with a participation of about 1500 sailers (and dreamers, too). But considering our coastal line and wharm watters, the sailing is not as popular as it could be.
In spite of it, whe have good sailsmen, as Robert Scheidt from São Paulo, olimpic champion of Laser class and eight times gold medal of the world championship, now sucessfully sailing in the "Star" class in Europe
of the italian "Luna Rossa".
I used to have a very good friend, Joerg Bruder, that was three times world champion of Finn class, and north-american champion of "Lightining" in past years. Unhappily, he died in a plane crash whem he was flying to disoutae his forth gold medal in Finn.
And, you perhaps hear about it, Torben Grael, from Niteroy, near Rio de Janeiro, was also olimpic gold medal of Star class, and last month he won, as skipper
of a swedish boat, the Volvo
We have several others sucessfull sailors of competition, but "my own people" is more to the side of cruising. Slow, easy-going, calm, peacefull cruising. Whith a sailboat, if possible, but even whith motor
Ubatuba is, as you said, a kind of gorgeous, so I decided, whem I married, to leave the big city I was born and live here. But I have a modest, tiny house in a place named Saco do Ceu, in Ilha Grande, Angra dos Reis, about forty nautical miles from here. You can see it in Google Earth
was really gorgeous. Wonderfull wiew, preserved nature and one of the best, more secure places for anchoring
I knew. I would insert a photo
here, if I knew how to do this, but I don't by now.
Amyr Klink, a former pupil of mine in skin diving
, that is very famous in Brasil as a navigator and a writer, and use to explore frozen Antartic watters with is aluminum
boat "Paraty II", said that Saco do Ceu is the more beautiful place he knew, and I agree.
Perhaps I know your sister that has a house here. It´s a small city, everybody knows everybody. And I hope you visit me, if you returns some day to these sides.
And, finally, to David and John L:
by this time, you already knew that what you kindly told about my english is not completelly true, haha ...
But the important is that you, with some complacency, could understand what I'm trying to say .
