    I'm very glad I had the opportunity to race Bimmer many times and must compliment him again for his last victory at La Rochelle. Flawlessly sailed!
    My condolences to family and friends.
    RIP my friend.

    Amêijoas à Bolhão Pato (Clams Bolhão Pato style)

    Ingredients

    -1kg clams (ruditapes decussatus - see image). This the best variety (I think is the same as italian vongole veraci) but the recipe can be made with other varieties.
    -8/10 garlic cloves slightly crushed and unpeeled
    -a bunch of coriander leaves
    -100ml olive oil
    -lemon juice
    -black pepper
    -White wheat bread to dip in the sauce while eating (see photo)

    This a a delicious and very easy recipe invented by Mr. Bolhão Pato, a portuguese ultra-romantic writer that lived in the second half of the 19th century.

    Soak the clams in water seasoned with salt for 1 to 2 hours. Wash them under running water before cooking.
    Put the olive oil, the crushed garlic and the coriander leaves in a frying pan and saute over low heat for about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the clams, stir, cover the pan with a lid and cook over medium heat until the clams open completely. Shake the pan from time to time.
    Turn off the heat, season with the lemon juice and serve.

    Don't forget to dip the bread in the delicious sauce while eating

    I would certainly enjoy racing again the Meddle Sea race (aka Valetta Sprint in SOL). Please consider adding it to the calendar.

    Excellent app!

    On my iphone, to enter a course, it doesn't allow me to input the decimal point. The numeric keypad that shows to input a course has a comma and not a point.

    The density of wind barbs with the high resolution wx makes the screen too crowded.

    It is very sad news to know that my fellow countryman and good friend, João Malafaia, is no longer among us.
    My condolences to his family. Rest in Peace.

    Dear João,

    I think we have to find a 3rd portuguese sailor to have a chance in this ranking. We must convince some friends of ours.

    The finish line of this race has a point over land. I think that this should be corrected.

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.
RE-REGISTER HERE to race again after finishing a run

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.
