Hi guy's. We are currently sitting at anchor just outside Cascais, Lisbon. We had a great run down from Peniche. Light winds from the North until you round the headland and cape at Cabo Raso. Then wind went from F2 to F6! In same direction. It's been much the same on these last legs with very gentle Northerly's until the headlands. Reefing in anticipation makes good sense. We would love to do longer passages with more night sailing when things seem to calm down. But, we have two pooches with us and it is only fair that we try to make landfall every night. Current weather pattern looks like strong North Westerly's from midday onwards so we will stay at anchor and explore some of the interesting history of this part of the Portuguese coast that we may have missed had we rushed on. Good to see the new boat is performing well. Sail safe, Ant & Cid xx

Paul & Sheryl - thank you for sharing your remarkable life at sea. We loved this episode - capturing lighthouses working at night so clearly was brilliant, but the whole video was great. The quality of your footage is outstanding - even uploaded to YouTube - the original footage must be truly sensational. One question though - how do you stay safe sailing short-handed overnight? I assume you have solo watches - or do you take crew with you these days? Are there any special precautions you take? Cheers, Gavin & Amanda

To anyone planning to one day include cruising as part of their life:
We have been extremely fortunate to be welcomed by Paul and Sheryl as guests on this sail away week. Words cannot express our deep gratitude for this life changing experience, for everything we have learned and memories that will be with us for the rest of our lives.
Having watched, or more precisely devoured all videos form all seasons over and over again has been and continues to be a catalysts for beautiful dreams to keep one warm even on a cold Canadian winter night. Experiencing a sail away week with Paul and Sheryl should be in our opinion very high on the bucket list of any cruising enthusiast.
Sailing and exploring with our role-models was infinitely better than we dared dream and we now feel permanently inspired to make cruising a major ingredient in the recipe of our future plans.

To Paul and Sheryl:
From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you!
Thank you for your very warm welcome and having made us feel at home, we miss you and hope to see you again.
With all our love,
Lucian and Lana

Thanks so much for your kind words, Lucian & Lana! It was indeed a pleasure having you aboard S/Y Distant Shores III and you know we wish you the very best with your cruising plans. We also thank you for the incredible meals you prepared while on board! Now we are spoiled! It was a great cruise and we are very happy that we could share our cruising life with you both. XOXO Paul & Sheryl

I don't understand how Sheryl keeps every hair in place.....always looking as though she just stepped out of a beauty parlor. That is a beautiful shot of your boat at 0:33 Paul. 400 nights at sea or 1.1 years in 29 years of cruising.....I would have guessed more.

Noticed you have those new sails that look more like racing sails. Are these ones you have good for long term cruising? Are they lighter? Do they take up less space in the furling mast?
