The blog "Adventures on S/V(1) Trovoada" was created to recount the voyaging, sailing and living aboard a 31 feet boat. Trovoada is a Bavaria 31 - a german-made sloop, known for its robustness and cabin comfort.  We had a bunch of sailing adventures on the past couple of years and, from now on, I will share them on this blog. Enjoy!

The next Adventure

Next week, I will leave on the longest journey I have ever made on my sailboat, "Trovoada". This trip will take us from Lisbon (Portugal) to Valencia (Spain) trough the Strait of Gibraltar.

On this journey we will sail south from Lisbon on the North Atlantic, following the Portuguese coastline and then, after crossing Cape St. Vincent, we will turn East and head to the Mediterranean. After passing the Strait, we will sail along the Spanish coast to Valencia, More than simply an 800 nautical miles trip, it will be an adventure, facing the winter weather and many more challenges on the way.

If you want to know what will happen, just follow the blog,  In the meantime...
Fair Winds and Following Seas!

(1) For those unfamiliar with the maritime terminology, S/V means Sailing Vessel.
