He is probably sailing now today... somewhere way up high. (he is missed)
Manel has sailed the coast of Spain and Portugal up and down, during his teen years. He has never stopped sailing, when time allows he will be sailing.
In February of this year- He sailed his beloved "phenix" to Tobago. in the Caribbean islands.
Starting from Lisbon to the Canaries- Then from the Canaries to Cabo Verde Islands. From Cabo Verde Islands - direct crossing to Trinidad and Tobago. - "Pheonix" is now moored in Tobago.
My son in Law Paul, my son Filipe and my grandson Thomas were crew. So much to share with us on his return, what a great time they all had together.
His departure was delayed.. due to the sudden death his father, who was going along with them.
We thought that maybe he wouldn't sail.. but it was his father Manuel's wish , that he sailed.
As a family, we have had and still lead a life so full, full of love and generosity, of tales and adventure . A full life indeed.
