Sailing to Alcochete – a how-to guide

On Sunday November 8 an intrepid band of Lisbon ISC explorers decided to sail across the sea – just across the Mar de Palha to Alcochete admittedly, but a new route for Club all the same. As it’s a trip which needs to be timed carefully (the shallows on the other side can be tricky), the skipper of the outing, Nuno Elias, has kindly put together a ‘how-to’ guide for other skippers and crew.

Happy reading!
