Red Ruth
Hi Peter. We were in Madeira mid April for a trekking week. Went down toFunchal Marina to try and find RR and were told she had been moved. Would have loved another sail on her. Heigh-ho, Should have read your blog!! Great you are still having fun on her. Liked the pic of the spinnaker flying. Off to the Norwegian Fjiords next week sailing from Portsmouth. Hope the weather holds. Best wishes

Hi Chris, So sorry that we missed you. Such a shame as we would have loved to have you on board again. RR is based at the Quinta do Lorde Marina on the east of the Island. Enjoy your trip to the Norway - fair winds.

Hi Peter. Glad you are still having fun on RR. and a FIRST wow. Pity about your Azores trip. I took her there in 2000 - Ponta Delgada - on one of the AZAB races. Think we came 3rd!Its worth the trip. I'm still on the water though now in friends old classic boat racing. Good fun, less comfortable!
Best wishes

Great to hear from you Chris and glad you are still out sailing. We have had a good year with Red Ruth - conditions here are most suitable for her. If you are ever out this way, give us a call. We would be delighted to take you out on her again.

Hi Chris, so good to hear from you. RR is still going well. She had a new coat of awlgrip 2 years ago and looks well. Most of the sailing is in local regattas, although last year we also partook in the Canaries to Madeira regatta, coming 3rd overall. As Lorraine has said you would be most welcome to come aboard if you ever find yourself in Madeira (RR usually out of the water in February). If you look on "Bluewaterva.com" website we have a flat available in Funchal as well. Perhaps we will see you sometime here. Kind regards Peter

regatta during our holiday on Madeira
Dear Peter and Lorraine,

As we already told you, we had a great day on your ship when you invited us to join you for a regatta in Funchal in the beginning of May. It gave our holiday a very special touch! Thanx! And also to Jean Paul and Bruce.

We wanted to send some pictures to you, but I can't find your emailadresses anymore. So, can you please mail me your emailadres, so we can send the pictures? Hope to hear from you!

Mieke and Michel, The Netherlands

Hi Peter and Lorraine, landed on your blog completely by chance, courtesy of Google. I also sailed here last year and am now living on a farm in Santo, sans boat.(Having seen your photo I think I saw you at the Santo market last week?) Would be fun to meet up for a chat if you'd like, Regards Sarah
