THAT'S MY WORLD TUESDAY # 27

(Photo by Sailor Girl)
O Varino «Boa Viagem», da Câmara Municipal da Moita, comandado pelo Senhor João Gregório (proprietário da canoa «Canastrinha», construída na Moita em 1987) e a canoa «Salvaram-me», comandada pelo Professor Luís «Rock» Filipe, proprietário e arrais da mesma, na procissão fluvial de Sábado passado. A canoa «Salvaram-me» é um dos ilustres membros da Marinha do Tejo e foi construída na Moita em 1968. Foi resgatada pelo Luís Filipe, que a salvou, graças à vontade dos Homens...
The Varin «Boa Viagem» («Good Trip»), property of the City Council of Moita, under the command of Mr. João Gregório (owner of the sailing barge «Canastrinha», built in Moita in 1987 and member of the Tagus Navy) and the sailing barge «Salvaram-me» («They Saved me»), commanded by Professor Luis «Rock» Filipe, also owner and skipper, during the fluvial procession last Saturday. «Salvaram-me» is also a member of the Tagus Navy, and was built in 1968 in Moita. She was refitted by Luis Filipe, who saved her with the help and goodwill of Men... A contribution to THAT'S MY WORLD TUESDAY!
