Nautical Miles Sailed

Countries Visited

A week on Curacao

A week on Curacao

You don’t need an engine to get from Bonaire to Curacao. You could float there in your bath-tub if you so desired, because you have wind, waves and current helping you along. We checked out from Bonaire on Friday evening and let go of the mooring Saturday morning...

Relaxing on Bonaire

Relaxing on Bonaire

After the month of working non-stop on the boat on Trinidad and the strenuous maiden voyage, we needed to kick back and enjoy ourselves. Relaxing on Bonaire is the perfect remedy and a great way to forget about time. It is a wonderful place to come with a sailboat,...

The maiden voyage

The maiden voyage

The day had finally come to leave Trinidad for our maiden voyage. We had finished all the pressing projects, had provisioned and were eager to get on our way. The final thing on our list was to check out. We planned to check out at 15:00, because if we were checked...

On the hard in Trinidad

The adventure begins

Sailaway Party

Sailaway Party

When we first started talking about having a sailaway party, we guesstimated that somewhere between 30 - 50 people would be a realistic headcount. We talked about having it at a few different venues and after some deliberation, decided to go all in, and both get a...

We’re going sailing

We’re going sailing

It's finally official: Margrethe and I are going sailing. I have been dreaming about and planning a new sailing trip, since I got home from the last trip in 2010. Margrethe wanted to explore the globe from the ocean after sailing in Croatia and Hawaii. She caught me...

Seilturen starter i mai

Da er det endelig offisielt: Margrethe og meg skal på seiltur ... en laaaaang seiltur. Jeg hadde planlagt å dra på langtur i 2017, så det kom litt overraskende på meg når Margrethe spurte om vi kunne kaste loss allerede i 2016. Det tok meg ikke mange nanosekundene å...
