We continue our downwind passage around Cape S. Vicente and chart a direct course towards Rabat, Morocco. With good winds we are making good time, but the swells are high and are hitting us from an uncomfortable angle.Read More
Maik's Navigation Corner - How to Skipper a Boat
For the more experienced sailor, Maik’s logbook contains excerpts from our real log book. In addition, he presents how-to instruction of the deeper, more technical details of sailing using our real-life data as a basis for discussion.
This is valuable information by sailors for sailors. Be sure and check out Maik’s Navigation Corner videos!
As everybody keeps asking us about our route, Michelle talked me into launching this video even though it is not even a Beta version yet!
However this short video shows our route and some principle thoughts to it. Of course it is subject to change, especially since it seems we are running late getting the boat ready. Even though it keeps being one of the hottest summers we have ever had here in Germany, the days are already getting shorter and if we are not out of here by mid August, we may not be able to make it past the winter in this season - with the Bay of Biscay being the bottleneck.
Also our beloved British friends take the dog stuff bloodily seriously so we may need to skip the UK in favor of France. Check out Michelle's Logbook for updates about that. Enjoy, and we are looking forward to your comments!
