Getting ready (II)


Steven, Tim, Per Arne and Albin are all very ready for the Atlantic crossing. Hoping to cheer you all when reaching Trinidad in some 16 days or so.
Fingers crossed! 😉

Getting ready… (I)

wpid-wp-1421682798148.jpegNow, as her ownership and the kid are heading for colder climate while I’m left here by myself with Eskalope, it leaves me some extra time for maintenance, improvements and just enjoying the scenery. Not quite alone, though. Tim and Steven arrived last Saturday (so far residing in a city hotel), and Albin will hopefully arrive in just a couple of days. After which we’ll be reeeeeeeeaaadyyyyyy!

Anyway. not gonna bother everyone with maintenance projects, so here are some glimpses of the view instead!wpid-wp-1421683193103.jpegwpid-wp-1421681415575.jpegwpid-wp-1421681398229.jpeg


Monte Verde

Fin dagstur til Sao Vicentes hĂžyeste fjell – Monte Verde. Teoretisk er utsikten upĂ„klagelig, men pĂ„ Kapp Verde er det nesten alltid disig. Vinden blĂ„ser konstant inn rĂždt stĂžv og sand fra Sahara. Dette er ikke en av de verste … Continue reading

Kort tur i farvannet mellom Sao Vicente og Santo Antao for Ă„ sikre at alle i mannskapet skulle fĂ„ seilopplevelser! Charlotte styrer….veldig! 😉 Selvsagt runder vi av med en paella pĂ„ Cafe Royal etterpĂ„! 😛


God tur til gutta pĂ„ Mare!

Har hatt noen hyggelige dager i Mindelo sammen med mannskapet pĂ„ Mare. Vi Ăžnsker riktig god tur videre til Fogo, og deretter Brasil! 🙂


Santa Luzia to Mindelo, Sao Vicente, two days ago

The deserted beaches of Santa Luzia stretch for miles and miles in lunar landscape The lighthouse on Ponta Machado, Sao Vicente  A bit scheptic about strong currents and poor charts But the scenery is amazing! Porto Grande, Mindelo


Wims videos

During the passage from the Canaries to Cape Verde, we were lucky enough to enjoy the company of Belgian co-sailor Wim, who also took a lot of excellent footage.

Uploading the large files of video has proven a bit tricky using only marina wifi’s. But from time to time we get lucky. We will therefore publish some of these in retrospect every once in a while.



Fantastisk nyttĂ„rsfeiring i Mindelo!
