Frilæns III - Happy Holidays
Hi to All our Supporters,Now already 6 days in Saint Lucia, after a very warm welcome and some celebrations we are now preparing Frilaens for a new crossing.The last few days of the crossing were very pleasant, with variable winds from NE-ENE 15 to 22 knots. We took our great spinnaker out. We saw land at sunset and later the lights from Martinique. The last 5 hours where very long because of lack of wind. Our arriving time was after 17 days, on the 14.12.12 at 02.09....... o'clock.We want to say thanks to all the friends and supporters who sailed and suffered with us on this long trip.Now we fix all the damage - in the end it was not too complicated. read more...
