Reberth - Return from refuelling. Next stop Tortola.

Our crew has safely arrived and the preparations nearly completed. This morning saw Reberth refuelled ready for our very early departure from Antigua on Sunday. The temperature here on Antigua is thirty four degrees, which makes for debilitating working conditions. Such that this afternoon we are sitting relaxing till it becomes a bit cooler. Sounds good to me!!After all the preparations it will be good to "get on the road".photo. read more...

Andromeda of Plymouth - The countdown contiues

We have missions to follow, and, yes, the world is a little more orange!So with the auto-pilot installed and the alternator fixed, we planned to head off to the US Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands before heading north once more.We had eventually set off from Trinidad with the idea that we would spend at least a month in the Virgin Islands, 4 weeks cruising then at least a week in Tortola before leaving for Bermuda, in the meantime we had spent 3 weeks in St. Martin....... .On a final raid on the chandlers we saw two very nice orange chairs for the cockpit that had just arrived in Budget Marine – they must have known we’d be around.The trip to the Virgin Islands began quite smoothly but before long the sea was rolly again, we had the genoa out and the mizzen up and were. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 110; Agent Visits, Electricity at Dock Problem, Folie a Deux Visits for Dinner, and First East German Contact; Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Woke up at 2:30 AM. Indigestion. Ate too much for dinner the night before. Took computer to cockpit and typed up logs for last 2 days. Went back to bed at 5:00 AM. Up at 7:50 AM when our agent, Laurent, arrived at boat. We gave him the stainless steel anchor roller, which needed a weld and a backing plate made for it. He said he'd have it back to us in a day or two. Joel then went to the nearby Mobil station and dropped off our propane tank to get filled with propane. We had to switch to our alternate propane tank, which was filled with butane instead of propane, because that's all we could fill it with in Nuku Hiva. You can fill a propane tank with butane because butane has a lower psi. But you can not fill a butane tank with propane, as its not safe to do so. Butane burns less. read more...

Persistent Lady - Two weeks until Bermuda :)

So how do I begin? It's hard to keep a log a week into a trans-Atlantic sailing trip, but I will try my best. For the past week I have been living aboard Persistent Lady. The boat is a 1981 Hardin 45. The boat is amazing with just as amazing owners. I willskip the shake down trip we had from New York to Portsmouth (Hopefully will be told in a future post) and skip to what happened today. We had a lot of work to complete on Persistent Lady. The trip down south created a big mess on the boat; which we have beentrying to clean up for the past two days. We have gotten to the point where we can all consider the boat a truly comfortable home for the next few months. Today Andreas and I took out the dinghy for a ride to the nearest mall to buy some new equipment forthe trip. Long story short,. read more...

Jade - Log written Monday, 1pm

Jade has been sailing at or near hull speed for three days straight. She is handling well today on a triple reefed main and a full Yankee. Swells from the rear port quarter give us a roll to starboard occasionally and then we glide to an upright position. Occasionally when the swell is big enough water washes over the deck and the starboard toe rail skims through the water.  The sensation is like a smooth galloping horse. We have owned Jade for 5 years. We spent four years upgrading her, especially focusing on replacing the chain plates and rigging. Since January 2011 we have cruised on Jade up the east coast as far as Maine. However, ocean sailing is a completely different and wonderful experience. It is incredibly rewarding and satisfying to experience this boat for an extended. read more...

Celebrate - Tahiti Reef Sharks etc.

I went for a scuba dive last Saturday and the dive boat anchored just outside the reef near the village of Puna'auia.You could see the bottom clearly with the depth about 40 ft.when we reached the bottom, the white-tipped reef sharks came by on queue.Several came by to check us out, determined we were too big to eat, and departed.For the remainder of the dive, we explored the edge of the reef to the drop-off.Visibility was outstanding and I saw a number of new reef fish species as well as all the usual suspects.This was my first dive with just a shorty instead of a full wetsuit and it was wonderfully warm with the water about 28C (82F). I had a grand time! Charlie. read more...

Defyr - Towards Bermuda: day 1

Today (wed 23th of April) we left from Georgetown, Bahamas. We were looking at the weather for a week and were getting excited to get a good weather window just when the rest of the crew arrived to Georgetown. We were so concentrated on the high winds near Bermuda and how to avoid them that didn't really pay enough attention on the fact that there was nearly no wind near Bahamas. So here we are in the stillness of Atlantic motoring away and making the most of a quiet day with culinaristic masterpieces.. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 109; On to Papeete in Tahiti, Anchor Roller Problem & Follie a Deux Dinner Party; Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Up at 6:30 AM. Stephen already up drinking coffee. An early breakfast today as we're moving from Moorea to Papeete, Tahiti, only 10 miles away. Before leaving we had to deflate the dingy, take off the oars and seat, dry it off and then roll it up in its stowage wrap, and put it below. Then we had to weigh anchor, which took about 10 minutes; mainly due to the mud that Joel had to 'bucket off' the chain and anchor. Once underway we put up the mainsail and headed out of the bay, following the large catamaran Vivo which had departed ahead of us. We put 2 fishing lines in the water before we left the bay, and once thru the pass, with breakers on each side of us crashing into the reef, we emptied the holding tank and started making water with our water maker. Water production was very good,. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 108; Last Day in Moorea, Made Bread and Bali Hai Pool; Monday, April 21, 2014

Up at 7:00 AM. Best morning in Moorea so far. No cloud, which means no raid and no wind. Beautiful. Breakfast consisted of eggs and bacon, plus chilled grapefruit and French bread. After breakfast Stephen and Joel took the dingy and headed down the bay, looking for a store to buy some beer. They returned a couple of hours later empty handed. Seems the Monday after Easter is a national holiday. Stores closed. A bigger holiday than Good Friday. However, they managed to borrow 2 six packs from Nexus. I worked on itinerary for David and Paul, arriving late April 26 from Chicago and Phoenix. Early afternoon I took Tracy Ramsey's bread recipe and made my first loaf of bread on boat. Missing a couple of items, like a mixing bowl and had to use butter in place of shortening. One of the problems. read more...

Persistent Lady - New Yoek Is Behind Us Now

Tuesday, April 22, 2014Well, New York is behind us, and the adventure has begun.  Liberty Landing Marina in NY Harbor is truly one of the nicest experiences we have had and we thoroughly enjoyed our year there.  All the people were great and the marina itself was outstanding.  We left Saturday and set sail for Portsmouth VA.  Our weather router, Chris Parker, said we should expect about a day of 30-35 knot winds, preceded by and followed by light air.  He was right.  We had some tough weather, and we had an issue with the sheets being caught in the dinghy lashing, so we had to motor through the weather; definitely not a good way to go, but we survived and even had a glorious sail after the conditions abated enough to send Jake forward to free the. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 107; Tough Morning at Anchorage, Easter Sunday Services, Lauren and Brian Visit & Chef Stephen Strikes Again; Sunday, April 20, 2014

Up at 3:08 AM. No, that's not a typo. That's what happens when you go to bed too early. I typed three logs that I was behind on and did a bunch of emails. As the morning sun approached it got cloudy, windy and started to rain. Unlike other cloud meeting mountain situations, the clouds and associated rain and wind were from a 'larger' system. The wind began to howl in the bay, and the boat swung back and forth as the wind swirled down the mountain passes. The wind increased in gusts to over 30, probably some over 40. The anchor chain, instead of lying limp and weighty at the bow, was stretched out to its maximum. Its times like this that your sole thought is, is the anchor going to hold? Since the bottom is mud, we should be OK. We're parked closer than we should to land, with a coral. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 106; Computer Problem, Belvedere View Point, Looking for the Waterfall, Top Dive & Stephen Cooks Fabulous Dinner; Saturday, April 19, 2014

Up at 6:07 AM. Turned navigation computer on at 7:28 AM and couldn't get the cursor to work. Microsoft had just 'updated' some programs. Thanks Microsoft. Joel finally fixed the problem by pushing the 'windows' keyboard button and doing a regular shutdown using something other than the on/off button.We left for an island tour in the Avis rental at 9:00 AM. We drove by a spectacular view spot where busses and cars had pulled over to take pictures. A high overlook over the ocean, with fabulous colored reefs and thatch huts (hotel rooms) over the water. These thatched huts have glass for some of their floor space, so you can see fish swim by from your room. How cool is that! An expensive resort. Probably the most expensive one on the island. The view was spectacular, and included some. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 105; Car Rental, Good Friday Services and Bali Hai Hotel Party; Friday, April 18, 2014

Up at 4:48 AM. Saw a cruise ship all lit up crossing from west to east towards Tahiti. Went back to bed and got up at 7:12 AM. Went to the Mobil gas station 100 yards from us in search of eggs and bread. No luck. Returned with 3 glorious French pastries, though. Received email from Lauren and Brian. Young couple off of Ko-Ko. Looking for another boat as Ko-Ko is ending their participation in the rally prematurely and returning home. The boat will eventually be shipped home on a freighter at a cost of $50,000+. Lauren and Brian may join American Spirit II for 2 months from Fiji to Vanuatu. The hotel, which is allowing the rally boats to use their dingy dock, called Avis Car Rental for me and I was told that I would be picked up and driven to the car rental agency by the ferry dock in 20. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 104; Arrived Captain Cook's Bay, Moorea & Pearls; Thursday, April 17, 20114

Stephen had flashes of lightning on the 3:00-6:00 AM watch. I had him wake me at 5:45 AM so I could watch the sun rise, looking for my second green flash sun rise. No luck. Clouds on the horizon.Wind 8 knots, speed 6.0 knots. ETA Moorea 4:45 PM. Skylark, another Rally boat, 1.3 miles away from us to leeward. Firefly is 3.7 miles behind us. At 6:18 AM I increased the engine RPM from 1,600 to 1,800 to give us .2 or 3 more knots in speed, to make sure we arrive in Moorea in daylight. That increase gets us in one hour sooner.7:10 AM Land Ho! Sighted Tahiti 48 miles away. Still no sign of Moorea. Clouds on that part of horizon. Have to take what you can get. Mount Orohena rises to 7,340 feet on Tahiti. I could see the lower left and right sides, and extreme top, of this mountain, as the. read more...

Starblazer - 20/04/2014 – Cruising the beautiful Tuamotus

First an apology for the long silence.  I thought I had written a blogwhen we arrived in Fakarava but the computer thinks otherwise.  Also, happybelated birthday greetings to Phil.  We were a tad busy on the 16th but didthink about you, explanations in the next blog.   The Tuamotus are low lying atolls, typically a string of coral islandsjoined together with coral reefs to enclose a relatively large area ofwater.  There are often only one or two passes inside the reef, oftentortuous though sometimes wide and straight.  What they have in common is astrong current which creates standing wave so you really need to get the tidesright even though the tidal difference at springs is 30 cm!   Fakarava, our first destination in this group of islands, had. read more...

Free & BrEasy - Flying with Sharks

Fakaruva is home to pearl farms which produce very high quality pearls with unusual colours. Hopeful that we might get lucky with some natural pearls we all went on an organisedscuba dive to a reef just off the North Pass where we had come in with Free and Br"Easy".Before reaching the dive spot we stopped at a large cruise ship, which had anchored in the lagoon the previous night, to pick up more divers, and were surprised to find ourselves being filmed as part of aDiscovery Channel(Canada) production. They even asked Roger for a few comments, on film, so watch out for a new television star! We did not find pearls on the dive but the different corals and fish shoals more than compensated, with an occasional blacktip reef shark and giant Napoleon Grouper thrown in.That night we met up. read more...

Flomaida II - Maeva (Willkommen) Tuamotus- das etwas andere Paradies 7.4.-20.4. HAPPY- GO- LUCKY ist das Motto der Bewohner von Französisch Polynesien

Mal wieder ist die Zeit wie im Fluge vergangen. Es ist soviel zu sehen und zu verarbeiten....Die Legende sagt, dass der Gott Tukerai das Meer geschüttelt hat und dabei 78 MOTUS (Gesamtgröße 880 km2 Landfläche/ ca 16000 Bewohner) über 800 000 km2! verschüttet hat. Die Tuamotus sind bekannt als ein gefährliches Archipel für Segler,da die Inseln von Weitem kaum sichtbar sind, die vorgelagerten Riffs überspült sind und die wenigen schmalen Passagen, um in die Lagune zu kommen, sehr starke Strömungen haben durch Ebbe und Flut und Mondeinfluss. Unser 1. Atoll ist AHE. Die Atolle sind kreisrund und gebildet aus lauter kleinen MOTU - Inselchen aufgereiht wie auf einer Perlenschnur.Das was bei den Marquesas oberhalb des Wassers ist, liegt hier unter Wasser.Ahe ist eines der kleineren Atolle mit. read more...

Firefly - Bali Hai, Moorea

We came through the pass in Bai D'Opunohu in late afternoon of Thursday 17th April and felt like we were sailing into the set of South Pacific. The memorable green mountainous back drop surrounds the bay. Unlike the Tuamotus there was no current at the pass and soon after entering we tucked comfortably behind the reef just alongside Skyelark who came in an hour before us. Original plans to head ashore in search of a restaurant were abandoned after our first rum and coke, so we had supper on board (Peter's seafood chowder) and then were invited on board Skelark for flambee bananas (with rum of course). Over rum and bananas we planned an early walk for Good Friday - up the mountains nearby to a viewpoint.The 'walk' described as arduous in the Lonely Planet guide lived up to it's name and. read more...

Firefly - Passage to Moorea

Our night crossing proved quite eventful but generally lacking in wind. We managed a few hours of sailing interspersed will long periods of motoring. David saw the moon rise and it was red in colour; we were forewarned of this rare phenomenon by one of our dive instructors in Rangiroa. The watches were also interrupted by lightning flashes and rain showers so a memorable night all round!Shortly after daybreak we Tahiti came in to view and then just off our track the small and only atol in the Windward Islands called Teti'aroa this is famous for being bought by Marlon Brando after filming Mutiny on the Bounty in Tahiti. There are no passes into the atoll's lagoon and this has help keep its almost unique biodiversity. We have read that there is an eco- resort planned here to be called 'The. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 103; Tuomoto Islands Summary, Departed Rangiroa to Moorea, Almost Whale Collision?, Lightning & Full Orange Moon Rise; Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Since we're leaving Rangiroa this morning early, I thought I'd summarize my thoughts regarding the Tuomotos Archipelago, or Dangerous Archipelago. We visited two atolls, Ahe and Rangiroa; entering and leaving thru passes with a lot of current; as much as 4.5 knots; against and with the current. However, the French mark these passes quite well with range markers, and I believe theuse of the word 'dangerous' is overstated and no longer applicable. Exciting would be a better word. Our electronic charts were quite accurate, more so than the Galapagos. The biggest surprise in these atolls was the size of the coral heads, which on Ahe rise up from 40 and 120 feet to within 10 feet of the surface or less. And having your anchor chain wrap around one of these coral heads can lead to an extended. read more...

Persistent Lady - On Leaving New York Harbor

We have been in NY Harbor for the past year at Liberty Landing Marina with beautiful views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty, two excellent restaurants, and located in the middle of one of the nicest state parks in New Jersey; however, we have spent very little time enjoying these amenities, as we have been working constantly since we arrived. The list is too long to go into but some of the highlights include new Selden masts (we are a ketch), storm shutters, SSB, Satellite phone, AIS, new stove and head, fabrication of life raft mounting platform, new sub panel to handle all the added stuff and nine new 12 volt outlets. This barely scratches the surface, but we have really been busy all year long. Actually, saying that we have been busy is not quite. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 102; Trip to Passe de Avatoru, Stephen's Dive in Passe de Avatoru, Beach Party and Getting Ready to Depart; Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Rain squall at 4:04 AM. High winds. Had to close hatches to keep rain out.Up at 7:00 AM; and took Stephen to Top Dive in dingy at 7:50 AM. Once back at the boat at 8:10 AM put laundry up to dry on life lines. Stephen's dive trip to Passe de Avatoru was eventful, as he saw and swam with 4 dolphins, a 6 -7 foot silver tip shark and a school of barracuda. Stephen mentioned to his dive guide that we were planning the other night to do a night snorkel of The Aquarium, and he (the guide) indicated that really big sharks come into the pass and The Aquarium area, even the 'shallow' side of The Aquarium; and that subsequently going into the water there would be dangerous. He also said To Dive didn't do night dives because of the liability involved. At 10:55 AM Christoph and Dagmar from Flomaida. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 101; Laundry, Drift Snorkel in Passe de Tiputa , How to Climb Back into a Dingy and French Dinner Ashore; Monday, April 14, 2014

Steve up at 6:30 AM. I got up 7:00 AM. Early breakfast because Stephen, whose handle is 'The Diver,' had an 8:00 AM dive today. After dropping Stephen off in the dingy at Top Dive, I dingied over to Folie a Deux and then Nexus; planning today's activities. Made a run to the grocery store on Folie a Deux's dingy, where I bought beer and junk food; and filled up 2 five gallon clear plastic containers with 'cistern' water from a hose at the grocery store. An employee in the store drove our beer and some groceries to the dingy dock located about a block away. The 10 gallons of water I got was not going to be used for drinking but for doing laundry.From 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM Joel and I did laundry. The process, as now refined, is as follows. Remember, we're at an anchorage so we have little. read more...

Firefly - Heading for Moorea

The last day at Rangiroa was spent diving the two passes, seeing more dolphins , sharks and a variety of tropical fish. David is an experienced hand at diving but for Paul and Peter after 10 dives are gradually gaining experience and confidence. At one point Taku our Japanese dive instructor had us doing somersaults and back rolls in 1000m of water; great fun! At sunset we joined a number of our rally mates on a beach for sundowners, chat and discussion of our future plans. At this type of informal gathering you get the true spirit and camaraderie of the rally. Many thanks for Ness and Sheldon on Nexus for organising this one. The evening finished off at Lilly's a local restaurant with Pat and Stewart from Brizo enjoying Mahi Mahi with either vanilla or curry sauce - delicious. Our. read more...

Firefly - Relaxing in Rangiroa

Firefly arrived in Rangiroa on the morning of Sunday 12th April. Leaving Fakarava via the north passe, due to the flood there was some disturbed water but we managed to sail through it ok - but did so very carefully. From then on we had a dream passage - broad reaching and then running wing on wing. The moon was practically full and the wind never went above 20knots or dropped below 10 and we were gently weaving between the various atolls in our path, leaving about 10 miles of sea room for each one. Despite a lot of information to the contrary - so far the Tuamotos have been ok to navigate around with the GPS spot on position wise and the passes marked well with transits and posts.The anchorage at Rangiroa is just east of Passe Tiputa. Its lined with white sandy beaches and palm trees. read more...

Free & BrEasy - We came, we saw, we snorkeled

We have arrived in Fakarava which is one of the bigger coral atolls in the Tuamotu Archipelago. The passage over from the Marquesas was a little tedious if we are honest. On the previous passages, we have been so spoilt with good sailing conditions that we forgot who is boss - the wind! We set out from Nuku Hiva confidently expecting a 3-4 day passage but light winds pushed our event horizon to an 6 day passage. Luckily we had stocked up with lots of fruit from the market so we filled the days with a fruit festival as everything ripened at once. Mangoes and Bananas featured in the menu but the large juicy grapefruit took the prize for fruit of the week. On the way we received an email from a fellow world ARC boat that was completing the leg single handed as his crew had jumped ship on an. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 100; The Water Taxi, The Aquarium and Swimming with Sharks; Sunday, April 13, 2014

Got up at 3:35 AM. Awakened by someone using the head at that time. Couldn't go back to sleep. The aft cabin I sleep in is adjacent to the head. Breakfast at 7:00 AM because Stephen was going on a dive and Joel was going to Flomaida to help with an engine problem they have. I departed at 8:00 AM with Tracey from Folie a Deux to find an ATM, to locate the Catholic Church and determine what time the Palm Sunday services are going to be held. In order to do this, we had to take a water taxi across the pass to the town on the other side. 650 francs round trip. A little over $7.00.We found the ATM, the church and that the services were at 6:00 PM. While on the 'other side' of the pass we saw Caduceus motorsail thru the pass. It looked like they were barely moving as they fought their way. read more...
