Great Escape of Southampton - Day 13 15 06 76 N 40 03 23 W

Good progress today. The jib was poled out overnight. We steered to thelight of the new crescent moon before it and neighboring Venus set aroundmidnight. Then nothing but blackness until dawn at 6.30 am. .We have adjustedthe ship’s clock to more nearly reflect local time so we are now GMT –2.    The spinnaker is hoisted at first light – the pattern ofthe last several days. And then an  easterly of about 15 knots propels usdirectly toward St Lucia at 6-8 knots. It has been sweltering. A sprinkle ofrain this morning was welcome relief.  Rations are holding up and we are still eating well, although theproportion of fresh food is diminishing rapidly. We still have half a head ofcabbage, some onions and a few eggs.So, when are we going to get there. We have yet. read more...

Free Spirit - Friday 6th December

Still no wind.  Spirits are low with still1200 miles to go.  The ARC forecast of 19th December for our arrival in StLucia didn't help!  That means another 12 days at sea!  To add to ourtroubles the 2nd gas bottle ran out today!  This means we have only enoughgas for 6 more days, calculated on our present consumption. So now we have toration and conserve what little gas we have.  Cooking  is becoming areal challenge. Sushianyone?. read more...

Resolute of Thames - Day of reckoning

As the last nautical miles fly (226 remain at this moment) by it is natural that we are excitedly reckoning up how many miles we have done and how many more to be done.We are also reckoning up how much wear and tear has been sustained to ROT (Resolute of Thames - affectionately abbreviated by our Ozzie friends aboard Fanny Fisher) and what a list of priority repairs and replacements to be faced when we arrive.Looks like our Christmas funds will be casually wiped out..but heigh ho!Skipper reckons ARC should initiate a sea-miles reward scheme.Seamiles hard won on their rallies could be converted into points and what do points make? Prizes! Yes, you get the picture.Skipper had in mind that these prizes would comprise anything from free coffee or cocktails at any appointed hostelry or for. read more...

Azzurra - Day 15 – waiting for NE wind-

Position Sunday, 08.12.2013 09:00 UTC:19”56’.627 N, 038”25’.993 WDTW St. Lucia: 1334 smWe are on the edge of a big deep pressure area with lots of squalls and heavy rain. It is a wet course. Most of it we were able to navigate around. Some of it hit us. It is just some sweat water coming from above. The major part of water, salt water we get from the downer part. Due to the healing resulted by the upwind course we are unable to empty the bilge. We have to wait until we run a downwind course. It looks that this will not happen before Sunday noon. We will continue South until the wind will let us. North seems not to be an option; we would run into a heavy storm. The whole day we run thru more or less dirty weather. During the night we are unable. read more...

Aspen - Log 15 Sunday 8 Dec; The Days Go By

It looks like I said it was Friday yesterday for this log when in fact it was Saturday.Wow, how time flies when we are rolling along with the seas.The winds are still very light and we are making slow progress as you can see from our position report with the ARC fleet tracker.We don't believe the Trade Winds actually exist, at least not any longer.The oscillation of the north pole must be the cause for the winds to have disappeared or maybe the magnetic poles are starting to reverse themselves as they have done so many times in past geologic history as evidenced from the core samples taken along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that we are now nearly sailing over.Whatever the reason there is just not a lot of wind out here and the miles creep by for. read more...

Second Wind - Message from Chris Diggins

Cruising chute - the sequelA curious mix of confidence and desperation led to the brave decision to fly the chute throughout the night.With a small lamp rigged to allow us to see what was going on in the event of the helmsman falling to sleep, we leapt into the unknown. The result was a surprisingly easy sail maintaining over 5 kts in very light but strangely reliable winds. Fortunately the weather was benign and we didn't get to test the quick release shackle.So far there is no sign of the forecast "hole in the wind" and well be happy if this is something the good old forecasters got wrong, however, even with the now idolised Cruising Chute we'll need a bit more wind if we are to enjoy any of the complimentary rum and celebrations at St Lucia.. read more...

Sephina of Beaumaris - The Real Day 14.... Hot Hot Hot

The Real Day 14.... Hot Hot Hot After a very humid night last night and a boring, uneventful watch, I woke up to find it raining this morning.  I hate rain as it makes sitting on deck very unpleasant.  We settled into our daily routines but there was no chance of me hanging any washing out.   As we’ve nearly come to the end of week 2 I thought it would be a good idea to check on the snack rations. So far, so good. We’ve nearly finished the Week 2 box of goodies and haven’t broken in to Week 3’s box. (Unless someone has been sneaky behind my back!). And, we still have the emergency snack box well hidden and untouched. There looked like there’d been a murder in the shower room this morning. There were streaks of red running down one of the walls. read more...

Challenger 3 - living the dream

DAY 13 Another day, another sunrise. Challenger 3 continues to motor along at a steady 7 knots, chasing the winds that will blow us to paradise. We continue to follow the modified watch system and all aboard are enjoying the extra free time by sleeping, reading and kicking back in their own ways. I find it surprising at how tired we all were initially and realized the fatigue was there only once we had a chance to break from our routine of watches. Whilst off watch the foredeck is proving to be a popular choice for crew to get away from the cockpit, curl up in a sail and doze, sheltered from the heat of the midday sun.It’s a great feeling having the sun and warmth for company, although pay her too much attention and you will get burnt! It’s easy to forget it’s. read more...

Arkouda - Day 12 (or 14?) How time flies

13 36 N 30 25 WI swear that I counted the days since we left when I sent the blog yesterday. I guess I subtracted the days that we spent in the Verdes.We are sailing, albeit very, very slowly, headed WSW.We are headed south still to try to avoid the even lighter winds predicted for the next few days, and hopefully the adverse (predicted west to east at 14 N) winds.We are still making progress...the true wind is down to 7-8 kts so I guess that I should be thankful for 4-5 kts that we are moving.We have had quite a number of hitchhikers and stowaways on this adventure.The first were these little green caterpillars that stowed away in the basil and coriander that I planted for fresh herbs.I bought these cute little 3 inch pots at .50 euros each, stuck them in a bowl, and the coriander took. read more...

Wir wollen das vor uns liegende Windloch im Süden umfahren umdann mit dem stärkeren Passatwind St. Lucia direkt anzusteuern. MeinSkipper und der Teilzeit Navigator der Crew, Gunther, sind vollerZuversicht das das im Moment wieder einmal die einzig richtige Routenwahlist um Motorstunden zu vermeiden. Wie aus den Funksprüchen zu hören warliegen viele Schiffe in der Flaute und treiben, da sie keinen oder nichtausreichend Diesel haben um aus dem großen Loch wieder herauszukommen.Da die Motorstunden ja als Strafe bei der Endabrechnung gewertet werden,wird erst nach der Ankunft das Ergebnis festliegen.

Starblazer - 8 December Cava for breakfast!

At 0643 Saturday morning we reached the imaginary line drawn on the ocean to mark halfway.We chose a position 1,375 miles from St Lucia, assuming 2,750 miles in total.Our GPS thought it was 2,680 miles from the start line, but then the machine thinks we can sail over land! Just to confuse matters, the ship’s log read 1,639 miles travelled through the water which doesn’t take into account the miles the current has carried us.The one certain fact is that we have less distance to go than we have sailed already.We celebrated with Cava at breakfast in lieu of fruit juice.During the afternoon we had several minor problems, now all sorted.We decided to gybe the sails again to get a bit more south into our course which isn’t on a direct line to St Lucia but might help us miss a big wind. read more...

Blue Ocean - Day 14: Spinnaker gets a well deserved rest

After several days of flying the spinnaker in light to moderate winds,tonight we got more than 30knots. Time to take the spinnaker down. All hands ondeck at 06:30 to handle the blue beast.   Successfully wrestled into its sock and taken down, we are now running withall working sails set and still making 9 knots plus towards St. Lucia.Better progress than we had hoped, our average speed is now back ontarget.

Athena of Southampton - log 7 – Sunday December 8th 2013

We sat in the cockpit the otherevening as the sun set after dinner and discussed how lucky we are to be here onan evening such as this. The boat stretching out ahead of us, under full sail,rising and falling gently on an easy smooth sea as we silently sailed west. Save for the rush of water downeach side, there was just the conversation. No guitars this evening, we havemany more times like this to come before we reached St Lucia. We are indeedprivileged; sailing towards the setting sun.To be able sail like this fordistant shores and for as long as this takes, away from our responsibilities andworking environments, is wonderful opportunity. To be able take this time forourselves is also, in many cases, totally down to the support or indulgence ofour families back at home. Personally. read more...

Webster - Log 17: Its not usually like this around 'ere!

Saturday 7th December: Position 15 32' N 35 20'W. Lovely bright and sunny morning this morning, wind 8-10 knts, too little as usual but we getting used to that. Forecast is for less according to our grib files but that just cant be right, surely?1000 kite went up again and bacon, eggs and beans for brekky - beans has got to be our secret weapon of last resort in these conditions. Jerry then caught a fish - no he hadn't, yes he had, no he hadn't - no he hadn't, just wishful thinking! The wind was following its daily pattern coming up slightly during the early morning and we enjoyedup to 15 knts of breeze and again felt we were on our way hitting 8-9 kts on occasions. When we are going at reasonable speed (and at planning speed) it is surprising how the miles fall away; we are now roughly. read more...

Aditi - Day 13; Unexpected dinner guest

:startAfter shaking out the reef at dawn we glided along all day on an 11-15kn Easterley with swell occasionally shaking the rig. It is the occasional shaking of the rig that causes problems as during the cycle back and forth there are moments of slack. That is when things come undone. And I found a vital bolt on the boom furling universal joint about 50% out of it's thread. Lucky! Now secured with lots of threadlock; pity the manufacturer did not enable the bolts to be pinned or locked.Uneventful, hot and bright day. Came across a trawler, two ships and tailed by a yacht in the distance. Made a new marigold squid but it's now made of dyneema middle cover rather than the stiffer outer cover so the swimming action isn't there. Tried a professional popper lure but no takers.Just starting. read more...

Windleblo - Day Thirteen

Food -- its storage, preparation, and consumption -- occupies a large share of the time on an ocean voyage.Just before shoving off from Las Palmas, we filled Windleblo's holds with all kinds of food. We ordered some meats for delivery to the boat frozen and vacuum packed and we got the guy at the deli counter at the "HiperDino" (the Las Palmas grocery store) to vacuum seal the lunch meats and cheeses we bought there.We managed to fit all the meats and cheeses in the two on board refrigerators, plus the ten or so packs of frozen pre-cooked seal-a-meal dishes. To keep things fresh, we try to open the fridges as little as possible. One is opened several times a day; the other only once every other day or so. So far, so good, as we've had very little spoilage in the meat and cheese. read more...

Idea of London -

A final push towards st lucia, only 150 miles to go, would the last night at sea deliver the usual array of shooting stars, phosphorescence and idle chat between the changing watches? No, it wouldn't. At 2am a squall had developed and all hands were required to pull down the the flogging kite, having blown one in similar circumstances two nights previously the pressure was on to move fast. The team pulled together yet again to pull off a flawless sail drop in rising wind and pouring rain. The rest of the night had each watch receive a soaking under incredibly tricky sailing conditions, dawn was a welcome sight, although the lack of food (down to a few boil-in-the-bags and, rather strangely, a hugh quantity of manchego cheese) had the team thinking. read more...

Swan Valhalla - Log 16 - Nutty Nick

Nick as guest blogger..........this has been the pantsday of the trip, we always need pants days to show up the rest and give us thefull contrast. Today was scorchio, no swimming as we are trying to make bestspeed, had to make do with buckets over us instead. Also this was a mysteriousday of no fish even though we were going at a very suitable trawling speed fortuna. Absence of the ubiquitous flying fish was probably the reason. Feeling ourway through the light evening breeze with our ghoster up and clocking a healthy6 knots helped by the very flat sea state. Crew have been trying to bust through the lethargy bydoing several things..........Matt doing proper Japanese coulior ski prep withsome very impressive squats on the foredeck to get ready for his ski trip toJapan in. read more...

Hecuba - Satellite phone fixed - we're back online!

After a pretty fierce storm about 6 days ago, our sat phone looked dead after suffering water damage. However, once the weather improved we set about attempting to fix the fried cables. Thanks to some expert soldering by Steve (and a hefty chunk of luck), we managed to get it up and running again - quite unbelievable. Over the past week we've been stuck in some low winds making slow progress and well behind schedule, but we're well past the half way mark at least. More updates to follow over next couple of days. Team Hecubahttp://www.teamhecuba.com . read more...

La Rochelle - The party begins in Saint Lucia on La Rochelle

We finally finished at 9 pm on Thursday night after counting down the last 85 miles from sunup on Thursday . Just over 14 days for us as we started 30 hours late but managed to overtake a few boats on the way. The crossing can be described in thirds. First third, lovely sailing conditions up to 20 knots, second third, boring as bat****, hard work motor sailing and the final third, reasonable pressure but a little frustrating . Overall the crossing was very tame, but the rock and roll was still there. The Atlantic didn't bite us so we should be grateful for that.Wonderful support from Paul and his team, again, again and again . We definitely have had more sleep than them, as they are basically working 24 /7. Superb effort .I cannot recommend the ARC + enough, having established. read more...

Jade - Days 12 & 13 Board/bored games...

The Monopoly Set has come out. Noah and Ferne are quite the little Alan Sugars. Ferne snapped up Mayfair and Park Lane within minutes, whilst Noah took to building houses and hotels on any other spare land. 5 hours later and I had to retire from the game owing them thousands in (thankfully) make-believe money. Alex has fared no better.The wind has finally perked up and today we've been flying along. We've seen only a bird and some flying fish all day long. Tonight the sky is full of stars and Venus is twinkling below a smiley-mouthed moon. Everyone on board is well and happy. Lots of love to allMichelle and all on Jade xxxx. read more...

Golondrina - Christmas is here ......

Today the crew of Golondrina stood and had a minutes silence, thinking of all those loved ones at home running around doing the Christmas shopping.  Our thoughts are with you - fighting for parking spaces, buying rolls of wrapping paper only to find the load left over from last year, trying to work out what does "Don't go mad on me" actually mean? buying yet another Christmas tree stand because you can't find the old one and they always fall over anyway, realising you still haven't updated the address book from last year for the Christmas Cards,  un-knotting the Christmas tree lights which don't work anyway,  working which parents to visit and which ones to offend AND our special thoughts go to retail sales persons who are listening to a loop of Christmas music - Remember. read more...

Dragonfly - 2.Fall

Die Nacht ist ruhig, der Motor tuckert vor sich hin und wir fahren Richtung WSW. Es ist fast unheimlich: Stockdunkel, keine Sterne, kein Mond, kein Horizont, man sieht die Hand vor Augen nicht. Auch das Glitzern des Planktons im Wasser fehlt fast gänzlich. Irgendwann in der Nacht taucht die Excalibur wieder hinter uns auf. Volker versucht mit zwei Ausweichmanövern einer Kollision aus dem Wege zu gehen, aber die Manöver werden vom Rudergänger der Excalibur nachgefahren. Erst mit einer drastischen Kursänderung kommt er weg. Die Excalibur passiert in Rufweite. Später funke ich mit Heike und wir wünschen uns eine gute Weiterfahrt nach St. Lucia. Wahrscheinlich war sie bei dem nächtlichen Manöver genausowenig an Deck wie ich. Gegen Morgen kommt etwas Wind auf. Wir setzen sofort den Genaker. read more...

Free Spirit - 1000 miles to go! (Free Spirit 62)

We just passed the 2/3rds mark in our passage (see celebratory photos, Tropical is the Canary Islands local brew!), its looking like we'll clock up 3,000 miles due to the various course changes we've needed to do from time to time (the straight line distance is around 2,800 miles), we have just 1,000 miles to go and its feeling like the finishing line is coming into sight :) We're also just under 2 weeks at sea, so very much in the swing of things. We're getting quite large (4 - 5m) swells cruising through at times but with 10s between each and broad, rounded tops, they're fun to ride over. Most of our fresh food has gone, although its lasted remarkably well, we're wondering whether the Las Palmas supermarkets radiate their produce or do something else to make it last! Standouts have. read more...

Skyelark of London - Where are the trade winds?

We sailed all the way down to St. Lucia latitude to get to the trade winds but they are not here. The wind we have is varying in strength and direction, last night for a while we sailed NW then gybed to sail SW, then straight downwind going west, but with barely with enough wind pressure to keep the wing-on-wing sails filled. Steering in these conditions on a moonless night required your full attention to avoid the sails from banging.Morning brought a passing rain squall then a scorcher of a day. The shade under the bimini was disputed by all. We are slowly making progress towards St. Lucia and the spirits are high. Yesterday afternoon we caught a nice medium sized tuna, it seems that the 4 to 5 in the afternoon is our lucky hour to catch fish. The tuna became this evening's dinner,. read more...

Shenanigan - Fabulous Sailing

You may have noticed from the Yellowbrick that we have changed our course going south in search of better wind and then north again following the wind! Today we have enjoyed some superb sailing reaching under the cruising chute with good speeds and good weather. Last night we had a huge squall which we had watched coming!It hit us just as we served our supper of rump steak, sautéed potatoes and steamed buttered courgettes. When the squall had stopped as abruptly as it started there was at least an inch of rain collected (not on purpose) in a beaker left on deck.Fortunately, supper was unspoilt despite the cook holding onto the plates for dear life!Today we saw flying fish for the first time - it took a moment or two to realise they. read more...

Merlyn III - Who has stolen the trade winds

This ARC will become known as the ARC without wind, specifically withoutthe Trade Winds. These fabled winds have conveyed generations of sailors fromEurope and Africa to the Caribbean. They are part of a mighty circulatoryweather system covering much of the Northern Atlantic, kept in position by theAzores high. According to my North Atlantic weather routing chart there is analmost vanishingly small chance  that they will not manifest themselves atthis time of year at the Latitude of the Cape Verde Islands. So what hashappened to the Trades? Who is the culprit? We need to investigate.   There are various suspects amongst whom I would include Melissa, thecitizens of the UK and Chris Tibbs. I should explain. Melissa was a seriousweather system in the North West Atlantic who. read more...

Milanto - 7 Dec Day 13

As predicted by Vale the wind shifted to the North East late on the 6th, we gybed onto 260 degrees heading directly to St Lucia and quickly picked up speed to 8 knots. Overnight we maintained this speed with wind of 20 knots and by morning had covered 110 miles since dinner.Today the wind has remained steady and we have been bowling along at  between 8.5 and 10.5 knots. At this time, 1630 Milanto time, we have 844 miles to go.The weather forecast is favorable for the rest of the trip with some periods of stronger winds on our stern and scattered rain but mostly warm and sunny. There isbig sea running but it is helping us on our way and Milanto is riding wind and waves beautifully.We have had a good day with rod and line and have landed two Dorado one of which was a whopper at. read more...

Koala - Dec 7th: Zombie watch

This morning I was greeted in the mirror in the aft heads by the sight of a cast member of Shaun of the Dead looking back at me. Tough night with very little sleep again. It is the problem of sailing down wind in the dark in unstable conditions with no instruments where the boat will not happily steer itself without slatting the main badly and waking everyone up. About every 5 minutes.Then this morning, I decided that the wind had shifted sufficiently to warrant a gybe, so I called the off watch on deck (Julia), who responded very positively considering, and appeared a couple of minutes later blinking myopically in a mole like fashion at the upcoming sun behind me. We gybed the boat, re-setting the pole etc. and she (the boat, not Julia) immediately settled down, and steered herself. read more...
