Longbow of Argyll - Baltic Rally 5: the Gotland interlude

After a few hours sleep, we met up with a new crew member: Felix (Clare's husband), and waved a refreshed-looking Peter and Francoise off at the ferry. It was then time to go back to sleep for a few more hours before setting off to explore Visby.(For the benefit of non-sailing readers I would just like to point out that although it may seem as if there is rather a lot of sleep mentioned, it is one of life's luxuries while on passage, so we sleep all we can when we arrive!).Visby is an old medieval trading town, with the 3 km surrounding wall and ramparts still mostly intact. There are lots of old ruined churches, narrow cobbled streets and gardens to explore. Outside the walls the modern town of Visby has all the amenities one would expect from the capital of ~120km- long island, with. read more...

Longbow of Argyll - Baltic Rally 4: Bornholm to Gotland

We left Bornholm early in the morning after a helpful tow off a windward-facing dock from the lead boat, Working on a Dream. We headed straight into a 20kt breeze with reefed main and staysail, and made fast but bouncy progress northwards to the Swedish mainland coast.We anchored overnight in calm waters just off Karlskrone for 5 hours to give the weary and slightly battered-feeling crew some rest.At 4am we upped anchor and headed east towards Oland under motor power. We spent another rough day bashing our way east and then northin confused seas. The wind swung round and dropped throughout the day, but time constraints for ferry departures out of Visby meant that we motor sailed. We made good time, even hitting 10.2 knots surfing down some of the waves.We arrived in Visby harbour at. read more...

Free & BrEasy - The New Hebrides

We are back in the Pacific, halfway on the 1150 mile passage from Vanuatu to Mackay, Australia. We steamed past New Caledonia in the night without stopping but we are hoping to get reports from those members of the fleet who have visited those very Scottish sounding islands. The winds were light to start off with so we have been using the dreaded motor lots but at last we are sailing and enjoying listening to the rush of water past the hull interrupted by the slam and bang of waves into the underside of the bridge between the hulls (part of the character of catamarans). Vanuatu (renamed from the New Hebrides, to keep the Scottish theme going) will last long in our memory. Our arrival was marked by a 10h bar prop, followed, after very little sleep, by a 5am call to watch the World Cup. read more...

Nexus - Nearly half way there!

We're north of Brampton and Chesterfield reefs, and half way there with 633nm to go! Well the wind and waves didn't follow predictions and we've had a washboard ride with 15-20kts stubbornly clinging to the south west, but we continue to have beautiful sailing weather bashing through the waves. No whales sighted as yet, but there is still time! We're eating our way through our freezer as many meat and dairy products cannot be imported into Australia. NEXUS seems to be holding up well to the pounding, and we're keeping a northerly course to keep a good wind angle and reduce the wave impacts. We've been sailing in company with good friends on Celebrate and Boingo Alive, with many of the rest of the fleet nearby. It was a tighter rally course this time, which kept us closer together and. read more...

Zoonie - Santa Marina Azores to UK 45:21.92N 19:13.86W

As you can see we have now turned that illusive 45’ corner onto our finalleg home. We altered course at 25 minutes past midnight last night and have justhad a beer over lunch to celebrate.   Going back to last Monday, after the usual pre departure checks we leftSanta Maria with two other yachts who fairly quickly steered a course for theother islands leaving us to head for the east end of St Miguel north ofus.  The wind was perfect at first but as we neared her eastern volcaniccliffs it became necessary to start the engine to clear them. It would have beentoo frustrating to pass by this beautiful island if we had not both alreadyvisited there and were able to recall our many happy memories of a hot, orangeswimming pool, warmed by geysers from within the earth, milking machines. read more...

Tomanita II - Tallinn

Efter en gungig natt för ankare vid Gotska Sandön,lämnade vi för Tallinn på morgonen i solsken och 2-3 m/s. Bill Springer,journalisten från Boston som hade mönstrat på i Visby var en kunnig seglare, så genackern åkte upp. Vi fick en skön dag med 7-8 knop i 2-3 m/s (!), tog ner seglet på natten. Motorgång till morgonkaffet, sen mer genackersegling! Kom fram kl.15 efter 204 Nm till känd hamn, skönt!Tommy. read more...

Jumbuck - ARC Baltic Leg 8 - Arland Finland to Stockholm Sweden

We've had two days to cover this leg, and the Rally team provided a list of suggested anchorages we could make use of if we didn't fancy using one of the many guest marinas in the region.Brilliant sail from Mariehamn across the 30 miles of open Baltic from the Arland islands into Swedens eastern archipeligo. With a course heading WSS and a stiff SE breeze, Jumbuck creamed along before at times, 17 knots of breeze. The code 0 proved its worth yet again, but couldn't stop our new race mates, Capriai the Norwegians fast 45 footer. She came past us like we were standing still - and we weren't!Eventually wound our way into the Swedish archipeligo and early evening, dropped anchor in a paradise type bay on the small islet of Findhamn to break the journey. We were not alone. As well as half a. read more...

Nexus - Rounding the top of New Caledonia and all is well!

Rounding the top of New Caledonia after motoring in no wind, we decided to head north west as the wind came back on the nose but is expected to turn slowly to the south east again, and we'll turn with it. (if not, we hear Singapore is nice this time of year!) It feels great to be bounding along ar 9kts on a close haul again, without the drone of the motor in the background. The day is magic with puffy clouds, clear sunshine and 15kts of true wind. We're settling into our watch schedules with our sleep cycle again and enjoying the ride. We're busy planning our exploration of the Whitsunday Islands (or Cumberland Islands more properly) in our down time and looking forward to Australia. It should stretch our sailing skills again as the Whitsunday Islands have 30' tides and strong currents. read more...

Sweet Pearl - Vanuatu --> Mackay - 4.Tag - Langsam, aber gemütlich

Der Wind war meistens schwach, so dass wir nur wenig segeln konnten. Seit letzter Nacht ist er stärker und von vorn auf die Nase. Dies sollte sich aber dann bald ändern und wir können Gas geben;-). Das Meer ist ruhig und wir sind gut drauf:). Wache schieben, kochen, essen, schlafen, lesen - das sind unsere Hauptbeschäftigungen. Sonst gibts nicht viel zu berichten. Cheers, Tom. read more...

Flomaida II - Schwerer Abschied von der ARC Gruppe/Familie!

Bis jetzt kämpfen wir immernoch mit uns, ob wir nicht doch noch "schnell" nach Australien hinterher segeln sollten.Wir haben uns so wohl gefühlt die letzten 6 Monate und so viele neue Freunde bekommen. Das Sicherheitsgefühl und die gegenseitige Hilfe war eine große Beruhigung. Auch hat das Programm und die perfekte Organisation von Paul und Suzana dazu beigetragen. Nun fühlen wir uns ziemlich " vereinsamt" , denn die kleine Gruppe der Aussteiger (10 Schiffe) ist momentanin alle Winde zerstreut, bis wir uns Ende Oktober in Neu Kaledonien treffen, um das Abenteuer Neuseeland gemeinsam anzugehen. Vielleicht noch ein paar Tage, bis wir nach Vanuatu gehen, und Neues auf uns zukommt, dann haben wir hoffentlich den "Trennungsschmerz" überwunden.Dann kommt auch ein längerer Bericht über die. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 194: Light Winds & Some Boats Catching Big Fish; Friday, July 18, 2014

No more Pacific Ocean anymore. We're in the Coral Sea. Joel on watch from 12:00 AM to 3:00 AM. We dropped the low side tri-reacher pole at 1:45 AM and turned the engine on. Motor sailing. Jeanine covered the 3:00 AM - 6:00 AM watch. A little sea sick. But still stood her watch. I got up at 6:00 AM. Wind 6 knots; boat speed 6.3-6.8 knots. The sun rose above the low level clouds that always are on the horizon at 6:30 AM. Mostly blue sky today. Saw another sail boat port bow 30 degrees 2-3 miles t 6:56 AM. At 7:23 AM I saw a 2nd sail boat forward and starboard, with a spinnaker up; and a couple minutes later I saw a third, starboard 4-5 miles away.At 8;05 AM I talked with Russ on Nexus. They just dropped their spinnaker and were motoring up to Vivo, who still had theirs up to take some. read more...

Trillium - Who Is Leaving Whom?

As we said "until we meet again" to the World ARC boats continuing on to St. Lucia, we shared heartfelt hugs and held back tears. We have made several new and close friendships with others from around the world. It has been a wonderful experience sharing this adventure. It is also bittersweet as we go our separate ways. This would happen in St. Lucia in April 2015, but we are one of the nine boats staying in Fiji and heading to New Zealand in November with the trial run of "ARC New Zealand." So even though we are leaving World ARC, they were leaving us! Many wished they were following our plan, but had committed to family and crew to continue. To follow us on Yellow Brick, you must look at the New Zealand tracker area. I have posted many photos on Facebook and in our blog at. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 193; On the Way to Australia & 2 Boats Sight Whales Leaving Vanuatu; Thursday, July 17, 2014

Up at 7:00 AM. Coffee followed by breakfast: scrambled eggs, Vienna sausage, chilled pineapple pieces and French bread. Tasks to do this morning before departing: add more water to water tank; exchange Vanuatu dollars for Australian dollars; go to Post Office; make a quick visit to the grocery store to buy some paper plates and paper towels, plus 2 loaves of French bread; final land side showers; and pay final bill to Yachting World Marina. We departed the dock at 10:04 AM. The marina staff grabbed and off loaded our boarding plank; we let the 2 stern lines go; and the marina staff in a yellow motor boat released our line tied to the bow mooring ball. The 1,150 nautical mile leg from Vanuatu to MacKay, Australia got underway at 11:00 AM with a competitive start. Only one boat, Folie a. read more...

Nexus - On our way to Mackay Australia!

After a fond farewell to Vanuatu, and a picturesque start to Leg 7 of the WARC Rally, we are off to Mackay, Australia! With a 1150mile routing up and over the top of New Caledonia, across the Coral Sea and weaving through the Great Barrier Reef for the last 100miles following the Hydrographers Passage, we plan to arrive later this week. Winds have been light and variable, and we spent the first 24hours sailing slowly in light winds, but it was fun to be amongst the other boats sailing together. The true wind speed dropped off to 4-7kts from the aft quarter later this morning, so we're now motoring, which we really don't like. However, its a spectacularly nice day, consistent with the high pressure system that killed our wind, and we're enjoying it anyway. We spotted one whale. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 192; Last Day in Vanuatu, Broken Rappelling Rope is Delivered, Skipper's Briefing & Great Chicken Dinner on Boat; Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Today is our last full day in Port Vila, Efate, Vanuatu. Tomorrow at 11:00 AM local time we shove off for the 1,150 nautical mile journey to MacKay, Australia.Since a nautical mile is 15% longer than a statute mile, the distance we will be covering is 1,322.5 statute miles. Up early at 6:30 AM to call a vendor in St. Petersburg, Florida and another one in New Hampshire. We were successful with the former and unsuccessful with the latter.At 8:30 AM I went to the marina office to get in line to clear out of the country. Six or seven other boat captain's were already in line. An immigration and customs officer showed up in a government boat at 9:00 AM to start the processing. They each took a seat on a set of long tables set up outside but under a roof covering. The first official we met. read more...

Free & BrEasy - Pedro and the Volcano

We left Vuda Marina, Fiji, shouting fond farewells to the many friends we had made during the 3 week stop. Fiji also marks a schism in the fleet as about 15 of the 43 boats that left St Lucia, are leaving this year's WARC, here, to cruise New Zealand and rejoin the next spin of the World ARCround the globe in 2015. We missed the rendezvous at Musket Cove so can only wish them all Fair Winds and Safe Sailing.The passage from Fiji to Tanna, a small island in the Vanuatu archipelago, was a short 5 day, 450 mile hop. That statement alone shows how adapted we are to cruising life in the South Pacific. The winds on the first night were decidedly "sporty" with gusts of 40 mph and big changes in wind direction. Free & BrEasy took it all in her stride and we noted by the upright stance of the. read more...

Gestern mittag gegen 14 Uhr haben wir uns auf nach Australien gemacht. Einen Tag früher als die anderen Schiffe gehts an New Caledonia vorbei, durchs Bareer Reef nach Mackay in die Marina (1150 Seemeilen). Nach einigen Stunden Segeln, hat uns der Wind im Stich gelassen und wir müssen motoren. Wir sind aber guter Dinge, dass der Wind bald wiederkommt und wir uns mit den Kräften der Natur fortbewegen können. Lieben Gruss an alle zuhause. Tom. read more...

Jumbuck - Baltic Rally Leg 7 - Helsinki Finland to Arland, Finland

We really enjoyed our few day in Helsinki, wandering off to check out design museums along with some furniture shops. One can't help but be impressed with the volume of great styling that comes from this relatively lowly populated country. I thought it was all wonderful stuff.Not cheap, but them most things here appear built to last, and as the locals tell you in faultless English, quality has a cost.We then had a beautiful few days cruising our way westward through the thousands of islands, with the fleet dissipating as we all made differing choices on the anchorages chosen each night. Sailing or motoring after dark would not be recommended as very few of the channel marks are lit. It's hard enough keeping track of where you are and where your going during daylight hours, and you can't. read more...

Santa Maria - Goodbuy Sweden, thank you Stefan, you are our hero. Hjelte-Stefan

16/7 at 16:15 the job was done. Thanks to Stefan, the whole crew is still on board. The engine is back where it belongs. Stefan changed four bolts, from which two were broken off. You can see one in the bottom of the picture. These screws goes through a rubber"cushion". For any team needing a qualified handyman for your engine during the return via Kalmar,Stefan is your man.We are now clearing the ship, the crew is preparing for some days on board. We hope to leave round 21:00. We will now feel how it is to participate on a ARC Atlantic cruise. The weather forecast predicts an enjoyable journey.

We are now sailing north along the east coast of Gotland heading for the island of Gotska Sandon.The fleet plans to anchor there for a few hours and then set off towards Tallinn at midnight.We had a great day in the wonderful old town of Visby and it's not hard to see why it's a UNESCO world heritage site - we are already planning a return trip!In the evening the Rally Control team arranged another BYO dock side BBQ and a very good time was had by all.A rocky night rafted up with the shore lines squeaking all night made it easy waking up early for our 0600 start this morning, but now we both feel much better after a few hours of sparkly water down wind sailing.Paul & Elaine. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 191; Boat Boarding Becomes More Challenging & Joel Heyne Wins World ARC Humanitarian Award; Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Days until home 291.Up at 7:30 AM. Jeanine then tried out the marina shower facilities. When in a marina its usually better to use shore water to shower than boat water, especially since we don't usually make water in an anchorage due to the water being more dirty than our water maker filters like. At 8:55 AM I met Warren from The Edge, the company that I'd had my interesting rappelling experience with. He was at the marina to pick up another group of sailors for the Mele Cascades abseiling adventure. He indicated that I would have a CD from our Friday adventure (we didn't pick it up Friday due to us being in a hurry to get Angela and Chet to the airport) before the day was out. When I asked about getting the rope that broke on me, I was advised that the proprietor would be getting it to. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 190 ; Angie Makes it Home, Germany Wins World Soccer Cup & Jeanine Miami Joins Crew; Monday, July 14, 2014

Up at 6:23 AM. When I got up I saw that Angela had sent me a text stating that she traveled 44 hours on Saturday to get home to Charlotte, North Carolina. You may think that that's not possible, but because she gained a day crossing back across the International Date Line, it is possible. From 6:40 AM to 8:30 AM I went to a room off the marina where one of the tenants had set up a TV set for us to watch the World Cup Soccer final between Germany and Argentina. In a closely contested game Germany won in the extra time (over time) 1-0. The German crew members of the rally were thrilled; and the members of NDS Darwin from Argentina were not. For the rest of the morning we kept hearing car horns honking as they drove on the street by the marina flying German flags out of their car windows.. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 189; Cathedrale du Sacre-Coeur & Dinner with Meryln of Poole; Sunday, July 13, 2014

Up at 7:00 AM to go to the Sunday Catholic Church services at the Cathedrale du Sacre-Coeur. My driver, Wesley, was supposed to pick me up at 7:45 AM. However, by 7:50 AM he wasn't here so I took another taxi. Wesley called me 10 minutes later,but...if you snooze you lose. I got to the cathedral at 7:55 AM, and only then saw on the sign in front of the church that the services started at 8:30 AM. No problem. I'd brought my Kindle. It was a large church. I'm not sure of what classifies a church as a cathedral. The cathedral was organized into 4 seating sections; the benches were wooden and bolted to a colored concrete floor. There were no kneel boards. During the services if you were to kneel, it was onto the concrete floor. The church was 75% full by the time the services started; with. read more...

Santa Maria - alive and kickin?

After having given up all hopes, we finally found a Swedish mechanic which might be able to mend the broken bolts fixing the engine in the machine room, later this evening we'll know more. The crew has been spinning around different exit scenarios, as some of us would leave in Tallin anyway. Personally I'm on four more legs, and would very much like to join the fleet again, at a moment I even thought of asking for a ride with Jubilare, which we met here in Byxelkrok.  This remained a thought, as they left for Visby at 5:30amThen I found it very reassuring to hear from WCC in the UK, they were actively involved in looking for possible alternatives for us to continue our adventure.At the moment, we keep our fingers crossed, this evening we have another piece of information, allowing. read more...

Tomanita II - Visby

Vi fick en tuff segling från Rönne med start 07.00 Med 10-12 m/s motvind över Hanöbukten så vi blåstes upp mot Hanö. Efter fortsatt hård kryss med två rev i storen och revad fock kom vi ifatt en medtävlare vid Utklippan,men han gjorde inte mer än 5 knop och vi över 8 så det gick fort förbi. Mycket regn på kväll och natt. Hörde på radion att några skulle gå in till Karlskrona. I morgondis,regn och hård kryss givk vi in under Ölandsbron och kom sen in till Visby kl. 22; ingen där! Någon timme senare dök Dynamic express 50upp och undrade hur vi kunde vara här. Ytterligare några tim senare kom Hanse 50 och Swede Yacht 45 mfl stora båtar in. Kul att en så liten båt som vår jolle kom först(kul för oss). Pga kryss blev det 300Nm på 39 tim. Sov gott...Nu har vi fått vår Amerikan ombord så det. read more...

Firefly - Experiences on Beqa

Firefly was anchored in Vaga Bay on Beqa for just 2 days but during this time we had some interesting experiences. In the previous posting we described the Sevusevu ceremony at Neiseuseu Village and Rosy's day of teaching at the adjacent Nacema Village.While Rosy was teaching Paul was invited by Seroe, the villager who had clearly been appointed too look after us, to walk to Nacema Village. At low tide it was possible to walk along the beautiful beach out around the headland, passing a couple of small resorts. Throughout Fiji we have seen a lot of idyllic holiday locations but there often seems to be very low occupancy - possibly as there are so many. These were no different with just one Aussie couple staying at the first and no guests visible at all at the second. A '5 star' resort on. read more...
