Morning Haze - Sailor Ted's adventures continue (day 13 and 14)

Hello family and friends,After our mid-ocean swim and a night sail under a full moon, I can only say that I am privileged to be onboard Morning Haze and share these precious moments with the family crew. Rebecca and Demi both came up on deck during the night to admire the stars and the moon with me. What a journey so far...This morning (day 13), the wind finally picks up a bit...Yes! the speed sensor still works...it shows speed above 6 kts!!! In the afternoon we discovered that the freezer/fridge had not been working since last night. Panic sets on board!...We don't want to loose all our fish and we still have more than 1000 miles to go! David gets his voltmeter and starts tracking the problem from the electric panel to the compressor...after 15 minutes, he discovers a loose resistor on. read more...

Nisida - Day 15 Arc 2014

Another calm night with little swell and breeze at around 8-10kts, this morning the breeze has picked up to 15kts and the swell is getting bigger so there may be a bit more wind on its way. Looking like a Wednesday arrival now with the slow conditions of the last few days. All on board very happy with the extra breeze as the milage clocks down ONLY another 290NM to go.. read more...

El Mundo - 08/12 - Well that was quite a day....and night...

We're all a bit tired this morning...not overlysurprising though. The wind has been good all day and we swiotched betweengoose-winged and reaching as the wind shifted, which seems to the pattern. Wedid 175 miles in the last 24 hours and we are now 500 miles from StLucia. The fishing took on a new intensity, as there is alot of weed about and the lines required clearing repeatedly. We caught a smalltuna, then a reasonable sized Dorado, which changed our catering plans and wedined on Dorado fillets cooked with ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce, lime andchives, accompanied by Lyonaise potatoes. However, the big catch of the day wasreeled in by Bob....and it was quite a fight. We brought in a beautiful Marlin,close enough to cut the line right by the lure to set him free again. In thefinal. read more...

Scarlet Oyster - 100miles to go! Scarlet last day at sea (hopefully!)

Hi All,A few milestones reached, one significant one for the superstitious was thatat 2343:13UT last night we were 13 seconds, 13 minutes, 13hrs, and 13 daysinto my 13th Atlantic crossing, I elected to play things very safe aroundthat time! We had a big cloud approach us minutes before, but fortunately nodire consequences!As of 1000 today we were 100miles to go, we just need a bit more wind and abit of north in the wind and we can still beat the mighty Leopard, going tobe close, but so long as we give it our all, it does not matter to me ifthey do prevail over us, we would be more than delighted with a fourthconsecutive class win, and as with all crossings, a safe rewarding one, is agreat outcome regardless of any race position.It seems that the S played out well for the intrepid French. read more...

Miss Liz II - Log -Day 14. Thunder and Lightening, Very, Very Frighteneing..

ME! As the song goes.Yesterday went well, reasonable winds and distance. As evening approached we saw the dark clouds on the horizon and lowered the Parasailor. Engine on. In the distance lightening appeared. Now, I'm not a fan of lightening at the best of times (after being hit in Houston a few years ago), so the hairs on my neck immediately stood on end. We placed as much of our electronics as we could in the oven (protection from a lightening strike - the Faraday cage principle for anyone who wants to look it up) and motored on as now the winds were building and coming from every quarter. Then the rain came......worst yet.Jon was on shift but I went to help him out.As the wind built we motored at 2.5 Knots into the wind....realising that the parasailor needed tying down better on. read more...

Tinia - Day 13

Big lunch today - slabs of Dorado he size of house bricks were consumed due to MFs early morning catch - the biggest fish yet about 20lbs - a quite afternoon followed as we sat about attempting to digest the beast. Great sailing wind today and hot weather. Quite a bit of reading going on as everyone has time to apply themselves to text that they maybe would not have time for at home in London. Oh yeah - we live in London where there are lots of people - we nearly saw another person yesterday as we got within waving distance of another yacht but there was no one on deck so we got them on the radio to check was all was OK - it was fine, he was down below playing marbles.. read more...

Aglaia - What a difference a day makes

What a difference a day makes, this time yesterday we were motoring through the last squalls of the night listening the remains of the torn yankee on the furler flapping in the 40 knot horizontal rain.Yesterday once everything was tidy and sorted the wind decided to fill in with a steady 12-14 knots through the day allowing us to set the genoa once again and average around 7.5 knots direct on course for St Lucia.As darkness started to fall and we all tucked in to a hearty freshly prepared curry (chef likes his curries hot which added to the sweating brows) we all braced for another night of squalls looking at the darkening clouds starting to mass around us.As the night passed by we had no more than a few drops of rain, consistant but light winds kept us moving along on course over a calm. read more...

Bluewater Mooney - 13. Tag auf See

Die Dreizehn hat kein Unglück gebracht, obwohl Seefahrer extrem abergläubisch sind, und zum Beispiel nie an einem Freitag ausfallen würden - es sei denn es ist gerade Wochenende und es geht nicht anders - aber wir haben am 13. Tag auf See die 200 nm Marke zum zweiten Mal überschritten!203 nm!Entgegen den Vorhersagen hatten wir aber auch Winde über 15 kn, in der Nacht fast durchgängig zwischen 18 kn und 25 kn. Unser letzter 24 Std Durchschnitt liegt damit bei 8.2 kn, und damit liegen wir in unserer Division gleich mit den ersten drei Schiffe, wohl gemerkt, nur die Durchschnittsgeschwindigkeit der letzten 24 Stunden. Doch auch die musste erarbeitet werden.Hier ein Screenshot von 12:07 Uhr UCT. Auf der Karte dazu ist die Cluck, eine Linjett 34 aus Schweden sowie die Euphoria, eine XC 42 aus. read more...

Juno - The Admirals perspective

Well get this! I have been invited from below decks to sit in the authors’ chair of the eloquently written Juno blog. This is surprising, given that my vocabulary stretches to that of an average ten year old, but perhaps the intention is to attract a younger readership.Another reason is that many men trying to convince their wives to join them on the high seas often say to Frewie ”My wife wants to know what Fatty thinks of…”. Well firstly, Fatty thinks that her name should be changed, before she grows into it. All those in favour shout “yay’ and submit alternatives on a postcard to SY Juno. More importantly, it seems that they want to know what I think about sailing across the Atlantic. Six months ago I was given the option to either sail across or Juno would have a boys crew as before. read more...

Vagaris - This ship is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S

This ship is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S(a title for all the Gwen Stefani fans....me the only one?)Anyway...what do you do with your bananas when even the green ones on the special bunches have ripened and are too soft to retain their banana like shape anymore, and there isn't really enough butter to make banana bread because you (and by you, I mean 'me'), seriously underestimated how much butter a crew of 4 would get through in 3 weeks (750g so far, if they get through the next 500g it'll be dry bread and water)...?Crush digestive biscuits in the bottom of a glass (plastic), I used the bottom of the citrus reamer - it did a good job and let's face it, it's not getting used much for squeezing limes for dark and stormies at the moment. Mash bananas (if too soft to slice), layer on top of. read more...

Take Off - A day full of happenings!

After yesterday’s challenges the guys got a quite undramatic night. Westarted the day off with family Wennberg’s seashower in the cockpit withscreaming kids. They didn’t really appreciate the heavy shower of salt waterfrom the bucket....However someone rewarded them for being so brave as we afterwards got tosee some DOLPHINS!! 5 quite small dolphins swam and jumped ahead of the boat.Really fun!Before lunch we reached 500 NM left to St Lucia which we celebrated withcava. After lunch Nils took a new chance at fishing and finally got our firstfish on the hook! It must have been a hungry one managing to be hooked at 8knots speed .The fish had no chance to battle with us in the sea, it totally surfed on top ofthe waves when we hauled it in at 8 knots. That was a very proud Nils fishing. read more...

Euphoria - Log Day 14 - Efter solsken kommer regn kommer solsken igen

Tjena bloggen,   Det var ett utvilat gäng ombord Euphoria som vaknade upp efter två dagarsförhållandevis avkopplande segling. Natten till idag bjöd på en del regn ochvindbyar som skvallrade lite om vad som komma skulle. Strax efter frukostbörjade mörka moln torna upp sig i söder och himmeln öppnade sig. Snabbare ännågon hann säga "styrbordsfördel" gick de något äldre besättningsmännen lägligtav sitt pass, försvann ner under däck och skickade upp de intet ont anandeskåningarna i sittbrunnen. Under de följande 3 timmarna följde det värsta vädreti mannaminne, regnet stod som spön i backen och kom från alla håll och kanter ibyar upp mot 25 m/s. Då Euphoria hanterade situationen brilljant med sinakraftigt revade segel njöt även skåningarna i brunnen av det hårdare vädret tilltonerna från. read more...

On the other, "Crikey, we've been going two weeks and we're still nowhere near!"For just such an occasion as this, before we left Lyn prepared a nice celebration lunch  consisting of unbelievably expensive Iberico ham with gourmet cheese and other little titbits from Las Palmas, with chocolate. read more...

Here is Herbert again on board of MILANTO on her cruise to St.Lucia.15 51 221N 53 34 206W, 441nM to go.The days have been calm and partly sunny, during the night we caught some beatings. We passed trough huge black cathedrals made of air and humidity, based on dark grey columns of rain, illuminated by mysterious bolts of light, without thunder. I don't know how many times I jumped into my oilskin and out again. we celebrated St.Nicholaus-day with the cookies Josef brought with him and we had numerous fishing-adventures. first we lost - already on the reeling - a huge MahiMahi. Josef fighted it till it was almost on board, just when we wanted to lift it up, the hook broke loose. what a pity. but next day Valerio got a 20kg Wahoo - a brilliant looking fish and today we caught first a small. read more...

Vagaris - Night time activities

We've just passed the 2000 mile mark, so are more than 2/3 distance. We've just passed the 2000 mile mark, so are more than 2/3 distance. We've had some amazing evenings recently. Not long after the sun has slipped away in front of us to the west has the full moon risen behind us. It has arched across the clear skies giving us bright moonlight all night and set just before sunrise in a ball of red to the west. Having moonlight makes night watches easier. Without it out here it is totally, totally black. There is zero light pollution apart from our own LED navigation lights and the faint glow of electronic displays and lighting below.Stars fill the entire sky, and with the aid of iPhone star gazing apps it is now easy to identify stars, planets and constellations. Even more phenomenal is. read more...

Aretha - Managing Tiredness, Shackleton and Baby Sunglass Chic

You know that thing where your mind plays tricks with you? Yes? Well that.Having covered over 2,000 miles and seeing that you only have 700 miles to go, you think you’re almost there. You can see it across the team - the energy rises dreaming of turquoise Caribbean seas, rum punches and catching up with family and friends. The trick of course is that 700 miles is still a shed load of sailing. Equivalent in fact to our first voyage from Southampton down to Spain. No small feat and there is no room for complacency. At the skippers daily briefing today, we focus on staying safe, having fun and remembering to work as a team. We need to stay alert and focused.It’s interesting to observe the signs of tiredness in both yourself and the team. Two weeks at sea now is a reasonable length of time.. read more...

American Spirit II - Day 334; A 1/2 Day Tour in Cape Town and Table Mountian; Saturday, December 6, 2014

Up at 5:00 AM. My right leg still hurts a lot. Joel gets up at 6:00 AM. Breakfast is at 6:55 AM and consists of eggs, potato, bread and fruit of apple or orange. Our half day tour starts at 8:00 AM. We're picked up in front of the Aquarium. Vlado, Jack and Marco from Civetta II; and Brian and Lucy from Folie a Deux, join Joel, Jeanine and me for the tour. We have our own 11 person van for the tour, instead of taking a crowded bus. At the same price as taking the crowded bus because we've loaded the van with so many people. Our first stop is Table Mountain. We arrive there at 8:40 AM. We go there first on the tour because the wind is low in the morning and the cable cars only run if the wind isn't to strong; and to beat the crowds. Each cable car holds 65 people. The cable car service to. read more...

A couple hours later we have to move it again. We're on a dock with Nexus and Folie a Deux. The American dock is what we call it since all 3 of us are US registered; and Pearl Harbor Day is two days away on December 7.At around 8:30 AM Zandra from yacht management company stops by and introduces herself and says that she is working with or on the behalf of the World Cruising Club. Breakfast at 8:35 AM consists of eggs, potato and bread; plus an apple or orange. The sky is blue, something we've seen very little of the last month.

Up at 5:00 AM. Relieved Jeanine at 6:00 AM. Seven ship around us, going east and west; and we're 15 miles from Cape Aghulas. The wind is 15/17 knots and we're moving at 6.7 knots thru the water and 7.3 knots over the land. Its 85% overcast with 6-8 foot waves.At 6:44 AM a pod of porpoise pass us heading east (we're heading west). Half of them turn off to swim off our bow and the other half kept going east. I turned the boat 15 degrees to the right and towards Cape Aghulas. We're heading for an area between 6 Mile Bank and 12 Mile Bank. We pass Cape Aghulas at 7:35 AM, leaving the Indian Ocean and entering the colder Atlantic Ocean. We're 21 degrees East and 6.7 miles offshore. Once we pass 6 Mile Bank we'll turn 20 degrees right.

Northern Child - Northern Child Blog Day 13

I have read more than a few times that doing the ARC wasa "life-changing" experience. I don't recall many instances, however, in whichthis claim was explained or substantiated over and beyond its rhetorical value.For me, still about 500 miles away from completing it, it's obviously prematureto say whether doing the ARC 2014 will be "life-changing" or not. What I can sayis how life on board is changing the experience. I am a paying customer on a charter boat and decided todo the ARC to satisfy a long-felt desire to do some long-haul sailing followinga life-long affair with dinghy sailing. I recently retired from a busy andmassively fulfilling career in the international news business. Taking the timeto disengage completely was not a luxury I could ever afford.

Reina - Log 15 FISH, FISH, FISH!

“Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiish!!!!” Captain Jarrod Cripps shout out loud. The whole Reina-crew is just starting to have breakfast together in the cockpit. Bread, bacon and scrambled eggs. We are chatting about the 80 miles we still have to go to St. Lucia and making plans for later the day where we will have dinner and which bar we are going to visit.Harry is the first at the rod. He brings up a small tuna. We decide to give it back to the sea. Only a quarter of an hour it is BINGO again. “Fish!” three men shout like in a chorus. This time we tackle up a Mahi-Mahi. What a luck on this last day to the finish… And it is not yet over. A third time the reel is rattling. “Fish!” again. Now Arie is the lucky one to get our catch in. When the gold and green is coming up the surface of the water we. read more...

Reina - Log 12 SINTER CHRISTMAS

On board Reina they invented a new kind of holiday. I call it Sinter Christmas because it is a mix of the Dutch Sinterklaas and the worldwide known Christmas. Of course everybody knows of Father Christmas, Christmas Eve, presents and the candles in the tree. Just a few weeks earlier in Holland arrives Sinterklaas (Saint Nicolas). He comes from Spain with his help Zwarte Piet (Black Pete). The good Saint always brings a lot of presents for the children in Holland. Zwarte Piet delivers the gifts trough the chimney on the eve of 5 December. A day before the birthday of the good holy man. The next day Sinterklaas and his servant go back to Spain by boat.Well, to have another reason for a party on the ocean and to pleasure the two Dutchmen aboard Reina the chef invented  Sinter. read more...

Louise - Blog 11 - 13th day at sea.

Iperformed fine last night and we made quite some nm. Now there is only 1274 nmtill we reach our destination. Thecommander has developed a sweet tooth! Whenever the cock lays out some sweetsJan finds them, and eats them. At home he never eats cake or sweets. Apparentlythe Atlantic has changed his habits! Thecock was sure there were plenty of sweets and biscuits, but now she has toration. As to the rest of the food she still has a lot in stock and can make avariety of dishes. Mostof the day my crew has been on deck talking, reading, taking sun heights, andnursing me. It has been a beautiful sailing day. However Carina complains thatit’s still too cold to wear bikini. I guess she will be able to do that shortlyas we are heading south slowly. The water temperature is 22 degrees C. I’mhoping. read more...
