Mahe' 3 - II giorno

Vento leggero di poppa ed onda hanno caratterizzato questa giornata. Andiamo piano, le vele sbattono e non c'è niente che io possa fare. L'idea che le barche più piccole ci stiano lasciando dietro mi fa impazzire. Non possiamo seguire la rotta diretta in quanto sarebbe in poppa piena e quando ci provo rischiamo di spaccare tutto, ci stiamo dunque mantenendo più a Sud, anche in previsione della tempesta in arrivo da Nord che dovrebbe raggiungerci entro Sabato. Prima che facesse buio abbiamo cambiato il genoa grande con lo yenkie, il vento sta già aumentando; siamo pronti alla battaglia. Con questa vela tangonata la barca cammina meglio. Anche oggi abbiamo mangiato pesce, Dorados con ananas e riso tailandese. Stiamo tutti bene!. read more...

Luna Quest - Thursday, 21.5.15

Noon Position: 15.35S 163.13WDaily run: 122 milesBecause of a lack of wind, we ran the engine all night, making about 4 knots in a confused sea, but by 6.30am this morning a forecast southeasterly had put in an appearance, at first feebly and then fairly suddenly increasing to 18 knots. Amazingly, the increase coincided with the passing of the front overhead where clear skies followed. What a delightful change from the gloomy, dull and wet days we had earlier week! Luna Quest is loving the strong breeze on the quarter under full genoa and a partly reefed mainsail, exceeding 8 knots of speed from time to time. In the last 6 hours we have run as many miles under sail as we did all night on the engine in twelve hours!The hatches and windows are open at last and the sultry stuffiness from. read more...

Dala - Leg 2 - Bermuda to Horta - 2nd sailing day

Hi, all,We are now in our 2nd sailing day toward Horta and so far so good:We had most of the time good wind, even too good since it was downwind and on a catamaran we prefer a broad reach. So we took the option to go North for about 24 h, not a bad option considering we better stay North of the direct route. About four hours ago we gybed and are currently enjoying a smooth and fast sailing, starboard broad reach and making good progress.So, a few minutes ago, I had one of those tiny but gigantic pleasures who make sailing great: I drank a delicious coffee while eating a not less delicious dark chocolate, seating in the forward cockpit (what a great idea, this cockpit), and watching the sea, feeling the boat gliding on the swell, WOW!! Life is good!More good news:- Joelle my lovely Lady. read more...

Aislig Bheag - Day 1- 2nd leg, off to a good start (phew)

HiFolks,   Firstly weapologise for not updating you on the first leg of our sail from Tortola toBermuda.  To say it was quite eventful is putting it quite mildly.  Onthe third night, just as all the crew were finding their sea legs, John ourSkipper, became very dizzy.  He spent a torrid night below decks vomitingand was so dizzy that he couldn’t sit up or hold down water or food. What waswonderful though was the way the rest of the crew rallied round, taking on thewatches and finding their sea legs during the ordeal.   Still, thefollowing morning things were not looking good and John was still unable to keepdown fluids.  The decision had been taken after the first 12 hours tocontact the Arc rally support who in turn put us in touch with. read more...

Widago - Bermuda-Azores Leg: Day 2

So far, all is well aboard WIDAGO on her maiden Atlantic Crossing. We have been enjoying beautiful downwind sunny sailing with our big blue parasailor since we left St. George's. The cinnamon buns from Bermuda were even better this morning. This might become a problem for me as we still have half a dozen or so left, and my foul weather bibs were a bit snug to begin with. I guess there are worse problems to have. Boys are well. They have begun stepping up to their duties with vigor and vim. Dishes were done last night, while another stood watch with Ahab. Now they are rotating in for solo daytime watches so the adults can catch up on beauty sleep.The fleet heading over seems much more spread out than on our way up from Tortola. This is unfortunate because there is less to see on the radar. read more...

Defyr - Now we have two gennakers

What a beutiful weather we had for the ARC Europe! We had decided to fuel Defyr before the start. So we agreed that I would go to customs to clear out (boats joining the rally in Bermuda had to do the clearance in customs building) and the others would move the boat to Rubis. So there I was, after customs, internet and buying last minute stuff from the market. But Defyr wasn't there at the gas station. I sat there for a while and tried to call everyone. Finally I did reach Jaakko. Our anchor was tangled with some kind of rope, which in turn was tangled with a carwreck! The diver had just arrived and soon they would be ready to go. Finally we had fuelled and on our way to the start area, fifteen minutes before the start. It wasn't supposed to be this tight of a schedule! We quickly threw. read more...

Jambo - Azores here we come

The start was quite picture as all the yachts set sail in St George's harbour and then made their way through the town cut into the open seaThe rigmeister Lord Charles of moncreif quickly had Jambo flying along in moderate winds and we had a reasonable night sail. The first few days always take a bit of time to settle down to the routine of the watch system ,Cooking and general chores at an angle We are trying to head slightly ENE in anticipation of a front passing through on Saturday night which may bring rain and a wind shift.This leg is about 1800 miles - our day one distance covered will be about 125 miles !Philip. read more...

Agua Dulce - Spinnaker Fun, then Wing & Wing

The start was exciting with over 40 sailboats in all shapes and sizes milling around in St. Georges Harbour waiting for the yellow shirts to sound the horn to signal the start and send us off through Town Cut. As we sailed through the cut, we saw several Bermuda longtails wheeling overhead - a good omen for sure! With light winds behind the fleet, many spinnakers were quickly hoisted, and we did the same. Soon, however we had an interesting moment. The belly of the sail got twisted around the sock lines - not a pretty situation. So, we pulled the whole thing down on the deck - seemed like MILES of canvas -and set to work untwisting and unraveling. About an hour and a half later, it was up and flying. At that point, however, the wind had shifted and we decided it would be better to run. read more...

Exocet Strike - On our way to Niue

It often seems that whenever one put in or takesout a reef the wind does the opposite of what is expected. The forecast was formore wind and moving further South ie forward which both means we need less sailarea. So we put two reefs in at 1830 local time since we were doing 9 to 10 knots but the boat wasn't very balanced. So what happens, the wind staysthe same direction and over the next few hours drops, although as I write thisthe wind has cinversely jumped to 21 to 22 knots so we are now doing 8.6 knotsof boat speed and 8.2 knots SOG (speed over the ground). Whats the differenceand why, I hear the non sailors and pilots amongst you. Well the boat speed isthe speed through the water, whereas the SOG is the same but with the currentcomponent added or subtracted. So you can see we. read more...

Gozwoz - Day 1 from Bermuda

The day started well in that we managed to get away from the quay where we had spent a night without further damage to the Bosun. As we prepared for the start of the leg, however, we noticed a tear in the genoa which needed immediate repair. In consequence after crossing the start line we made straight for the town quay. Thanks to prompt work by Ocean Sails we were away again within two hours. Apart from a brief try with the cruising chute which resulted in the sort of "SNAFU" associated with that sail, we have been running down wind with a poled out genoa and are hopefully gaining on the slower boats. The Navigator has deservedly been the butt of Our Great Leader's scorn over his uncertainty as to the accuracy of the great circle track provided by the software from the App Store which. read more...

GarliX - ? nach Niue?Segeln zum Abgewöhnen

Tour: Suwarrow /Cookinseln nach Niue, Distanz ca. 540sm(20.5.2015) Unser Start in Suwarrow war echt, echt mies. Als es hiess „Anker auf“…, war da nicht viel - höchstens 5m, der Rest war und blieb erstmal unten. Wir ankerten bei 20m Tiefe und hatten rd. 60m Ankerkette draußen. Seglerische Solidarität rief die verbliebenen Segler in der Bay auf den Plan… „können wir helfen“. Aber bei 20m Tiefe ist mit Schnorchel, oder auch mit unserem Freedriver (geht 10m runter) nichts zu machen. Dann kam der Skipper von der schwedischen Yacht ANASTASIA mit Tauchequipment und entwirrte die Kette, die sich mehrfach um Korallenblöcke gewickelt hatte. HERZLICHEN DANK!! Mehrere Stunden später als geplant sind wir dann doch noch gestartet; wir hatten nicht mehr damit gerechnet. Schnell entwickelte sich das. read more...

Mahe' 3 - Partenza

Oggi alle 11.10 ora locale, dentro il porto di S.George (Bermuda), la Barca Giuria ha finalmente dato il segnale di partenza.Un corridoio stretto segnalato da boe rosse e verdi è il percorso obbligato per uscire dal fiordo. Tante barche in così poco spazio fanno impressione; qualche momento di tensione fino a quando ci siamo trovati a largo del reef ed è iniziata la vera regata.Con Poco vento in poppa ed onda oceanica, le 24 tonnellate di Mahè si fanno sentire ! Siamo lenti. Si dovrebbe alzare lo Spinnaker, ma . il mio equipaggio non mi sa aiutare, e quindi mi rassegno ! A poco a poco le barche più leggere ci superano ed io non sono certo contento.Mentre cerco di escogitare qualche cosa per fare andare Mahè un po' più veloce, la canna da pesca parte velocissima; un bellissimo Dorados di. read more...

Luna Quest - Wednesday, 20th May, 2015

Noon Position: 15.38S 161.25WDaily run: 36 milesYesterday must be among the most squally days on record. There were few brief periods when the rain did not come pelting down. We tried to set the genoa on a pole, just by itself and no other sail. It was a wet business, only to find that the sail might do better on the other side of the mast. The little wind was fickle and would not give us any direction. Wet through, we decided to have some supper and sort something out later. After all, both poles were out and all we would have to do was pull a sheet to bring the sail out, which ever side appeared better, but the wind had changed again by then and using the poles was no longer an option. In the dark with the deck light on we struggled to take the poles in so that we might use our genoa. read more...

Juno - Pacific Storm

The next leg of our journey takes us to Suwarrow in the Northern Cook islands, made famous by Tom Neale, a New Zealander who wrote about his experiences living there alone for many years. Now it is uninhabited, an atoll famed for its wildlife, visited only by private yachts and manned for three months in the year by park rangers who will stamp your passport for a small fee. The island is seven hundred miles to the northwest so I email Chris Tibbs, our friend and weather router, for a forecast. There is a cold front developing across our track and we are likely to pass through it in three days time. It looks benign at this stage but as we are to discover, Pacific weather systems are highly dynamic and can quickly develop from gentle depressions into aggressive fronts fuelled by the warm. read more...

Widago - Bermuda-Azores Start

We left the Parrish of St. George's Bermuda this morning with beautiful weather, five souls on board, and way too many cinnamon buns. For the non-rally readers: each leg of our journey cruising with the ARC is done in spirit of friendly competition. This means winners get booze & bragging rights. The vessels are divided into different classes according to size & number of hulls. The start of each leg is staggered by class so as not to increase the ensuing mayhem. Today, Multi-hulls were set to go off at 11:00, followed by the monohull classes in five minute increments. The St. George's Harbor was chalk full of bustling boats, each shaking out their sails and jockeying for the best position at the start. With just a few shy of 40 vessels, plus the regular traffic, it was the. read more...

Dala - This is how a single nut cans screw it all!!

Hi, all (especially the ones of you interested in technical sailing matters),I wrote a few minutes ago a brief report about our stay in Bermuda and how much we enjoyed it.In that message I alluded to a serious incident we had with our main sail. For those of you interested in those matters, here's what happened:1- During the first leg of the crossing, from the British Virgin Islands to Bermuda, the mainsail headboard connector (for my French speaking sailing fiends: c'est la piece metallique triangulaire a laquelle sont attaches trois coulisseaux, qui maintient le point de drisse a la tete du mat) at the very top of the main sail lost its uppermost bolt, and that went of course totally unnoticed.2- A few hours (or days?) later, the headboard connector, not being held any longer, slipped. read more...

Dala - Farewell Bermuda!

Hi, all,That's it! We left about two hours ago Bermuda and are now sailing toward Horta, Faial Island in the Azores.I could have stayed in Bermuda at least three weeks! What a lovely place: Super lovely people, kind weather, History, exceptional pink sand beaches, exceptional landscapes, excellent seafood (my favorite), the world record of golf courses per capita and much much more...We spent there about 5 days and a half. At least 2 days were taken by taking care of our rigging (we've got a serious incident with our main sail, I'll write another message to the blog for that since it's rather technical and I don't want to bore my non-sailing friends).So we could enjoy touring only about 3 days or less but it was awesome! We toured the historic St Georges Harbour (a UNESCO heritage site),. read more...

Free Spirit - Log 10: 20 May 2015

This morning, at 10.15hrs we will leave our slip onOrdnance Island Bermuda to begin the next leg of our voyage. We will set acourse for Horta on the island of Faial in the Azores, 1800 NM away onthe other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Free Spirit is in good order, with a newpatch on the Genoa sail for protection against frictional wear against theupper spreader and a new genoa furling line. In light of the problem encounteredon the first leg with flooding of the anchor locker, Ian has devised a cunningsystem, involving the application of Marigold Gloves, forpreventing the ingress of water through the anchor chain ducts. And we havereprovisioned with sufficient fresh food to last several weeks should thisbe necessary.  The island of Bermuda is. read more...

Euphoria - Start Bermuda

Då var det dags för Euphorias första blogginlägg för ARC Europe 2015. Efter en försenad start från Portsmouth så nådde Euphoria Bermuda söndagen den 17.05.2015. Dagarna i hamn här på Bermuda har spenderats med förbereda det sista för seglingen över Atlanten. Det ska sägas att merparten av förberedelserna gjordes i Portsmouth. Här på Bermuda sker också en liten förändring i besättning, vi tackar av Johan och välkomnar Adam. Det är sex solbrända som poserar på Euphorias fördäck. Om några timmar går starten och då hoppas vi att ni följer oss resten av resan!  DSC_0795 use3. read more...

Exocet Strike - Fast Sailing

What a difference a day makes.The rain went lastnight except for occasional light squalls today, and we had 18 to 25 knots ofwind from a great sailing angle, and so we have been averaging over 8 knotstowards our destination all day. Compared to a car journey this doesn't soundfast but on the water its pretty good. One thing that constantly amazes me is that we arein a reasonably busy area for shipping and other yachts, but since the eveningafter we left Bora  Bora we haven't seen visually or on our AIS anothervessel, thats in over 800 miles of sailing!  As we approach Niue we may see the other threeboats ahead of us, A Plus 2, Juno and Makena, who left Bora Bora a few hoursahead of us and went through the middle of the low pressure system, we seem tohave caught up a bit, since. read more...

Comme tous marins, il nous est acquit comme une seconde nature de se mêler de la bonne entente de Neptune et d'Eole sous peine de se retrouver au milieu d'une scène de ménage qui transforme notre terrain de jeux favori en champ de bataille.Partis de la fameuse Bora Bora depuis quelques jours pour le plus discret Suwarrow, lagon bleu perdu dans les Cook 750 miles au nord-ouest,l'ambiance était plutôt au moteur dans la pétole pour les deux premiers jours, accompagnés de Juno le bel Oyster 575 et Makena le majestueux Lagoon 620, tous trois prolixes par VHF interposée, tuant le temps en de savants calculs sur nos consommations en précieux diesel, dans des contrées où les pompes à essence sont pour nous des cités urbaines parfois fort distantes.Le vent s'étant fatigué d'être absent, chaise. read more...

Luna Quest - Tuesday, 19th May

Noon Position: 15.36S 160.51WDaily run: 143 milesSurprisingly, we had a fresh breeze from the Southeast last night, pushing us along at nearly 7 knots, but today the weather is as gloomy as can be with low hanging grey, black clouds and very light winds, too light to sail in as the sea is very confused as a result of the swell from the east, waves from the North and Southeast and squalls whipping up the sea from any direction. Julia reminded me that we are here for our pleasure... I dreamed night before last of a lovely country walk in beautiful England in May. I wonder sometimes at our sanity.We have been on the engine since 10.15am today on a course of about 255 degrees towards Tonga, some 850 miles away. Although revving at 1600, our engine progress is just about 4 knots. Sailing. read more...

Makena - Niue

We are less than 2 days from Niue now. As we were powering along at 10kts this lunchtime both fishing lines buzzed so loudly that they scared Kai. Kai and I ran to the flybridge to get us upwind, furl the genoa and then slow the boat down as much as possible with some help from the starboard engine (Watt & Sea is out behind the portside one). Victor and Luc quickly each brought in a rather large tuna. Victor had just finished making us sushi for lunch with the tuna we caught two days ago! At least it is very tasty and we have plenty of sushi making supplies, including fresh ginger. We went through quite a prolonged storm since the last blog. We stayed in a pack with Juno and A Plus 2 and checked in on each other hourly. Luc saw 56 true wind on the monitors on two occasions (a. read more...

Firefly - Uoleva and Uonukuhihifo Islands, Haapai Group, Tonga

Firefly has spent to last 5 nights at 2 beautiful anchorages just to the west of Uoleva and Uonukuhihifo islands, sharing the tropical paradise with about half of the ICA fleet, no other yachts have been seen as yet probably because its still quite early in the season and this area is also off the main 'coconut milk route' through the South Pacific.The trade winds have been blowing steadily from the south east and while we have been well tucked in behind sandy islands and reefs, there has been quite a swell coming in at times and Firefly has been rocking and rolling quite a bit. If we were experiencing this while cruising in the UK we would probably find it quite uncomfortable but after a while one seems to get used to it.On arrival at the Haapai Group we had anchored off Lifuka Island. read more...

Widago - Last night in Bermuda

WIDAGO finally found good internet…..and it’s a cab ride away from St. George. Final preparations are being made, but almost everything is ready for the morning departure. Most importantly, the order was submitted to the bakery for 792 croissants, cinnamon buns, and scones. We will carb-load our way across the Atlantic. This passage will be our longest to date on WIDAGO, and just the five of us. I feel like I should be more anxious, but I’m not….perhaps Guyon found my stash of Xanax and has been secretly crushing it into my toothbrush. If so, well done Guyon. The boys are looking forward to taking more responsibility during this leg. Standing solo day watches, galley clean-up duty, and of course, cleaning their own toilets. Only hard part of the day was watching our friends leave to. read more...

Agua Dulce - Final Preparations - Goodbye Bermuda and Dark & Stormies!

We are looking forward to an getting underway on the next leg of the trip to the Azores which departs tomorrow. I’ve been cooking up some more meals for the freezer while Charles has been rigging his fishing gear. Maybe we’ll be eating fresh fish en route! We did some troubleshooting on what we thought was a dead inverter, but turned out it was only a blown fuse - hallelujah! So, all systems are go and we are stocked to the gills with crackers, chips, cup noodles, apples (an apple a day!), and anything we can fit without lowering the waterline any more! We’ve loved being rafted to S/V Tara - our twin Hylas 54! - at the Dinghy Club this week. Lyle, Andy, Mia and all the “yellow shirts” with the World Cruising Club have been great - especially their pirate costumes. We’ve got to leave some. read more...

Exocet Strike - Update on trip to Niue

Well that was a fun day, not. We went reallyfar north as the tracker will show, if you check out any of the boat that wereat sea only those at anchor in Suwarrow were as far north as us. Due to this themax winds we saw were 28 knots in a squall, easily managed, but for thosefurther south they saw 40 and 50 knots, one boat reported 52 or 56 knots twicein one squall, not fun and potentially boat breaking stuff. The strange thing is that neither Fiji met officeor our own foecaster WRI gave advance notice. WRI did send an update today, butthis was after the event and for those who didn't have weather info preventedthem from getting very far north. Even those with good weather info decided notto go so far north, and they got the 50kn winds. Anyway it seems we are all through the worst of. read more...

Luna Quest - Monday, 18th May, 2015

Noon Position: 15.20S 158.46WDaily run: 72 milesThe fleet operate a radio net at 9am and at 6pm via the SSB radio (single side band). Last night at the 6pm net, wind speeds of up to 50 knots had been experienced by one boat and quite a few had 30 knots or more. It would not be so bad if the winds came from somewhere behind the boat, but the winds backed from the Northeast through north to the Southwest and therefore heading us on our way west. We had reefed the sails down as far as possible for the night just in case we were going to be hit. At 2am this morning we were hit with wind speeds of 30 knots, accompanied by torrential rain. The near gale force winds stayed with us all night whipping up a most uncomfortable sea. It was hot in the cabin as the windows had been closed all day to. read more...
