Amara - AMARA is in the house!

AMARA is ready for the journey west!  Brenda and I are positioned to have crew come on board here in Marigot Bay St. Lucia and couldn’t be more excited to welcome Karen to AMARA on Dec 28th.  With Christmas just around the corner, our hearts and minds are turning to family and friends that we miss during this Christmas season. Blessing to you all! We miss you! JNL_2115.. read more...

Lothlorien - Damit haben wir nicht gerechnet!

Seit fast sechs Tagen bin ich nun schon wieder im kalten Deutschland und seit vier Tagen habe ich schon wieder im Büro am Schreibtisch gesessen. Die Atlantiküberquerung - die drei Wochen auf hoher See, als Wind und Wellen die größten Sorgen und zugleich das größte Glück waren - fühlt sich bereits ein wenig an wie ein ferner Traum. Aber es gibt noch einige große Neuigkeiten zum Thema ARC und daher schreibe ich diesen letzten Blogeintrag - in der Hoffnung, dass noch ein paar treue alte oder neugierige neue Leser auf ihn stoßen. ;-) Denn am 16. Dezember fand in der Rodney Bay in St. Lucia die große Price Giving Ceremony statt. Die Crew der Lothlorien war leider nur zur Hälfte vertreten. Arjan und ich sind bereits am 15. zurück nach Europa geflogen, sodass Kerstin und Ralf ohne uns. read more...

Lexington - Captain Bob: Tau Lodge

We all rested well last night and were ready for our 05:00 wake up call for viewing. Sam and Kelly decided to look out at the water hole behind the cottage. Sam pointed out two male lions about 100-150 feet away. That was a good start to the rest of a good morning. As usual I will tell the story with the photos. image1 image2 image3 image4 image5. read more...

Lexington - Captain Bob: Tau Game Lodge

We had an interesting train ride to Johannesburg and then a long van ride to the game lodge. It has been a long travel but relatively nice. The grandkids have done real well tolerating all the travel. They had a 30 hour air travel to Capetown, quick tour of the city, then 30 hour train ride and then a 4 1/2 hour van ride. The lodge is very nice. We had elephants off our back porch when we got in our cottages. image1 image2 image3 image4 image5 image6. read more...

Lexington - Captain Bob: Wineflys tour

We signed up for a tour by a company called Wineflys. They had a two day tour called The Forgotten Trail. It was to a small village called Matjiesfpntein. It was along the railroad from Capetown to Johannesburg. An entrepreneur named James Logan set up a station along the railway.He was smart enough to establish a source of water which was valuable. The rail roads ran on steam engines. It took lots of water to make the trip. He also provided food and lodging for passages. It was a boom time of diamonds and gold. Lucas was also good at buying and selling diamonds and gold. He was probably a manic. He invited the Queen of England to visit his place in no where. He also invited the national cricket team from England and promptly beat them.The village has a population of about 300 now and is. read more...

Avel Biz - ARC 2017 prizegiving

Dimanche 17 décembre 2017 12h00 UTC 49°01 N 02°25 E   Bonjour La soirée de remise des prix de l'ARC 2017 a eu lieu hier soir à Rodney Bay. Nous n'étions pas sur place mais une équipière de NORXL nous a représenté. Il y a eu beaucoup de prix distribués. AVEL BIZ a reçu deux prix. Celui du plus petit voilier ayant traversé, c'était prévu car nous étions le plus petit au départ. Celui de 3ème de la classe F (sur 14). Ce n'était pas joué d'avance. Nous avons battu le 4ème d'un peu plus de 2 heures. Par ailleurs, nous finissons 25ème toutes classe Cruising (sur 127). Résultat satisfaisant dont l'équipage est plutôt fier. Bon vent à tous. Sabine, Jean-Noël et Pierre-Yves  arc17-3975 arc17-3979 arc17-3981. read more...
