Last Days we got daily two or three squalls with winds up to 30 Kn and rain, but also with wonderful rainbows as today at 09:30 a.m..Good luck for all others,Moana-Team. read more...

Moana - Moana and the dolphins
Enjoying the beginning of the next beautiful sundown a school of roughly 20 dolphins crossed our westerly course and followed us for more than 15 minutes. We were really delighted and hardly impressed lying on the bow beam of our catamaran. Besides this highlight our mute is accordingly to our speed, but on high level - no worries. We are still waiting for a constant passat with more pressure as in the last 48h and are switching between main / jib and parasail accordingly to the wind direction. ---- This e-mail was delivered via satellite phone.

Moana - Slow boat to St. Lucia
After a slow first week making our way down to look for the trades we have finally changed course to head directly for St. Lucia. The wind is not yet as strong as we wish for, so progress seems not too favourable compared to the fleet further north, but hey - moral is fine and we are enjoying the rhythm of the sea. We had our first MahiMahi on day three and a lovely advent coffee and cookies yesterday. As its getting warmer the Caribbean is on our minds! Cheers from Moana and Crew.. read more...
