EH01 - Bog Day 11 - Less than 1000 Nm to go

  Thismorning we reached our 1000 Nm to go point so excitement is building on boardabout our arrival in about 5 days time. We‘ve had some eventful days since ourlast blog, have a look what our lovely Sue has to share:   Well it’sbeen a veritable Disney sea life experience here on EH01, over the last coupleof days. On Tuesday morning 3 of our number saw several ..... what looked likeyellow cushions ...... drifting by us. One  thought  was that theywere jelly fish or possibly sunfish- a slow moving blob that floats along justunder the surface of the water. Definitely one to look up when we get home! Thena shout went up from our skipper, at about 4pm on Tuesday – he’d spotted adolphin- to our port side. An immediate cry to all on board was made as we hadpromised to raise. read more...


EH01 - LOG DAY 8 - Half way through...

So here we are, half the distance done, right in the middle of theAtlantic. We’ve  had a nice 3 days with fairly light conditions. Thankfullythe squally nights are over for now which made our lives uncomfortable duringthe first week. Our last hairy night was Saturday when a proper electrical stormcame through with thunders all around us. We had to switch off all ourinstruments and try to sail the boat safely with now aid. Luckily the sun wascoming up slowly and the storm passed shortly after too. Since then the wind hasbeen easing. Last night was the lightest so far, 7-8 knots max but the crew hasbeen fantastic trying to focus and driving the boat to the right direction withour kite on all around the clock. It was Annabel’s birthday yesterday so we had a little celebration with. read more...


EH01 - LOG DAY 5 - First Catch

We’ve had a mixed couple of days with still several squalls on Wednesdayand then very light winds especially yesterday and last night. Conditions havebeen a little exhausting for everyone, as we had to keep changing head sails andputting reefs in and then shaking them out on a regular basis. However, theweather seems to be settling now with 15 knots of easterly, north easterly windwhich allows us to run fairly close to our rhumb line After a few hick ups with our kite hoist yesterday, today we have it up,for the first time, and cruising along nicely. It is also getting warmer andwarmer so we have been having regular salt water showers to refreshourselves. Yesterday evening, just before the sun went down, we caught our first fish,a nice Dorado. Paddy and I managed to get it on board and. read more...


EH01 - LOG DAY 3 - Fast Ride

We have had a fantastic couple of days sailing. After the initial hick upsduring the first day the crew settled into the watch system nicely and they feelmore and more confident about sailing the boat. Conditions have been a littlechallenging due to the rolling waves bouncing the boat while poled out and allthis accompanied with regular squalls, especially last night, occasionallybringing 35-40 knots of wind with them. All this leading to a little bit ofexhaustion among the crew. However, this morning we were all very happy to learn that the honourableand good ship EH01 was one of the fastest boat in her class over the last 24hours, almost making 200 nautical miles and slowly catching up with ourfleet. Night sailing have been fantastic with a very bright full moon giving uslight through. read more...


EH01 - Log day 1 - Epic start

Hello World,   The good ship EH01 is now over her first 24 hour sail in this year’s ARCrace. We had a fantastic send off yesterday. Many people were cheering andsinging, DJs were playing while all the boats were leaving the marina in LasPalmas. EH01 crew was very excited and ready to sail across the big pond. The start was amazing with hundreds of boats circling around outside themarina waiting for their respective starts.  It was a fairly breezy day andwe encountered even more after the first 2-3 hours of the race. The wind pickedup to 35-40 knots in the acceleration zone on the south-east side of the islandwhich kept boats and their crews on their toes. Boats were broaching, droppingsails around us, kites were blown up so it was definitely an action packedafternoon. We also. read more...
