GarliX - 30sm vorm Ziel - kein Motor meh

Tour: Darwin - Lombok, gesamt ca. 950sm, wir sind daMensch, kann es nicht mal langweilig werden!! Nun quälen wir uns schon so durch dieses windschwache Gebiet; unsere GarliX kommt noch vorwärts, wenn’s eigentlich nicht mehr geht. Wir haben die Nase voll mit 3-4kn und dicken Wellen eine weitere Nacht hier draußen zu verbringen. Heute früh dann - 12kn Wind. Wow - war verbunden mit dicken Wolken. Also, Motor aus und Segel hoch. Es war morgens 5:00 - Wachwechsel und ich schlüpfte dankbar in die Koje. Keine 30Minuten später kein Wind mehr; Motor an… und… da war nichts. Kein Klick, kein GARNICHTS. Auch die Hausfrauenreparatur - „alle Sicherungen drin“ - „Hauptschalter an/aus“ brachte nichts. Und das im Dunklen, 30sm vor der finish line, und so richtig viel Vertrauen, dass sich ein Yanmar. read more...

Luna Quest - Monday, September 7th, 2015

Noon Position: 09.47S 118.02EDistance run: 158 logged milesThe fuel of the last of 8 jerrycans has been poured into the diesel tank. Each jerrycan holds 20 ltrs. It has been the most windless passage so far although the earlier boats encountered some favourable breezes. It is 95F(32C) inside the boat with the sun almost overhead and not a cloud in the sky. The sea is as calm as a duckpond save for the remnants of a swell from the South. Our engine has been on since early yesterday morning except for a two-hour break early last night when a fresh breeze sprang up from the Southeast. Our hearts leapt for joy in anticipation of a quiet sail through the night, but only too soon did we have to go back on the engine and it has not stopped since. 118 Miles to go to the finish line and then. read more...

Hejira - ARC crew sign off - for now

28 57.763N 013 32.379NSaturday 5th September 2015‘Marina Lanzarote’ has turned out to be a real find. It is less than a year old with the staff so keen to make one happy it borders on obsequiousness. With a 10% discount for ARC participants and superb shore side facilities, what could be missing. Well, it would be ‘nit picking’ but, a bar with Sky Sports 1 would have been helpful so we could have watched the England vs Ireland triumph (my daughter in Dublin has told me that we have some Irish followers of the blog) so we had to take a taxi to the nearest tattoo resort to watch it in a ubiquitous Irish bar – very pleasant! Having said that, with the crew comprising two Welshmen and a Scot, I was severely outnumbered and I promise I didn’t labour any points, particularly with the tests to. read more...

Hejira - Canaries Romp

29 14.400N 013 21.570WFriday 4th September 2015Dawn finds us between the islands to the north of Lanzarote having had a wonderful, exhilarating day and night of sailing with the wind on then behind the beam, touching 8 knots at times. On this passage, we were able for the first time to replicate (almost) the crossing circumstances in terms of electricity generation under sail. I am happy to report that with the Watt & Sea hydrogenerator, Air Breeze wind generator and photo voltaic panels, we are comfortably able to keep up with our demand, running all the navigation systems, fridge, freezer and auto pilot. The water maker will draw another 4 amps when that is repaired but I am very pleased with the situation.Unfortunately the conditions necessitated a change of plan for our evening. read more...

Hejira - Gordon Ramsey Haywood

31 05.640N 015 12.601WThursday 3rd September 2015Having breakfasted to our capacity in the hotel which provided an ‘all you can eat’ buffet of excellent quality and value, we did our final shop and slipped our lines, heading out past the Ilhas Desertas before adjusting our course for the northern end of Lanzarote.Using a non-slip mat and magnetic chess board, Barry and Stephen were able to lock horns again, Barry gaining the upper hand on this occasion, 1 – 1.Stephen is the one who looks like an extra from ‘Bridge on the River Kwai’.Bob seemed a little pensive all afternoon and this turned out not to be concerns about keeping his breakfast but apprehension about his turn in the galley where his creation was to be spaghetti carbonara. In the event, the meal was a triumph and this may be a. read more...

Hejira - Surreal Surroundings

Wednesday 2nd September 2015I have seldom encountered a Marina that tries harder to make visitors welcome than Quinta do Lorde. We were met outside the Marina by a rib which showed us to our berth and took our lines. The young lady in the office was most accommodating offering advice and giving us a voucher for 15% discount in the bars and restaurants (as visiting yachtsmen) and a 30% discount for ARC participants. The facilities were excellent and with a supermarket and several bars and restaurants what could be wrong with the place? Well, it is a little strange. It is a purpose built Hotel, Resort & Marina complex which has been quite nicely designed to incorporate some ‘olde worlde charm’ as a coastal village but the periphery is neglected and unoccupied. The location is well. read more...

Hejira - Madeira Welcome

32 44.475N 016 42.718WTuesday 1st February 2015Monday was a pleasant sunny day and the clear sky and flatter sea lifted the spirits of the crew with the sea sickness all but forgotten. Stephen was reluctant however to relinquish the black rubber bucket suspended at his bed head as a constant reminder of ‘the bad times’. There was time for Stephen and Barry to play chess while Bob and I washed the decks with sea water which only seemed to replace the dirt marks with salt streaks. As evening descended Stephen was delighted to see a whale breaching off the stern and continued to scan the horizon with the binoculars for a repeat performance with no success. Lunch of cold meat and cheese salad accompanied by Barry’s homemade bread rolls was followed in the evening by a corned beef hash with. read more...

Hejira - Normal Surgery Resumed

33 51.118N 014 34.458WMonday 31st August 2015With the deadline of flights from Arrecife on Lanzarote and the added attraction of an arrival for the England World Cup warm up game against Ireland, we are pressing on and with the feeble wind, we are resorting to the almost constant use of the engine.I am very happy to report that after a partial relapse, all of the crew are now well and participating fully – to the extent that Stephen is contributing his ‘Notes from the Doc(k)’ as follows:- “Having been a tad let down by my normally reliable friends Stugeron and Stemetil, I have now emerged from two days of an intimate relationship with a black rubber bucket. Having contemplated the chances of successful self cannulation in a corkscrewing Hejira, oral fluids are now, thankfully,. read more...

Hejira - What a relief

34 59.299N 012 06.641WSunday 30th August 2015Yesterday was not one of the best.Unfortunately, the sea state did not abate during the day which failed to bring the hoped for relief to those with the ‘mal de mar’.The swells passing under the stern made the galley only suitable for accomplished jugglers and I do not begin to qualify. First a jug of sauce lost its equilibrium and spread its contents over the work surface, cooker and floor then, all the washing up crashed to the floor both before being washed and then again from the draining board – grrrr.It was also time to commission the water maker as, because once it is initiated, it needs to be maintained, it has never been put to work since it was installed by Northshore 3 years ago. I should have expected that this would not just be. read more...

Hejira - Tom & Dick

36 09.387N 009 38.085WSaturday 29th August 2015Our adventures resume with Barry. Bob and I returning to Vilamoura on Wednesday to prepare and victual before our departure on the 520 mile passage to Madeira once Stephen arrived on Friday.The forecast was for good reaching on Friday night but, unfortunately, Stephen succumbed to reaching of a different nature in the evening and was confined to his berth throughout the night.Stephen is our ‘yacht medic’ (Williams, not Maturin) and he did not have a good day. After landing at Faro Airport, he found himself locked in a toilet cubicle when the handle broke and had to be rescued. Soon after our departure, he tried his hand at fishing and managed to get the line wound into the wind generator putting that out of action, then he was violently ‘tom. read more...

Nunca se está contente com o que se tem.Ou é vento a mais, ou é vento a menos. Ou mar a mais, ou mar a menos. Ou gasóleo a menos, ou gasóleo a menos. Quando, afinal, o que temps tido até agora tem sido excepcional!Mas hoje o que nos faz falta são os Amigos e a Família para festejarem connosco os 64 anos da minha patroa de alto mar!O dia começou com um nascer do sol espantoso, que se continuou com um tranquilo dia de vela. O vento é pouco, é verdade. Mas não se pode querer tudo.Estamos a celebrar os três, e não só os 64 anos da Manela.

Luna Quest - Sunday, September 6th, 2015

Noon Position: 10.44S 120.34EDaily run: 127 logged milesWe have left the Timor Sea and have entered the Indian Ocean on our way to Lombok (Indonesia). We are passing the island of Sumba, vaguely distinguishable to starboard, at a speed of 6.5kn. We must maintain this speed to reach Lombok in the morning of Tuesday to give us safe passage to the anchorage Gile Gede, but the Indian Ocean is very restless despite a near absence of wind. There is an aggressive swell from the South, set up no doubt by gales near southern Australia, that rocks the boat quite violently at times. It is impossible to carry any sail and dangerous to go on deck. The distance to Lombok is 300 miles and we either do 150 miles a day for two days or a 100 miles a day for three days. We have chosen to make our arrival. read more...

Firefly - Slow boat to Asia

Today is Sunday 6th September and Firefly is at latitude 11 degrees south and longitude 126 degrees east, en route to Kupang, West Timor, Indonesia. Yesterday afternoon there was a brief spell, less than an hour, when there was enough wind to sail and maintain a reasonable speed of between 4 and 5 knots. However since then we have been motoring and its looks set to continue, the sea is glassy and the forecast wind is minimal until we near Timor.Despite the lack of wind there are some benefits; the boat is not heeling over, making everything easier than usual when at sea, sleeping is possible in the forepeak as up at the front of the boat its normally too bumpy - up there the engine noise is minimal, the batteries are fully charged and its really beautiful out here. There is the odd cloud. read more...

Exody - Days 234-237: Tranquil Timor Sea

After a third amazing (yes we are still amazed!) sunset at sea,including green flash, the loom of the gas production platforms and a red flare off burning distantly illuminate the dark starlit sky before the waning moon rises orange astern and soon shines bright as a white torch beam into the cockpit. I am on the 22.00 to 02.00 watch Thursday night and we have just enough wind for most of my watch to sail close-hauled across the flat Timor Sea.Our course from Darwin to Lombok steers around unseen underwater mountain ranges as if they were islands - prompted by 'Caution No. 1' on our chart: "The banks lying between Timor and NW Australia are largely unsurveyed and caution is necessary when navigating in their vicinity" Today, Friday 4th, we are clocking up serious engine hours heading. read more...

Luna Quest - Saturday, September 5th, 2015

Noon Position: 11.16S 122.50EDaily run: 156 logged milesWe have been running the engine since 2am Friday morning and still have not reached a sea area where the wind will fill the sails. Each morning and evening we fill the diesel tank from one of our 8 jerrycans stowed on deck. One jerrycan holds 20ltrs and feeds 12 hours of motoring. We have 4 full ones left and a diesel tank 3/4 full. We should be able to reach Lombok if we can sail a couple of days without using the engine: 450 miles to go.We spotted an Indonesian fishing boat last night without any lights or AIS on. The Australian Border Control had warned us against illegal fishing by the Indonesians in their territorial waters and had given us a plasticised card showing the kind of craft we might encounter. It was just the kind of. read more...

Firefly - Darwin, Kakadu, Nitmiluk, Lichfield and a didgereedoo

Firefly left Darwin at 0900 on Friday 4th September and is on passage to Kupang, Indonesia. This is an area notorious for calm conditions at this time of year and the forecast is not very promising regarding wind. We did manage to sail for the first 5 hours with a favorable tide but then the wind died away and we have had the engine on continuously since then. Its now Saturday morning, there is not a cloud in the sky and its absolutely scorching hot, although more comfortable at sea than it was in the marina in Darwin.We arrived in Darwin way back on Monday 24th August and spent the first day at anchor having been treated with a biocide to kill off any pests in our pipes. Early on Tuesday morning we entered Tipperary Waters Marina via the lock and Firefly was been moored there for 10. read more...

Starblazer - 04/09/2015 – On passage to Lombok, Indonesia

First the good news.We were ready to enter the lock at 0640, 5 minutes early, and had cleared the lock by 0645.There was very little height difference either side of the lock because it was approaching a high water of 7 metres, it had only been a high of 5 metres the week before when we entered.That is probably the end of the good news!We motored fairly slowly towards the anchorage close to the start line, the prop banged about a bit but settled down until John pulled it into reverse until he was sure a boat had actually started moving away from us.When he pushed it back into forward it banged then vibrated the whole boat.We slowly crept into the anchorage.The prop has been misbehaving for a couple of weeks or so but when John swam under the boat to check the blades moved freely when we. read more...

Luna Quest - Friday, September 4th, 2015

Noon Position: 11.17S 125.15EDaily run: 155 logged milesAn Australian Border Control aeroplane flew over low yesterday afternoon and perhaps they had been trying to contact us. We heard them talking to Wayward Wind, another participant yacht in the World ARC fleet of 14 yachts. I then discovered we did not have the VHF on dual watch, so I called them on Ch 16 to report our details. Today we have motored out of the Australian territorial waters and into the Indonesian waters. The wind is still extremely light so that our engine has been working overtime. The forecast is for a little more wind once we reach the bottom end of East Timor, some 24 hours of motoring away. The sea is quite smooth enabling us to make good progress under engine. Sometimes there is a head swell and one finds. read more...

Luna Quest - Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

Noon Position: 11.15S 127.25EDaily run: 139 logged milesThe good weather is keeping us in good spirits and tanning our feeble bodies. Despite the light winds from the Southwest, we are making reasonable progress, although well off our desired westerly course.All night we have been sailing close-hauled west north west in a gentle 8 knot breeze from the west south west, so this morning we put the engine on at 11.30am and set a course of 270 degrees, hoping for the wind to change direction and increase a little in strength. We shall have to wait and see. The nights are truly spectacular without any clouds anywhere and a sky bespangled with stars until the moon comes up late in the evening to give us pleasant night vision. The AIS (Automatic Identification System) alerted us just after. read more...

Starblazer - 03/09/2015 – A week in Darwin

Our lock time was 1030 so we pulled up an extremely muddy anchor just after0900 to refuel at Cullen Bay before making our way around to TipperaryWaters Marina, following Firefly.The fuel dock has an automated pump, weforgot to get a receipt so no tax refund on that when we cleared out.(Thefirst taxation faux pas!)The lock was running about 15 minutes behindschedule, we entered at 1045 and were tied up by 1100 though not without aminor mishap.We caught the BBQ on the edge of the lock gatepost, it gotrather bent.John spent the rest of the day installing the new fridge whichworks very well.He chased up a copy of the invoice but forgot to print it,the second taxation faux pas.Wednesday was spent on a variety of jobs including finding a man who couldstraighten and repair the BBQ.That evening. read more...

The weather has been permanently sunny, the people have been helpful and kind; we could get all boat work done we needed to get done and the entertainment has been out of the ordinary. Last Thursday we were taken for a boat tour of part of the Adelaide River to see Australian wildlife and crocodiles jumping up for bate held out by our guides on long sticks. Powerful animals that eat just anything and can manage a small person in one meal session. We have seen them stealing up to waterfowl and devouring them in whole. Birdlife included watching a kingfisher from nearby dive in the murky river waters and succeeding every time in. read more...

Y2K - PRE-ARC #3 - Heading to Gibraltar–San Pietro Island (Sardinia) to Menorca (Balearics)

We stay 2 days moored at marina Sifredi of Carloforte. We visit the lovely village of Carloforte while waiting for a good wheather forecast and fair winds. We finally leave the marina on August 25th after doing a good provisioning, filling our diesel tanks and water tanks. We sail south and drop our anchor in the nice bay of Punta Nera.We spend the day swimming and relaxing. A strong northwesterly wind blows all day but according to all forecasts and gribs we check this is going to change for tomorrow where apparently they expect North-North Easterly winds becoming East – NorthEasterly, just perfect for our crossing to Balearics.We set sails to Menorca the next morning on August 26th at 8am, we expect to arrive at Port Mahon after aprox 36 hours and 200 miles, keeping an average speed of. read more...

Laissez Faire - Hunter & Prey (jungle skills) - Log day 1, Pre Arc, Palma d. Mallorca

Days of maintenance followed by days of maintenance would describe our routine more than precisely. This week we have pulled both our engines apart, it´s time for new turbos and exhaust elbows, injectors are getting serviced and we cleaned our heat exchangers, we are basically doing a general engine overhaul. After our Yanmars, having to slave for us for over 1.5 thousand hours will be as good as new and ready to go for new adventures. We already have met our first fellow arc boat, SY Rum Truffle around 2 months ago, which just returned back in port, being just moored a couple of berths away from us. We help us out were we can and the ARC spirit is already alive. We can't wait to meet more ARC boats.I know, all that is being very unrelated to our logs title.. Hunter & Prey? We. read more...

Exody - Days 226- 233 : Darwin

We arrived after 24 hours flat sea motoring to anchor in Darwin's large but shallow Fannie Bay.Exody was dive-inspected then quarantined with disinfected seacocks and prohibited use of all plumbing for 10 hours - this to ensure no infestation from a foreign mussel that recently wiped out a marina gate here causing $millions of remedial costs.The 7 metre tides here mean all marinas are locked and so we are here with most other boats at Tipperary Waters Marina just outside downtown Darwin.Here we have done major work- disassembling the vane steering gear to free up bearings, sending the pushpit and liferaft cradle for remedial stainless welding work, running repairs to canvas work and fitting a new alternator.It's hot work - 35-37 degrees but not humid- its still winter after all!We've. read more...

Shiva - Log day -90: Shiva & crew are getting prepared

August 7, 2015 – On a sunny Friday afternoon the Shiva crew, fully complete, got together in Hoog Soeren, the Netherlands. Under the fine hospitality of Herman & Inge the crew members started sharing their expectations, plans and dreams about the Atlantic Crossing. After months of preparation by Herman & Inge and weeks of excitement of the 4 additional crew members it was a great pleasure to be gathered together with the final group of 6 that will experience the ARC 2015 with Sailing Yacht Shiva. From discussions about the number of eggs to bring on board, to clothing and medical aid kits, to wonders about the wave heights and dreams of dolphins and flying fish and blue panoramas... It was a great first get-together and now the countdown has officially started for us! About Shiva. read more...

Starblazer - 24/08/2015 - Darwin

The past couple of days have been filled with highs and one negative.The negative is the wind, barely there and very changeable!We have motored almost non-stop since Saturday morning, only turning it off for the radio net at 0900 and 1800.At times we could have sailed slowly but we wanted to catch the tide down the Dundas Straight at about 1900 on Sunday so we motored.Now for the positives.The seas have become smooth with only a slight swell allowing us to take showers comfortably.The watermaker is now working well, we have filled the tanks to the top twice since leaving Cairns.John has finally landed a fish; since leaving Mackay almost three weeks ago he has lost at least three fish.One broke the line taking the lure and weight with it, a second one mangled the lure and straightened out. read more...

Y2K - Y2K - PRE-ARC Day 2 - Heading to Gibraltar- Trapani (Sicily) to Villasimius (Sardinia)

The african high pressure on the Mediterranean Sea starts weakening mid August, exactly when we decide to leave Trapani. Cold fronts from the Atlantic start getting their influence on Italian seas bringing strong winds, gale force, rough sea and pouring rain.The first time we try to cast off is August 15th but as soon as we approach the island of Levanzo we fight against a terrible sea from West – waves more than 2 meters high – and against strong winds. We have to sail about 150 nautical miles with these weather conditions and honestly it is not appealing at all. We are not in any rush after all. We decide to go back to Levanzo where we pick up a mooring ball, enjoy the rest of the day and the gorgeous view, well protected in the bay of Cala Fredda.The next morning the weather changes. read more...
