Jadamama - Blog day 14 Jadamama

ARC Ditty for my grandkids (with apology to Edward Lear) We Went To Sea In A Catamaran We went to sea in a catamaran, In a cat we went to sea.Our friends all said ‘Take care, take care,We don’t know how you dare!” On a sunny Sunday we left the CanariesAnd waves goodbye, goodbye.With a hundred boats we all set sailFar out in the blue North Atlantic.The very next dayAll the boats disappeared!Were they stolen by the fairies?And a flying fish flew onto our deck,‘Oh silly fish, what in the heck?’ We went to sea in a catamaran,In a cat we went to sea.Two hundred miles the very first day,And the dolphins tried to race us!‘Where are you going? We’ll show you the way!’But on we sailed, not a backward glance,And they couldn't keep up their dance.But a flying fish landed on. read more...

Circe - The Blue Blues

The Blue Blues Before we left for our passage, multitudes of friends and family members wished us “fair winds”. That’s what we hoped for as well, so we uploaded the PredictWind app on all of our devices so we we’re armed with the tool needed to see the winds. I imagine many of us use PredictWind. The beauty of PredictWind, and I mean literally the beauty, is the colors used in the map display to indicate the various wind speeds. The warmer the colors, the better. We want to sail enveloped by greens, yellows and deep oranges, indicating winds of 10 to 25 knots. Comfortable sailing. What PredictWind is indicating is in our path is exactly what we don’t like to see - blue of any shade. The blue of the sky, the blue of the sea, the indigo of dead calm - all dead ahead. What a game changer. read more...

Blue Moon - day 13 blog blue moon

We sailed into the weekend with our very first wobbly day and a working engine! We got up with the sun in our faces and tried helming the Blue Moon in very light winds from 8 to 12 knots. Quite the challenge to make sure the boat is not squeeking and rattling and not to overtire our rigging. Each watch team took their turns and when off duty, bikini‘s , sun hats, sketch blocks, magazines and buckets of salt water appeared. Well, sailing across the Atlantic is also this! After some heavy weather days, stressful situations and not much sleep we welcome them with open arms. The boat is heating up in no time, and we all know what happens when hatches are open for fresh air(read our blog day 10).. so outside is the place to be. We even played our first UNO game outside on an open folded. read more...

Salamander - What Now?

In the immediate aftermath of deciding to retire from the race we are faced with a long motor all the way to Rodney Bay, St. Lucia.We are making just over 6kts on a course of 290 degrees, clawing back the miles we diverted in an attempt to find and keep some wind.The sea is so calm and not in the slightest matching our expectations of large swells and mountainous waves!It's clear already that we made the right decision and, furthermore that no matter what route we had chosen we would have found ourselves in the same situation.Some of on board are already conjuring up plans for future trips and maybe even doing the ARC again at some point. The draw of the sea is quite powerful!We now have plenty of time for reflection on what the future holds. For now we are just enjoying being at sea.Tim. read more...

Salamander - The Big Blue Hole

We've been using a series of wind prediction forecast models to help with our sailing strategy and decide which course to steer in order to benefit from the strongest winds. Salamander is 30 tonnes unladen and likely a good deal heavier with all the fuel, water and provisions on board. With all this weight we need the magic ingredient of wind to make us go. The more the merrier!These wind predictions have led us to make a decision to head south, approximately 350 nautical miles further south than the rhumbline, in search of wind.Last night we realised all wind searching had been in vain!The wind charts are colour coded for strength of wind. Blue means little or no wind going through green, yellow, orange and red as the wind speed increases to 25kts.We now had a very large blue area ahead. read more...

Skye Blue - Skye Blue "To motor or not to motor, that is the question"

Well hello there ARC fans. You read this as we enter our third and hopefully final week. Throughout the journey we have shared our new experiences and musings but we would now like to share some of the more quirky, mundane and otherwise more repetitive activities and conversations of a transatlantic crossing. But before we do, a few hot off the press news items. News Bulletin 1 - We have a new nickname for Neil (formerly known as Flashheart). Borne out of his insatiable appetite and ever willingness to finish off the team leftovers. Yesterdaysomeone described him as being like a "wheelie bin", only for someone seconds later to chime in -"more like a Neily-bin!". Sometime this stuff writes itself. Sorry Neil we know you loved your Flasheart moniker but the crew's word is final. News. read more...

Katy - Saturday 3/12 Day 13 Unlucky for Some

The wind has died now to 5-6 knots so not a lot of progress today. Also cloud cover so no solar charging to speak of. Not the best day but we're plugging along. Tomorrow first thing we'll get the big parasailor sail out but its a bit swelly here and also heading towards night so don't want to hoist now. We really need to get to the 12th or 13th latitude for some wind but that is some way south for us still and I don't want to lose too much westing for southing but may have to bite the bullet and compromise on this. To be honest it is very comfortable sailing now which is a true rarity this year on Katy so we should just enjoy it. It feels like the average since leaving Plymouth is a force 6 so stuck in a force 1-2 should be enjoyed before it all goes to sh*t again!. read more...

Oceano - Log Day 14 - Navigare necesse est

We have this running joke among the crew that our catamaran is a love boat. Remember the cult tv series? The theme song ( the looooooveee boaaaat..) the great cruising ship filled with people and their complicated love lives, dangerous liaisons between passengers and the crew, dramas, comedy, thrills, lots of fashionable clothing, alcohol, very bad seamanship and even worst acting? I used to adore it. Our vessel is not great in size, but our personalities are larger than life, that is for sure. And we spend our days moving around the deck, the cabins, exchanging glances, remarks, getting sincere, playing dumb, joking, cracking up, singing, crying, suggesting, flirting, behaving like little brats bored to death, we wind each other up, we console, we have therapy sessions and silent. read more...

Arkyla - 11 Jun 22: Ready to go

The time is nearly upon us for the start.  Over the last few days skipper James has been eyeing up the weather, racer-boy Rich has been eyeing up the opposition, charmer Mark has been eying up the totty, and motorboater Mike has mostly been eyeing up the chocolate rations!  A quiet evening is planned for tonight after yesterday’s day sail around the Hoe and impromptu attempt to drink Jolly Jacks dry after the Rally welcome dinner; we will be as fresh for the Biscay leg as our combined 227 years of creaking bones will allow… James Kenning . read more...

Salamander - A Tough Call

From my circumnavigation with wife Sue, daughter Hilary and son Jules, 4 previous ARC Atlantic crossings and 2 ARC Europe crossings, through to today, my 12th Atlantic crossing I have used the GFS weather model as a guide to what might like ahead.Since the advent of Iridium I have gone on to look at other weather models as a basis for making daily, or sometimes twice daily, decisions as to where to point, either to reach a destination directly, or to find wind to assist in going in the general direction of the destination.I am a lucky and proud dad to have both our son Jules and daughter Hilary sailing "alongside" us in the Atlantic this year. Both are now already experienced Atlantic sailors and indeed ARC Atlantic sailors.On the same day, 29th October, unexpectedly, I received an email. read more...

Salamander - Tim - Why am I doing ARC 2022?

The last few years haven't exactly been the best. Amongst all the good stuff I have lost my father and mother, neither as a result of COVID but complicated by it.Exactly the same time my mother passed we chose to move house. Moving from a house where all the children had grown up but had now fled the nest.My mother had pancreatic cancer, so we knew she had limited time. This allowed me the luxury of being able to talk to her at length about her life and the things she was taking with her. It became abundantly clear that "stuff" was totally unimportant and that experiences were everything. After she passed I vowed to create as many "peak experiences" as I could.A peak experience can be described as something that you set about doing on purpose and might be as simple as having tea with an. read more...

Salamander - Sargasso Seaweed

One of the key features of the ocean for the last few days is the presence of large swathes of Sargasso Seaweed. Floating in great masses, wind strewn across the Atlantic.I wasn't expecting to see anything like this and it's quite a strange sight! The seas at the moment are relatively calm, without the huge swell I was expecting to see & feel.The seaweed is in sufficiently large masses to potentially cause a problem if it was to get caught around part of the boat! I don't fancy dragging a great field of Sargasso for the rest of the trip!Tim - Salamander Tour Manager and Guest Social Media Editorthesalamandersailingadventure.com. read more...

Salamander - Mizzen Sail

A new addition to our sail plan is the hoisting of our Mizzen Sail. So far on this trip it has remained neatly furled inside the mizzen mast. Now our point of sailing has allowed us to deploy it.With three sails now powering us along we seem to be able to keep the momentum going. This is so important on a boat weighing over 30 tonnes.Wind speed has been a bit variable and is quite light for what Salamander would prefer but by picking our route and continuing to monitor our position relative to expected winds we hope to give ourselves the best opportunity as the situation develops.It must be quite a sight to see us fully sailed but there aren't any other boats anything like close enough to see us!!Tim - Salamander Tour Manager and Guest Social Media Editorthesalamandersailingadventure.com. read more...

CATCH ME IF YOU CANDenkt sich der Wind mit uns!Aber zunächst das Wichtigste:Wir hatten einen phantastischen Tag! Konstante Winde aus ONO (Ost Nord Ost, also mehr Ost als Nord) mit 10kn bis 14 kn und machen gute fahrt, im Durchschnitt 6,5 kn.Gestern Nacht , oder besser gestern Morgen gegen 04:30 UTC waren wir plötzlich von Squalls umgeben. Überall taten sich welche auf, verschwanden aber auch.Ich habe zur Beruhigung von Nicole, aber auch zur Existenzsicherung unseres Spieine Reaktionsentfernung von 1.5 sm festgelegt. Sollte ein Squall die Entfernung von 1,5 sm unterschreiten, wird der Spi geborgen. Und dann mußten wir es gegen 04:30 Uhr auch machen. Und es blieb bis zum späten Vormittag entsprechend labil. Das Foto zeigt die Situation von 089:55 UTC.Der Spi mußte dann auch unten bleiben. read more...

Forteenth day on the water.2341 GMT.2241 Local.12º 59 N047º 12 W///macho.studios.quantitativelyhttps://w3w.co/macho.studios.quantitatively A good day. Relatively quiet night.  We have been operating at a sub-optimal level. Things been Okay, just not quite with a sense of urgency and whole attention to detail.  Things clicked today. Really coming together.  The objective was to be sailing under Code Zero the nanosecond the sun appeared above the horizon. To achieve this, we set to prepping the process about an hour in advance. Mostly in darkness.  Tom and Peter were sorting the foredeck. Jenny and Louisa running lines aft. The whole process, including clean-up took under and hour. Local sunrise. read more...

Sabine - Sabine (118) ARC blog update - 3 Dec 2022

Hello interweb friends, Captain Stape on sail boat Sabine right here (///detains.density.downstairs)The morning breaks and everything is calm. A little too calm. The wind must have decided to go and blow somewhere else for the day, because it’s definitely not here! The crew tell me this is, in fact, a relief. After being bished and bashed for what seems like a week, the crew are thankful that it’s a calmer, smoother ride, even if the average speed has slowed. I myself am happy at not having to continually shift my weight from leg to leg in order to balance on my perch. As pancakes and maple syrup are handed round (it seems everyone eats well on this trip), there’s talk of today’s tasks: first off, tape up the vent on the starboard forward hatch. It’s been leaking and dripping into the. read more...

Endeavour III - Endeavour III - Day 14

We have now completed two weeks at sea and this is reflected in our increasingly haggard appearances. Dave offering to lend me and Imara T-shirts this morning was a stark reminder that we have been wearing the same outfits for the last few days. Point taken and we promptly showered and changed outfits.The wind has dropped off today and is forecast to remain elusive for the next few days. Reluctantly, we turned the engine on as we bobbed along with the sails flapping. However after some calculations we realised we will not have enough fuel to motor the remaining 580 miles to St Lucia, although I did offer our remaining supplies of olive oil to help bolster this. The excitement of the day came at dusk, whilst dinner was being prepared (beef curry, dal and flatbreads) suddenly a sound came. read more...

Navasana - Day 14 On the Iron Genny, looking for wind

The wind died last night, with strengths below forecast and for the first time since we left las Palmas we are motoring hoping to catch some new wind from the south and then later some new from the north, hopefully dodging some headwinds. It’s going to be tricky to find wind to get to St Lucia. We are taking it forecast by forecast with the weather routing models changing dramatically everyday. Today was sunny with flat seas. Dan made a delicious Spanish tortilla which got us all into food comas, making for a very lazy day :-) We put our fishing lines out but all we caught was seaweed :-( Oh and we did see we some whales in the distance. Hoping to catch some wind tomorrow so we can start sailing again!More on sailingnavasana.com. read more...

Avventura - Log Day 14: La notte

About half of the navigation takes place in the dark. Therefore, today's picture of the day is a picture of the night.At the beginning, two weeks ago, there was no moon. The night was pitch black with a truly indefinite number of stars, and countless shooting stars.By now, the moon has grown bigger. Fewer stars are visible, but the moonlight is amazing. And it helps controling the gennaker (On the other hand: In a moonless night, referring to stars is great for navigation).The picture was taken after the end of a nightshift at about 3:15UTC.Position at 22:40 UTC (15:14.57N 45:27.40W). read more...

Jo - Tag 13 - Bergfest + Seefahrer-Tradition

Heute Morgen war es soweit. Wir standen schon Minuten lang vor dem Plotter (unsere digitale Seekarte), haben das kleine Dreieick beobachtet, das unsere Schiffsposition markiert und vor allen Dingen die kleine Zahl, die oben drüber steht. Unsere Restdistanz. Noch 1.501 Meilen. Tick Tack, Tick Tack... 1008 Uhr. Die Zahl springt um. Nur noch 1.500 Meilen. Bergfeeeest, jipiiieh! Die ganze im Cockpit versammelte Crew jubelt. 13 Tage und 12 Nächte haben wir bereits gemeinsam unterwegs auf See verbracht. Das Ziel rückt mit jedem Tag und jeder zurück gelegten Meile näher. Wer jetzt behauptet, dass eine Atlantiküberquerung von Gran Canaria in die Karibik aber nur 2.800 Meilen sind und wir daher erst bei 1.400 Meilen Bergfest hätten, dem geben wir zumindest was die (grobe) Gesamtdistanz angeht. read more...

Lomvi - Day 16 - Bucket over board drill

Dear zen pen friend,Since Denmark, Lomvi has been equipped with two buckets. About one week ago Niko trew one bucket in the ocean, only to later realise that there was no rope tied to it. Only one bucket left.Today, the crew was taking a bucket bath, now with no rope tied to the bucket, as it does not have a handle. In a bliss moment Kasper looses the bucket to the ocean. The crew were now quicker to react, turned the boat around. Jumped ship to save the bucket. Boat comes around again to pick up the bucket life guard. Great execution, and an exiting bath. We are back to genaker after a day of well being here on the big Atlantic. We are also back on the map, which mean we are getting closer to shore. Hjalmar was, in retrospective, very quiet for a while today. Turns out he had smeared. read more...

Mairmade - Day#14 - The [fuel] "Situation"

After motoring all night at a very low RPM (1200 vs. our normal 1500 - 1600), we got a reading on our fuel consumption along with updated weather forecasts... It's a mixed bag!For the forecasts: The good news is that the main models all seem to be aligning (saying about the same thing) for the balance of our passage, the bad news: they all say no wind! 🤣🤣We're no longer heading to 14N, 48W to find wind because we don't think there'll be any by the time we get there. Instead we're taking a direct line to St. Lucia on a heading of 275°M 👍For the fuel consumption, we did much better than we expected at 1200RPM, and extrapolating our consumption rate, boat speed, and remaining fuel, we think we can motor all the way to St. Lucia with about 5% to spare (details below).This is great news. read more...

Hej med jer  Livet ombord på Skye Blue på vej over Atlanten. imorgensøndag har vi sejlet i 14 dage. har oplevet alt det jeg har drømt om. Fanget fisk, sejlet i døgndrift, set på månen ogstjernerne.  Ikke mindst været sammen med 7 andre mennesker ombord, 5skotter og 2 danskere. Det er måske her den største oplevelsekommer, at være tilstede, lytte, omgås hinanden med empati,respekt og forståelse for forskelligheder. Vi er på en rejse, der har været undervejs i flere år,dette en måske grunden til at at vi omgås hinanden ydmygt og med åbentsind. I en hverdag hvor jeg jeg oplever travlhed som til tiderkan betyde, at man ikke er så meget til stede eller at man ikke altidformår at finde plads til andres tilgang til livet, arbejdet, menneskerneomkring sig....Livet ombord her. read more...

Jonnie nudged into Friday’s territory in the blog yesterday so the fair weather and nice steady winds with Big Blue soaring was the order of events. Delicious food continues with Richard pulling a chilli con carne out the bag and a wonderful salad for lunch. Somehow we’re still going strong with avocados, of all things, refusing to ripen. Oranges and apples are dwindling but still keeping us in tasty breakfasts for a good few more days. A thermos has been put to excellent use extending our yoghurt supplies with Charlotte in charge of yoghurt brewing. Thank you Emma for including this, delicious! Dried fruit and nuts are endless and we have a plentiful supply of tinned food and cabbages galore! Biscuits also, many many biscuits left. Chocolate is, however, running short… Dolphins on. read more...

Lothlorien - Tag 14 auf See - Wir sind in der großen Flaute

Jetzt ist sie da, die Flautenzone. Wir haben im Augenblick noch 6 bis 8 Knoten Wind und können damit um die 3 Knoten Fahrt machen - leider jedoch nicht direkt in Richtung St. Lucia. Da wir noch mehr als 800 Meilen fahren müssen und der Diesel für bestenfalls 500 Meilen reicht, müssen wir uns durchkämpfen. Wir wechseln uns weiterhin im Stundenrhythmus am Ruder ab und genießen dabei die Sonne.An Deck ist es angenehm, im Schiff haben wir jedoch etwas über 30 Grad - wir sind in den Tropen. ;-). read more...

Xenial - Day 25 - Grenada!

Sometime in the night between Thursday and Friday, depending on whether we were still on Xenial Standard Time or on local Grenada time, Janne cried “Land!”. Actually, he cried “Lights! And not boat lights!” - he has by far the best eyesight on board (his glasses are rumored to be custom made in Italy), so it’s no wonder he is part of the Spotting Committee. We sat on deck watching the lights get closer and closer and looking at the mile count get smaller and smaller. In between Christmas songs (you can blame me for that), we listened on the radio as boats and friends who had not seen each other in days or weeks greeted each other with joy, if you want to call spotting each other on AIS “seeing each other”. I thought it was wonderful to hear all these happy voices, the Swedes think. read more...

Skyelark 2 - D13 Unlucky for some

D13 Unlucky for someD13 Saturday 3rd December...but not for the crew on Skyelark 2 – the crew were spoilt by a delightful gesture from our 2 skippers... they stood the crew down on Friday night and covered the night watch between them letting us all catch up on some much needed sleep. We had refreshed and very happy faces at our full english breakfast... the race is on...We made good distance overnight under 15-22kts of wind with our skippers (Dan + Christian-R) on the helm – of course, we would have been faster if our highly tuned racing crew had been on duty?We know we are heading for the dead-zone but we are determined to search out every ounce of wind that we can to minimise our hours under motor and race penalties.For our crew: results matter... and we will be pushing all the way to. read more...

Mairmade - Day#13

Day#13Squall activity subsided, but we still had a couple overnight that we had to manoeuvre around. One got Russ and me wet (we were on watch 3am-6am), but nothing like the night before. We have also had no squalls during daylight hours today.We had to turn the engine on for lack of wind early this morning, but it was back off after 2hours and we were sailing again in 8-10 knots on the beam. Just the kind of day Chloe loves, so she sprang into action and did a fantastic job of keeping the boat moving forward at a 6 knot average despite the winds running between 6 and 8 knots; very light. Finally, after about 50nm, the wind dropped to <4 knots, and even Chloe couldn't help out, so the engine is back on now.The light wind sail presented a fishing opportunity that Harry cashed in on.. read more...
