Blonde Moment - Blog 10

And then came Oeiras.......A wall painting competition- Paul found a very faded 2008 BM painting which I touched up whilst Paul did a new one for 2017.A tour of a poets park with sculptures, statues and poems set in lovely tree landscape; a very interesting palace and fortified wine cellar tour and tasting with very enthusiastic guide talking us through their three varieties.A chance to visit Lisbon and Cascais and several parties as we near the end of the rally.  BM hosted twenty to celebrate a wedding anniversary and friends 65th birthday.  Colin brought his guitar - no one wanted to break the magic, so we cooked pasta and sun dried tomato pesto for everyone and we all sang along until nearly midnight.Then a very fast downwind sail to Sines (7 hours) with a long spinnaker run. read more...

Lexington - 6/30/17. Manta Ray Point

Today was very nice. We stayed put. We all got some work done that we wanted to get done before we were in a marina. The main thing I wanted to do was clean the boat bottom. In marinas there is usually more restricted entry and exit of water and you have boats congested into one area. A lot of these boats discharge their waste into the sea. On marinas you also have the possibility of stray electricity in the water. It is less of a problem in salt water than fresh but most people do not recommend swimming in marinas other than their pool. I have read about it but can not accurately explain it. Salt water is more likely to conduct the stray current to ground. Fresh water is not conductive. The person in the water attracts the current and is paralyzed and drowns is how I remember it. It is. read more...

Lexington - 7/30/2017. Manta Ray Point

We are now in an area called the Yaswa group. It is a string of islands off the northwest of Fiji. We anchored at an area called Manta Ray Point. We are between Drawaqa Island and Nanuya Balavu Island. It was a nice anchorage but moderately deep. We snorkeled a little. We also met a couple on another boat anchored here. We were out snorkeling and they were sitting in their dinghy waiting for the sun to come from behind a cloud before they got in. As I snorkeled by their dinghy and looked up to see where I was, Debby (lady in other boat) calls out ” How are you doing Bob?” So this floored me that she would call me by name. My thought was how should I know this lady? With as many old girl friends as I have I always have to be on my toes to remember names which I am not good at. (Just. read more...

Hanna - Leg 5 - 24./25.5.2017 – Niue

Wir verbringen die Tage auf Niue, ausgesprochen wir dies Nuuii. Eine fantastische Insel, ein Juwel im Pazifik.Bevor wir aber die Insel erkunden können, muss Martin noch die ARC Flagge neu anbinden, die hat’s abgerissen. Dann machen wir eine Inseltour mit Keith, der uns viel zu erzählen hat. Keith ist der Commodore des Yachtclubs in Niue (Greatest little Yachtclub in the world J). Niue ist ein Korallenblock, welcher aus dem Meer gehoben wurde. Die Insel wird entsprechend auch als „the Rock“ bezeichnet. Keine sanften weissen Sandstrände à la Bora Bora, nein, das sind steile abgehackte Küsten, wild und Natur pur. Das Regenwasser läuft durch den Korallenstein durch, ohne gross Sedimente auszuwaschen. Entsprechend ist das Wasser um die Insel rum kristall klar, wie wir das noch nie gesehen. read more...

Hanna - Leg 5 - 20-23.5.2017 –Suwarrow – Niue

Den Samstag verbringen wir gemütlich in Suwarrow beim Schnorcheln und beim Müll zusammen sammeln auf Suwarrow. Ganz schön viel Plastik und Müll liegt da rum... Eigentlich waren 72 Stunden Aufenthalt in diesem schönen Atoll geplant, aber der Wetterbericht in Richtung Niue sieht das anders... Wir segeln also am Samstag gegen Abend (vor Sonnenuntergang) wieder los, um nicht wegen Winddreher über einen ganzen Tag länger nach Niue segeln müssen. Wir werden sehen, wie es wird...Kurz vor Niue fängt Tommy unseren ersten Fisch – einen Barracuda. Das gab ein leckeres Essen !!
