My side project
Introducing my side project, its goal, progress and future.
So, how is life aboard with two children and how is it to be surrounded by water all the time?
My wife and I now have a little daughter and it will be our first long trip on the ocean.
The concept of outsourcing labour is exactly what I had in mind in 2012, I wanted to outsource my own labour.
When, and only when, the tax is paid, customs release YOUR good and you become again the owner.
I navigated to Spain, rented a berth right next to Jebel Tariq (Gibraltar)
I'm soon going to take a break from my work and navigate to Jebel Tariq (Gibraltar)
I found a job in Morocco, so it seems I will not be doing long travels for at least one year
My new telephone card now stores some thirty contacts I did not have since I arrived in Morocco two months ago.
I spent some time making a trail of my voyage up until now. You can have a virtual visit to any place I went by zooming in on the below map.
I found a perfect spot to spend the following days until a stable weather window arrives.
I sailed past Cabo de Sao Vicente (Cape St. Vincent) which is the most south-western tip of Portugal.
Bank offices, a Jaguar car dealer, many breakfast bars and restaurants, but nowhere, nowhere to find a simple supermarket or mini-market!
I'm surrounded by another 40 sailing boats who all dropped their anchor and have a relaxed stay while exploring
I was astonished to feel warm air entering the windows at 6 o'clock in the morning, I could not believe the feel of its comfort.
Life is still good here in Matosinhos on this closing day of the summer season. I'm spending all my time outside these days
I walked on the most white beaches I experienced in my life.
I'm still at anchor before Santa Cristina beach located south-east of the city-centre of A Coruña
Two nights ago, I anchored in a protected aluminium harbour surrounded by hills full of trees.
I headed into the pitoresque town of Port Joinville (Ile d'Yeu) on this Sunday morning to buy food.
I stay where I am, on the beautiful and calm river and in the protection of the surrounding forests.
I spent the night at anchor and the Atlantic swell entering the bay made my night a horrible one
I arrived at Roscoff marina approaching the most western point of France, Camaret-sur-mer, known as a gathering place for sailors
I'm looking forward to anchor at Dixcart Bay located on the beautiful island Sark which is one of the five islands in the English channel
Saturday night, I anchored at sea in the protection of Cap d'Antifer and a long breakwater
After my return to the boat my only crew member informed me he's returning home, I can call myself a solo sailor now
Wind conditions are favorable, South/South-East. We leave early in the morning because stormy weather could occur in the evening.
