    OPTI WORLDS – Yesterday started the first races of the Opti World Championship. The weather prediction was right: 15Knots of regular North wind  There was lots of current that was positive for the argentinian Dante Cittadini who is first in the final results of this day. The argentinian race area is very challenging for many foreign countries because there is not so many places in the world that have this conditions of current, wind, and special chop. It is important to know how to move your body to make the boat pass the waves. Calculating the current is pretty hard. It was Dante from…

    VOR – What are the Doldrums exactly? The intertropical Convergence Zone, an equatorial nightmare, an area of “clouds, rain and crappy weather,” explains Gerd-Jan Poortman. And the Team Brunel sailor has a rare way of explaining it, too! VOR UPDATE – Abu Dhabi and Team Brunel are still leading the pack with a close match race in the works.

  • Back in the PNW

    PacificSailors
    19 Oct 2014 | 5:42 pm
    We’ve been back in the lower 48, in Seattle to be exact, for nearly a month. The weather has been reminiscent of being in San Diego. We lived in the PNW long enough to know that this is not normal and are enjoying every minute of the sunshine. I took the photo above on a bike ride through the Snoqualmie Valley. We already experienced the fall colors up in Alaska and get do it all over again down here. A few days ago I went with Mike to fuel up the work boat on the other side of Elliott Bay – the bay that is surrounded by the city of Seattle.  Mount Rainier was visible in all…

    It finally stopped raining the day we had to leave Petersburg but not before Mike got in just a little more Alaska fishing.We drove aboard the M/V Taku for another overnight passage.Our room even had an opening window right on the “promenade deck.”Navigating the Wrangell Narrows is not something I would want to do with a 350 foot ship! Just look at all those nav-aids!The next morning we arrived in Prince Rupert, Canada. So far we had driven 800 miles from Anchorage to Haines, taken the ferry to Petersburg, and after arriving in Canada it’s still another 1,000 miles to…
  • Heading South :: Haines to Juneau to Petersburg

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:29 pm
    Before leaving Haines we headed back down to the river to take a few more photos of bald eagles and to hopefully get another glimpse of the brown bear (aka grizzly) that had been hanging around. Watch the video at the end of the last post! Since there are no roads to connect most of Southeast Alaska, we boarded the M/V Malaspina to take a trip down the Alaska Marine Highway.  When we came up here, back in March, we made one long ferry-trip from Bellingham to Haines that took three days. This time we are dividing the journey into several shorter trips with 2-3 days at each…

    15 Sep 2014 | 10:59 pm
    We left Anchorage on Saturday and drove the 700 miles to Haines in three, slow-paced days. The timing was perfect for the fall foliage and we couldn’t have asked for better weather – that was until we arrived in Southeast Alaska. Since we crossed the border from Canada back into the US and into the Alaska panhandle it has been pretty standard Southeast AK rain. But it is amazingly beautiful nonetheless and still my favorite part of Alaska (Mike favors South-Central.) Just a couple of hours outside of Anchorage is the Matanuska Glacier.Here is a fact I learned in our Milepost:…
  • Trail of Blue Ice and New Mini Van Bed

    Last weekend we went for a bike ride along the Trail of Blue Ice in the Portage Valley. The glaciers seem really vivid this time of year, probably because most of the snow that covered the ice has melted.It’s almost time to head back south so we are getting the van ready. Picked up these bike racks to transport our bikes… …and built a new bed for the van.  Here are photos of how we used to have the bed setup. Coming up here we didn’t have a bed in the van at all since we didn’t have time for a lot of stops. On our way back south we want to take…

    (October 22, 2014; Day ) – As the Volvo Ocean Race teams woke up this morning on the first leg of the race from Alicante to Cape Town, Abu Dhabi was in the lead with a fleet spread of 170 nm, the wind speed differing across the fleet from 6 knots down to nothing, from an average direction of 60º. Maybe west was best after all, at least it was for Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing and Team Brunel, who stuck together (just 45nm apart in fact), as they took the western approach into the Doldrums. It was a choice made way back even before the Cape Verde Islands, and one that Ian Walker was very…

    It would be difficult to say that anyone could ever actually get tired of sailing in the British Virgin Islands- those short passages and beautiful islands are wonderful to return to year after year. But, perhaps you’d like to try something new; to get off the beaten track. For this there is St. Vincent. If you’ve heard that it’s a beautiful place for sailing you can be sure that the rumors are true- this southern Caribbean paradise is a bit less travelled but offers much in the way of excitement and adventure. It’s a great area to go and get away from it all. Here you can enjoy the…

    12 Aug 2014 | 8:05 am
    One of the great joys of a sailing charter in the Caribbean is the chance to just ‘be’; to focus on sailing from port to port, watch the sunrises and sunset on deck and maybe stop off for a drink at an oceanfront bar. If you want to return home feeling refreshed, there’s no reason for a rigid itinerary or cramming too much into the trip. That being said, you may want to get to know a bit more than the shorelines of each island. You may be accompanied by active teens or even a shopaholic or two. Here is our list of the best things to do in the Caribbean – there’s a little…
