Rather than have a big, heavy, bulky set of 8 Trogan 6v  batteries below, solar panels let you recharge each day's usage. Of course the boat needs to be carefully ballanced with efficient refridgeration (if ever there was one) , lighting, radar, etc. Then the battery bank can be chosen to fullfill this daily need with 1.5 * the days of amphours(extra 50% for losses, sun, angle,etc) read more

There is a short period (usually missed) in the morning, from sunrise until about 8am, and then a glorious hour from 5pm til 6pm - whenever possible enhanced with a cold beer - when conditions are great but the rest of the time - other then when in the water - it is a struggle to summon up the energy to move.

I started up the engine at nightfall, and Chris attempted to sleep through the racket, as I sipped coffee and steered into the shore lights of Samoa. Everything happens slowly at sea, especially when it comes to making landfall. When in the deep ocean I have the odd sensation of feeling very safe, yet carry a deep underlying fear at the same time. Near land, my fear turns into pure anxiety and practicality – suddenly there…

With good wind and several hours of daylight left, we decided to meander around the corner and see what the anchorage looked like.

The iPhone or iPad is then tricked into connecting to the hacked server, which unlocks the gadget. Team DoulCi promises to have built the system “with love” for people who have recovered their lost or stolen iDevice, in a effort to regain access to contacts, e-mail, notes, and more. But, as the SecurityWatch pointed out, that’s probably not this hack will be used. A cursory…

    In skiffs and catamarans, finding the strongest wind pressure is generally the biggest priority downwind, says multiple skiff champion Chris Nicholson. Knowing where to look for it, though, can be pretty tricky because you're often travelling faster than the breeze...
  • Bart Simpson Interview - Part 2

    18 Sep 2014 | 7:57 pm
    By the end of 2002, Bart’s sailing and his results had gone downhill. “I ended up trying to beat Ben rather than trying to sail my best.” He took himself to a psychologist. “I wasn’t thinking the right things. He taught me to refocus on sailing the best you can rather than trying to beat anyone else. He helped get my brain back on track, and I made some steps forwards, focusing on improving my own performance rather than worrying about anyone else.”

    Ahoy,I depart shortly for the 21st Annual Baja Haha.  I will be joining a boat for the voyage from San Diego to Cabo.  We start on Monday and arrive in Cabo 10 days later.  There are 170 boats and 600 folks which is a very large group.  Our first leg is 325 miles to Turtle Bay.  A small fishing village in the middle of no where.  We will have baseball game with the locals on the first afternoon and a beach party on the second day.  Then a 250 mile run to Santa Maria Bay for another beach party with a band.  Another 24 hours and we will be in Cabo San…

    We are on Mission Bay in San  Diego for the weekend.  There are several boat rental spots nearby.  One boat had no clue how to sail the boat.  They would tack and did not know you need to get the jib to leeward and they kept crashing into the rocky shore.  I ran out to advise them to release the jib sheet when you tack and secure on leeward.  They finally got it.  Also, we visited the wild animal park and went on safari and hand fed a white rhino.  Amazing.

    The wind was up and all seemed well until I got a ways out to sea. From that point it was apparent that the wind was going to continue from the north making it clear to me that I could only sail north west close hauled. After a couple hours I got about five miles out and then the wind promptly stopped! So much for getting anywhere today. I watched the sun go down and then darkness came on. I could do nothing but take the sails down and wait for the wind. But there was nothing but sheer calm all night!I took notice of all the land sights and lights around me. Tonight I decided…

All went dark in my mind and then I woke up about 15 minutes later to adjust the tiller slightly as the sails were making noise and the boat was slightly off course."Many hours earlier however, I had been on a mission to sail into Mission Bay by evening time. But the wind had almost died and the current was against me. Besides this I didn't have an engine so that put me at the complete mercy of the wind.Here's what happened: I was constantly watching the wind…

    "...Darkness had almost taken over the sky and yet the wind was as sure as ever. In fact with all the attention I gave the boat and with the good steady wind, I felt like I was cruising along at six knots! I could feel the wind in my face and I felt the exhilaration of speeding along with waves breaking white on either side of the boat."  This was the highlight of sailing and passing La Jolla in the evening. But before I had reached San Diego and was only half way down, this is the situation I faced:I had let the boat sail herself most of the night. Having tied down the tiller I just…

    That evening as I rowed my dinghy over the teal green sea I enjoyed looking down, down into its clear mysterious depths. I slowly arrived back at my boat. As I climbed up over the four foot sides of the boat, and then proceeded to set my things down in the cockpit, I looked out to sea just in time to see a glorious sunset. I looked up at my pirate flag and saw the wind blowing it steadily and so having had lots of rest during the day, I decided that with the wind being strong and myself feeling well, I would venture out tonight for San Diego. As I got some food from a tin ready to eat, my…

I had no desire to sail further to San Diego today and besides there were things I needed to complete before I left. My day started early at 5:30 am. I awoke, got myself ready and then set the jib sail and texted Janette as I awoke to the most glorious sunrise:Albie: "Oh my gosh!

    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…

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…

    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:…

However, with the Caribbean trade winds today coming off island, to describe the breeze as ‘steady’ on the North Sound would have been totally inappropriate. Throughout the morning there were huge puffs, significant voids, and enough wind shifts to continually shake up the fleet of matched IC24s. Many of the guests of BEYC who were crewing for pro skippers had never heard the term…

    (October 30, 2014; Day 20) – The Volvo Ocean Race attracts sailors eager for the challenges of offshore racing, and perhaps seeking an alternative to boat-on-boat buoy racing. But for the crews in this edition, they better appreciate both sides of the coin. “The shock of how close this one-design racing is has worn off,” admitted Matt Knighton onboard Abu Dhabi. “After the earlier battle down the African coast, it’s not surprising to see one or even two sails keeping pace with you for a very, very long time.” The leaders today have halted their eastern progress, with…

With the imposition of the Ice Gate at 42 degrees south, the eastern teams (Donfeng, Brunel, Vestas Wind and Abu Dhabi) are likely to head South East towards the top of the ‘Ice Gate’ and follow…

    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…

    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…
