09.07: We`re back and ready for Transpack! This time on Nådeløs, which in fact is our good old Cubaneren that we sold to Ian in San Francisco after our long-distance cruise which ended 2 years ago after the last Transpac. In other words, Maren and Karl Otto are this time crew, as also Veronica Schølgl. The captain on board is Ian Ferguson.
It has, as it always is with the big offshore races, been a lot of preparations to do, but we should be all set now with the start coming up tomorrow.
The blog platform from our cruise 2 years ago is still «floating» so we will use that also this time to describe how life on the ocean is on the way towards Hawaii (or more correctly Oahu and Honolulu).
For you who followed us last time, and maybe want to do so this time too, you know that our internet connection is more or less equal in speed to how it was in 1988. For new followers; you may (if we are lucky) have a chance to send us bottle-posts that bounces effectively out in space before it will find us hopefully on the blue surface.
More information about ourselves, our competitors and other more or less useful stuff is coming up!
