We left La Palma two and a half weeks ago to continue our journey over the ocean to the Caribbean.
The wind is carrying us steadily more and more west, and as the miles pass everything get’s more and more into a nice and steady rhythm. The waves, the days and nights and the crew.
It feels good to have the loud and fast world behind us, and be alone in the middle of the ocean. Although it’s sometimes hard missing the loved people at home. But the sea is making us constantly nice surprises. We’re surrounded by the pure beauty and the sea feeds us with the best fishes and so we’re going on on our way to Grenada in best mode and atmosphere.
The best greetings to Nordlys Den Helder and my people at home.

The moon goes to sleep, the other watch also. We’re alone on deck with a very light breeze. We’re like an evolution […]
Paint and stain possible on this beautiful day. All sails are up, even the jib that the kids painted in Amsterdam. We sat her under the mainsail. We call it the ‘dolphin sail’. Some of the crew members enjoyed cooking yesterday while Soraia had a day off. Her pastas, oignons beignets, pizzas, lasagna and vegetables […]
Fingers grab the outer jib sheet … Are they mine? Hands feel the curiosity Of last year’s boson The mumbling drums of this refit And that refit Echoes of detachment sweat That rinsed all those backs Shaped all those minds Into a pale blue line Man, just had this crazy dream Was it mine? Boots […]
