Photo story of my Atlantic crossing

Hello all,
I hope this is the right section where to post this.
I recently uploaded two (out of total six) galleries with photos and videos about a recent crossing from Dom.Republic to France via Bermudas/Azores been made with a rusty 30feet made in Holland in 1962.

I was skipper, not owner.

Here is the link
Odysseus'oar | Sea and about
Click on the square icons on top of the post to access the gallery.
Sorry, captions on the pictures are in Italian.

Hope you like it
Comments are appreciated!

Re: Photo story of my Atlantic crossing

Very nice story alltogether. Rusty she might be but seems to me quite a sturdy boat. Was this just a delivery job?

Re: Photo story of my Atlantic crossing

Yes it was.

Thanks. I am sorry that captions are in Italian. I choosed my native language because in this moment the blog is having good visibility in Italy. Introductions to galleries are double language but as soon as I'll start blogging from the field I will go back to the full English formula.

Keep following if you'd like!

Re: Photo story of my Atlantic crossing

I will do. I am a solosailor myself. So I like these stories. I speak French and with a bit of deduction I can read the main lines.

Good exercise, trying to go out of the safe rails of English sometimes

Google Chrome translates it for me...


And I attached a Translator to my own Website that will translate into over 80 Languages...

If you copy & paste this above - it will install a translator...
