Re: Single-handed sailor Guido

Hi Guido,

Very good. Perhaps the introduction is a bit long for those of us who eagerly watch every vid. But then again it's easy to skip past it.

What brand of wind generator is it that you put up? It looks an odd shape.

and what size battery bank do you have? What sort of batteries, wet or gel?

RC

Re: Single-handed sailor Guido

Hi Guido,
Thanks you have published your adventure.

I like very much your videos, and yesterday i opened a thread in our spanish sailboat's forum.

This is the link:

Travesías Cruce del Atlántico ida y vuenta en Bavaria 32 Holiday - La Taberna del Puerto

I am very interested to know how went the comeback from Caribean.
I´m preparing a similar adventure like your .

Thanks you

Re: Single-handed sailor Guido

Wind generator is an Eclectic Energy D400. Not sure if this is their homepage:

The D400 micro wind turbine

eta: it does look like it is.
