Some plans about New Caledonia. Some plans about Antarctic.
Repeat again Canada or Greenland. Don't know yet.

We need to collect people and money for the next trip.

Re: Cape Horn 2013 on inflatable catamaran Ducky 19

Were you able to set up your tent in those winds?

Did you sleep on shore every night, or did you sometimes sleep on the boat?

Sailing through Terra del Fuego to French Polynesia would be a real adventure; southern most tip of South America. It was a challenge for captain Bligh. Mauritz

I did reinforcing of Coleman Alaska tent - from this - Ducky • to this - Ducky •

see latest pictures on this page.

This reinforcing worked very well.
Main poles have 16 mm diameters, and was added 3 poles more than in original variants. Floor in internal tents was replaced to silicone fabric.

Connection between poles and tents was done by elastic ropes for adsorb hard wind hits. Etc. Two weeks evenings on sewing machine.

On boat we slept only one night. In all other was enough place on shore.

Cooked it has very neutral taste. Everything depends of additions.

Dried variant of this possible to buy in local stores. My recommendation is to chop it on inch size and add in soup in the last 2-3 minutes before end cooking.

Also it's very taste in raw ( IMHO), but must be fresh. After 1-2 hours they lost their fresh taste.

Re:Testing toxins in mussels in Cape Horn area

Big thanks for firm Jellett. We use rapid tests to recognize eatable shellfish.
We've fount that only one place from 5 tested had shellfishes without toxins.
We cooked end eat shellfishes without any consequence for our health.
We've also found that conic mussels had less toxins than other species.
We hope this information will be useful for sailing community.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shellfish_poisoning

• lipophilic toxins (LTs), including those responsible for diarrheic shellfish poisoning (DSP)
• amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP) toxins
• paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) toxins.
