Thanks for kind welcome, moderator!

Yes, we'll be doing the 2010 ARC as the "start" of our circumnavigation. Hope to meet you over there :-)

Hi,

If your boat is already on the water make sure the genset (if installed by the factory) is properly serviceable. We had plenty of problem with this and had to 'modify' the builders' job a bit.

Nice boat to attempt a circumnav - you will be able to access some places others will not!

Thanks for the tip, b.

Yes, we will be going for the Antarctic (skiing a little :-) as well as maybe Greenland on the way home. We will then have 4 capes in our log (Horn, Good Hope, Finisterre and Farewell) :-)

Sounds like fun

We will be crossing the atlantic too, probably a week or 2 after the ARC

I am sure we will bump into you somewhere

Read the blog and got a few smiles and chuckles with the crew intro. Laughing at the start is a good thing. The vessel looks quite nice. We'll be looking for you at the dock after the ARC.
