Re: Boatbuilding Girls - Do You Want to Join ?

Newsletter January 2017

Dear all,

As we enter 2017 sailing the farm wants to wish all our friends a
sincerely happy new year.

2016 was a big change for our project- it was the year of sailing, not
just boatbuilding and farming.

Sofar we have sailed more than 2000 nautical miles from Oslo to the
Canary Islands.

been more than 30 pepole onboard in 2016. Hailed from all over the
world. It has been a joy to sail with all of you and we hope to see
some of you salty crew back for more fun and seasickness in 2017 :-)

We are slowly starting to know this metal lady and she seems more
happy in stronger winds. Her fastest speed is 8.7 knots. She hates
headwind and doesent like tacking very much. (as matter of fact she
tacks like a pregnant whale on a bad day) floats like a duck in big
waves and feel extremely safe in rough weather.

For 2017 we hope to continue explore our fantastic planet, share and
learn new skills and also get scuba diving and compressor onboad to
explore our underwater world.

Our next big leg will be from Canary to South America or West Indies
then onwards into pacific. If you want to join please send us an
email. We always look for nice people staying long term onboard to run
the project forward.

And again, we wish you all fair winds and happy 2017.

Re: Boatbuilding Girls - Do You Want to Join ?

We are now in Salvador Brazil on 12 degrees south after 21 days of pleasant crossing from cape verde.

As on old sailing ship crossing equator line Neptune came onboard to baptist the crew, thankfully she didn't use tar and feather as in old days so it was pretty easy to clean off the barber foam, then they was eligible to have a anchor tattoo with name of their loved ones. Some had problem remember their boyfriends name for a second it seems
Rest of journey from 0 degree to 12 degrees south was with a couple of days of calm weather until we hit the easterly wind on the south side and then straight for Salvador.
Salvador was discovered in 1501 and soon became the main trade route for Portugal and a slave trade port. I'm curious the route they sailed empty back to Africa to get more slaves. Going straight east is hard so they might go south to catch the westerly wind down there. Portugal had some 30.000 voyages shipping more than 4.5 million slaves between Africa and Brazil.

Anyway our plan is going south into colder climate again. Hopefully all way down the south American continent before we have to decide if we want to explore African side or west side of south America (if wind and weather permits) .

If you want to join please send us an email.
