Yepp, no question I have deserved a cold one now! My god how I have been missing chilling on my "terrace" and feel the sunshine warming ☀️🌴🐬⛵️⚓️ Cleaned T/T Be Free and she looks smashing don't you agree? Used fender cleaning solution wich realy did the work on the plastic band around the dinghy. the solution for the tubes did not clean the "fender" around her.

A very charming tiny port between the rough rocky coast of Mallorca. As expected here menus are in Getman, also signs, window adds and so on... Its like a German "slafen dorf" 😝 Enshuldung for my German friends😅 Still a kozy place and I'm so happy to stay on a mooring ball the next two days as it's gonna be windy and I guess it will be massive swells here. The osean outside goes from 1000 meters to only 15-30 meters and shallow plateu around. I will sleep better on a mooring than anchour with this forecast, and definatly better than stern in to the pier if I'm right about my guessing for tomorrow. However it is super expensive moorings... €42  pr night😳 ..

Hello Spain 😊 After almost 300NM non-stop solo sailing from Italy it feels good to be ready for a calm night with continius sleep. Already filled up with diesel and are now hanging on a mooring ball. Lost my new iPhone in the ocean so Thats the reason for lack of updates. Got a new sim card with data, and old phone as backup. So Hello world, and Hello Spain😎☀️⛵️🐬 Its siesta time .

Let the upgrade begin👌🏻 Main sail trimming ropes upgrade from 11mm to 14mm😅 2 x 24 meter. Hardware wheels and locks to the new generation @harken_inc because Selden is not strong enough! Tired of changing selden wheels!! 3 times on 3 months! Now bigger stronger and rebuilding so it can handle strong winds without jamming. I enjoy sailing in rough conditions but the selden hardware and me are not on the same page🤣(see last picture to understand what I mean about Selden) Sailing from Sicily to Sardinia has become an expencive experience because of stress to hardware, sail and ropes. Bavaria performed outstanding in 50+ kts but they should put a bit extra on the hardware. Price tag on this upgrade? Don’t ask😱😅

It is autumn and rainy days.. Today’s best buy I belive is my new dehumidifier 🙏🏻 My boat is dry but with hatch open its difficult to awoid humidity inside. Even with ventilation running. Starting the webasto would work, but its to hot already🤣 So €129 for having the luxury of dry sheets normal people take for granted I think is a very cheap and good investment. And offcource new sound system is also carried onboard🤣 Did not manage to get big enough hw for my rigg but I have spare parts. So until I find a shop not closed for the season it will have to work!
It’s time to sail west ☀️⛵️🐬🌴 .

Does anyone know about a #selden @selden_mast hardware dealer in #olbia #sardinia? After #sailing hard in wind 35-50 kts for 1000nm some of my HW was not performing perfect. I would like to upgrade and change before leaving #sardinia  and reach out to the IG #sailingcommunity #rigging #sailloft #italy
