This is what cruising life is about, sharing and caring. No shore power so my neighbour from Holland gets 220v from s/y Be Free, and the NZ sailors get water from the one and only waterpost by using all water hose that everyone has all conected together👌🏻

Trying to avoid the sun while it’s to hot☀️☀️☀️ I have done some boatwork an maintaince today, and also had an expert onbard calculating my future need of power to run all the equipment. He will bring a guy tomorrow measuring and finding out how to build a frame for solarpanels. So Hopefully s/Y Be Free is more green in power consuption.

Luckly the wind came down this early morning and direction was also to my favour. I had to manually take up my heavy Anchor and almost 40m of chain. And this goes quite slow and therefore having a wind direction drifting me out of the bay was good timing. So I guess todays workout is done👌🏻 Anyway made som videos tonight where I explaine how I prepaired for the worst and my strategy to solve any problems If wind picked up more. Worst case scenario would be dragging without a windlass in strong windgusts and close to a beach. So I needed a strategy ready if so happend, wich Luckly it did not. My experience is if you plan for the worst and are prepaired you would not need to put it to work. Something like Murphys law🤣 I guess this will be a good and informativ few minutes in a future YouTube episode.

It’s not always sunshine and sweet sunsets.... (se next photo) Have been strugling a bit with the windlass Lovfranse PX3 and this adds a extra dimensjon to the already chalange of sailing a 17meter yacht solo.  I can not find out Whats wrong. Sometimes it works, Sometimes not. So if I can’t get it working again it will be manuell hard labour to get all the chain and heawy Anchor onboard.  Then I will need to find a place to go where she can be placed either alongside or with Lazy lines and a mooring. The Main fuse looks Okay but I have found out that there is no power where the cable is conected to the handheld controller. So then it leads into a question, is it the relé or electric panel to blame as everything else is checked. To be continued #sailingsolo #troubleinparadise #diy #lofrans
Breakfast time on s/y Be Free 😍⛵️☀️🌴🐬 A good breakfast gives a good start for the day
