SilentWind wind generator

It took a while, had to correct for faulty measurements, but now it is up and running! Attempt 1: After mounting the blades: Some crew members care less than others:

Swimming platform…

We finally got to try and rig the swimming platform: Appeared to be real easy. We think it is beautiful! Well done Jongert Yacht!

Gibraltar continued….

And then just before Gibraltar the wind picked up and my wish to sail rather than motor past Gibraltar came true! Unfortunately not for long, but long enough! Now we are enjoying tapas with a view on the Moroccan mountains in tiny Barbate.

Gibraltar in sight!

After a beautiful day and mostly quite night of motoring (weather guys where was the wind you promised?) we now have Gibraltar ahead of us!

On our way to Sotogrande…

Another beautiful day at sea. Unfortunately no wind worth mentioning even though all weather forecasts promised us a nice easterly wind of 10-15 kn. So motoring all the way.
