Nasty, nasty weather in the Tuamutos

  It is Saturday morning and Vinni and I had planned on hoisting our anchor and sailing to the Tuamutos Atolls today. We have provisioned the boat and made Capri ready for sea (it is a four day passage to the Tuamutos). Yesterday we checked the weather forecasts and while the sailing conditions for the…

How do we get back to Denmark?

  All roads lead to Rome – says the old expression. We’re now almost in the middle of the Pacific and are beginning to think about what we are going to do from here. We live by the motto: “We have no plan and by God we’re going to stick to it!” Despite that motto,…
