Circumnavigation # 2

Haparanda KopieALL THE WAY AROUND … WHAT?
Haparanda: remote, mysterious, alluring… and located at the very top of the Baltic, so best enjoyed with the aid of some friendly sunshine. It’s really all about the journey, as every wise mariner knows, but even so some people need guaranteed sun and warmth to get them out of their bunk and for them a tour of the Med might be more appropriate (although a better relationship with the sun does come at the price of a trickier relationship with the wind, which tends in these lower latitudes to come in just the two sizes: too little and too much). But then every silver lining has its cloud, of course, and with that in mind I would now like to cast a critical eye over the routing options…. continue

Circumnavigation # 1

IMG_2772 KopieHIGHS, LOWS and MYTHS
Few utterances stir the soul and spirit of a sailor like the word “circumnavigation”, the visible tip of a vast iceberg mighty enough in the mind of most seafaring folk to change careers, restructure financial priorities and fuel any number of dreams (or nightmares, as the case may be). continue

Windpilot – back to our Roots

Lilofee BesanstagWINDPILOT – OUR ENGLISH ROOTS
The history of Windpilot since the company changed hands in 1976 is quite well-known, largely because of the unusual nature of the transaction: a straight swap, agreed on the spur of the moment while sailing, of a substantial sailing yacht for the contents of a dark workshop by some stables in the woods 25 miles or so from Hamburg. Nobody could quite believe it – me included! My wife did believe it though. And she didn’t like it. I was inspired by the possibilities, she fearful of the new uncertainty. The ensuing discussion opened more cans of worms than we could ever have hoped to close and the inevitable happened. Sometimes in life a nudge to the established order is all it takes to shake loose the veneer of normality and reveal the unstoppable momentum for change acting beneath. We find ourselves recognising what’s happening, why it’s happening and the inevitability of it happening all in the same short thought process. continue here
