Buy a house they said! It will be fun they said! Well let me tell ya what: It nearly killed us both. Thankfully we stumbled into a life-altering experience at sea that forced us to do some monumental changes in our lives. Here’s what happend.
As sailors, we always keep an eye on the boat market in Norway. Last weekend a spectacular boat was put on the market – a 72 foot full-scale, fully operational replica of the Oseberg ship, one of the most spectacular Viking ships in the world!
Sailing in Norway gives you access to some of the most spectacular and pristine places on earth. And since you sail, you also get these secluded, stunning places all to yourself. Come join us, and see for yourself!
After days of pure relaxation in Hardanger, we reluctantly started heading back south to our home base Stavanger. Join us on a journey filled with action, amazing food, and spectacular nature experiences!
With yet another incoming weather system, and with a very narrow weather window, it was time for us to head south again. Join us as we run before the storm to Hardanger in Part 3 of our 2021 journey.
Having a good plan is a great thing. Tossing them out the window is often even better. Join us on the second leg of our sail up along the magnificent Norwegian coast, and experience the brutal and dramatic scenery of Langøy!
Plans are nothing; planning is everything, said Dwight D Eisenhower back in the day. Nothing has rung quite as true the past year. Here’s how our plans for the second year in a row went to shit, but turned out magnificently regardless.
Today marks the one year anniversary for the Norwegian 2020 Covid lockdown. Our yacht was on the hard for a massive refit to get her ready to cross the Atlantic. And then everything went to shit.
What should have been a 14 month cruise from Norway to the Caribbean and back again turned out quite differently thanks to Covid. Now firmly on the right side of 2021, it was time to wrap up our journey!
In Part 1, we discussed the three pillars of condensation management; Heating, Insulation, and Ventilation. Now is the time for the practical implementation of these measures. Get ready for a shitload of pictures, a few surprises, facepalms and cursing…
Most production boats have notoriously poor ventilation and insulation. The result is a damp, mouldy and not very healthy, nor comfortable environment. They are hot when it’s warm, and freezing when it’s cold. Here’s how to get rid of the problems on a reasonable budget.
Designing a cockpit enclosure that protects you from the scorching tropical sun AND the bone chilling winds of the North Sea, but ALSO lets you trim your sails with ease is no small feat. Here’s how we designed ours.
