76. A Month On My Own

I’ve spent a month on my own. No, not in prison. Not in quarantine. Not even against my will. Sailing across the longest stretch of open water on the planet.

In the old days of personal computers there was a term called WYSIWYG. An acronym for What You See Is What You Get. Something that we probably took for granted a couple of generations ago. But with marketing techniques getting more sophisticated, we all too often find that reality doesn’t always live up to expectations.… Continue reading 75. WYSIWYG

I arrived here in Nuku Hiva two weeks ago. And I am sorry that it has taken me this long to provide you all with an update. Particularly since I went ‘missing’ during my passage and there was a Pan Pan and a Bolo issued on my behalf. In this post I will attempt to… Continue reading 74. Pan Pan Tomas

  1. Well congrats but dissapointed with the fishing after everything i tried to teach you looks like we will have to come to the carib to give you a refresher course on how to fish,not lose nets,how to put clicker on and drag settings !!! All the best amigo


    1. Thanks my friends. Your lessons were great. And we only dragged the line when we wanted fish. Happy to take a refresher class though. You are so welcome on Saoirse anytime. And I would love to teach you sailing. Would love to see you two as students rather than teachers! Take care of each other. You are truly a special couple. Tomas


  2. Hello there you all at the boat ,
    I, Hectors grandmother and Björn came here to SouthAfrika, 40 km from Cape Town, a week ago. We were looking for warm and sunny weather but not the 35 degrees we had the other day and next weekend it will be around 40!!.
    Such days we don’t spend at the golfcourse.
    However wheather change very quickly with some rainshowers announced tomorrow and around 26. Golfcompetition is at the schema.

    Today we have visited 3 vineyards, tested wine and had lunch. Wine is a very big industri here and most of the wines keep high standard.

    We follow your further aventures and are very glad for the beatiful photos. Hector I can still recognice you!!

    All the bests from us / Margarete and Björn

  4. He Tomas,
    Nu har jag äntligen fått kontakt med dig igen!
    Anders berättade för mig att du krockat med en stor våg.
    Hoppas du inte skadade dig.
    Och att du fått igång elen på båten.

    Ha det så bra!
    Vet inte om du fick inbjudan till vårat bröllop.
    Du är bjuden.
    Var rädd om dig vi ses
