ONE WEEK to Prepare for 16 Days at Sea (Atlantic Crossing)

22. feb.. 2021
526 044 Ganger

#291 Join us as we sail down from Madeira to Tenerife. Jack and Andre join us on board to prepare for the Atlantic crossing back to the warm weather, clear water and fish galore. We're excited but there's lots to do before the boys were ready to go. I (Elayna) was more than happy to sit this one out. Pregnant, seasickness, toddler, I'm sure you understand - haha!
6 years ago we crossed the Atlantic with Jack. If you'd like to revisit it, you can watch it here:
Crazy to think how much has changed since then. Jack has gone from having never sailed to sailing obsessed. Having just introduced him to paragliding, I can foresee a new obsession on the horizon.

  • Hey! I am proud that you have finally visited my island. 🗻 I trust you had a very happy stay on this land. I especially loved that tender and hopeful scene (13:40) through the innocent and amazed eyes of the 'big brother'. 😇 😊 🥰 🥰 Best of health and good luck to all of you and your families! 😘 👋👋

  • You can use vinegar to clean metals and surfaces and any thing really. For the clicker you just need to deep it into a bowel of vinegar for about an hour (or less) and every some time take it out and rub it to clean the rust away. It should be clean as new. Hope that helps in the future.

  • Can you say where you got the scan? That’s my parents business and I think it’s ungrateful to tell where it is and how it’s called. So I will say it myself: it’s called Ginefem and it’s at Santacruz de Tenerife. Street: Pi y Margall. One of the best doctors around the island.

  • You need 2 ,6 inch L brackets one on each side of the vertical board and run bolts through it and bolts on both sides of the horizontal peice and use lock washers that will hold it tight but run the bolts on the vertical peice through both L brackets add sandwich the vertical piece in between them

    geograph1000geograph10002 måneder siden
  • Im sure you guys have lots of people offering advice, forgive me. On the winches i use grease on the bearing and gear surfaces, and 90wt gear oil on the pawls. The viscosity of the grease determines how easy it is to freewheel, and oil base grease seems to last longer around salt water. "Lewmar" winch grease is popular around here and is a great choice over synthetics, but grease on the pawls can make them stick resulting in the winch jumping. It is absolutely possible to overtighten the steering cables, resulting in undue wear and friction. That crack could have come from the boat getting pushed backwards by a passing wave (like when you're hove-to or reefing), and doesn't mean the boat is the least bit unreliable or poorly engineered as some have speculated. If you could possibly end-for-end your main halyard it will help the block twisting a bit, but the twists that are in the halyard now are not going to magically disappear as they have been "load-set". It looks like your VHF whip is missing from the coil at the masthead, it will work a lot better if you put an antenna at the top end of the co-ax. 3db should be fine on a multihull where the antenna is mostly going to be perpendicular to the horizon. I do not personally think it is irresponsible to sail to Antigua alone, but before leaving I would have a written checklist for the day you arrive because you're going to be pretty punchy. Anchoring up in Falmouth would be a lot easier under those circumstances than trying to manoueuvre around English Harbor, for example, when you're not at optimum. At least half of the deliveries I've done were alone; it's not a hairball concept. Best of luck on your passage, i am always so impressed with your abilities. Thank you.

  • I don't know what the delay is from real time to your Monday posts, but if Y'all are still on Tenerife, look up an awesome lady, Sheila Collis in La Tierra del Trigo. She is a good friend of mine and the former Editor of Island Connections, as far as I am aware, the largest English Newspaper in the Canaries. I wish I hadn't fallen behind on watching your posts, I caught up tonight. Wish I could have sent that info to you guys sooner.
