    Hit the '<<' full map button above the text part on the 'Spot Map', hit enlarge on my own screen till the map filled the screen, used the + and - buttons and drag function on the 'Spot Map', and took a screenshot which just provide an image and no data and unfortunatly no line of the planned course (which would be nice to have on the Spot Map). The data in the quote was copied from the text part of the 'Spot Map'.

    Cheers,
    Angel

    Yrvind is a perfectionist, so when he says a boat is not right, I think he means that there is still room for improvement or, that a different boat would be better for a particular mission.

    I would go sailing with him anywhere on the planet in anything he deemed appropriate! (So long as he was still in good health and not going on his last trip to "check out"). A self taught man with alot of experience and more guts to achieve what most men who sail might call impossible.

    That Paradox on steroids is what got me motivated to try it all again!

    Any endevor undertaken with only conventional thinking will not yield much more than a convention mondane outcome at the very best.

    I like your previous pictures better as they show a broader view and a line of the planned course. Enlargement of the Spot Map is only good to see very short time development.

    So please keep your originals comming up :) - - (as I'm to lazy for that :p)

    Cheers,

    This crossed my mind when I typed a PS on post#60 . . . . . . but have no indications for that there.

    Here's a very sad "check out" . . .

    Well... no cheers now :(

    Well, we all get old you know. Seems I remember your englishman lost during that race. I was just getting into boats then and sailing in local lakes with a girl friend.

    Seems I read that Yrvind had a rutter break at one time and that was the reasoning for that design, bulked up at its weakest point. The operation is in his video at his site.

    Matt mentioned too that the twin keel set up on the beach.

    After posting that above about going with him anywhere, I had to snicker at myself as most anyone would love to go with him, but I doubt he would take me! LOL

    Are there any more updates?

    Hi folks

    I will post a new map this evening when I have the last position for the day.

    Anyway just for you folks that enjoy this small boat "thing"

    This is the saddest story of all time of a beautifully built boat that went on the rocks on it's maiden voyage

    the build

    It is around 15h00 by me and around noon by Sven
    not looking good today, he is basically been blown backwards and sideways
    the wind forcasts are lousy for the next WEEK :mad:
    and still he is only around the halfway mark?

    Todays Ugrib show favourable winds ??
    for the next couple of days ?
    but only 70 nm in 4 days? as the crow flies.
    with all the backwards and sideways its probably three times more

    The Sweds and their boats

    I'm almost sure that most of you don't understand the lingo....but I bet many of you will like the pictures of the boats. The Swedes are such a wonderful people.

    Here is a Swedish TV program called "Boat-crazy" (Båttokig):

    http://svtplay.se/v/2514718/battokig/battokig

    I hope some of you will enjoy watching it.

    Yes beautifull old traditional boats in that video, stunning.

    Yes can you please see if you can phone these 2 phone numbers of Sven

    I would love to know that we will get info from Sven when he arrives in Madeira.
    It will be really nice if we can learn more about the boat's performance details, what works and what is not so good
    and of course the WATER issue

    Yes I take it that you understand Swedish??

    Those numbers should work for you unless he has shut down the phone temporarily, while on his sailing journey, in order to save money.

    Both those numbers are registered:

    http://gulasidorna.eniro.se/hitta:049021530

    http://personer.eniro.se/resultat/0706200550

    You only have to add the "out of your country number"(+) to the numbers below:

    Cell phone +46 70 620 05 50
    Home +46 490 2 15 30 a good time is in the evening. 20-22 Swedish time

    Just started reading ‘‘My Life’’, some bits look familiar to me, think I've read some of it once in one of his magazine articles or heard in interviews, but it's very nice to read and has a lot new info and details for me and as a story very well writen, it could go into a book right away . . :)

    Sven Yrvind - My Life - - texts archived in June 2008 - May 2008

    (dates above the articles are the dates they were posted, not when it happened)

    Alas these archives seems to be not completely chronological ranked yet*, which would be nice for the book, but just started to read, I'll save the rest for the weekend . . . . . . .

    If anyone ever speaks to Sven, please thank him from me for those stories :)

    That small pension, well a part of it seems to be for free on his website . . . .

    Cheers,
    Angel

    PS

    * Oh :eek: I see, that's fixed when read in order of posting dates...
