    Estimated 37 days a to z

    at least we can see Madeira on the map and the forecasts at this latitude is good for the forseeable future

    I am still hoping that one of you in the northern hemisfere, that can speak the language, will just phone these numbers and say hello to whoever answers the phone.

    please someone just try ;)
    tell them we are the Boat Design.net support TEAM
    and we are hungry for ANY little bit if information
    think about it - one day maybe he reads all this stuff - one day maybe you meet him - jeez wont that be fantastic
    so if you understand and speak it - phone!

    bye bye boys AND girlzzz ;)

    pic 1 = the boat if built in epoxy would be a very nice boat for now

    pic 2 = the young man we all wished we were ;)

    pic 3 = really very smart and very creative lifeline :p

    and if you REALLY want to understand you have to read it all :!:

    From "Born on the Windward side - - posted: May 12, 2008"

    "That judgement went for its skipper as well. I had long hair before it had become fashionable sandals without socks, and on cold rainy days I wore my grandfather’s long overcoat which showed some of the action it had been through when I had used it as a home in France." :D

    Well he is going good and the winds are much better where he is now further south.
    460 nm to go - could be another 14 days = total approx 37 days = 32 nm per day :eek:

    all the regulars of the "Sven" page
    Angel
    Yes
    and everybody else also

    what boats do you have or sail or building or planing or what ever :confused:

    I would love to know what inspires your small boat interest ?

    my build is inspired by Sven Irvind, Roger Taylor, Rory McDougal :D

    I have a Dynamite Payson/Phil Bolger Windsprint, but local lake sailing only.

    I was going to build a hovercraft for the small "river" behind my house. Nearly all the fiberglass builds on the net were about boats, which led me to read Slocum, which led to reading everything I could on small boat building and adventures. So I built the Windsprint instead.

    I've given up the fantasy of building a small boat and sailing around the world, but I still hope to one day sail over to the Bahamas in a small boat - home built or bought, but preferably home built.
    It's just something different to do...

    Like many others have said before, it's most likely a result of mental issues.:)

    Fantastic
    he is about 15 nm off the coast
    approx 11h00 his time
    calm weather
    I can only assume that he will heave too for the night and enter tommorow morning
