|Erika was the hero!|
As we had no autopilot the last three days somebody was tied to the wheel when we had no wind. (Otherwise we do have backup with a windvane).
It was very cold sitting by the wheel, so we needed to change every 2 hours.
Here Erika is steering to keep the boat according to waypoint
Next day it got a little warmer and the "autopilot" Erika got some bribes to take
the wheel... the box is normally something we only open on Saturdays.
She is listening to the program "På minuten" that she loves , Andreas is connected to the same
ipod and tries to understand...
Those of you that know all about sailing will look at the background and say that the windwane s actually working
and not only that, why is some of the red cloth loose?
The wind was not strong enough to to make it steer other than brief moments, the red cloth is all a mess and
really looks like it has been through a storm (it has been through a lot of weather I guess).
But we have a new one...
