Tatt av vinden has now, since new, sailed about 29,500 nm. In our first cruising adventure in 2008-2009 we covered 13,000 nm. From Oslo to New Zealand, 2013-2018, we have sailed 14,600 nm. The longest crossing was from Santa Cruz to Fatuhiva, just more than 3,000 nm. Crossing the Atlantic from Las Palmas to St. Lucia was 2,900 nm. We experienced no really hard winds, even if they sometimes were fresh enough.
The next leg will be in March 2019, from Whangarei to Auckland. After that, Southampton to Blommenholm, Oslo.
We shall post more pictures and videos, but it may take two or three weeks before we are able to do so. We shall also tell about the equipement that failed, and what did not. That may be interesting for other yachties.
We shall also sum up our impressions and experiences about cruising the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. So check in from time to time.

Tomorrow Tatt av vinden will be hauled out and placed on the hard until March next year. Eva and I shall rent a car for a couple of days and tour the northern part of the island before we go to Auckland to fly to Oslo, via Dubai.
