Namani 2011Nana & Markus
21-Jul-2011, Yarmouth and Peaks Island, Maine
We're getting there, slowly but surely... After three years on the hard at Yankee Marina in Yarmouth, ME, Namani is now getting tantalizingly close to being launched again. The hull is now in good shape (with "Namani 2011" unfortunately being covered again by Awlgrip "Deep Blue" anti-fouling paint...) and the yard is close to completing some extensive core restoration of the deck. There are plenty of jobs left on the to-do list, but we hope to have her back in the water next Monday (25JUL) and then to be ready to sail up to Canada the week thereafter. We know that's the wrong way for going to Panama but as a German flagged boat we'll need to renew our crusing permit for US waters, for which we'll have to spent at least 15 days abroad. So finally we'll be getting a taste of those 6m tides in the Bay of Fundy... In any case, time to re-activate this blog again for things to ccome. Stay tuned...

We've finally put a little slide show compilation with some of our favorite impressions online. 12 months and 10,000 nm all in 2:09 minutes - something to pass the time until we can put Namani back in the water...
Shopping Guide to the Eastern CaribbeanNana

Being the bargain hunter that my mother trained me to be, I spent considerable time comparing prices between the various Leeward and Windward islands. My price list was born after I sent 20 postcards from Guadeloupe, thinking it would be the cheaper option, only to find that I would have paid a fraction of the postage in Dominica (and gotten more interesting stamps than good old Miss Liberte).
