Namani at Sea
The travels of Nana, Markus and Nick aboard Namani
The windvane is up again!

Almost forgot to mention: The new Hydrovane seems to proof a worthy successor to our old Windpilot self-steering. Have used it on a close reach/close hauled towards Gloucester and down-wind and broad reaching towards Cuttyhunk and Newport. Very satisfied so far. Now we have to see how it copes with bigger seas (where the Windpilot struggled)...

While we're at it: A picture of Nicky relaxing with the Hydrovane at the helm...

In Newport, RI, for two days. Feeling a bit small among all those old 12m Americas Cup yachts and new mega yachts ;-). We went to The Newport Shipyard today where the average yacht's boom is bigger than Namani! Had a very surprise there with the people from Bluewater Technologies, who went out of their way to provide us with 15 feet of GTO15 cable for our SSB antenna connection. Made us feel not so small after all ;-).

Planning to sail to Block Island tomorrow and then on to New York on Friday for a Saturday morning arrival.

Moored in Cuttyhunk, the outermost of the Elisabeth Islands. Feels very tranquil and remote with some interesting WW II lookout posts. Ironically, this is the first place where we meet another German boat, Rasmus (I guess thise lookouts are no longer manned...).
