I just received word from Yrvind that he entered the port of Horta around midday today. Entering the port was quite eventful, more on that later. He had some headwinds with varying force the last couple of days which has given him quite a few new ideas for the next boat.

All is well with Yrvind who will be quarantined for a few days and catch up on some sleep on the Portuguese island.

Favorable winds

The weather has treated Yrvind well and he is reporting that the winds are taking him out to sea at a comfortable pace. Everyday he is exercising his back in order to avoid back pain. As he is navigating the deep Atlantic ocean new boats are taking form on his drawing board and good books are still a treat. At the present he is reading Bernard Moitessiers first book on its original language, French.

He reports that everything is well on Exlex and he reports that he truly enjoys the deep blue sea!

First post from the sea

I strive to understand life. Reading books helps me. A small simple boat out there on the ocean is an excellent reading place. So far I have read the enclosed three books and gained a lot of understanding. I can highly  recommend them.

The design of the Canoe Yawl is also doing good progress. While at sea Capten Grahn and webmaster Beppe is helping me with my site. Exlex behave excellent and steer her self in all vind directiontions.

Books I have read:

Metabolical  Lustig

The Cancer code – Fung

Ketones the fourth fuel – Christofferson

Some help with internet

Yrvind is currently in Porto Santo preparing to embark on his voyage to the Sargasso sea. The internet is not very predictable on the harbour of the Portuguese island and will definitely not be better on the Sargasso sea. That is why Yrvind has asked me to assist him in updating yrvind.com. Below you will see his latest video with an update of the current situation
