4 Sep

#206. Mia & I met the Veber’s in Horta in the Azores back in may, where the family of four had just completed their return Atlantic crossing in their 30’ “Anna Lisa.” The Veber’s had set out from Sweden the year before towards the Caribbean, and after a winter cruising & exploring the Caribbean, were headed home. We invited the whole gang aboard Isbjorn, including the kids Trulls & Mathilda, where we talked about sailing as a family, leaving home, friends and school, the challenges of living on a small boat peacefully, what it was like to be filmed on the Swedish TV-show ‘Familjer pa Aventyr’ and how they felt about returning home.

2017 Trans-At Mintaka Star Duo Barograph Data:

You can quite clearly see the two lows we had during crossing from Bermuda-Horta on this graph. They're indicated by the deep dips in pressure around May 22 and May 26. Cool huh?!
