Last update August 15 2005.
It's nice to have a car again. Specially when you have a lot
of work to do on a boat.
As we arrived in Marmaris on August 7 we picked up the car in Mugla and searched for nescessary parts all over Marmaris. Big price differences with the Marina. I got me an electric anchorwinch and a new 20 kilo (fake) Buegel anchor. No more back-breaking in hauling up the anchor and now it's even possible for Jolanda to do the job.
Windgenerator work is still in progress. Got a pole on the back to put the thing on, but a second hand generator isn't easy to find.
We updated the journals and put the July photo-album in the
gallery. Hope you'll enjoy reading it, Jolanda thought it a hell of a job
writing in over 40 degrees of Turkish summer heat.
Most of the time we're at the pool. Me for 30 minutes, then back to the boat doing small jobs for 30 minutes, then back to the refreshing pool again.
It is tough for the cats as well.
But better than 14 degrees and a lot of rain as in Holland.....
We're at Marmaris Yat Marin at this moment, position
36°49' N - 28°18' E.
Coming weeks we'll drive the car back
to Holland and fly back again the end of August.
September and October 2005 will be spent on the Turkish coast and November 1 we'll start off with th rally which we help organise and visit a diversity of countries at the Red Sea and on the way to India. Detailled information on www.redsearally.com.
Next (2006) we will go from India to Maldives,
Thailand, Maleisia. We hope to get in Hong Kong and Japan in 2007.
From then and there on we want to sail from Alaska to the US, and then down to Mexico, Costa Rica and by Galapagos (2008) through the Pacific Islands back again. Eventually we want to get to New Zealand and Australia. On our way back (2009) we will visit the Chagos Archipelago, Seychelles, Madagascar, South Afrika.
When we still have time and money left we go by St.Helena and Carribean back to the Netherlands, or we might sell the boat somewhere on the way........
