Looking good

After the last maintenance in October 2010, BE is still shining like new. Here are some photos from March 2011. A great boat and perfect home for a special crew…

Gibraltar

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Anchored just under the Gibraltar rock we’re waiting for the right winds to sail South, which proves a bit more tricky as expected because the weather in the Atlantic is all over the show at the moment…

PS: Here a photo of BE leaving Sardinia from our new friend Thomas.

…you’re a gem! Having a ball on our passage through the central Greek islands in up to 40knots of wind. Happy days!

Thanks a million J&A for the good times we had together. We’ll remember the great conversations we had, good food, even more wine and some fantastic diving. You’re a really great couple and we wish you best of luck for your study and next adventure.

Thanks Karen & Bruce for a great time. Hard to believe that you haven’t sailed before, because you picked everything up so easily… All the best for your travel and ideas. Looking forward to seeing you again.

BE is enjoying some magical sailing in gentle to fresh winds… (no signs yet of the strong uncomfortable Mentemi which can make life difficult during the summer months)

Look at this water!!!

Even the Pacific or the Maldives would struggle to keep up with this cristal clear water in Turkey. Still a little bit nippy but every day of sunshine gets us closer to the perfect swimming. Boat is loaded up full with treats and we’re trying to dodge the summer crowds on our quest for the last unspoiled anchorages…

Now I see…

Finally we get to know what it is like to sail without any commitments to be at a certain place at a cerain date. And it is fantastic! Just going with the wind, skipping bad weather and enjoying the good days to the fullest. Daysailing from one anchorage to the other. Catching up with good friends like Aleksey or Mike and Danıelle. That’s the way! …and I don’t even worry anymore that we still have no clue on what to do for work or even where to live in the future. It will all come together soon… I reckon… maybe …well, who cares!

Thanx so much Phil, Nick, Dean for coming, sailing and treating us. We had an awesome time, Santorini being literally the ‘best at last’… Lucky you flying back to the Australian summer as a fresh winter approaches in the med.

for this poem….

An Ode to the Berlin Express
To those who have sailed the seven seas,
With help of gusts and gales and breeze,
No sight is as dear as a sunset with friends,
And so dear those friends will be ’till the end.

A red boat she is, almost 12 metres long,
A sight so beautiful, should be remembered in song.
Or at least a poem, a rhyme or a rap,
And hopefully in stanza which won’t be too crap!

I spent almost two weeks, feeling her keel,
Hoisting and steering, on course, with such zeal.
With Chloe, her smile, sarky wit and good nature,
Complemented by Stef, her hero and saviour.

Sea air, blue skies,
Rough waves, panda eyes,
All combine in my memory which over time will be hazy,
But thanks to the magic of Canon, I don’t mind being lazy,
For I can look back in time, with no need for distress,
On my wonderful time on the Berlin Express.
