Outremer Cup 2016
What a party! This years Outermer Cup, was a lot of fun! It was also the first year on our own boat, Mais Uma.
Along as Crew our good friends Arne Henrik and Jan Fredrik came along.
We tied in first place in the cooking contest together with our friends on Spica! And even though we did not win any of the regattas, and placed 13th. or so over all, the important price was the culinary price!
Without good food and drink on board, the crew will not perform over longer period of time.
We had a lot of fun and got to learn more about the boat, as well as how to race a little better every day!
The trip back to La Grande Motte, was a little bit slower, with 2 days with little wind, so we had to use the engines for 18 hours, and we had a night with strong head wind up to 26 knots and big waves, but no rain before we took the sails down before entering the harbour of LGM. We encountered on the last leg of the tour a pod of dolphines playing in front of the bows.
We are very pleased with the trip, and we vere cooking nice meals along the way, and had a very comfortable trip. Looking forward to our next encounter with the sea.
Tunisia was a positive surprise! The people were super nice, and we had a great two days exploring Tunisia and all the different aspects it has to offer! Luckily the family of a collegue of Anita helped out and showed us a great time. We can not thank them enough for making this experience so special. Tunisia is absolutely a place we can recommend to everybody. We felt secure and welcoming everywhere. We explored the Medina of Tunis as well and got us some local dresses. Good Fun!
