What a rude bunch you must think frequents this forum, not a single acknowledgement of your fine picture or ambitious venture.
So - Welcome on behalf of what is normally a friendly forum and good luck with your venture.

If I might offer a reason for the lack of uptake around here - the Webmaster, a poisoned wee dwarfie - the dark drumlin of Balvicar - has an Albin Vega.
He has undertaken some fine cruises that many a yachtsman in far bigger craft would never undertake. He has circumcised Ireland and has contracted Sores in the Azores, waiting for a fair wind.
However, His Webfeckness has now peaked in terms of cruising ambition and will be well hacked off that you are clearly Out-Vegaring him.
We all live in fear of a lack of connectivitiy so we normally just stay quiet if we recognise a post that is going to pee on the bonfire of the small grumpy one.
If you never hear from me again - I hope you will understand what he has done to me...... :evil:
Regards
Claymore

Sorry . . . I did have a look at your blog, but it stops in Viana de Castelo . . . I gather the boat is in the Canaries, and you are planning an Atlantic crossing?

Our blog of our trip to the Canaries in a Vega is here.

Please keep us updated.

Oh - so cold!

Has the giving hand of friendship withered?

Come on Nick - he's going to be going further than you - he's probably younger too and quite possibly better looking - lets face it, most of us are.

It's entirely possible that he only joined to point at his blog to up his clicky bits. You may never hear from him again.
