Amberella goes Atlantic
"SV Kilmeny departs a little earlier, since Amberella is expected to sail faster with its 10m water line. The first 15 miles consist of a perfect sail with the wind on the quarter. Amberella cuts through the sea with an average of 5 knots and makes a top speed of 7 knots. We catch up with „Kilmeny“ very quickly, but later in the afternoon the wind calms and we fall behind under sails, while Kilmeny uses the motor. At night we start our engine too and spent the entire night running the engine. In the evening a school of standard whales pays us a short visit. They are about twice as large than dolphins and have round shaped heads."
