Cruising 2008 - 2009

Latest update of web site: 10.09.2019.

------------------------------------------

We are Eva and Bjørn, our home is in Fornebu, outside Oslo. We have sailed together since 1989. Our offshore experience started in the new "Tatt av vinden" in 2006, the third boat we have owned. We love the cruising life.

In 2013 we sailed "Tatt av vinden" to Caribbean, and we kept it there until March 2018. We have sailed some months each year between 2013 and 2018.

In March 2018 we left the lovely Caribbean waters and transited the Panama Canal to the Pacific. We sailed all the way to New Zealand and in April our boat was put on a ship, bound for Southampton, England. But changes happened under way, and the transport ended in Egersund, Norway.

We sail to see new places and meet new people.We sail carefully and slowly - what's another day at sea?

Eva retired in February 2018 from her work as head of the section for 24/7 operations in the Biomedical department in Rikshospitalet, Oslo.

Bjørn retired from his work as project leader and management  consultant in WSP, Oslo, in 2016.

Besides sailing we love hiking, bicycling, traveling, reading, meeting and talking with people.

Every day should bring some new learning. And, when we are cruising, it does.

"Tatt av vinden" is back home

 

Saturday, 31. August "Tatt av vinden" was home after 6 years, sailing all the way to New Zealand

 

On Friday 16th August, "Anne Sofie" came to Egersund and "Tatt av vinden" was discharged and lifted from the deck of the motorvessel back into the sea. After a week we sailed home to Blommenholm, outside Oslo, passing south of Lindesnes, the southernmost point in Norway.
