cold to warm – thanks YMCA and Patagonia

Published by



The director Bob DeAngelo from the YMCA in Greenwich donated us free entries for the whole family to get fit for our next challenge climbing the TOP of the “8th continent”: Mt. Gunnbjörn in the Arctic next spring.

We did a public presentation about our expedition at YMCA to say thank you.


We had more presentations at the Audubon in Greenwich and at the Southport Congregational Church.

The Patagonia store in New York donated us with some warm clothing to keep warm.


Like always we had our challenges. Doctor Karen Tam was an angel to fix Alegra falling from the mast. She even organized a fundraiser at her home. A famous jazz musician was fixing Salina’s cello when it broke rashing to a presentation in Southport.

Our kids love animals. Tricky to have them on our boat, but we are lucky that we can still enjoy them in the wild.
