Sailing Malta Video

Here comes a short video from our sailing week around Malta.

We all had to work quite hard during the week of education. So no one had really the time to film so much as we would have liked. Anyhow we did a mix for the whole wonderful week we had together.



Ready for the RYA Day skipper practical

Finally the day has arrived for our adventure. Which means our trip to Malta. To do the RYA competent crew and the RYA day skipper practical.

Most stuff is packed. Just some final preparation left.

I belive everyone knows which bag belongs to whom

Taxi is organised by Salana sailing from Malta airport to Creek Marina, Ta Xbiex, Pontoon H. Where the sailing yacht is. That’s comforting that we do not need to worry about finding the marina.

We will meet M & M’s at Zurich Airport just after 3 o’clock this afternoon for the check-in and to have an early dinner. We are very excited and look forward to our sailing week.

A Beautiful Sunrise

Friday morning when waking up and looking out form the window.

I could see this beautiful sunrise with a NebelMeer as they call it here in Switzerland.

New recipe layout

If you are visiting our recipe pages, you will notice that the layout has  chanced.

We tried to make the recipes easier to understand, like a step by step kind of way.

Risotto Ingredients Tomato risotto

Now you will have a better overview about the ingredients and how to prepare and cook the various meals.

Among other things a calculator is connected between the number of people which shall be served and the amount of each ingredient.

For example, if you choose 6 servings (persons) it will automatically recalculate the quantity of each ingredient you will need to prepare a meal for 6 people.

The time to prepare and cook the meals is estimated of course – depends on how fast one handles a knive for example and what kind of oven/grill/stove you have in your kitchen.

And: You can even print the recipes! :o)

As you might have already guessed, we are no professional chefs, but very passionate ones! So please forgive us any possible mistakes… ;o)

We hope you will like the new layout and appreciate – of course – any feedback and ideas.

RYA Day-skipper theory assessment

Yesterday I finished my RYA Day-skipper theory by doing the assessment.

Everything went perfect and I passed the course.

RAY Day skipper Shore-based Certificate


As mentioned in an earlier post, I did the course over Internet and my review of an education like this on the net: It’s just perfect, good and fun.

I took my RYA course by Who are a RYA recognised Training Centre. I can just recommend them to everyone.

They give you all the support you need and in case you are doing something wrong you receive a reply by E-mail from them within minutes.

When you are doing a good job on the tests you will receive feedback and congratulation.

Later when it’s time for a Yacht master theory course, then I will do it by Navathome again.

Our visit in La Grande Motte, International Multihull Boat Show

We should make a video including some pictures. This to show you a little of our visit at the International Multihull Boat Show in La Grande Motte.

Unfortunately the camera we brought with us did not perform as we wished. We had to use the iPhone to be able to show you at least something.

That’s why the quality of the video isn’t the best. Never mind, at least you get a few impressions of our short time in La Grande Motte, France.

We hope you will enjoy it anyway – we did for sure!

Sunday walk among the wine yards

It was a wonderful Sunday yesterday for a walk among the wine yards. When friends of us asked if we would like to come along for a walk we could not resist.

The temperature was 18°C so more or less perfect – not to warm and not to cold.

Here are a few pictures how it looks like in the area we live (almost like Tuscany, Italy).

On our walk we stopped at a really nice little restaurant for lunch and some good wine.
