  1. I’m fascinated by a wind generator on a boat. Do you run it while you’re actively sailing, or just when anchor’s dropped? The engineer in me is curious about how it impacts your speed/sailability if you run it while cruising.

    • Speed loss is negligible, as this isn’t a racing boat. It runs any time there is wind, regardless of if we’re sailing or anchored/docked. The wind generator auto-regulates itself depending on the batteries (basically, when the battery voltage is maxed out, the generator stops itself, even if it’s still windy). Power generation is always our number one priority, if it’s windy, the wind generator provides, if it’s sunny, the solar panels provide. (The Capt)

  5. Fascinated by your voyage. We will soon take possession of our C&C 39 landfall centre cockpit so we have been living vicariously through your site. Hope you enjoy the islands and thanks for doing this. Fair winds.
