First of all: I will try to keep it as "plastic free" as possible. No more plastic water bottles. Instead we have installed a watermaker, that can produce 60 liters of pure water an hour. Supporting this, a new wind generator and new solar chargers are in place, to produce as much "green energy" as possible.
Besides that, a lot of new gadgets will make life aboard even more enjoyable.
Next Tuesday my new crew will arrive for the first leg of the trip to/back Sicily.
A hurricane is hitting Greece. The Medicane is called ZORBAS!
Meteo Greece is predicting wave heights of 10+ meters. This is a wave height, I haven't seen in any prediction for the Mediterranean.
I doubled all lines and we hope, that the storm is going a different track. As the forecasts models seem to be a bit stressed, we really do not know, where it will pass through. Every hour we get a different forecast.

Lady Soul is now moored for one week in my favorite bay with my favorite taverna. I don’t have a generator and I didn’t have to start the engines once to have either hot water or to get the batteries charged.
Batteries are still full thanks to my photovoltaic panels and hot water is available through my solar panel :)
I‘ll give it a try for another week!
Thanks to Fred from Opua for taking the picture while fixing something at the mast top of his Broadblue 385
