Spring update

04/10/2014 13:36:00 PM

I see that it has been rather quiet in this blog lately. Partly I blame the HR 29 Owner's forum, which was launched in the end of the last year: the forum has gained surprisingly many members and some pretty interesting topics and discussions. I per

Copyright violation issues

Some time ago I was browsing the website of a large international sailing equipment manufacturer, when I noticed an image of one of their products, which somehow felt very familiar. I did a quick check from our photo archives, which confirmed that it

Helsinki International Boat Show 2014

02/18/2014 14:58:00 PM

This years HIBS was not particularly a festival of sailing boats. The number of boats in the show was quite small compared to previous years and most of the boats on the show had been presented already in the previous boat shows. On the other han

New video: Sailing to Gotland

01/29/2014 13:50:00 PM

We have uploaded a new short film to Youtube about our last summer's sailing trip to Gotland. As in the previous seasons, I filmed quite a lot of material during the season. Furthermore, the season 2013 was the first one for us with the GoPro camera,

Best of the 2013

12/30/2013 13:02:00 PM

Yet another year is coming to an end, so it is time to look back to the season 2013. In this blog post we list the best large guest marinas, smaller village harbours, wild anchorages etc. that we visited during the last season. It was surprisingly di

New video: Light wind sailing with gennaker

12/11/2013 14:20:00 PM

When freeing space on my phone memory, I found some sailing footage, filmed on the 2nd of June, while sailing from Jurmo to Korppoo. The weather in the beginning of the June was exceptionally good this year and temperature climbed above 25 degrees du

New forum for HR 29 sailors

12/05/2013 04:52:00 AM

Over the last two and a half years when writing this blog, we have been contacted by quite a few HR 29 owners or potential buyers from all over the Europe and also from US. In one of these e-mail exchanges almost precisely one year ago, I was suggest

Cockpit tent – are we getting old?

11/27/2013 13:06:00 PM

We have had the cockpit tent for one summer now, so I decided to make a blog post about our experiences after the first season. After it was delivered in June, we have been using the cockpit tent – often referred as 'Pappateltta' (Old man's tent) i

Summer of Sunsets and Sunrises

11/19/2013 13:28:00 PM

During perhaps the most depressing month of the year, going through old summer photos offers a good escape. Compared to the greyness and darkness of November, especially colourful mid-summer sunset and sunrise photos present a vast contrast. Therefor

The renewed mattresses

11/15/2013 02:45:00 AM

I blogged last spring about our plans of renewing the mattresses for this year. However, I just realized that we have not yet posted any images of the outcome. So here they are, a couple of photos of Dolphin Dance's new light coloured mattresses, whi

Building the winter cover frame

11/09/2013 12:14:00 PM

This week, building the winter cover frame and installing the plastic tarpaulin were on the agenda. For a moment, my father and I were actually planning to build a completely new frame from aluminum tubes, but decided to use our old wooden frame inst

Summary of the season 2013

10/30/2013 13:31:00 PM

The season 2013 ended on Friday 25th of October, when DD was laid up on the hard. This was one of the latest lift outs and this year we actually did make a couple of sails still in October. Usually our last sails have been in the end of September. Th

Hauling out season ahead!

10/26/2013 04:58:00 AM

It is again that time of the year when it is time to face the facts: yet another sailing season is drawing to a close, and the fun part of preparing the boat for the winter begins. However, I consider this as a part of the hobby, and doing the basic

Autumn break in Naples and Capri, Italy part II

10/20/2013 05:04:00 AM

During our autumn break in Italy, we had only two days to spend on the Capri island, so we did not have any ambitious sailing plans. Anyway, we kind of hoped to find sailing charter services from the island – just for a day sail around the island.
