jolies images.... :-)
Some more pic following :-)


Old Gray Reef Light at sunrise when I rounded it going East .

You will notice on the photo, there are no more windows in the lighthouse tower ?

Here is why ...

After being de-commissionned and abandoned for years, a humongous storm over Northern Lake Michigan blowed all the Windows off with waves crashing over it, but ...it was already covered by ice from a previous storm :-( sad ending for such a solid construction .

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
