And back to Vlissingen. So yesterday I was back on the Westerschelde to go to Vlissingen. With all the way headwind or no wind (went through the canal again) finally I had some place to go with the sails only 👍. And the wind fell away 🥴🙄 Anyway we still had the waves to enjoy. It was great again to feel the waves and the boat movement after being on the lake for 2 weeks. Have a great weekend all! #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #vlissingen #afternoon #sailingstagram #iphonexr #bostlife #priime #sailingtime #sailingadventure #blueharbor

Upgrading the electricity On Wednesday a very fine package arrived, containing the first 110w solar package for on the boat. Swipe ➡️ for more pictures. I’ve chosen a flexible solar panel so I can put it on the rooftop of the boat, with all the cables going directly along the structure. In that way I don’t need to make a lot of changes (holes) in the boat. Now I only gonna glue it to its place and within a few weeks I’ll get the 2nd for on the other side (and than a 3rd and so on 🤣🤪) #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #marina #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #kortgene #evening #sailingstagram #iphonexr #bostlife #sailingtime #sailingadventure #blueharbor #technicalsailing #solarpanels #solarsailboat #independentlife

Being unlucky and getting stuck

So, today was not a good day. When I left the little anchorage I got stuck with the boat on the ground. After trying to get the boat going (backwards, forwards different direction and geeking over while going backwards, Dinobarco didn’t want to move and was still stuck on the ground. After that I tried to swim to a pontoon with a dock line, but of course it was just 50cm to short. You can’t make that stuff up. After that I scratched half of my foot open because of the oysters in the ground. Thankfully there where some very nice people coming over on their boat and got me out of there. So I have them a few bottles of cider (it’s the least you can do) and left the anchorage as a proper beginner in sailing. Sometimes you have those days that everything you do, will turn out bad. But hey, you learn from it. Now just chilling and recharging the battery for tomorrow. #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #marina #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #kortgene #evening #sailingstagram #iphonexr #bostlife #priime #sailingtime #sailingadventure #blueharbor

Black and white picture of the morning dawn This morning it was a beautiful morning with a bit of a morning fog just over the water and the trees without any wind. It’s when you get out of the boat and you only peace, it gives you so much energy for during the day and a lot of new plans 😊👍 #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #marina #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #kortgene #morning #sailingstagram #iphonexr #bostlife #priime #sailingtime #sailingadventure #earlymorning #blackandwhitephotography #hellofromzeeland #paardekreek

Getting out of the Vlissingen Marina and onto the Veerse Meer This way there a fair going on in the Vlissingen Marina so it’s a good moment to go for a little stroll with the boat (for about 2 weeks 🤣) This video was shot on the Kanaal door Walcheren, which is a beautiful canal what goes strait from the Westerschelde to the Veerse Meer. The only issue I’ve got with this one is that I always have issues with the bridge central. We need to pass 5 bridges, but they never respond to me when I’m getting to the first. I’m trying with the VHF radio but nothing. And after that we have only arguments over the radio 🤣😬. I’m always afraid they gonna let me stuck between bridges for like the night or so 🤣

Anyway, probably it’s only me and you won’t have this issue. It’s a beautiful canal though, so enjoy the view. On the second video you see the marina with the fair. #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #marina #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #vlissingen #evening #sailingstagram #iphonexr #bostlife #priime #sailingtime #sailingadventure #blueharbor #walcheren #kanaaldoorwalcheren #sailingvideo

Celebrating today the #worldsoceanday with some windy conditions in Vlissingen. The raw power of nature is truly 😍😍 AF. Now only we need to take care of it, okay? Let’s do that! #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #marina #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #vlissingen #evening #sailingstagram #iphonexr #bostlife #priime #sailingtime #sailingadventure #blueharbor

When do we stop with making a fucking disaster of our habitat? I know that here in the Netherlands we’ve got relatively clean waters and that the marinas are doing as much as possible to keep the waters clean, but for fuck sake, let’s do all a bit more, shall we? Especially for us sailors, it’s our habitat and playground where we enjoy the nature and the sailing. Within a few years if we continue like this, we won’t have anymore the beautiful scenery and the waters. It will be all filled up with our trash and without the fish / birds we like so much. We should be able to do better then now. And the Blue flag criteria, sometimes I really think it’s a load of bullshit, just so they are given money by the marinas and it’s all done. #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #marina #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #vlissingen #evening #sailingstagram #iphonexr #bostlife #priime #sailingtime #sailingadventure #blueharbor

Bad weather coming in. I always got an issue when stormy and rainy weather is coming in. ✅ I know it’s better to be in the marina, but every time I get in a stormy situation at sea, I love the feeling. You feel the wind and the force of the wind coming into your face and onto the boat. ✅ The force of the weather makes you feel alive and gives to me such an enormous amount of respect, it’s amazing. #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #northsea #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #vlissingen #evening #sailingstagram #iphonexr #bostlife #priime #sailingtime #sailingadventure #stormyweather

So finally I got out of the harbor Of Zierikzee and moved the boat for the month of April to Jachthaven Het Sas in Goes. We started the day with a healthy breeze of about 12 to 16 knots coming along. And it felt that good again to have the boat powering through the sea as a train and eating consistently eating the miles through the water. We didn’t get below 5 knots but the average was about 6 to 6,5 knots. Lovely for sure but it went to fast. Up to the next time. #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #npoosterschelde #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #zierikzee #morning #sailingstagram #iphonexr #wintersailing #bostlife #priime #anchorage #sailingtime #sailingadventure #oosterscheldebrug

Enjoying February with spring temperatures. Finally we got a moment today to get outside of the Zierikzee marina and go for a little trip. But once we where out on the Oosterschelde the wind calmed down totally and we only had a mirror like Oosterschelde. The only thing you can do the is dropping the anchor and enjoy the view of the Zeelandbrug and some food. We had a great time, but next time a bit more wind maybe 🤣😊👍 #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #npoosterschelde #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #zierikzee #morning #sailingstagram #iphonexr #wintersailing #bostlife #priime #anchorage #sailingtime #sailingadventure #oosterscheldebrug

So, just got my new project delivered to the boat. It will be awesome to play Mario while sailing 🤣😊👍 #dinobarco #hallbergrassy #hr35rasmus #35rasmus #lifeonboard #sailing⛵️ #sailingboat #npoosterschelde #boatlife #båtliv #båtlivet #sailinginstagram #sailboatlife #sailboatphotography #photography #zeeland #sailstagram #sailingstagram #zierikzee #morning #sailingstagram #iphonexr #nintendo #raspberrypi3 #boattech
