Brunost is made of the whey - the clear stuff that is left when the cheese stuff is taken out of the milk (adding a dash of vinegar to the milk make the separation happen) - the simmered down to cheese -

I'v done this route before with my sailboat. But that was in summer 2002. Visited family and it was smooth sailing all the way. Trip to Værøy, Lofoten and ended up in Trollfjord. Norway and particular this part of Norway is breathtaking beautiful. Thanks for let us come with you in this (bloody) Covid times. Good job!

Cod is easy. Almost for sure to get one. Funny when most Norwegians fish for cods they use a fishing hook called "Swedish" pilk. In Norwegian "Svenskpilk".

@Stein Johansen Morsom historie...
Stein Johansen
Stein Johansen 19 dagar sedan
It is called "Svenskepilken" because of WW2. The pilk was first made in 1940 in Norway, and during the war, it was not allowed to produce steel products . So they said it was made in Sweden to avoid trouble.

i was wondering. i have heard stories from my local yacht club that when you are really far off the coast the stars are really really visible and that on calm nights one can loose track of the horizon giving off the illusion being surrounded by stars. can you confirm?

"...if we caught a cod..." If you want to go FULL Norwegian you have another step after "cod"... and turn that cod into "lutefisk". (Some people don't like it, maybe you're Norwegian enough now.)

One day would love to do something like this. Of course electrifying the inboard motor was fascinating! From sustainability and convenience perspectives this seemed like such a win! Was there a reason that you stopped there? As I imagine owning a sailboat at some point down the line it seems like electrification wherever possible would be really cool, although in some areas it may of course not yet be feasible or practical. I have not made it all the way through your series and so not sure if you might have addressed this question already. Thanks for the fantastic videos. Learning so much on your channel.

Pretty much everything on our boat is electric. But we have analogue redundancy as well. We can sail, steer, cook and head without any power at all. Since systems can and do fail.

I just recently discovered your channel and am hooked. Not because of your adventures (wgich are awesome). Not vecause Kika is so gorgeous ( which she is). Not because I live vicariously through your travels (ehich I do). No. I am hooked because I can see how much you love each other. It is the common thread that runs theough your posts. That moment when she laid her head on gis shoulder as the storm raged outside touched me derply and I galt/saw the love between you two. Awesome. One last thing....I used to have a Haitian gf and when she spoke Creole, i thoughtt it was the most melodious sound I'd ever heard. Let's hear a little, ok? Regards, Charlie M

...I mean, electric-powered heated clothes are a thing, yall. I keep a set so I can ride the Harley year-round here in Colorado. They work really well, and can easily last 12 hours. It will help with mobility on night & cold sails. And most are either water-proof or highly resistant.

I find my self savoring these videos. Closed in by age, health and government regulations makes my soul feel trammeled and caged but your videos let me know that some people are able to live a much freer life. A life of your own rules. I also admire the closeness of your relationship. Being a widower at too young, it brings joy to my heart to see ya'll and be allowed a window into your life. Thanks for all that you are doing and who you are. Keep on!

Running a fishing boat through many freezing cold winters we discovered the flotation suits developed for the offshore oil workers were the best for keeping us dry and warm as toast. They are mostly made of 2 to 3 mm neoprene with nylon fabric liner and outer, couple that with a "wooly bear" one piece fleece underneath a pair of moon boots and neoprene gloves. Great filming and editing as always. Cheers Rog.

Love your videos! Zhik must have loved the product placement... Geeky question- what speed do you assume for passage planning? I’m guessing 5 knts?
Sailing Uma
Sailing Uma 25 dagar sedan
On long passages where we’ll sail longer than a 3 day forecast, we usually plan for 6kts. On shorter 1-3 days trips we can plan more accurately. With good wind we’ll average 7kts. In light and variable wind, probably closer to 4.5-5.

You have to watch the video one more time. Look for the green light dancing in the nightsky. If they had been further north between november and february they would have seen it way more intense dancing in the sky, and shifting between green,blue and yellow. ;-) I´ve been living in northern Norway all my life, and the northlight never stopped to amaze me!

Racing has zero to do with it. One sail covers the second and it is then very easy to furl. There are always multiple ways to do things in sailing and each way has benefits but if you try this I think you will find it both easier and safer. Then again your way seems to work fine for you.

We have a wood stove. Any other type of heat takes fuel (which we don’t have) or electricity (which we use sparingly). But we finds it’s easier just to stay warm in good clothing, since we’re in and out a lot and we’d loose any heat inside anyway.

You don't seem to use your wind vane any more. Is there a reason ?
John Mayer
John Mayer 24 dagar sedan
@Sailing Uma Actually I think it is kind of a misconception using a wind vane only for very long distances. I used my Aries almost constantly when sailing single handed in the Danish islands even for stretches of less than an hour. Saved battery power (only lead acid was available at that time) and it was quiet. Tacking or reefing using the vane - no problem at all. I think a little more 'advertising' by SVfromrs like Uma would give more credit to wind vanes and less or smaller resource hungry electrical autopilots need to be produced.
Sailing Uma
Sailing Uma 26 dagar sedan
We explained this a bit more in the previous episode ( step 261) . But we normally use the windvane on longer offshore passages. Most of our sails here in Norway are 24hrs or less, or in narrow channels.
