Finally managed to sail around the world nonstop, unassisted, solo in "Nereida"- completed 8th July 2013, after almost 260 days at sea.. "If at first you don't succeed..." Third time of trying for nonstop circumnavigation via Southern Ocean and Cape Horn....

('nonstop' = no setting foot on land anywhere; 'unassisted' = under sail alone, no engine use, no outside help with repairs, nothing brought onboard after starting out, so all food onboard from start, as well as all necessary tools and spares for repairs while on passage)

Lots to mend on boat now ... Sailed down California coast in Oct/Nov and plan to sail on to Mexico (for work & repairs) from SD for winter 2013-2014.

See website: www.svnereida.com for routes, boat details, photos, history, daily logs when on passage.

Antenna is backstay with insulators top and bottom.

Icom M801E with 12V power supply and 125W (PEP) output power.

Automatic antenna tuner, AT-141 .

Ground is sintered bronze ground plate on underwater hull, in seawater, plus 1 sq. m of thin copper sheet glassed in on inside of hull.

Sat Canadian ham radio exam in October 2013 - passed with honours (91%) so use of VE0JSJ (maritime mobile callsign aboard 'Nereida') or VA7NER (shore-based callsign) allows unrestricted use of ham frequencies.
