    Hi, I'm from the Netherlands and have been lurking here for a while.
    This website and forum is a great source for information. Thanks!
    I sail my 22ft Peter Bruun Danish designed quarter tonner and double ender "Marsvin" named "Sunday morning sunrise" mostly solo on the North Sea.
    Here is a small video of my trip last summer:

    Best regards and happy sailing!

    I enjoyed your film, too. Is Mr Vee a brand of windvane or your name for it? I notice that your boat is very simply appointed. What was the temperature during your trip? Did you have any type of radar/ais? Thank you for sharing and welcome to the forum. Jackie

    Philpott: Mr Vee is a brand of wind vane steering. (http://www.mrvane.com) extremely light weight!
    "Simply appointed" what does that mean? Or: yes, my small boat has a minimalist approach, although equipped with N2K network, high tech solar system and 270Ah at 24V of lithium batteries for navigation and electric propulsion.
    The temperature was around 14C = 57F.
    I do not have radar, but I do have ais receiver.
    I have a complete NMEA2000 network on board coupled to wifi. This is received by iPad: screenshots in YouTube are from iPad.

    Great to meet you, Sunday!

    Looks like you've completed your 400 mile Qualifier to enter the SSS Singlehanded TransPac. Can I plan to see you at the Start next June?
