Logomaloyatlantictourpetit

 

MALOYATLANTICTOUR is a familial project of atlantic exploration, islands and its population. The departure is scheduled at the end of august and we plan to cross the Atlantic Ocean in november to reach caribean islands.

Beyond the travelling aspect, this project is the opportunity to have our children discover a different way of living and making new discoveries facing the beauty and the challenges of the ocean.

 

It is also a year of learning and discovering the maritime environment precious to our Britany region

Our daughters Maya and Cloé have registered to a program of following ocean turtles through STW charity organization. This project is in collaboration with the project Argonimaux from CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales) and will allow them to participate in educational missions of marine animals’ observation to better understand the lifestyle and the movements of these animals and the influence of weather variations and pollution on their journeys.

 

We are also looking forward to spending time with our daughters within this journey.

The boat

After several months of search and thought (To rent or to buy? Catamaran ou single-hulled vessels ? Alu ou polyester ?, ...), Our choice turned to the purchase of a FEELING 416 well known for its robustness, its qualities in terms of safety(security) and comfort. Its exceptional width (4.20m) offers an comfortable internal volume. But what the most seduced us it is the bridge(deck), vast, clear and little blocked. Not surprising, when we know that the bridge(deck) was drawn by Eric TABARLY and the hull and its arrangements by Philippe HARLE.

 

Despite these advantages, our MALOYA, monohull in polyester (1996) which must be again equipped for the deep-sea cruise!

Allocation of funds

This one year family sailing cruise requires significant investments for comfort, energy on and safety board.

 

Among the numerous equipment purchased and installed, we are still in the need of installing additional systems and equipment on board and are currently raising money to finance these items:

 

-       1 Windvane system!

 

 

"self stearing wind" regulator

 

As one of my English colleague says: “having a regulator on your boat is like having another person on board without having to feed him”!

The regulator does not consume energy because its concept of operation is based solely on the action of the wind and water which allows the automatic pilot control of the boat. Battery problems does not only happen to others especially in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Therefore to sail off with peace of mind and to prevent from any dangerous adventures, we have chosen to invest in this mechanical system.

 

Estimated cost: 3,700.00 euros.

If the collection exceeds the budget of the regulator, it will allow us to complete our equipment with:  

· 1 hydro generator (1000 Euros)

· 1 satellite phone (1000 Euros)

 

We will most appreciate all kind of financial help for our family sailing project and will be happy to share with you some of our sailing experience with the below sponsoring proposals.
