These annual sub-pages of the website contain photos and short comments on what we did during each year, starting in Spring 2016, when our boat, formerly known as "Tabaluga", was renamed "Ngahue IV" and commenced a new life with us. News items begin at the Knierim Yard in Kiel, Germany and continue as we take her to Nieuwpoort, Belgium and prepare her for a circumnavigation. There is also a "semi"-page covering part of 2019 when we were working on the boat in Bruinisse under the watchful eyes of Yachtservices Van Swaay!
Our big adventure and the actual story of our circumnavigation, which first commenced on 21st July 2017, can be found in a set of separate pages on this site headed "We're off"! Here's the link to them: "We're off" pages on this site. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the world locked down and we found ourselves confined in French Polynesia. We decided to return to Europe, shipping Ngahue IV on the Sevenstars vessel Dolfijngracht. Starting again with 2021, our "normal" sailing resumes from here on until such time as ... maybe ... we decide to go for a third attempt to sail around the world!
