Transatlantic to Barbados 2013

Almost in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean you get a feeling how small the humans are. The speed of a sailing boat with 8 knots is almost equal to the speed of a stage coach in the 19th century. Sketched on location 2 December 2013. The colorful sail is a gennaker of 88 square meters (about 1000 square feet). Our position was 15 degree 34´North and 040 degree 5´West (Take a look in Google Earth).

Sketched with pen, ink and watercolor while the boat was rocking and rolling.
