Waiting has never been as easy as with this view!
Our land-sailor rests surrounded by incredible landscape: the Fitz Roy and Torre Zero, known in the climbing world as two legendary mountains.
Martin Kammerer, of Markone (http://www.markone.de), who was indispensable in advance constructing the land-sailor and now accompanied the project in Patagonia as our sailing expert and technical advisor.
Without the wind, temperatures can rise up to 25 C° … we weren’t prepared for that but we enjoyed it anyway.
At night, however, temperatures can get very cold again. On this evening, at least we were lucky to find some wood for a fire.
Without wind and mishaps, we finally had time to make a nice group photo
From left to right:
-Pablo Wendel, artist at „Performance Electrics“ (http://www.performance-electrics.com) and my sailing partner in the land-sailor project
-Erik Schimschar, cameraman and responsible for the beautiful pictures
-Nicolas de Jesus, our Argentinian producer. He was responsible for sound, shopping, to organize workshops for repairs, driver and on top he was also a brilliant cook. This quickly made him irreplaceable for our project!
And finally, this is me, Daniel Beerstecher, the artist responsible for this project.
Martin Kammerer, our sailing expert has already left us at this time because little wind had been predicted and we now had learned the basic requirements for „land sailing“.
