Day 15. Aug 28, 2019
We have anchored off Coney Island - clearing customs and immigration. We will come ashore at North Cove Marina earliest 14:45 tide allowing. —Boris Herrmann
Not really arrived yet. Still waiting for customs. —Boris Herrmann
Land!! The lights of Long Island and New York City ahead. —Greta Thunberg
Home Sweet Home since 14 days. Soon last evening onboard Malizia ll. Tomorrow we reach New York. —Greta Thunberg

119 miles from Manhattan. Very light winds south of Long Island
Day 13. Aug 26, 2019
Rough seas south of Nova Scotia. But conditions closer to New York will be slower than predicted and weather update suggests Wednesday arrival - an updated ETA will come as we near the coast. —Greta Thunberg
Boris Herrmann is ready for NYC.
Dr. Peter Landschützer from the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology explains the collaboration with Team Malizia.
Day 12. Aug 25, 2019
We are getting closer to the North American mainland. Rough conditions, but downwind sailing.
Strong winds are pushing us west. We expect to arrive at North Cove Marina in Manhattan, New York sometime Tuesday afternoon or evening.
Day 11. Aug 24, 2019
Very bumpy and wet, south of Newfoundland. —Greta Thunberg

Weather forecast, including Amazon Fires
Day 9. Aug 22, 2019
Day 8. Aug 21, 2019
42° 25’ N 39° 27’ W. At sea you really loose sense of time and you can’t separate the days. You sleep, eat, look at the ocean. —Greta Thunberg
(Tropical Storm) Chantal is working very well to our advantage, and we positioned Malizia there to ride the Easterly winds to have a comfortable downwind passage on it's Northern end. We are currently at a separation point, a faster option would go further North, but the safer and more comfortable route a bit further South. —Axel Hackbarth
Good night from the Atlantic Ocean
Day 7. Aug 20, 2019
About halfway across the Atlantic Ocean. Very pleasant conditions. —Greta Thunberg
The whole trip is a bucket challenge. Thank god, we have more than one. —Boris Herrmann
Daily life on board. Drawing and playing games. —Boris Herrmann
Day 6. Aug 19, 2019
Sunshine sailing north of the Azores! —*Greta Thunberg
Some say it's like a roller coaster, others are just surfin' to the USA —Boris Herrmann
Day 5. Aug 18, 2019
Pos 42° 55‘ N 022° 12‘ W. A sunny day with nice winds. —Greta Thunberg
Sunday: getting ready for a nice Sunday meal. Last night we still did 24 knots surfing under the bright moon. Team sleeping well & tuning into this special lifestyle of rollercoaster camping. Teeth brushing, squats & music playing board games and chat all day with Pierre. —Boris Herrmann

Day 4. Aug 17, 2019
After a rough day at sea the team are all happy and feeling much better. No one has been sick but we all felt a bit off! Thinking of you all back on land —Boris Herrmann
Pos 46° 20‘ N 015° 46‘ W
Eating and sleeping well and no sea sickness so far. Life on Malizia II is like camping on a roller coaster!
When you have no wind and your drifting around... !!! Ahh the contrast to yesterday.... gives some time to slow the boat to have a wash and play some games... which Greta keeps winning! —Boris Herrmann
Day 2. Aug 16, 2019
100 nautical miles west of Cape Finisterre. A very bumpy night but I slept surprisingly well. Some dolphins showed up and swam along the boat last night! —Greta Thunberg
The team are experiencing some uncomfortable conditions and everyone is feeling a bit seasick but nothing too bad or unexpected. We are taking it easy and waiting for the conditions to calm. —Boris Herrmann
Day 1. Aug 15, 2019
We are on our way!
Leaving Plymouth and heading for New York.
All is well on the boat, good vibes and no sea sickness. I’m on watch now sailing along in the dark with everyone asleep. —Pierre
The night was bouncy and rough, but mostly everyone got some sleep. We are trying to find an organisation of space and storage and life.Everything is slow motion: dressing, cooking, etc. All ok so far and we will get used. —Boris Herrmann
