In October 2016 Jan Hamester attempted to start a new record: single handed oround the world with an Open 40.
We appreciated this as an suitable test for our Ocean Power Prototype Generator.
We had already installed it on our own boat while sailing to the Lofot islands in Norway.
Unfortunately Jan Hamester had to give up in Brazil because of a severe sepsis and a damage in the rigg.
Together with his partner Mirjam Boumans he sailed back to Hamburg in September.
In spite of the failed attempt it had been an impressive journey. The Ocean Power was the most important electrical power source. It worked fine all the time and the measurement of winding resistance, insulation resistance and no load voltage proved that this generator had not been harmed during this jouney.
