Well that was fore sure not the reason I planned the trip like I did. But first
just to keep things away from being mixed up.. Jan-Mayen is just a very small island between Greenland and Norway and that account name is just the rememberence of how this trip has developed: In the beginning, I just wanted to sail to that Jan Mayen... Hinnerk is simply my first name, so it's: one person - one trip (You are right, that might be a little confusing without the propper indtroduction by myself.:)
Actualy I do not intend to have the whole website turned to english and keeping to versions up to date is something that's a litla nasty. But the small "fact-sheet" (in the upper right corner you find the "english" link) is not the end of that story. Even if it wil be not so regular like it is on the german site, I intend to put some news and information there from time aswell. Unfortunately my written english is - due to a lack of usage - a little slow now and this might be a good idea to keep it a little more fluently in future.
