Infiniti 46 Sailing Trial & Foo Fighters

  Run and tell all of the angels
 This could take all night
 Think I need a devil to help me get things right
 Hook me up a new revolution
 'Cause this one is a lie

We sat around laughing and watched the last one die

 ..looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I'm looking for a complication
Looking 'cause I'm tired of trying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly high.
.........Foo Fighters


 Kirsty Neuschafer wins Golden Globe Race 2022

Winner of the Golden Globe race, without assistance or technology, after 235 days, 5 hours, 44 minutes and 4 seconds of racing (final time will be determined after the calculation of penalties for using fuel and bonuses), Kirsten became the first woman to win a solo round-the-world race under sail. This achievement was celebrated in Les Sables d'Olonne, now more than ever the world capital of single-handed ocean racing.

The Golden Globe Race 2022

Following in the footsteps of  Sir Robin Knox-Johnston,
 the first person to sail non stop around the world in 1968,
the 2022 Golden Glode Solo around the world race commenced
on 4th September 2022.
"This a retro race, where you can only use what was available in 1968,
which means  old school boats, celestial navigation, with no GPS or modern communictions. You have to deal with what hits you".
Quoting Kirsty Neuschafer, running first yesterday, against a reduced hardcore fleet, chasing hard.

  ..... Take the time to look at the shape of your sails




 A quiet achiever, sailing alone around the world

 A small sailboat came in off that same angry ocean,
          with just one young man on board.

 It had no roller furling sails, not even an engine.

 There was no generator, no refrigeration, no fancy autopilot systems, no electric   
 toilets and certainly few comforts below decks.

 The boat was simple, minimalist, in fact so basic I was shocked.
 It was not in great condition, but it got him there.

Volvo Ocean Race Leg 8 from Itajai to Newport, day 16, on board Turn the Tide on Plastic

  While Dee Caffari's Turn the Tide on Plastic team finished  in last place in the 2017/2018 Volvo Ocean Race (VOR), which wrapped up racing in late June in The Hague, they accomplished far more for science's knowledge of microplastics in the world's oceans than skipper Charles Caudrelier's winning Dongfeng Race Team by vigilantly collecting water samples along the VOR's racecourse. Sadly, but not surprisingly given plastic's ubiquitous presence, the news isn't good.

 The Williamson turn is a manoeuvre used to bring a ship or boat under power back to a point it previously passed through, often for the purpose of recovering a man overboard.

The Williamson turn is most appropriate at night or in reduced visibility, or if the point can be allowed to go (or already has gone) out of sight, but is still relatively near.

1.      If in response to a man overboard, put the rudder toward the person (e.g., if the person fell over the starboard side, put the rudder over starboard

2.      After deviating from the original course by about 60 degrees, shift the rudder full to the opposite

3.      When heading about 20 degrees short of the reciprocal, put the rudder amidships so that vessel will turn onto the reciprocal

4.      Bring the vessel upwind of the person, stop the vessel in the water with the person alongside, well forward of the propellers

If dealing with a man overboard, always bring the vessel upwind of the person. Stop the vessel in the water with the person well forward of the propellers.

FOR YOUR Enlightenment

"This existence of ours is as transient as autumn cloud.
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movement of a dance.

 A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky,
   rushing by, like a torrent down a steep  mountain."
- Tibetan Book of Living and Dying P25, - Sogya

"Live as thoug
h heaven is on earth.
Father Alfred D'Souza

 There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

   - Kenneth Graham
