41-year old Dutch sailor Mark Slats and his Rustler 36 Ophen Maverick took second place overall in the 2018 Golden Globe Race last night, and despite the late hour, received a rousing welcome from Dutch, French and British supporters there to applaud his super-human efforts in trying to overhaul race winner Jean-Luc Van Den Heede back up the Atlantic Ocean.Compliments:

Jean-Luc Van Den Heede wins the Golden Globe Race 2018:

The Golden Globe Race 2018 has been a race unlike any other, from the intentional lack of technology, communications, and weather routing, to the prerequisite requirement that all contestants sail in era-specific vessels, all in an effort to recreate the difficulties of the original Golden Globe Race of 1968/1969, which was the first singlehanded around-the-world race. Now, after some 28,170 nautical miles, France's Jean-Luc Van Den Heede (73) has crossed the finishing line off of Les Sables-d'Olonne, France, aboard Matmut, his Rustler 36 masthead sloop, with an elapsed time of 212 days and five hours (and zero minutes and zero seconds) to win this impressive contest of gumption, seamanship and perseverance.

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.

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

 

 

 

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

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.

Man overboard Procedure

 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.
