Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

Sdrawkcab gniklat era uoy erawa uoy era?

This is what my partner asked me when we landed at Mangareva, after 72 days out at sea.

It did take me a moment to understand she was actually talking backwards.

So I would not make any early and far fetched conclusions about someone else repeating every sentence twice, after a 55 days passage.

1.36 l water per day for him against our guesstimate of 1.5 liter for us. I so do not think getting below this amt can bring you any good. Can be like actually what a small frame human needs.

Coffee ... in a small boat, on along passage, you do not drink it, you chew it.

My ignorance of all this philosophical, literary, religious, and coffee stuff is, bliss.

His liquid consumption was most likely not in that order.

I think the six marriages refers to the number of times he has circumnavigated the world, not how many times he's married a woman,lol

Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

More posts. Need to catch up.

His similes are puke horrible, but you need to read his logs.

"In one account of the race I found their boat described as a “humble Moore 24”. I think not. Small, unquestionably, but is a Stradivarius violin humble just because it is not as big as a double bass?

Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

Webb posted the passage log two days ago. I am still reading it. Killing all the romanticism. Mostly salt, boils, discomfort and then more salt. A dolphin now and then.

Really better than a day in the office???? Must be a very bad office then!

;-)

Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

Yes exactly. You make your stunts so all those complaints and wahwah's are meaningless. He makes a ton of mistakes. Miles under the keel added up mean nuthin. We don't GAS.

I find enjoyable the real simple. I forgot about this girl's attempt, but I think this is totally in the spirit of sailing and what it should be:

Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

Makes one wonder if Webb would post more video material if he had those long slender legs ...

And yes mistakes happen. I often wonder if we make more, or fewer, mistakes as we get more miles under our belts.

My initial guess is that we make more mistakes ever since we have developed strong sailing skills. Which is probably past the first two years of extensive cruising/sailing.

Then again, maybe some of us are different than others. Perhaps complacency and ageing are not the only drivers.

Re: Moore 24 Circumnavigation

Thing that have been reinforced:
  • A shakedown cruise is critical if you have new equipment and sailing solo a far distance.
  • Electronic self steering devices alone are ****. Buy a wind-vane as your primary device. Use electronics secondary.
  • Tiller electronics ALL suck. Raymoron still sucks.
  • Electronics in general will fail. Do not depend on electronics.
  • Write down your estimation of the direction of the centre of lows in your log, and track any movement of these centres in comparison to wave chain. You will get a better sense of growler potentials and upcoming WX complexities.
  • Keep your celestial skills even if they aren't useful in cloudy days.
  • Never drink on a boat as it tempts neptune into striking. u r having too good a time.
  • Never bring glassware on a boat.
  • Keep spare clothes etc dry and put them away when done.
  • Never lay ahull in a small boat.
  • Keep all movement and repairs simple.
  • Salt Water baths do NOT work. Use wipes.
  • Keep your deck clear of all clutter and tie everything down tight including tying ties down.

Never say you are not going to use modern WX methods including GRIBS and then ask for advice from ships on weather forecast. wtf said SM.

Q to SaltyMonkey: Can a drogue be used as a sea anchor on a small boat instead of lying ahull?

See, what I like about Ms. Pirate is she sails a lot like me. I think she has better instincts about what sailing is and feet are sailing.
