Star in the Ocean - A lonely and his beloved (the star) are crossing the ocean

Thousands of miles in 11 days, from the Canaries to Mindelo (Cape Verde): the "glamor madness" of Star Ocean in Dario Noseda is already a piece of reality. pit-stop to repair and depart for the Atlantic crossing, heading Bahamas. if you want to follow the adventure of Dario (in Italian but fb translates all), follow "Star in the Ocean" https://www.facebook.com/starinoceano/

Not trying to be funny, but the 900 odd nautical miles between the Canaries and Cape Verde is not "thousands of miles"!

There might be only an S out of place... Remember that not everybody is speaking and writong in perfect english.. Fair winds anyway for Dario Noseda...

Let's be fair. While "900 odd nautical miles" might work for crows, the track of this gentleman was anything but a straight line, to wit:



Just a rough estimate on just this portion of the trip showed roughly half again as many miles as the misleading straight line distance. The real sailing distance for the entire trip is unknown but it's surely a LOT more than 900. Rounding off may well result in "thousands" being less misleading. YMMV (pun intended, lol)

The modt important thing I believe at the end would be the enterprise of crossing the ocean with a 6.3 meter boat invented 106 years ago for olympics!!!

amazing story and his boat is so cool. I have never seen one like that. I bet he would be very interesting man to share some beers with (interpreter required). Wish you the best, sir, in your wanderings on this wet and windy planet.

Very nice lake boat.
Hiking out is not a function of offshore seamanship: stuntmanship seems the right word.

PASSED THE 40th MERIDIAN!
Dario and his Pa2sh have traveled 65 miles this night. In the evening it will reach the 42nd meridian and will pass the (virtual) buoy of the center of the ocean. #GoDarioGo!

STAR (INTERNATIONAL) sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

I had a friend who used to have a plank-on-frame Star. Neat boats with a huge mainsail. Can't imagine sailing one with all of the stores he has loaded up for such a long trip.

Re: Star in the Ocean - A lonely and his beloved (the star) are crossing the ocean

Today 5th dec. > DARIO UPGRADES US UP TO THE LAST 12 HOURS:
First SMS received from the ocean: "RISK BIG, ALL NIGHT". So Dario begins the synthetic report of the night, we knew that he would have difficult conditions, it was expected to gust wind up to 24 knots with rapid wave, this certainly did not play in his favor, in fact the second SMS says what we already imagined "I'm wet, there is nothing dry, no more forces now I try to rest, better condition now "and then" To warm me I wrapped a thermal blanket "and to close" Anyway I'm still alive ".
Unfortunately he encountered water problems in his "micro-bunk", certainly due to all the water on the deck this night, forcing him to stay in the cockpit. As soon as the conditions permit it, it will do all the necessary checks.
Fortunately, the next 3 days will offer better wind and wave conditions and Dario will take advantage of it to rest and recover energy.

Re: Star in the Ocean - A lonely and his beloved (the star) are crossing the ocean

COORDINATE UPDATE 07.12.17 HOURS 9.30The Atlantic crossing is progressing well, despite the wave that will be with us for the next three days, the mood on board is high. To the recommendation to make a "good breakfast" Dario answers via SMS: "I'm going to buy 4 brioche!!!!". The night just passed has allowed Dario to rest a few hours more and the awareness of having passed the half of the ocean has reinvigorated Dario.COORDINATES: 15.5166N -43.8323E
