I have been remis(s) in my duties A couple of weeks ago, Scott was a guest on my show. We took a closer look at the life of a cruising journalist, and a few details were related about the above adventure. This was a fun interview. Listen for yourself.

As much typing as I do every day a typo or two (dozen) is acceptable. I spelled it right the first time, but lost it do to connection issues.

Great story Scott. An amazing adventure no doubt. You mentioned Typhoon season being over. I was under the impression that Storm season was from June to December around there. Is that incorrect?

Hi Randy,

Hong Kong Observatory says end is 31 Oct. Part of the problem here was counterbalancing the weather window against favorable weather in Gulf of Thailand, as well as winter monsoon (circa December) where the swells are guaranteed to be quite large and the first few months of the year, when winds would be very light and/or variable. We were hoping to get favorable winds, no typhoons and moderate seas. Obviously got it wrong on all counts.

One of the things that gave us some (ultimately false) confidence in our weather window is that a semi-annual race across the S. China Sea comes at exactly the same time. The previous year, when we originally planned to go, it went off without a hitch.

Talbot, sorry, I have no control over that one. The producer/site owner has set that up.

That area sounds like a tough zone to sail in regardless of the season. Did you end up selling the boat or are you rebuilding it?

Indeed, if I had a choice I probably would have avoided this stretch altogether. But, overall I'd have to say it was a positive experience for me.

To say a sale is pending on the boat would be wildly optimistic, but I have had a few nibbles.
