Awesome. I really like his boat, and that chicken seems like she loves sailing!

Ohh, the decisions to be made: omelette today, or fried chicken?

An interesting choice of sailling companions!

What a fowl life! Wouldn't a chicken be too......chicken to circumnavigate?

Re: around the world with a chicken ?...

Point to ponder: If you have sausage and eggs for breakfast, The chicken is involved..... the pig is committed. I would rather be a chicken in this case

Re: around the world with a chicken ?...

I think a few countries might not appreciate the supercargo - Oz comes to mind. They confiscate both chicken (meat) and eggs when you arrive. Can't imagine they would allow the source of both to enter the country as crew.

Re: Around The World With A Chicken ?...

I saw a video of this cruise - I'm fascinated by the choice of the Northwest Passage in a small sailing vessel - would really like to hear more about that.
