Sad, because 2nd half of passage looks as interesting as the first half.

Unbusted, I started with polars that I had from another project, from a slightly faster custom cat. The difficult with LV is that this crew is a bit inconsistent - sometimes sending it and other times not - more than I am used to.
hope you get better soon
perhaps one of the open cpn boys runnin routing software on that might step in to give you a bit of time for R&R

Sorry to hear that. Hope you heal up quickly. And thank you again for all of your very educational contributions!

I'm really sorry! To a speedy recovery!


I have somehow miraculously managed to avoid ever once getted banged up on a bicycle, despite a lifetime from age 5 flying around on bikes, often at unreasonable speeds. Pure luck as far as I can tell.



Otherwise for me with motorcycles, where I've managed to have three nasty bashes, all of which have left various body parts mangled and with hideous scars.


I wish you swift healing and no bad memories.

Re: La Vagabonde's crossing

atoll it is very clear your an armchair sailor with very little real world experience but a hateful keyboard. Very easy for you to hide behind your screen and take shots at real adventurers. Riley has this, he has experience, a good boat, great crew and professional router. You on the other hand have Mrs Palmer and her five friends.

If you'd spent much time here, you would know that Atoll has many more sea miles in much more varied conditions than Riley,
He's an experienced delivery skipper and circumnavigator.

Dayum, BW, so sorry to hear this. Glad it wasn't worse though it always seems to feel worse the next day. I've been taking notes throughout this post, but not quite ready to take over for you so I sure hope you can still type with one hand and see the routing with one eye. Perhaps that will take your mind off the pain and help you heal faster!

Yeah, but he's kinda been an ass in some of his postings...does his sea miles give him a bye?

La Vaga turned more eastward during the night to avoid a lull. It seems to have worked for them, when i checked they were at 10.3 knots.

Oh no! A routing, polars, navigation error? Or a third party not respecting the COLREGS?

All joking aside, I trust that there will not be any permanent damage and wish you a speedy recovery

Atoll called a spade a spade as he saw it. He even reasoned it.
On some shores it is appreciated, on other shores it is despised.
