How have a series of Pandemics taken their toll?

Has Artificial Inteligence made life* virtual?

There has never been a better time in the modern era for iconoclastic, semi-hermitic, enigmatic adventurers to thrive.

Load up on knowledge, equipment, and wherewithal. Set a strategy for refueling, provisioning, gathering materials for repairs, and go.

We're not quite at Waterworld, but the future is brighter for highly mobile, self-sufficient, individualists than it is for just about anyone else.

Re: Predict our (sailing) Future

Sounds great!

Just go but........many are so used to the internet and a constant stream of updated information that to suddenly turn that off would be a huge adjustment.

Or do we all plan to have satcom. (or a a minimum an inReach Device)

As far as the Pandemic, no days off yet for me or my crew members except for those that have been sick or been near the sickness

Re: Predict our (sailing) Future

The one lesson we should take from Covid is that humans react in strange and illogical ways that are hard to predict.

I have no clue what will happen, so We try to stay as flexible as possible. And a boat suits that just fine thank you.

1. I hope that we see a return to more simple, smaller and less sophisticated and costly boats (but I predict that the opposite will happen).

2. Go sailing and not make a movie about it.

3. Sailors learn to enjoy and feel the serenity of a perfect little bay without the need for the internet, drones or jetskis. I'll live in hope (not).

I hope you are right Grant, but alongside I predict these evolutions:

1 Climate... Heavier winds will lead to new materials in boat constuction with hybird thin steel/composite/ sandwich shell laminations that offer greater strength and malleability in a lightweight package. These boats can take a pounding .

(For those on a budget ,steel becomes popular again

Sail and rigging efficiency evolves to keep sailors off the foredeck in heavy weather

Ergonomic foiling system integral to a recessed hull design offers greater lift for cruising boats, retractabile at night or in heavy weather, but offers high speeds when needed to avoid storms.

2.. Pandemics: will make international cruising far more restrictive and costly....so budget cruisers will slow down their circumnavigational schedule to stop for seasons to smell the local roses

3... Artificial Intelligence will enhance interactive virtual reality to the point where it satisfies the majority of those interested

If.. Big If.. I could get a flight (Portugals on the Red List) or overland it I would face a 1750GBP bill for a 14 day quarantine in a selected hotel..
Not worth it... plus I'm not paranoid about Covid..

Same here, Philippine Government will probabley be the slowest to offer western vaccines to foreigners, so just act defensively without paranoia

Re: Predict our (sailing) Future

AI used in advanced electronic winches. For example sensors relaying wind shifts and intelligently adjusting sales. Sheets for the mainsail for instance will be on separate electronic winches that are synced for respective pull and release. Greater use of predictive AI in course plotting synced with multiple weather, waves and forecasts as well as real time data. AI will be able to plot as well as adjust course based on instant processing of data. But the most important advance will be in the area of anti collision. For instance long range radar picking up other boats on your AI plotted course will automatically launch your on deck bow mounted sub sonic torpedoe. I'm very excited about this AI controlled automatic navigation anti obstruction device. However for the less confrontational effeminate sailors they may prefer using AI Radar detection to automatically adjust sail trim and course. Just some simple ideas for starters.

Looks like Cornwall will become the new Benidorm this summer,but punters are going have to wait for global warming to kick in if you want a suntan out of season.

Good news is the fishermen might then have a market for locally caught fish and be able to raise a sizable bounty for the head of Farange who seems to be avoiding fishing villages currently...

In other news council tax is going up to make up for the 400 million of EU funding we lost in the county.....
