You understand why we are doing this whole trip, don’t you? We’ve left the rat-race and are off to discover new places. Places that inspire and excite. Really we are looking for that perfect idyllic sea where no man can be seen for miles around.
So imagine sailing 4,000 miles, only to discover this…
Pictured above is a screen grab of our chart plotter. It shows the Arabian Sea with Oman on one side and our destination, India, on the other. The green line coming in from the bottom left is our track and the red line across the page is our proposed route. You may even be able to spot the blue ‘Half Way’ marker. It is the green triangles that I want you to consider though. Each of these is a vessel, normally commercial. And slap bang in the centre of it all is Esper, the red boat pointing east!
So much for quiet destinations and undiscovered, exotic places!
