Can you guess where we are (easy!)… but can you guess WHY we are here?
It’s about time we shared some of the joys of sailing with you. In this passage, we day-hopped with some of the best winds we’ve ever had from Malaysia to Thailand. Sit back, enjoy the ride and take in the views, it was AWESOME!
“You both seem like a couple of hoity-toity rich people who, if given a million dollars in cash, would complain they weren’t new bills…” Ah the joy of having a sailing channel, it’s money for old rope, isn’t it? And people appreciate all that hard work, don’t they? We explain what it is really like to have a YouTube sailing channel.
So while we sat in the heat awaiting delivery of a new alternator to battery charger, we got to grips with a few jobs like tackling that diesel leak and picking up a new solar panel. The wait wasn’t too long, and we got on our way within a week. Only to be thwarted by the furling gear for our genoa which chose this moment to get stuck.
We’re putting a hard dodger on Esper because we need to stay dry and warm during our easterly trip across the Pacific to Alaska and Canada. It will spoil her lines, but comfort wins out over beauty every time on a sailboat!
