Metamorphosis

This is the year of my final transmutation. It began four years ago when I gave away my television. All changes heretofore, have been in favor of convention; societal norms and mores; aversion to sanctions. Now is the time to foresake the conventions of land for the wild anarchy of the seas. The sanctification and restoration of my soul. I have taken inventory of my needs; a sturdy ship beneath my feet, white sails above my head, clothes, tools, and one lonely ten dollar guitar. I will have no… Continue

Sailor forgets underwear





When super heroes fly to the rescue of those in need, they are usually dressed in a cape and wearing their underpants on the outside.



But when sailing hero Pete Goss and the crew of Spirit of Mystery left their underwear in a launderette in Newlyn before they commenced their epic voyage to Australia via Cape Town, it was their turn to be rescued by an air drop of a very… Continue

A First Mate's Rules of the Road

My blog presents an unvarnished and, hopefully, a sometimes humorous view of a first mate's view of the cruising life. Would love for other first mate's to add their comments on this strange life we've chosen.

Some Purchases May Still Be Worth the Price



-FROM THE YESTERDAY'S NEW YORK TIMES-



By RON LIEBER

In the last month or so, it has become much harder to take out our wallets without feeling guilty.



No single authority figure has told us not to spend. But people are scared, and that fear is showing up in lower sales on all sorts of big-ticket items, from autos to electronics.



Homeowners had already been feeling poorer, and the devastating investment losses have made thrift a necessity for… Continue

CRUISING RALLIES



Whether you are on the East Coast or the West Coast of the US or even somewhere in Europe, this is the time for most cruisers to "migrate" to new cruising grounds. With the change in seasons comes the quest to find better weather and our community is filled with offers to make that transition easier. The advantages of joining a Cruising Rally range from the safety in numbers to the social… Continue

Looks like hurricane season has taken a little respite so everyone here in Florida is just enjoying the BEST SAILING STATE in the USA.



Unable to sail EW this weekend, but will be out next weekend. Last weekend instead of going into the intercoastal, we went through the #3 drawbridge towards the coast. We didn't go through the locks but motored over to an island near them. It was VERY COOL for a newbie like me to have the drawbridge opened especially for EW!



Note for… Continue
