They know where you are!

When I joined the “Wonderful Sail 2 Indonesia” I thought it would be fun to keep track of the other participants.  I upgraded my Marine Traffic account and added all the boats. It turned out to be a bust as there are almost no Internet linked AIS receivers in Indonesia. But wait, there s more. Near the end of the three month rally I was sitting with the Government representative. I casually said: “I wonder where boat x is?” He opened his phone, scrolled down, and told me. He knew, and known, where every boat in the rally was every day. Don t ever think that you are incognito.

Rope Yarn

In the days of sail there was a time set aside for the sailors to mend their clothing, relax and chat. Sailors also made their own clothing. This was a opportunity to deal with their personal needs. On Reboot it is also a time to go over all the sheets and halyards to check for chafe. Today was a rope yarn day.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
