Race 11 Day 3 - Reflections

It's taken a couple of days to traverse Puget Sound and the Straits of Juan De Fuca as we depart Seattle.

Between the training exercises and inevitable practice man-overboard, there is time to chat and think about our stopover. Certainly, in the early hours of 2nd May when there is almost no wind and the sea is a millpond; reflections of many sorts.

Hi all, I was asked for a little background on my mascot, Stitch:

Back in 2019 when we were all younger, as a family, my wife, son and I wanted something to take around the world with me on the race.

Despite having been around dinghys for decades and yachts for the last 15 years or so, there are some things I'd never done before on the practical side.

As the race approached, the team looked for people to take on a variety of roles: media, team coordinator, treasurer and the more boaty engineer, bosun for the deck hardware and sail repair.

I'm still tingling with excitement from having started Leg 6, Race 10 of the Clipper 2019-20 Race.

Sent off with a Filipino traditional dance troupe performing for the invited guests but visible from our pontoon.

1215 local time and we slipped lines, snubbed on a short rope around the end of the pontoon to get a great departure to join the Parade of Sail. As we all congregated, a fleet wide call was made for a rendition of Happy Birthday to our very own Matt, 19 on the day of departure.

Apolo se sumerge en el horizonte, un brillo y desaparece. Desciendo el mástil y llego a la cubierta justo cuando el carro dorado se precipita bajo la tierra para prepararse para un nuevo amanecer.

Neptuno llegó según lo prometido el 1 de febrero. Cruzando el ecuador alrededor de las 21:00 hora local del 31/1/20 (11:00 en el Reino Unido) no era hora para el juicio de los Pollywogs. Entonces, en un cambio de guardia con vientos ligeros, los Pollywogs se reunieron ante Neptuno y la Corte de Sus Leales Shellbacks. Si bien se hicieron muchas buenas ofrendas en danzas interpretativas, poemas, limericks y recitaciones, los culpables fueron debidamente castigados, absueltos de sus atroces crímenes contra el Mar (¡incluso orinar en él!) Y ungidos Shellbacks.

Undulating silk smooth waters have given way to waves, cresting and occasionally spattered by rain. Squalls erupting from low flying clouds bring fresh winds, exciting helming with unpredictable wind shifts and occasionally a light shower. More often a torrent. Mischievously these last long enough to go down, grab your shampoo, get on deck and lathered up but not quite long enough for a rinse. Regardless, these are welcome relief for days of relentless heat and sunshine. Coming on deck is a relief.

Dos duerme hasta Navidad. Sí, es Nochebuena, pero en un sistema de reloj es un poco diferente. Estaré en el reloj "Niza" y estaré en la cama durmiendo a medianoche. El reloj "Naughty" estará activo cuando esté en la cubierta, así que si reciben algún regalo o solo algo de carbón, lo descubriremos. Aquí no se repite la televisión y nadie trajo una película de Navidad con ellos. Mucha música y álbumes navideños: ¡es como estar en las tiendas pero menos costoso! Mi esposa puede decirme lo contrario más tarde. Hoy he estado revisando el acceso al bote.

SOUTHERN OCEAN BLOG 4: 07.12.19

24 hours since the last blog, and the Ocean bit back! Fabulous electric light show around us for my watch. It arrived locally for the next one and there was no gap between thunder and lightning. No strike on the boat thankfully, but there has been a big wind shift, we heeled hard over so a few lee-cloths were tested and half an hour of hard work all around. No harm done.
