Again and Again and Again

Again and Again and Again

It is becoming an all too familiar nuisance of the first degree. We are becalmed. Again. After sailing a measly 20 miles with the last five grating every nerve in my body as the main and poled out Yankee threatened to take the mast out of the boat.

I gave up on the forecast as it was nowhere near to realty and used the wind I had until it evaporated and left us lurching in the southwest swell that has been building all day. To the south, storms rage and track across 50S. Caught in between, we’ve entered some special purgatory reserved for wrongdoers of Biblical proportions.

Perhaps I’ve overstated things a bit. Let’s go with disappointing: I am disappointed I can’t be moving East again today. And that I’ve entered into some special purgatory reserved for wrongdoers of Biblical proportions

    In weather like today having a fellow partner would make the difference of the world.

    Heavy weather conditions are great only when you have enough energy to enjoy it. I wish you the time of your life.

    Hi Bert, I came across your voyage on goodnewsnetwork.org looking for more positive and up-beat news in the world today. As we continue to try to isolate ourselves looking to conquer this extremely serious virus, you’re essentially isolated fighting the elements of Ocean Blue. I’m a surfer in Southern California and I’m always intrigued by extremely passionate individuals who take on these adventures, especially when it involves the ocean. I’m currently listening to some Reggae and enjoying a Pale Ale from our local brewery 🙂 Our Family is healthy and I’ll be working from home tomorrow, but will continue to follow your voyage rooting you on the whole way through. I wish you safe passage and pray that you will utilize all that you’ve learned to help you endure the many obstacles that come your way. You will make complete this voyage and I look forward to your future posts. Take care of yourself.

    Cheers,

    Bert,
    What an incredible journey you have set up for yourself!
    I find your reflection on the coronavirus to be incredibly insightful.
    Self isolation as a time to reflect on what we want to become, what legacy we choose to leave behind.
    To many that level of self introspection will appear daunting and even impossible.
    To truly examine our minds, behaviors, and motivations while holding them into the light through the prism of our souls is an exercise most would not have the courage to do.
    But I hope some will take up that challenge.
    Good luck to you!
