Ain’t Much

Ain’t Much

Ain’t Much

It doesn’t look like much, and it ain’t much, but this is the most sun I’ve seen in close to 4 days. Back on the West Coast of BC that’s the norm for winter, but it is supposed to be summer down here.

Forget about being warm, I would like to know where I am beyond “at C” as Salty advised just before resuming his arduous mental preparedness regime. I’ve had three sun sites in the last three days and I figure my DR uncertainty is close to a half-days run (10% of distance run) consisting of a circle with a radius of 40 miles. That’s more than 5000 square miles. Hitting something other than another vessel isn’t the problem, weather routing is. 40 miles is enough to keep you behind, in front, or out of the serious stuff. Good routing is impossible with bad position data.

Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun
Please come out play!

    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!
