The First Time We’ve Turned Back. 35+ Knots Wind on the nose! Ep.158

Join us for some bad weather in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Not much fun punching into 35+ knots for the 4 inexperienced sailors onboard. We then say goodbye to our guests and sit down to have a chat to you about the most recent series of unfortunate events and how everything led up to us running aground and an accident onboard. As cruisers, most people we meet suggest to us that we move rather quickly around the world. We never really spend too long in one place before we either start getting itchy feet or as in this case are forced to keep moving to meet people in a certain location. This is a good lesson for others who’ve just set off or plan to. Try and avoid meeting people in places, when you can, make them come to you. It’ll be one heck of a sweeter ride. Hey man, slow down as Thom Yorke said once.
Do you remember the bread crumbs on our Pacific Crossing?

  1. Hey Guys,
    Good new Vid, sorry about Tony’s fingers, bugger. So I noticed something that you might want to adjust next time you go up the mast Riley. We just recently had an very unfortunate accident in our local marina in Sidney, BC, Canada. A wife hauled her husband up the mast to look at the rigging and the wind indicator, he was wearing a climbing harness like you were and had only one line attached to him. Well terrible thing happened, long story short, he fell from the top of the mast onto the life lines and ended up dying instantly. The moral of the story is make sure you secure a second line to your boson chair or your harness for safety! As you know accident can happen so fast and some are far more devastating than others. Just a cautionary word of something I will never forget now. I to have been up the mast with just one line although I also use a climbing ascender attached to a second line but never again always have a full second line attached!!! Happy sailing

  2. Another fine installment offering escape humor and wisdom. Favorite part was the stuck zipper snippet. Keeping things fresh & fun!

  3. Like father, like son. Now, we know why Riley is always hurting himself. A little drama helps boost the ratings.
    As usual another entertaining episode. Keep up the good work.
