How To Sail Around the World Part Time Chs. 2, 5-10, by Linus Wilson Ep. 62

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-9de5d-1165f0d

How to Sail Around the World Part-Time, by Linus Wilson.  Chapters 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10 read by the author.

https://www.amazon.com/How-Sail-Around-World-Part-Time-ebook/dp/B01B0OFYNW

“Do you dream of sailing around the world in a sailboat?
Do you have a business or career you don’t want to sacrifice for that dream?
Do you have kids in school?
You don’t need to quit your job, sell your house, and take the kids out of school to complete a circumnavigation of the globe in a sailboat. You don’t have to wait until you are retired to sail for the South Pacific. This book tells you how you can do it without uprooting your life by taking as little as two months per year off to sail the trade winds.
Circumnavigating the globe in a sailboat is on par with scaling Mount Everest in terms of its rarity. Many potential circumnavigators are hobbled by misconceptions about the journey that mountaineers lack when climbing to the top of the world.
It is said, “I want to circumnavigate to see the world.” Nevertheless, successful trade wind circumnavigators don’t see the world. Instead, they travel on a narrow ribbon around it stopping mostly at a narrow range of countries that are downwind. Lack of focus causes many more failed circumnavigations than storms at sea.
The conventional wisdom is that you need to quit your job, sell your house, and live on the boat year-round. The reality is that even retirees circumnavigating full-time keep their boat in port half of the year because of the demands of cyclone season. There is no good way to elude the November to April cyclone season that dominates 60 percent of the trade-wind circumnavigation route.
The mad rush from the eastern Caribbean to the “safe” ports in New Zealand and Australia in a single calendar year is misguided. It sets cruisers up for hard, upwind ocean passages in future years and saps the resolve of their crews. A better solution is to haul out their boats in the South Pacific and fly back to their homes in the developed world during the cyclone season.
It makes more sense to keep one’s job and home and take annual two-to-six month leaves of absences to move the boat forward during the cruising season. This allows the sailors to earn more outside the cruising season. Further, they can maintain the careers and businesses which they have built over many years. Further, cruisers still have a job or business to come back to if they decide that the cruise is not for them. Pursuing a part-time circumnavigation is likely to be far less costly to cruisers’ long-term earnings than totally severing ties to one’s job or business.
Going back to their homes on land is much more comfortable than living aboard, while waiting for cyclone season to pass. The most modest land-based accommodations are typically more comfortable than the most luxurious sailboat in port. Finally, part-time circumnavigations avoid many problems with educating school age children and obtaining necessary parts.
Learn about the trade-wind route around the world with stops in Panama, the Galapagos, the Marquesas, Tahiti, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Australia, Mauritius, Chagos, Madagascar, South Africa, St. Helena, Brazil, and the eastern Caribbean. Learn why the Pirate attacks in the Gulf of Aden have NOT made circumnavigating the globe harder.
This is the second book by the bestselling author of Slow Boat to the Bahamas, Linus Wilson. Dr. Wilson got his doctorate in financial economics at Oxford University. He sails an Island Packet 31’ with his wife, daughter, and four pound poodle. He has been published in Cruising Outpost and Good Old Boat magazines.

Around the World in 3 Days, I LOST BIG $$$ & my sailboat in a COVID-19 visa scam in New Caledonia Ep. 61

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-n6ef7-1032478

I wanted to rescue my stranded sailboat in New Caledonia. Falling victim to a COVID-19 visa scam I circumnavigated the globe in 3 expensive days on the fake promises of the New Caledonia government, the airline AirCalin, a greedy official quarantine Hotel Godwana, and my sailboat is still inaccessible. I have not been permitted to get back to my Island Packet sailing yacht since January 2020 because of COVID-19 border restrictions. I have been sailing around the world part-time since 2016 when I left my home port of New Orleans. I wrote this to the “quarantine hotel”, Godwana in Noumea, which I never stepped foot in but they have $4,200 of my money: “Dear Marie-Françoise, Yellena et Kika: Thank you for your response on the Google review of the Godwana Hotel. It raises the suspicion that you are part of a quarantine visa fraud ring in Noumea, New Caledonia. I am reporting this to the US State Department and New Caledonia Government. An honest hotel would automatically refund all XFP 420,000 of my booking. You clearly are acting in a predatory manner, and had everything to gain from me not actually coming to your hotel. Indeed, AirCalin which denied my boarding gets to keep my plane ticket without actually flying me anywhere. I was lured to Tokyo Narita airport to AirCalin SB801 on May 7, 2021, with written permission by the New Caledonia government to enter and have a COVID-19 quarantine at my own expense. I was denied boarding by AirCalin for made up reasons and stranded in Tokyo after $3,600 of plane tickets and two days of flying and $4,200 of a pre-paid (COVID-19 jail) hotel stay. My PCR within 72-hours was negative, I was fully vaccinated with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, and I had no exposure or COVID-19 symptoms. I promptly notified you of my misfortune. You only responded after I wrote a Google review of your hotel. You said that that you refused to refund the XFP 420,000 which I pre-paid. Godwana’s official response is below and attached. You wrote on the Google Review on May 9, 2021 (USA time): “Notre prestation de quatorzaine n’est pas remboursable le jour j car la chambre est bloquée pour vous pour 15 jours. Nous comprenons votre désarroi mais vos propos diffamatoires ne nous incitent pas à vous venir en aide. Nous ne savons même pas pourquoi la police aux frontières françaises vous aurait bloqué en chemin ?” Which is translated: “Our fortnight service is not refundable on the day because the room is blocked for you for 15 days. We understand your distress, but your defamatory words do not encourage us to help you. We don’t even know why the French border police would have blocked you on the way?” Your predatory billing practices should be investigated and your hotel should be expelled from any COVID-19 quarantine program. A hotel not involved in visa fraud would just refund my money. Unfortunately, the Godwana Hotel has very much resisted that. I think a criminal fraud and conspiracy probe should be opened by the New Caledonia police.

Greta Thunberg Has La Vagabonde Sail on a Deadline Across the Atlantic

Sailing La Vagabonde’s crew is expected to arrive in Lisbon, Portugal with Greta Thunberg, the climate activist, on board on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Riley Whitelum, his wife Elayna Carausu, and their baby Lenny (Lennon) took on passengers Greta Thunberg, Svante Thunberg (Greta’s dad), and watch keeper and British racing skipper Nikki Henderson on a three-week trip through the stormy North Atlantic on November 13, 2019, from Virginia, USA.

The 45-foot Outremer 45 sailing catamaran La Vagabonde would be tested in gale force conditions and up to six-meter seas to get the sixteen year old climate change activist Greta Thunberg to the COP 25 global warming conference in Madrid. The COP 25 began on December 2, 2019, less than three weeks after they went offshore on December 13, 2019.
All indications are the Sailing La Vagabonde creators made the decision to ferry Thunberg across the Atlantic at the last minute with little heed for the weather conditions they would face. It is generally accepted that recreational, cruising, non-racing sailing yachts should not keep schedules or sail to deadlines because it poses risks to the boat and crew and shows little respect for the power of the ocean, weather, or mother nature.
Greta Thunberg will not fly on planes because she believes air travel causes too much greenhouse gas emissions. With her two Atlantic crossings in sailing yachts, the lightning rod Greta Thunberg is the most famous sailor in the world. She has joined the crew of the most famous sailing vloggers in the world Sailing La Vagabonde with three times more subscribers than their closest competitors sailing SV Delos. Despite La Vagabonde’s 1.2 million YouTube subscribers, Greta is far more famous. Compare SLV;s 0.14 million Facebook followers compared to Greta’s 2.5 million FB followers.

My Wife LEFT Me in Tahiti! Alone on our sailing yacht, S2E21

My wife and daughter departed the sailboat and left me alone in Tahiti. At the end of a whale tour of Tahiti and a visit to the Heiva dancing festival, it was just me and the dog on the boat. Janna and Sophie returned to Louisiana without me. While in French Polynesia, Janna, Sophie, and I visited Moorea and Papeete, Tahiti on our 31-foot LOD Island Packet Yachts sailboat. This is season 2 of our round the world sailing voyage.

Netflix Destroys Triss from The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt #TheWitcher #SDCC

Fans of The Witcher 3, Wild Hunt video game are up in arms after actress Anna Schaffer appeared as the enchantress Triss Merigold in Neflix’s The Witcher Official Tease, which was released in San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). The Harry Potter actress looked very different than Geralt of Rivia’s love interest in the CD Projekt Red game that has sold over 30 million copies. Over 40 percent of The Witcher 3 gamers favor the mage Triss Merigold over Yennefer of Vengaberg as The Witcher’s primary partner in the game. Yennefer is much more important than Triss in the book series, on which the Netflix TV show is based. The Netflix actress Anna Shaffir does have chestnut hair as in the books despite looking wildly different than the character in the video games. Linus Wilson discusses why understanding the differences in the book story from the games and the differences between RPG and storytelling in TV and books means that the character and actress for Triss will not make or break the TV series.

The press release from Neflix PR is below:

“Netflix today [July 1, 2019] launched official social handles for highly anticipated new series The Witcher, along with first looks at the three lead characters; Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Cholatra), and Ciri (Freya Allan). Fans can follow official show news on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

Along with first look imagery of cast, fans were shown the first look at the series logo along with the teaser poster.

The series is headed to San Diego Comic Con with a panel at 2:15 PM on July 19 in Hall H. Moderated by accomplished actress and host and beloved sci-fi fan Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community,” “Mom”), the panel will include cast members Cavill, Chalotra, and Allan alongside showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. NX, the @netflix space for everything super, sci-fi, gaming, fantasy, anime, and beyond will be the place for fans to track all news on the series out of the convention on @NXonNetflix Twitter and Instagram handles.

Logline: Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.

She did all the sailing from Tahiti to Moorea S2E20

Take it easy and let your wife do all the sailing. That is what Linus does when Janna, Sophie, Daly (dog), and he sail from Papeete Marina in Tahiti to Moorea (Jurassic Park island) in their Island Packet sailboat. They check out the belvedere with Janna doing all the rowing of their Walker Bay. The Slow Boat Crew have been sailing around the world from New Orleans since 2016. This was filmed in July 2017.

Sophie wears a Sailing Zatara hat that was left in the give away box after their monohull (before they sold it) sailed away from Tahiti a few weeks before. When we were in New Caledonia in 2019, Sophie said she did not remember visiting Tahiti two years before. Hopefully, this video will jog her memory.

The WITCHER = GOT mega hit. Is it the next Game of Thrones?

You will hear why the first English language TV adaptation has the potential to be the next Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones fans are both burned by the disappointing series end and at a loss to find a similar show on TV. The Witcher Netflix fantasy series has the potential to fill that void. It is scheduled to premier in October, November, or December of 2019 on Netflix. The Witcher books were written by by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski.

The 5-book Witcher Saga seems to be what the show is based on and not the three prequels because of the apparent age of Ciri in the Netflix promotion photos. The Saga books are:

Blood of Elves

Time of Contempt

Baptism of Fire

The Tower of Swallows

The Lady of the Lake

The press release from Neflix PR is below and read in the video:

“Netflix today [July 1, 2019] launched official social handles for highly anticipated new series The Witcher, along with first looks at the three lead characters; Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Cholatra), and Ciri (Freya Allan). Fans can follow official show news on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

Along with first look imagery of cast, fans were shown the first look at the series logo along with the teaser poster.

The series is headed to San Diego Comic Con with a panel at 2:15 PM on July 19 in Hall H. Moderated by accomplished actress and host and beloved sci-fi fan Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community,” “Mom”), the panel will include cast members Cavill, Chalotra, and Allan alongside showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. NX, the @netflix space for everything super, sci-fi, gaming, fantasy, anime, and beyond will be the place for fans to track all news on the series out of the convention on @NXonNetflix Twitter and Instagram handles.

Logline: Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

Henry Cavill (Mission Impossible – Fallout, Justice League) leads the cast of The Witcher saga, playing the role of Geralt of Rivia, alongside other main cast members, Anya Chalotra (The ABC Murders, Wanderlust) as Yennefer and Freya Allan (The War of the Worlds, Into The Badlands) as Ciri. Other previously announced cast include Jodhi May (Game of Thrones, Genius) as Calanthe, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson (Fortitude) as Eist, Adam Levy (Knightfall, Snatch) as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring (Ripper Street, Kill List) as Tissaia), Mimi Ndiweni (Black Earth Rising) as Fringilla, Therica Wilson-Read (Profile) as Sabrina, and Emma Appleton (The End of The F**king World) as Renfri, Eamon Farren (The ABC Murders, Twin Peaks) as Cahir, Joey Batey (Knightfall, Strike) as Jaskier, Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards, Sherlock) as Stregobor, Royce Pierreson (Wanderlust, Judy) as Istredd, Maciej Musiał (1983) as Sir Lazlo, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte (Jamillah & Aladdin, Dickensian) as Dara, and Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter) as Triss.”
