Boat Show Seminar of How to Sail Around the World Part-Time, Houston Southwest International

Linus Wilson talks about his book How to Sail Around the World Part-Time in a seminar at the Southwestern International Boat Show in League City, Texas. This show too place at the South Shore Marina off of Clear Lake near the Kemah Boardwalk area. Linus, Janna, and Sophie visited the boardwalk as well as participated in the seminar.

How to Sail Around the World Part-Time is a former Amazon sailing bestseller. It’s description says:

“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. 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.

S1E13: Sneaking into Ecuador, Pollywogs to Shellbacks, Slow Boat Sailing

After being kicked out of Esmeraldes, Ecuador by the Coast Guard, the Slow Boat crew goes rogue and searches for fuel in Sua Beach and Atacames, Ecuador without checking in. These pollywogs go on a covert mission before they can cross the equator and be shellbacks.

Foreigners are not allowed to by the subsidized fuel in Ecuador. Linus does so anyways because he reasons it is too risky not to with the prevailing winds on the nose and a tired and seasick crew hundreds of miles from the first port of entry in Ecuador. Sophie, Janna, and Linus are refreshed from the shore excursion. They also get their laundry done after enduring continuous rains for four days in the previous episode:
“Seasick Sailing Across the Pacific in a Tiny Sailboat, Panama to Ecuador S1E12” at

Linus argues that marina and “yacht club” at Casa Blanca near Sua is not a port for sailboat. He also discovers that the electronic charts by Garmin and Navionics are wildly inaccurate along the northern Ecuador coast. They round Punta Galera, Ecuador, but can they get a better wind angle?

Janna and Linus celebrate becoming Shellbacks by drinking the ink of the kracken in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, engine problems slow them down.While they are slowly tacking south they see humpback whales in front of their bow. They arrive at the Puerto Lucia Yacht Club, but in the next episode the Slow Boat gets hauled out, and LInus and Daly have are prevented from leaving Ecuador.
