Many of you have taken a look at the new www.satisfyingsail.com website, but I think few realize that there is a blog there, and I just might have more to say that you’d like to read. I just posted an excellent essay by Liam, who crewed aboard No Regrets from Mauritius to Brazil. Please take a look at the new blog here. If you scroll to the bottom there is a button on the right to “Follow” the blog — this will get you email notifications when new content is posted.
(For those who have ordered a copy of the book, I’m very sorry for the delay getting them from the printer. Don’t give up hope! And for those who bought a copy from Amazon, if you can bring yourself to say something positive about it please write a review!)
Announcing the long-awaited (by me, at least) publication of the book that began with this blog: A Satisfying Sail Around the World! Sure, if you’ve followed the blog you already know how it turns out 🙂 but it is still a good story, especially with the addition of bits that I wasn’t willing to write about at the time.
With the book comes a new website http://www.satisfyingsail.com. This blog is done, I think. Please check out the new site…consider buying a copy of the book…write a positive review (if you enjoy the book; otherwise pass the book on to someone else who might!)…leave comments and/or contact me via the website…follow the new blog there.
I’ll end this blog with a final thought. Our Earth is not very big. You can have a satisfying sail right around it in just a year or two. Aboard this small Earth ship is a crew of nearly eight billion humans. That’s a big crew, and it’s going to take a lot of cooperation to have a happy cruise into a shared future. We are the explorers — no chart, no book by Jimmy Cornell telling us what to expect along the way, no Rally with the support of other inhabited planets. Regardless of political boundaries, of language differences, of cultural differences, we are all “in the same boat.” Climate change makes this apparent. It’s time we started thinking like a crew…One Planet…One Future…
