Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

retire- gov't,lawyers and insurance companies have made it near impossible for me to use the little brains god gave me and the skills my elders taught me. Never want to worry about getting pre approval to save some one's life again. Only approval I want is to clear customs from now on.
text and email no one who I haven't had face time with first and then only rarely.
do US east coast/carribean wth my bride. Shake down her (and the boat.) LOL
do the North Atlantic gyre
do the South Pacific gyre
Once done and while doing it use my boat as a traveling lab and infirmary for folks with Machado Joseph Disease (spino cerebellar atrophy type 3) Still no cure and little research as drug compaies don't see there being enough people with it to fund research - no "payback".. Do what I can on my dime with my time. High density in Azores, San Diego, south part of New England, north coast of Brazil and northern Japanese Islands. All good places to cruise to. There are also other areas where piracy and politics makes it problematic.
Done the races - no interest now.
New Boat comes in April. Starting to sell cars/motorcycles already, house goes next. Hope to say "bye- all soonest

Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

After a nasty overnight passage of Pt. Conception while going from San Francisco to San Diego 2 crewmen said they were "crossing out bluewater voyaging" from their bucket list.
So I'm more guilty of pouring cold water into the buckets of others.

I know it's not crossing the ocean or equator, but spending a year to 18 months to complete America's Great Loop is at the top of my bucket list.

5. Would like to re-visit Massawa on the Red Sea but the pirate situation places this destination pretty low on the list.
Those are pretty good - if I were to do someone else's list, yours would be it...

Mine is way too long to pare down, I'll just go with a tie for #1:

Norway's Lofoten Islands, and Sweden's Gota Canal...

No clue how I will accomplish this but I wanna do it anyhow.

I would also like to sail to England, although I will need more expirence and knowledge, much more.

A snowmobile suspended from dinghy davits, that would be a classic photo.

FYI 43.3 miles is the record for a snowmobile on water, so you should be safe.

Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

I've done the Indian and the Pacific, not much chance of doing the Atlantic, it's on the opposite side of the world and I haven't enough time.

So my bucket is full of Pacific islands, going east from New Zealand (tough part) to Marquesas, then wander westwards through the assorted island groups to New Caladonia, miss out Australia and then on to South East Asia (Indonesia, PNG, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, etc). This will take as long as it takes but we're hoping for 10 years and we start in April 2016.

A fundamental rule in my bucket is we're going nowhere where the temperature drops below 25° C.

Fly home for family/holiday events along the way.
This is very much I have in mind for sailing to UK/Europe. I may opt for sailing in the inland water by way of Bordeaux. Last year, I purchased two books talking about how to transit inland water and canals in Europe, doable and fascinating. Added bonus is that my wife is likely to join me.

There is an incredibly beautiful anchorage called Ankena on the north shore, about 100 m wide with a lovely beach at the top with resurrected statues (most of the statues are still lying down). Only problem with this anchorage is that it would be a death trap with anything from the north.
I stole this paragraph and save that in my iPad for future reference.
