Re: Record Breaking Circumnavigation

I've tried to ask politely, but haven't read an answer. What's the compelling reason someone should donate? I have a dream won't work, it doesn't work for me.

Call it criticism, if you like. It's intended as input. Sometimes hearing what you don't want to hear can save a ton of time that might otherwise have been spent on a better idea.

Re: Record Breaking Circumnavigation

I suspect that your best bet is to find a boat owner who wants to do a similar trip but needs your experience and help. Develop a youtube channel and gain followers via good video and communication. Lots of people would like to follow the circumnavigation. Lots of people have youtube sailing channels where they ask for beer money and to be a Patreon patron (give donations). People must be donating beer money here and there. Probably small donations I would imagine.

Sailing around the world is something that 10,000 want to do vs 1 that does it.

If I had a blue water boat, I would be interested.

Re: Record Breaking Circumnavigation

Even if you had a suitable boat and all the money you needed, can a person even visit every country? I can't imagine North Korea being very welcoming, and I'm sure there are other countries that might not be cruiser friendly.

Re: Record Breaking Circumnavigation

Think he said the landlocked countries were out. He got spanked pretty good here, may have sailed elsewhere. His plans need a lot of fine-tuning. A boat would be helpful by my estimation.

Whatever happened to that Rimas guy?? I remember reading through about fifty pages on SA, and that was only when he arrived in Frisco, having been blown slightly off course from the Horn, or something like that.

Did he make circumnavigation for magnificent by sailing world record and write book??

Re: Record Breaking Circumnavigation

As a professional captain who did hundreds of deliveries way back when the pay was a measly $2 per mile, I could BANK 10k in just a few months or less. Are you only a part time delivery captain?
You could be working on a commercial fishing boat in Alaska, or rig boats, earning REAL sea time and a sh*t pot of money and not have to beg strangers to fund your playtime. I just don't see how you expect folks to fund your playtime when you aren't contributing at least the lion's share. One need not be rich to attain one's dreams, but if one isn't, then one should at least be willing to put in a lot of hard work towards that end.
I bought my first big boat, a 50' Rhodes cutter, for cash at 22. I worked the West Coast trollers and Alaska crab boats through high school and beyond to fund my dream of a circumnavigation, which I'd had since I was about 8, after reading Slocum's book. That circumnavigation took 9.5 years and sailing became my profession.
By the way, only amateurs count miles, not professionals. The guy driving the Staten Island ferry can put a lot of miles under his keel every year.
Time to close down the website and get to work earning the money you need.

That is the whole point of going for such a record. If it was easy, it would have been done long time ago.
If the dude gets discouraged by the bashing on Sailnet, he probably ain't the type that rounds the Horn.

Free Boat #1: San Juan 24 Cesura. Wrecked in Alaska and abandoned.

Free Boat #2: San Juan 24 Pier Pressure. Drifted to American Samoa, called for help to get towed in, and abandoned the boat.

Free Boat #3: Rawson 30 Mimsy. His anchor line chafed through and was unwilling or unable to start the engine or SAIL THE BOAT. He drifted from Sausalito, through the Golden Gate, out into the Pacific Ocean. He drifted down to Monteray Bay and remembered that he had a radio, where he called for help. The Coasties towed him in to Monterey, where he got a couple free days of emergency mooring. Then the harbor master told him that he had to either get out or start paying, so he [obviously] got towed out again and drifted to Hawaii, where he has officially abandoned boat #3.
