Re: Sailing across the Coral Sea, the beginning of an epic sailing adventure - Learni
Interesting vid, thanks for sharing. I'm curious about your relationship with Tom. What were you expecting from him at the start, an extra pair of hands, him able to do watches for you, or was he a tourist? Did you view him as an adult or was he a kid you were taking on a trip? Glad you guys both made it safely to your destination and impressive that you were able to single hand it the whole way. It must have been trying dealing with 1 out of 1 crew down for the count. I imagine it also must have been a real bad scene for Tom if he was just curled up in that bunk for 8 days straight, he could not have been in a good place. I imagine if he was seasick and it didn't abate for a week straight that would be pretty rough on a person, but I wasn't sure how much was physiological and how much was mental. A shame it went down that way but good on you for getting all safely to the destination through some tough weather.
