OPINIONS, FACTS, STORIES AND WHAT’S NEW IN THE FASCINATING WORLD OF YACHTING


YACHTIE TYPES OLDEST DECKIE IN TOWN


“I have life experience,” says the guy who looks to be the same age as your dad, walking the docks with his white legs poking out of his sensible shorts. “And I’m not afraid of hard work.” Why has he left his job as an estate agent and decided to pursue his dream of working at sea 20 years later than he should have? Can you say ‘mid life crisis’? Bless him, he may say he’s happy to clean and polish for hours on end but is he really happy to share a cabin with a 22 yr old, take orders from a 25 yr old, and can he keep up on a night out? Bet that life experience will come in really handy as a chamois technician.


ROW YOUR BOAT Will Hollingshead, Chris Hodgson, Sam Coxon, Kevin Gaskell and Matt Gaskell all rowed across the Atlantic Ocean and broke the 5 man world record for fastest crossing, raising over £100,000 for the Plastic Soup Foundation in the process. Arriving in Antigua, they completed the trip in 35 days - think about that… Kinda puts your 20 mins on the rowing machine in the gym to shame a bit doesn’t it? Congrats lads!


OH. MY. GOD. A Friends reunion is finally happening. Can’t wait to see the cast and creators return for a one off special. Apparently not a new episode but it will be on the original set. Official sources say it was down to Jennifer Aniston who rallied the troops and got them all together to agree. Even though at the time they were ‘ON A BREAK’…

NAUTICAL ETYMOLOGY... IN THE OFFING


Meaning imminent or likely to happen soon. ‘Offing’ is that area of sea that can be seen from land, so when a ship was seen to be ‘in the offing’ it would be expected to dock before the next tide. ‘Off’ in a sailing context means ‘away from’.


Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.

THANK GOD Veganuary and Dry January are very distant memories. But orthorexia, an obsession with wellness and eating ‘healthy’ foods is now on the rise. Drop those diet fads and just eat healthy and listen to the chef when he tells you to eat your greens - simple. Plus, along with joining Joe Wicks every morning, or tuning in to Aaron Williamson, have we all hit a new health regime?


NAUTICAL HEROES CAPTAIN MATTHEW FLINDERS


Captain Matthew Flinders (16 March 1774 – 19 July 1814) was an English navigator and cartographer who led the second circumnavigation of New Holland that he would subsequently call “Australia or Terra Australis” and identified it as a continent. Abel Tasman had circumnavigated it more widely in 1642-43 and had charted its north coast in 1644. Flinders made three voyages to the southern ocean between 1791 and 1810. In the second voyage, George Bass and Flinders confirmed that Van Diemen’s Land (now Tasmania) was an island. In the third voyage, Flinders circumnavigated the mainland of what is now known as Australia, accompanied by Aboriginal man Bungaree.


TOE NAILS This is especially aimed at the boys. If you are to follow the summer trends and wear some slightly dodgy sliders or god forbid earthy type sandals - please, please, please, sort out your disgusting yellow mouldy feet. Its perfectly simple…. Exfoliate and clip those nails and moisturise.


2020 Well, what can we say about 2020 so far and we’re only half way through? Come back 2019 all is forgiven. Actually come back any other year. But seriously, there will be a ‘new normal’ what this will look like, we have no idea. But what ever happens, we must embrace and move forward. Be kind, be positive and think more about others.
