Jua Kali – ARC Race Blogs – Day 8
Todays blog from the good ship JK, weather at last is hot and sunny with a light breeze so drying out.
Here’s an update from our PYR Trainee – Marcus
Hi I’m Marcus a PYR trainee, I’m going to tell you a bit about our trip so far going across the pond.
What would you like to know?
Probably how easy going it is, the amazing food, good drinks, good sleep and good music. I can say some of that is true like the good music!
This is the longest period of time I have been on a boat without calling into port, before this it was about 6 days, so this is a little step up.
Do I mind it?
No not really. Its been a great trip so far with some advanced problems set like a couple storms producing big swells so the boat is keeled over so you can’t sleep! But hey, this sailing right?
The great things has been the good company, no one is hurt and we have blue skies and water around us. I’m away from technology, I don’t know what’s going on in the world or the latest face book update and its great! Being away from it all just opens up your brain and allows you time out of that 21st Century nonsense.
What could be better than sailing across the Atlantic ocean, fishing, going fast with good people? Not much I can say other than maybe a couple ladies on board would be nice not just 9 men on a 43 foot boat; but hey you win some and loose some!
If you are reading this and wondering if you should go on a trip like I’m doing right now then the answer is definitely Yes!
Why not? What have you got to loose? Not much maybe 15 to 20 days at sea and you could love it. So give it a go is all I would say.
