Ep. 53: Paul Trammell Reads Becoming a Sailor A Singlehand Sailing Adventure; Sailing Kittiwake Questions if Vlogging is a Goldmine; Another Rescue and Dismasting in the Golden Globe Race

October 26, 2018

In this episode, we feature Paul Trammell reading chapter 1 of Becoming a Sailor, A Singlehand Sailing Adventure. Linus Wilson talks about the latest dismasting (number four) of the solo-nonstop 2018 Golden Globe Race of French sailor Loic Lepage's yacht. Elana from Sailing Kittiwake reads her blog "Cruising Stories: Kittiwake on Having a YouTube Channel".

Becoming a Sailor, A Singlehand Sailing Adventure talks about Trammell's purchase and upgrades to Sobrius, a 1972 Dufour Arpege and his single-handed sailing around Florida and the Bahamas. Trammell plans to release his second book of his sailing adventures Journey to the Ragged Islands before Christmas 2018. Becoming a Sailor, A Singlehand Sailing Adventure is available on Amazon and Kobo:

My study on how much YouTube vloggers really make is 

Wilson, Linus, A Little Bit of Money Goes a Long Way: Crowdfunding on Patreon by YouTube Sailing Channels (February 17, 2017). Available at SSRN: https://ssrn.com/abstract=2919840 or http://dx.doi.org/10.2139/ssrn.2919840

Abstract

This study finds that YouTube channels crowdfunding on Patreon have more frequent video creation. The median YouTube channel that crowdfunded on Patreon produced a video every 7.5 days compared to 105 days for the median comparable channel that did not link to Patreon. Crowdfunders have more views per video, are more likely to link to their Facebook pages, and uploaded videos more frequently. While two channels in the sample, each earned over $150,000 in 2016 from Patreon, the typical crowdfunding sailing channel earned $73 per video, per month, or creation. It appears that a little bit of money was associated with a big increase in new video production.

I talked about the study in this video:

I also talked about the devastation to Panama City Marina in the following video:

https://youtu.be/upgYlrp2Ngg

"Sailboats WRECKED by Hurricane Michael in Panama City Marinas"

Category 4, 155 mph, Hurricane Micheal made landfall on October 10, 2018, in Mexico Beach, Florida. It devastated the marinas, boats, and sailboats in Panama City, Florida. You'll see the rescue of the crew of the sailing vessel Old School abandoned in 8-foot seas near Boca Grande, Florida, as the yacht was experiencing the outer bands of a major hurricane.

Sailing La Vagabonde recently asserted boaters have lots of advance warning to get out the way of Hurricane. The experience of Hurricane Michael disputes that claim in

Something happened that I never suspected. The blog surpassed the podcast this year in terms of views v. downloads. The blog at slowboatsailing.wordpress.com has 152K views with 234 posts. The Slow Boat Sailing Podcast has 118K downloads in 52 podcasts. The Slow Boat Sailing YouTube channel has 902K views from 100 public videos. I always expected the YouTube channel to have the greatest growth potential, but I never thought that blog could surpass the podcast. The blog was started as an afterthought, and its traffic was always low until the YouTube channel and thus the blog started focusing on news of interest to cruising sailors in September 2017.

Ep. 52: Abandon Ship, Dismasted in the GGR, the ADRIFT Movie, & Hurricane Florence Sinks Sailboats: Featuring Joy & Jim Carey and Sailing Banjo Interviewed by Linus Wilson

September 26, 2018

Joy and Jim Carey were 150 miles from their home port in Belingham Washington when they were struck by violent storm. A rougue wave filled their boat with water, knocked out the electronics, and nearly washed Jim overboard. Getting hypothermic with no other forms of communication, they pulled their EPIRB and abandoned their beloved sailing vessel Kelaerin. This tragic story has a happy ending. Listen to hear it.

Their blog is at http://cruisinginkelaerin.blogspot.com/

Linus Wilson also gives his review of the Adrift movie in episode 52 of the podcast. In the USA Adrift became available for rental in early September 2018. This is the blurb from its distributor STX entertainment:

"Starring Shailene Woodley (Fault in Our Stars, Divergent films) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games films), ADRIFT is based on the inspiring true story of two sailors who set out to journey across the ocean from Tahiti to San Diego.

Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn’t anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved.

ADRIFT is the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love."

Linus talks about the rescue of two Golden Globe Sailors rescued in the Indian Ocean. Abhilash Tomy was in 3rd place in the Golden Globe Race for small yachts on September 21, 2018, when his boat THURIYA was rolled and dismasted in 14-meter seas and 70-knot winds about 1,900 miles SW of Perth, Australia in the Southern Indian Ocean. Tomy had a sever back injury and could not move from his bunk. He set off his EPIRB manually, but was unable to cut away the dangerously dangling mast. This set off an international rescue of the French fisheries patrol vessel Osiris underway on September 24, 2018. 4th place competitor Irish skipper Gregor McGuckin was also rescued 30 miles west of Tomy by the Osiris. McGuckin's sailboat was dismasted and was sailing under jury rig. You can see our video about the rescue at

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGaL0KdDhXw

Hurricane Florence devastated the sailing community in New Bern, North Carolina with its ten-foot storm surge. You will see the destruction to boats in the historic city. You will see how the storm surge broke up the docks in Bridgepoint Marina and hear from a marina tenants Shawn and Shannon Yale of Sailing Banjo whose boat, SV Banjo, rode out the storm successfully on a Mantus Anchor.

Many boats were overturned in their stands from the rising storm surge in Duck Creek Marina near New Bern, NC. The C-dock near the Trent River Bridge at Bridgepoint Marina was almost completely destroyed at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent Rivers. Flooding from Hurricane Florence. See our video with Sailing Banjo about Hurricane Florence's impact on sailboats and the sailing community in New Bern, North Carolina.

Ep. 49: Adventures of An Old Seadog’s Barry Perrins and Sailing from Aitutaki to Tonga with Linus Wilson

June 28, 2018

Linus Wilson interviews solo-sailor and creator of Adventures of an Old Seadog sailing vlog on YouTube Barry Perrins. Barry Perrins sailed from England accross the Atlantic and beyond in his sailboat. He talks about his cruise of Portugal, Spain, the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, and Curacao. He was anchored next to the creators of RAN Sailing in Curacao when he was interviewed.

Linus also talks about his second longest offshore passage (900 nm) from Aitutaki, Cook Islands to Nuku'alofa, Tongatapu, Tonga. Linus passed up on Beveridge Reef and sailed into a cold front that stoped the Slow Boat's forward progress.The Raymarine and CPT Autopilots failed and the diesel engine got air in the lines and a broken bleed bolt knocked out the Yanmar diesel engine. That forced Linus to sail into anchor at Big Mama's Yacht Club in Tonga where Janna and Sophie will meet Linus in a few days.

Harry Pidgeon was the first man to sail around the world via the Panama Canal in a small sailboat or yacht. Unlike Joshua Slocum he pioneered the most popular round the world sailing circumnavigation route which passes through the Panama Canal and under the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Agulhas.

GET AROUND THE WORLD SINGLE-HANDED by Harry Pidgeon in eBook at
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C3THFZV

Joshua Slocum was lost at sea before the Panama Canal was built and had to sail through the Straits of Magellan in Patagonia. Harry Pidgeon was a farmer from Iowa who built a wooden, engine-less boat on the beach in Los Angeles, California. It was a 34-foot gaff-rigged yawl called, the ISLANDER. Harry Pidgeon was the first man to sail around the world twice in a yacht, and the second to sail around the world alone in a small sailboat. He sailed to Hawaii, the Marquesas, Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, the New Hebrides, New Guinea, the Torres Straight, Australia, Kupang, Indonesia, Christmas Island, Cocos-Keeling, Durbin, Cape Town, South Africa, St. Helena, Ascension Island, Trinidad, and many other ports on his 1921-1924 circumnavigation. He was awarded the Blue Water Medal for his amazing solo-circumnavigation. Harry survived boarding by cannibals, a collision with an oil tanker, and shipwreck in Africa. He was one to hold fast regardless of the hardship with good cheer. Pidgeon's voyage puts him on par with sailing firsts like that of Sir Robin Knox Johnston who was the first man to sail around the world alone (non-stop) in the 1968 Golden Globe race.

Ep. 46: Sailboat Sunk 2 Days Into Dream Cruise when Its Keel Falls Off, Nikki Walsh and Tanner Broadwell Speak to Linus Wilson

March 1, 2018

Nikki Walsh and Tanner Broadwell bought at $5,000 1969 Columbia 28-foot sailboat to sail around the world. Their trip lasted 2 days. In the end the boat sunk to the bottom of the ocean. They departed Tarpon Springs, Florida. By 9PM on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, their boat was at the bottom of the sea. They were able to save their dog, a dinghy, and their IDs before abandoning ship to a SeaTow. See our video of this at

Couple's SAILBOAT Sinks TWO DAYS After Departing When Keel Falls Off | Exclusive Interview

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7fLn5DItPw

The boat lost its keel when they were motoring 2 miles per hour in the John’s channel off Tampa Bay, Florida. The boat filled with water within 10 minutes as water seeped up from the bottom of the boat and rested on the sea floor in 3-feet of water. The next day the boat turned on its side. Tanner said that someone is offering to give them a new boat, but they have started a $10,000 GoFundMe campaign to pay their salvage expenses and buy a new floating home. They estimate the salvage costs at $6,700 and they have no insurance. The 24-year old woman and 26-year old man lost their life savings. The link to that campaign is below:
https://www.gofundme.com/new-sailing-life
The 49-year old boat had plenty of electronic and paper charts for the area. It only had a 6-horse power outboard for power, which worked until the boat sunk. It is somewhat common for old sailboats to have keel bolts give way and for the keel to fall off if they are not inspected regularly.
Nikki and Tanner learned to sail from Tanner’s dad and by sailing on friends’ boats. They bought SV Lagniappe in Fairhope, Alabama near mobile. Tanner and his Dad sailed the boat to Destin, Florida where Nikki sailed the boat to Panama City, Florida. From Panama City, Florida the three people and one dog sailed the 49-year old boat for 3 and a half days offshore to Tarpon Springs, Florida in June 2017. Nikki and Tanner spent $5,000 fixing up the boat until they departed for Key West, Florida in February. They spent one night at anchor before disaster struck and their beloved sailboat sunk, wrecked, and was a total loss. They used to live in Colorado before living aboard their sailboat in Tarpon Springs.

One lesson from this disaster and the wreck of the Tanda Malaika, whose captain Dan Govatos was a guest of the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast, is that entering an unfamiliar harbor at night is a bad idea. More cruisers should heed that rule of thumb.
https://adventuresofatribe.com/2017/07/23/mayday/
Tanner says she idolizes the crew of the YouTube channels Sailing La Vagabonde and Slow Boat Sailing Podcast guests Sailing SV Delos. Tanner was wearing a Sailing La Vagabonde t-shirt when their boat sunk near Tampa Bay.

On May 15, 2017, Lewis Bennett told US Coast Guard rescuers that his wife, Isabella Hellman, fell overboard while he slept in the 37-foot sailing catamaran on their honeymoon trip from St. Marteen to Key West.

SAILING MYSTERY, GHOST BOAT, SEA NYMPH, found in VOR | Exclusive GPS data & USCG survivor debrief

https://youtu.be/bK7BM8JsX_M

Volvo Ocean Racers spotted a “ghost ship”, a derelict sailboat, 360 miles east of Guam on February 13, 2018, UTC. It was none other than the SV Sea Nymph abandoned by Jennifer Appel and her crew member Tasha Fuiava nearly 3 to 4 months earlier on October 25, 2017. We discuss the latest revelations from this mysterious disaster at sea. We bring you exclusively the interview of the sailors on the doomed sailors who were criticized by the US Coast Guard for not using her EPIRB. The USCG alleges via the AP that they hailed the Sea Nymph on June 15, 2017, near Tahiti. Ms. Appel told the Today Show that they were no where near Tahiti and her handheld GPS proves that. Linus Wilson was given her handheld GPS track history and analyzed it. It only had two days of data, the last two days prior to the rescue. This tale of two women and two dogs where rescued 900 miles southeast of Japan goes on...

Linus finds a jungle of mold on the Slow Boat when he returns after 5 months. He goes to sea unprepared to avoid the bugs, mud, and torrential rains in Hiva Oa in the Marquesas. His sailboat lacks a sail and several things are not tied down as he flees the crowded anchorage of Tahauku Bay near Atuona. Linus has to transport the only potable water one liter at a time in a mad rush to flee the waterlogged French Polynesian island.  He also replaces another battery because it became waterlogged. Linus and Daly (the dog) sail to Tahuata's paradise of clear blue water and white sand beaches, Hanamoenoa Bay.

Ep. 45: Crowhurst Movie Director Simon Rumley Talks about the Greatest Fraud in Sailing History

February 3, 2018

Simon Rumley directed the Crowhurst movie about Donald Crowhurst, who pretended to sail around the world in the 1968 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race. In that race roughly a dozen men competed for two prizes to be the first man to circumnavigate the globe solo and non-stop and the fastest man to sail solo non-stop around the world. He discusses the strange story of Donald Crowhurst who filed false position reports after he believed his boat was not seaworthy enough to sail around the world solo, non-stop in the Southern Ocean and around Cape Horn.

The Crowhurst movie is distributed by StudioCanal UK which is also distributing The Mercy (2018) starring Rachel Weisz and Colin Firth premiering in the UK on February 9, 2018. The Crowhurst Movie is likely to become available in March 2018 in the UK and later worldwide. 

StudioCanal UK's production notes for The Mercy (2018) describe the story of Donald Crowhurst below:

Donald Crowhurst was born near Delhi in British colonial India in 1932 to John and Alice Crowhurst. At the age of eight he was sent to an Indian boarding school where he would spend nine months of the year. Two years later, his parents moved to Western Pakistan. After the Second World War, aged fourteen, Donald was sent back to England to board at Loughborough College. His parents returned to England in 1947 when India gained Independence from Britain and the Partition took place. His father ploughed all of his retirement savings into an ill-fated business deal in the new territory of Pakistan. The Crowhurst’s life in post-war England was a far cry from colonial life. The lack of funds forced Donald to leave Loughborough College at the age of sixteen once he passed his School Certificate, and sadly John Crowhurst died in March 1948.

After starting as an apprentice in electronic engineering at the Royal Aircraft Establishment Technical College in Farnborough, Donald went on to join the RAF in 1953; he learned to fly and was commissioned. He enjoyed the life of a young officer and was described by many as charming, warm, wild, brave and a compulsive risk-taker who defied authority and possessed a madcap sense of humour. After he was asked to leave the RAF, he promptly enlisted in the army, was commissioned and took a course in electronic control equipment. He resigned from the army in 1956 and went on to carry out research work at Reading University aged twenty-four.

Crowhurst is remembered as being quite dashing and he caught the attention of his future wife Clare at a party in Reading in 1957. Clare was from Ireland and had been in England for 3 years. Apparently he told her that she would “marry an impossible man”. He said he would never leave her side and took her out the very next evening. Theirs was a romantic, whirlwind courtship that took place over the spring and summer of 1957. They married on 5th October and their first son, James was born the following year. It was at this time that Crowhurst began sailing seriously.

He secured a job with an electronics firm called Mullards but left after a year and aged twenty-six, he became Chief Design Engineer with another electronics company in Bridgwater, Somerset. His real dream was to invent his own electronic devices and he would spend hours of his spare time tinkering with wires and transistors creating gadgets. He also found solace in sailing his small, blue, 20-foot boat, Pot of Gold.

Crowhurst designed the Navicator, a radio direction-finding device for yachting and set up his company Electron Utilisation to manufacture and market the gadget. Donald and Clare’s family expanded with the arrival of Simon in 1960, Roger in 1961 and Rachel in 1962 and they lived happily in the Somerset countryside.

When Electron Utilisation hit financial difficulty, Crowhurst was introduced to Taunton businessman, Stanley Best, who agreed to back the company and Best eventually 
sponsored Crowhurst’s attempt to circumnavigate the world in the trimaran Teignmouth Electron.

With the Empire gone, in 1960s Britain there developed a phenomenon where men sought adventure, recognition and heroism. Sending men to the moon was something Britain couldn’t afford, so instead, heroes came in the form of people like Francis Chichester who was the first person to tackle a single-handed circumnavigation of the world, starting and finishing in England with one stop in Sydney. Upon his return in 1967, Chichester was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and instantly became a national hero.

Capitalising on this wave of interest in individual round the world voyages, The Sunday Times sponsored the Golden Globe race, a non-stop, single-handed round the world yacht race. No qualifications were required for entrants but the rule was that they had to depart between 1st June and 31st October 1968 in order to pass through the Southern Ocean in summer. The trophy would be awarded to the first person to complete the race unassisted via the old clipper route, of the great Capes: Good Hope, Leeuwin and Horn. The newspaper also offered a cash prize of £5000 for the fastest single-handed navigation.

Nine sailors started the race, four retired before leaving the Atlantic Ocean. Chay Blyth who had no previous sailing experience, retired after passing the Cape of Good Hope. Nigel Tetley was leading the race but sank with 1,100 nautical miles to go. Frenchman Bernard Moitessier rejected the commercial nature of the race, so abandoned it but continued sailing, completing the circumnavigation and carried on half way around the globe again.

Donald Crowhurst’s Teignmouth Electron was discovered mid-Atlantic, 1,800 miles from England at 7.50am on 10th July 1969 by the Royal Mail vessel, Picardy that was en route from London to the Caribbean. On inspection, the trimaran was deserted and a subsequent US Air Force search for Crowhurst followed to no avail.

British sailor Robin Knox-Johnston was the only entrant to complete the race. He was awarded both prizes and subsequently donated his £5000 prize money to Clare Crowhurst and the Crowhurst children.

Director James Marsh carried out painstaking research and delved deep into the heart and soul of what made Donald Crowhurst tick: “If I can speculate on Crowhurst’s background and his experience, he seemed to have a series of failures, if you like, and he escaped the failure by rolling the dice bigger on the next adventure. He was a man of enormous energy and charm and that energy and charm led him into decisions like the ones he made in joining the race, for example. He had enormous self-belief as well, and people around him substantiated that. He managed to fund and build that boat, so there’s a danger of overlooking what he achieved in this story as well as what he didn’t achieve. He achieved enormous amounts”.

“He was a fairly inexperienced sailor but he wasn’t as inexperienced as some people think he was. He hadn’t sailed the ocean properly, yet he built this very fast trimaran, but the boat wasn’t fully tested and finished. He made a pretty good go at sailing round the world – he stayed out in the ocean for the best part of seven months so all in all, he achieved much more than people ever thought he could, he just didn’t achieve what his objective was. It was a case of over-reach, it was hubris and that is what caused the tragedy of his demise”, concludes Marsh.

The research materials available on Crowhurst were “endless” says James Marsh, “there are quite a few books out there and great raw materials that he left behind, his logbooks, his diaries and letters he wrote to his wife”.

In the course of the research, Marsh also read a lot about psychology and about isolation, “You can read about what happens to prisoners who are on their own for six months and what that does to their minds. I made a documentary about a chimpanzee and he went mad within three days. There’s something about us as animals that are entirely social”.

Marsh found Crowhurst’s logbooks to be one of the most fascinating elements of research “because they’re the real thing when they’re not the real thing, he’s disguising the real thing. You can perceive the real story through the disguise”.

“I would drive around the country looking at locations listening to Crowhurst’s tapes” recalls Marsh, “He sings on the tapes, mostly sea shanties and he speculates about the state of the world, about politics, about his own life. It’s extraordinary really, some of that is a persona but some of it also is the truth. That’s the great joy of this kind of film – you get a chance to research and the more you know the more you want to know”.

The public persona Donald Crowhurst created through his tape recordings and the way he talks to his family and people on dry land were, according to James Marsh, “increasingly divorced from what he was feeling and experiencing. In our portrayal, he becomes primitive essentially. He’s stripped of civilisation and becomes much more elemental and that’s shown in his physicality, he loses weight, doesn’t wear as many clothes and starts to look like a vagabond on the boat. The mental journey is much more interesting than the physicality and we just had to bring that to the character”.

“There are entries in the logbooks and in the tape recordings that he became aware of the cosmic reality of where he was.” comments Marsh. “No-one behaved rationally after a certain point in that race. Moitessier lost his mind a bit too – he went round again! Robin Knox-Johnston was perhaps the exception but his boat was in a very strange state when he came back to the British coastline. All in all, no-one was spared by this journey”.

“The sea is like a desert. It’s also mercurial, it has moods, it changes, and it threatens you. But, all you’re seeing is a horizon and a sky. The sea changes colour, it can be stormy and it has this sort of personality that can destroy you,” muses Marsh. “The isolation is a huge part of what goes wrong in Crowhurst’s mind. Your brain chemistry changes when you don’t speak to people”.

When a real-life character is portrayed on screen, there comes a certain responsibility to the memory of the person and to the feelings of loved ones. James Marsh doesn’t think there is any ‘definitive’ version of any true story, “that’s the great virtue of true stories, you can interpret them this way or that way, endlessly”. He says The Mercy is “a version of a story that we think has some truth to it. There’s no definitive version apart from the reality of what actually happened. You capture and distil it somehow into a dramatic form or a documentary form. There is a duty to respect that character and to be sympathetic. Colin and I both respect that – we both really liked Crowhurst, we felt we knew enough about him to go on with this story and get to the truth of it. Colin plays him with such sympathy and such careful precise emotional progression, which is totally profound”.

“A lot of artists became quite obsessed with Donald Crowhurst” notes Rachel Weisz who plays his wife Clare in The Mercy, “I actually think this story is a very loving portrait of him and his ambitions. There’s a kind of Donald Crowhurst in all of us, we all dream of some kind of glory. I think in the culture we live in now, we’re encouraged to reach beyond our lot or our station. Crowhurst could have made it and it would be a very different story. At the time, there was perhaps this notion that he’d cheated and lied, but I don’t really feel the story’s about that. It’s about somebody who is a dreamer and he gets caught up in a kind of white lie. Everybody exaggerates a little bit now and then to suit his or her story but obviously, this is a very extreme version of it, therefore it makes good drama. I think Donald Crowhurst is immensely human and relatable. He’s not a strange, un-understandable being. I think he’s very understandable. I think the essence of the film is celebrating him as a kind of romantic hero. I hope his family might feel that too, because that’s my feeling about the film” concludes Weisz.

Here are some blogs that Linus Wilson has written about the strange last voyage of the SV Sea Nymph, a 45-foot sailboat owned by Jennifer Appel, which were mentioned in the podcast:
