Ep. 42: Rescued Hawaii Sailor Jennifer Appel Talks About Cruising in Her Two Doomed Boats with Linus Wilson

November 28, 2017

Jennifer Appel talks about her ten years of sailing prior to her rescue by the USS Ashland on October 25, 2017, about 900 miles from Japan. She confirms that her boat was a Charlie Morgan designed Starratt and Jenks 45 sailboat despite her assertions to the media it was 50 feet long. She talks about the wreck of her Coranado 34 sailboat in 2012 and the hull modifications that she made to the SV Sea Nymph which she abandoned on October 25, 2017. This skype interview was conducted while Appel and Tasha Fuiava were in Long Island, New York just after Thanksgiving 2017. 

In the patron-only bonus interview Ms. Appel tells Slow Boat Sailing that her boat lacked charts which would allow her to see the depths in the anchorages in Christmas Island, Kiribati, the northern Cook Islands, and Wake Islands. She has said they passed close to all three places after their spreader was damaged without stopping. See

The SailTimer Wind Instrument™ is a wireless, solar-powered masthead anemometer.  There are no wires to install down the mast.  It is the first anemometer designed for sailboats, with wind cup blades that maintain equal accuracy when sailing along heeled over.  It is submersible, so even works great on sailing dinghies, since it does not require a 12-volt battery.  But on boats large and small, it works with a range of apps, and continues to gain new features as more apps support it and add new functions.  This means that it is not a one-time purchase;  you can wake up tomorrow, and it can do things that it did not do today.  There is also an accessory that can receive the wireless transmissions and wire in to your NMEA network, for displaying the wind speed and direction on wired marine electronics.  This also happens to be the only masthead anemometer that you can raise even if your boat is already in the water, without needing to lower or climb the mast.  It is also the first masthead anemometer that has a digital compass built right in to the wind directoin arrow. No calibration required;  it knows which way it is pointing.  This is also a connected device, allowing you to share wind conditions and location online.  That is a handy safety feature like a float plan, but can also let you be at home and check live wind conditions on your boat.

Ep. 41: HOAX? Sailboat Rescue Story Has Many Problems Hosted by Linus Wilson

November 5, 2017

Two Hawaiian sailors rescued off Japan by the US Navy told some tall tales about their ordeal at sea in stories covered by all the major news networks.

The youtube video of this discussion is at 

https://youtu.be/vYQLT4jxAcM

They said they sailed through a force 11 storm and saw 50-foot sharks in the "Devils Triangle," but those tales were false. The U.S. Navy rescued two Hawaiian women and two dogs off at 50-foot (or 37-foot) sailboat 900 miles from Japan. Jennifer Appel (the captain and owner of SV Sea Nymph) and Natash "Tasha" Fuiava were rescued 900 miles southeast of Japan and thousands of miles off course from their destination in Tahiti. They said they set off 10 flares, waved a white flag, and made VHF distress calls for 98 days before they were towed by the Taiwanese fishing vessel the Fong Chun No. 66 and then Ms. Appel swam over and used the fishing boat's satellite phone to call for rescue. Why did they not use their EPIRB to signal for rescue 99 days earlier?

We look at the NOAA weather data, tiger shark tale,(which resembles the book and movie Jaws), the decision to not use the EPIRB, the failure to stop at the excellent anchorage in Kiritimati, Kiribati, Christmas Island, the non-lying explanations for the 10-knot current, and GPS and communications gear on the sailboat. Ms. Appel has been made the most famous sailor in the USA by sloppy reporting and poor coordination by the US Navy and the USCG investigating this case. Was this a mayday hoax, which is a felony under federal law? The United States Coast Guard district 14 in Honolulu is not at the time of investigating what led to the expensive US Navy rescue despite many inconsistencies and fabrications in the story.

Ep. 39: Wrecked in Key West, Capt. Mark J. Reinhardt, Speaks After Hurricane Irma to Linus Wilson

October 1, 2017

Capt. Mark J. Reinhardt lost his moored boat in Key West to Hurricane Irma. Capt. Mark J. Reinhardt estimated that 80 percent of the boats in the mooring field of Garrison Bite of Key West were wrecked in his interview on the Slow Boat Sailing podcast episode 39. The Slow Boat was moored in that same mooring field in 2015. Capt. Reinhardt sold everything and fixed up his Ericson 39 sailboat which he cruised the Bahamas in before settling in Key West. He rode out Hurricane Irma on a powerboat that he delivered to Fort Lauderdale. He then had a harrowing journey by sea getting back to his boat in Key West only to find his boat a total loss.

The Virgin Islands, Florida Keys, and Puerto Rico have been ravaged by the category 5 hurricanes Maria and Irma. We survey their path of destruction and weigh the costs of these monster hurricanes. The Slow Boat Sailing podcast host Linus Wilson tells how Sailing Doodle's boat Ruff Seas was dismasted in San Juan Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria. Check out Sailing Doodles' episodes 34 on the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast on apple podcasts, stitcher, or Google play for Android.

Ep. 38: Houston Boat Show Talk of How to Sail Around the World Part-Time by Linus Wilson

September 1, 2017

Linus Wilson talks about his book How to Sail Around the World Part-Time in a seminar at the Southwestern International Boat Show in League City, Texas in April 2017. This show too place at the South Shore Marina off of Clear Lake near the Kemah Boardwalk area. Linus, Janna, and Sophie visited the boardwalk as well as participated in the seminar. You can hear and see the slides from this seminar in this YouTube video below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZK9pCIZD77A

How to Sail Around the World Part-Time is a former Amazon sailing bestseller. It's description says:

"Do you dream of sailing around the world in a sailboat?
Do you have a business or career you don't want to sacrifice for that dream?
Do you have kids in school?
You don't need to quit your job, sell your house, and take the kids out of school to complete a circumnavigation of the globe in a sailboat. You don’t have to wait until you are retired to sail for the South Pacific. This book tells you how you can do it without uprooting your life by taking as little as two months per year off to sail the trade winds.
Circumnavigating the globe in a sailboat is on par with scaling Mount Everest in terms of its rarity. Many potential circumnavigators are hobbled by misconceptions about the journey that mountaineers lack when climbing to the top of the world.
It is said, “I want to circumnavigate to see the world.” Nevertheless, successful trade wind circumnavigators don’t see the world. Instead, they travel on a narrow ribbon around it stopping mostly at a narrow range of countries that are downwind. Lack of focus causes many more failed circumnavigations than storms at sea.
The conventional wisdom is that you need to quit your job, sell your house, and live on the boat year-round. The reality is that even retirees circumnavigating full-time keep their boat in port half of the year because of the demands of cyclone season. There is no good way to elude the November to April cyclone season that dominates 60 percent of the trade-wind circumnavigation route.
The mad rush from the eastern Caribbean to the “safe” ports in New Zealand and Australia in a single calendar year is misguided. It sets cruisers up for hard, upwind ocean passages in future years and saps the resolve of their crews. A better solution is to haul out their boats in the South Pacific and fly back to their homes in the developed world during the cyclone season.
It makes more sense to keep one’s job and home and take annual two-to-six month leaves of absences to move the boat forward during the cruising season. Learn about the trade-wind route around the world with stops in Panama, the Galapagos, the Marquesas, Tahiti, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Australia, Mauritius, Chagos, Madagascar, South Africa, St. Helena, Brazil, and the eastern Caribbean. Learn why the Pirate attacks in the Gulf of Aden have NOT made circumnavigating the globe harder.
This is the second book by the bestselling author of Slow Boat to the Bahamas, Linus Wilson. Dr. Wilson got his doctorate in financial economics at Oxford University. He sails an Island Packet 31’ with his wife, daughter, and four pound poodle. He has been published in Cruising Outpost and Good Old Boat magazines.

Ep. 37: Mayday! Shipwrecked on a reef in the South Pacific. Dan Govatos of www.adventuresofatribe.com interviewed by Linus Wilson on the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast

August 1, 2017

A few weeks ago the crew of the Tanda Malaika crashed onto a reef near the southern tip of Huahine in the Society Islands of French Polynesia. The family of six was rescued by helicopter and their 46-foot Leopard sailing catamaran was a total loss. Indeed, they are required to pay to tow their wrecked boat out to sea. Linus, Janna, and Sophie met the Tanda Malaika crew days before the wreck in Papeete, Tahiti. Linus Wilson talks to the skipper and dad Dan Govatos about the accident.

Subscribe to the Slow Boat Sailing Podcast on Stitcher and iTunes!

Linus outlines three decisions that he believed contributed to the wreck.

  1. They should not have tried to enter an unfamiliar harbor at night. In daylight they could have seen the breakers. An overly optimistic sailing plan ran late, and Mr. Govatos did not heave to or turn around when they were running late. They hit the reef more than three hours after sunset.
  2. They had too much faith in unreliable electronic charts. In the final seconds, depth sounder readings were ignored.
  3. They were too close to shore. 200 foot depths in the South Pacific are too close to shore especially at night at an unfamiliar landfall. The sea is steep and the difference between 200 foot depths and exposed reef can be less than one-hundred feet in many places. His decision to hug the reef was do to the rough seas, which could be expected from the pre-departure forecast of 20-25 knot winds. 

Many cruisers in French Polynesia make the first mistake according to Linus, but few pay as steep a price as Mr. Govatos and his family. This is a sad story and our hearts go out to the Govatos family in this difficult time. The podcast's episode 37 Patreon revenues are being donated to the GoFundMe campaign to help the Govatos/Willis family pay for the sinking of their boat and their flights back to the USA.

When they were salvaging the wreck the Tanda Mailaka was on the reef at 16 degrees 49'41" South and 150 degrees 59"41" West on the southern tip of the reef of Huahine.
