Inspirational Sailor
05 Dec 2006, Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico

It's always inspiring to hear of people pushing the boundaries - all the more so when they are suffering from serious disability. I was invited today to crew on a mother ship for a quadriplegic sailor, Geoff Holt, who is aiming to sail around the coast of Britain - a challenge I would find impossible even with the use of all my limbs.

Unfortunately my schedule won't allow me to take up the invitation, but I've done what I can by making a contribution to RYA Sailability, Geoff's chosen charity. If you want to support him too, then click here to go to his JustGiving page.

Gone Motoring
04 Dec 2006, between La Cruz and the Santa Marieta Islands, Mexico

We've spent the day motor-sailing very sedately over to the booby-haven islands about 12 miles from La Cruz. I wish our slow pace was because we're so chilled out, but in fact it's because the wind is almost non-existent, and our depleted electronics will only allow us to run on one engine rather than two.

Still, it was a worthwhile journey - fun to scramble up the rocks to see booby birds of various stages of maturity and various colours of feet - red, yellow and blue.

Man, this pace is so slooooww. But still twice as fast as I went in my rowboat, with a lot more miles to cover. The ocean certainly does teach patience.

Gone Sailing
03 Dec 2006, La CRuz

Most of Jangada's electrics are still not working. We managed to scavenge a depth sounder and a VHF radio, but still have no autopilot, wind instruments or refrigerator. But we'd had enough of hanging out in 'Paradise Village' ('they paved paradise, and put up a parking lot'...) so we cast off the mooring lines and took our lightning-damaged craft on a little jaunt up the coast to La Cruz. As we left Nuevo Vallarta a whale spouted and showed off his huge tail fluke a few hundred feet away. Birds flew in single line formation low over the waves. The sun shone. It felt good to be out on the water. This is, after all, what we came here for, not to spend day after day messing around with melted marine electronics.
