A working week – part two

28.3.09 – Saturday – Now that the boat is in the water, I can relax. That doesn’t mean sit around doing nothing!  The work never ends plus I started buying food for the two month ahead. It feels funny to buy 4 kg of rice, 4 of pasta and so on. Not very efficient buying big quantities when you are alone and your carrying capacity is limited, so I’ll do the rest of it when all the crew is on board. I think that I neglected to outline the plans for the future, so here they are: on Monday I fly back to Israel for 9 days, then on April 10th the crew for the South Pacific voyage will come to Puntarenas. We will be three on board: Steve Breitstein, Zvi Shaeffer (am I spelling it right?) and myself. I will dedicate a special post to the crew, in which I will give more information and, off course, pictures. We plan to leave Puntarenas around April 14th, sail to Cocos island, stay there for a day or two, possibly diving with “Undersea Hunter” . We will then continue to the Galapagos. Gili will join us there for the  tour of the islands that Steve arranged for us and after  that the three guys will take a deep breath and embark on a 3000 nautical miles voyage to the Marquesas, French Polynesia.

29.3.09 – Sunday –  Last day before I fly away and the word is “Cleanup”.  Not a very interesting subject,  I only want to present a question to all fellow sailors: Does your boat accumulates huge quantities of human hair in every nook and cranny  too?   Please let me know!                                                                                                                                                      Today there was an impressivly low tide, even “Two Oceans” settled on it’s two keels in the mud.  A trimaran ahead was practically in the air and a few monohulls leaned over to an alarming degree.

That’s it until April 10th!
