July 9th 2020 02:28 AMKirsten Neuschäfer is on a roll announcing her boat for the #GGR2022
Kirsten Neuschäfer is on a roll announcing her boat for the #GGR2022 She has carefully selected a CAPE GEORGE 36. When you get to know her you see serious experience and a person at one with the oceans of the world. She is a sailor who knows boats and where she is going. This is going to be another interesting story!…and that is what the Golden Globe Race is all about.
June 30th 2020 06:00 AMTHIS IS A MUST LISTEN!!
THIS IS A MUST LISTEN!! Two years on and Susie Goodall for the first time ever has spoken openly in detail about her #GGR2018 experience, that storm and the effect it has had on her life then and now. Two years on and not a day goes by that she dose not think about the GGR. Her final comments in this podcast are very poignant. This is a true insight into an amazing lady…I was fascinated listening to this and for the sailors it is full of useful information. She now regrets deploying the Series Drogue not because it broke, but she feels she would have had a better chance sailing on. Thanks Susie. The podcast is here and it starts about 22 minutes in…

I can never get enough of Jean Luc, who each time reveals more about himself and his philosophy and gives great advice in this to young people. His book is to be traslated to Italian. What would HE recommend to young people who want to approach deep sea sailing and solo crossings? Jl VDH:“Today we cannot discover something truly new on the planet, we know all the corners of the Earth but there are always passions to cultivate. What I recommend to young people is to have a passion, there is nothing more terrible than not having desires. The problem when wishes are easily fulfilled is to deprive oneself of desire, of the desire to do, to obtain a result. I find that having a passion in life is important. The second piece of advice that I allow myself to give is to try to preserve optimism: we are in a world where pessimism, negativity are cultivated. While we forget the positive things, we forget that we can be happy already for the gift of life.”
