Iridium TEXT messages…

You will need my sat phone number which you can get by emailing me. Although the screen will say 160 chars - I only get the first 108 (...its the usual IT screw up)







There are a number of good sailors following the blog – so I don’t want any lip from any of you about genoa cars; luffing sails; traveler to windward/leeward and so on…. the only criticism that I acknowledge is ….why oh why don’t I put those mooring lines away in a locker instead of leaving them in the cockpit all the time …. I must get over this….

Complaints received:

  1. Why don’t I spend the first day I arrive somewhere editing video; adding sound; special effects and commentary…. then load up my laptop in a backpack and go wandering about looking for decent wifi connections to upload video……?
  2. They are not exciting enough – why cant I walk to the back of the boat in a storm; fix the camera up carefully getting the angle right; and then go and do something exciting in the middle of the storm…?
