Sailors Run’s Bahia Caraquez Up Date. 6/1/15
Things are moving along at a good clip as far as getting Sailors Run ready to go for the Around the World Voyage. The two new sails are ordered and should be delivered in about 6-weeks to my address in the states. I’m currently hunting down all rusty hose clamps and changing them. I have retuned the rig and feel pretty good about that.
Sailors Run had a pretty good write up in a local newspaper and every since the day that was released, I now have a new friend Victor, who wanted to meet someone that was crazy enough to try a trip like I’m doing.
I again was interviewed by Latitude 38 out of San Francisco by phone,can go to
Victor is this great little older guy that shows up periodically bringing gifts and loves taking me around town taking pictures and introducing me to all his friends and relatives. This wasn’t so bad when Debbie was here, but now with my Spanish being poor and Victor speaking only Spanish that is very loud and rapid and I’m left at a loss for understanding, but what can one do when this is your #1 fan.
My running training is coming along well, and in about two days I have a race with “Chino” a 25-year old Ecuadorian that works here at Puerto Amistad. We are racing at 5pm and the distance is about 6-kilometers, I will let you know how the old man does in the next update.
Debbie is doing fine back in Albuquerque, New Mexico with her son and Grandson as well as her family I miss her greatly and things do get a little boring for me at times, but in the end it will all be worth it, to be able to take on such a great adventure
