Prima dată când navighează pe ocean - Traversarea barului și învățarea să navighez pe noua mea casă plutitoare

În sfârșit, înapoi pe Misty my 26′ International Folkboat. Sunt aproape un începător în navigație, așa că încă învățăm pe măsură ce mergem, dar cred că sunt aproape gata să ies în ocean pentru o mare aventură pe coasta de est a Australiei și să găsesc o nouă acostare în apropierea unor insule tropicale.

  1. I almost traded my motorcycle for a 27 foot 1980 Chrysler at one point….was going to wing it and just live on it… I just couldn't find a slip for it… I wish I had done it though

  2. Dude! When solo sailing you should ALWAYS be clipped into lifelines. Run a line on both sides from cockpit to bow and you tether yourself to that. That way any time you go forward you are still physically connected to the boat.

  3. I got a boat 2 years ago Albin Vega 27 . And doing a bit like you . Learning by doing.. I dream to cross the ocean one day. I am in Den Helder Nederland now . The north zee Where I practice and prepare the boat for the adventure. .I enjoy you show.

  4. The jib should face nearly into the wind. Don't just cinch it tight for all circumstances. This is a rookie mistake and I did it too in the beginning. A leaning boat is not moving as fast as it should. Figure out the sails to keep the boat upright as much as possible. Think of the sails as being airplane wings, not wind catchers.

  5. Ok so under power youre being oushed from the back. Like a shopping cart going backwards.
    Under sail the wind puts rhe pressure on the surface as it is opposed to the keel underneath. Basically acting like a wing. The boat will rock less from the constant pressure on the sail.
    My guilty pleasure is the vibration of the power transferred from the sail to the hull….

  6. Dear rod I'm just an old guy here in California Oregon but you're doing everything correctly. You are working at your new found education conservatively and that's wonderful. We learn mostly by doing rather than reading books. Your adventure spirit is clearly showing…. I've been around boats and living on boats in California for over 50 years. You are an inspiration to the young people who want to do this keep up the wonderful work blessings to you in yours

  7. ? Prob a stupid one I live in the mtns of wv I've been on a boat in the lakes and rivers but on the ocean if you get caught in a boat in a storm what do you do pull your sails and pray I respect the sea farrier takes balls loved the vid

  8. Wee suggestion, check out putting wools or tell tales up the luff of your sails. it makes sail trimming easy and when heaving to, the tiller is pointed down wind so that the boat is trying to come round and tack but the back winded headsail prevents that happening. I went through the same experiences with a little 24 foot ply yacht in the seventies. You are doing great, good luck.

  9. Great videos, keep them as they are – so many videos are ruined with slick editing and music nobody wants to hear. You have a great rapport with your audience, I enjoy being onboard. I've sailed for many years, but really enjoy your enthusiasm and willingness to learn as you go along. Well done !

  10. Hi Rokkit I am a retired commercial fisherman and I too am leaning to sail. My neighbor is a sail instructor and professional Capt. He's not just neighbor he's also my friend.

    Here's a few things that I have learned. 1 never let your lines hit the water there as nothing worse than getting a line caught in the prop.

    Your winches are two speed if you go one direction your winch is one to one ( that's speed ) when you go the other direct that's your power ( that helps you trim the sails )

    We like to take the gib sheet and the furler and throw them down the causeway. This keeps " ass holes" out of your lines ( yes that's a thing! ) Thats what the twiste's ( beginning's of knots ) are called.

    You can also throw your lines behind your or you can use your winches by looping the line over the winch in uniform loose loops. This way you can either throw the line behind you or down the causeway ( keeping ass holes out of your line ) so you can work quickly and efficiently.

    Your winches are most powerful with three wraps of line around them. On the starboard side ( right side ) wrap your line around the winch counter clockwise and on the port side ( left ) wrap your line around the winch clockwise.

    Always wrap your gib sheets twords you.

    And one more thing very important! If you think it's time to reef your main and your gib then your too late.

    Get used to being happy sailing at 80% … ⛵🤘💯🤘😊✌️
