Turtle Rescue | Sailing Zingaro shorts

What we found 130 miles out to sea will shock you. While sailing to the most remote island in Central America, these sailors come across a turtle caught up in a fisherman’s long line. We jump in to help the little guy out.

Join us on our longest journey ever! 1,000nm from Costa Rica to Ecuador via Isla Del Coco …

Hauling out the boat in Costa Rica

beaching the boat

After beaching the boat for two days straight (3am-2pm) there was just too much wave action to get the bottom painted.

So we bit the bullet and paid $900 for a week on land. Lots of work to do, paint, repair, straighten the bent rudder and bent port strut (that is not perfect from last haulout).

While James is working on the boat, Kim is just travelling back from Berlin to Costa Rica. Arrival in San Josè: this evening. 🙂

Costa Rica – the world’s first decarbonised country?

Carlos Alvarado, Costa Rica’s new President said: “Decarbonisation is the great task of our generation and Costa Rica must be one of the first countries in the world to accomplish it, if not the first.”

The small country in Central America is well-known for its environmental commitment: Costa Rica already generates more than 99 percent of its electricity by using renewable energy sources.

That`s great!

Sailing Zingaro’s Fundraising Campaign

Every purchase goes toward a watermaker for Zingaro, so we can check out some of the more remote areas of the world (Chile, Easter Island …). Water is our limiting factor at the moment, and with your help, we’re going to fix that! James will make his own 12v 5A homemade watermaker for ~$1800, and of course make a how-to video to share with everyone on YouTube.

Sailing Zingaro Crew Shirts are available in various styles and colours. Take a look at bonfire.com/germaid/
