Zingaro suffered catastrophic damage in a storm on route to Hawaii. In this live stream we will update You about our current situation.
Our floating home has broken in two pieces. With the help of our Patrons and friends, we will find a new, stronger Zingaro 2.0 and take it on a new adventure.
Finally we found the courage to go back to the marina in Kona and have a sober look at Zingaro. Without the adrenaline the boat looks horrible.
The boat is in a disastrous shape. All the cross stringers in the starboard hull are broken, bridgedeck is ripped to centerline, most bulkheads are broken. Basically the starboard hull ripped off.
We set sail for Hawai’i over the Line Islands. We’re packed, we’re super excited, we’re ready for this 2,500 nm crossing!
Livestream from a cyber cafe in Moorea (French Polynesia). It’s going to be about our time in Ecuador (where we are in the Episodes). We’re talking about sailing plans plus some special announcements!
So much action in this episode! Spearfishing, shark fishing, storm sailing, and sweet sweet sailing. If you’ve got the itch to cut the lines and head offshore, this episode will do it for you.
