In this episode we provision and start our 2500 nautical mile sail. We leave Ecuador bound for Easter Island (Rapa Nui)!
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.
Fanning Island – beautiful atoll in the Pacific
The Line Islands consists of the scattered islands and atolls lying near the Equator and the meridian of 160°00’W. We have visited three of the islands in the group so far.
I got installed sweet new 16:1 purchase adjustable backstays, and all new rigging. What I didn’t realize was the amount of dyneema that needed to be stretched. Big mistake.
He had it coming. He was such a bugger… Very difficult to live with, constantly complaining, a real nightmare. So, we got rid of the problem. Who Needs Cold Beer?
This is an all-sailing episode! We go over how to sail safer, specifically on a catamaran.
🙂 This is Kim’s very best episode so far: the intro, the endscreen, incredible underwater footage, narration and the choice of music… Check it out 🙂 Tiger sharks, Galapagos sharks and hammerhead sharks swim right under our sailboat all night and day long! Isla del Coco National Park is way better than we expected itContinue reading “Diving with Sharks on a Pirate Island (Isla del Coco #3) | Sailing Zingaro – Ep. 52”
Sailing a catamaran is scary sometimes. Especially when you’re trying to go as fast as physically possible! Join us as we’re making record time to Isla del Coco.
We sail the 400nm to see what kind of adventure we can get into. Come join us in Isla del Coco, Costa Rica.
We were just about ready to drop the boat back in the water…. BUT (and there’s always a but) the “Biocide-free” paint we used didn’t dry. Ever.
I take a Tico (that’s what they call a local Costa Rican guy – girls are Ticas) on a 200nm sail from Isla Caño to Isla Murcíalagos. What a great time. Here’s the real story on that one…
After sailing all the way to Costa Rica just to find a cheap yard to haul out, they kick us out!? Well, there’s only one thing to do… We hoist the sails and go SAILING!
Can you see what’s wrong with this picture? Find out in this week’s adventure sailing around Costa Rica on a plywood catamaran.
You guys have no idea how bad it’ll get without Lucie. She was the only cook aboard. We’re just getting to Costa Rica at the end of this episode, and good times await us here.
This is the very last Panama video and it has a bit of everything you guys love in a sailing video: storm sailing and spearfishing on an uninhabited island.
ucie comes back from Chile, and we head out to the islands again. We spearfish and sail through the south coast of Panama as we prepare for our journey to Costa Rica! We visit Islas Secas, Montuosa and Jicaron.
