Coming to you from the USA! Today we had a livestream with Luke Berger, owner of Kraken Structures Synthetic Rigging. We talk about Dyneema, and are showing examples of different ropes available, where they are best used. Also boat building, making money underway, and cruising plans for Zingaro…
We are flying up to the States for a month. James’ brother is getting married and we are going to visit the SPECTRA WATERMAKERS manufacturing facility and show you guys INSIDE and pick up our new watermaker!
We’re going to be in San Diego and San Francisco! So We’d like to schedule meet-ups to meet YOU GUYS, drink a beer with you, and say thanks!
Meet up in SAN DIEGO: Harbor Town Pub in San Diego on the 15th of December at 6 o’clock 1125 Rosecrans Street San Diego, CA 92106
Meet up in SAN FRANCISCO: Bay View Boatclub in San Fransisco on Jan 4th at 6 o’clock 489 Terry A Francois Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94158
Sea Stories, bad advice, good beer. What more can you want. Bring anyone who’s ever dreamed about sailing the oceans… so we can talk them out of it over a cold one. 😉
Just a little update to let you know why we’ve been radio silent, announce a couple really cool things going on with Zingaro, and set to rest some questions we’ve had from our viewers. We’re talking about cats vs monos, cruising routes, our favorite places in the Caribbean (most of which you probably haven’t heard of) and our cruising plans for the rest of this season.
We’re giving back to the community that has made this adventure possible. We hit some major milestones this month: 1 million views, 20,000 subscribers, the Pacific!
In this livestream we discuss about transiting the Panama Canal, our cruising plans, Zingaro’s sails (old/new), travel to USA in April, thoughts on this channel after 1 year and about James’ sailing history …
I sailed solo for 7 days, rounding the western Cape of Cuba, and sat on the concrete in a plaza for 6+ hours to upload this. Enjoy!
We continue where we left off: I broke the rudder, as well as my macbook, autopilot, and phone. Everything gets fixed in this episode (except my iPhone, I’m going to throw that in the drink, watch for that video!). I go diving with friends, meet up with 2 crew members who are going to Cuba with me, and we sail down to Key West, Fl for new years eve!
Finally done with the first episode! Super exited to share this. Flew from Hawaii to Ft Myers, Florida to look at a catamaran, and ended up living there for 2 months while refitting and getting her ready for sea. It was tough, and a great learning experience. I’ve video-documented much of the process, and will be putting out detailed how-to videos, maybe they will help someone in their journey.
