    Dec 22nd Update From Cole And Ronnie




    Cole Brauer
    First Light

    The Southern Ocean has been the Ocean of Trick and Treats. I’ll be sailing along, maybe it’s even light winds, everything seems a little unsteady, I’m on my feet maybe I am ready maybe I am about to. I can feel something in the air. The boat doesn’t feel right. Something is coming. As I’m getting my gear on the boat goes into a broach. Not a bad broach, a shift broach. A broach where the wind shifts enough

    The Ups And Downs Of The Indian Ocean



    After discovering a rip in the mainsail on Thursday, Ronnie Simpson aboard Shipyard Brewing been tirelessly working to get the sail back to operational status.

    Facing a rush to the start line and acknowledging a lack of ideal preparation, Ronnie has been navigating a series of repairs with limited resources. He employed a zig-zag stitch to mend the torn areas of the sail and resourcefully used hydranet cloth from an old staysail. This cloth was affixed with sikaflex and

    Keeping It Clean In The Southern Ocean



    After about 10 days in the Southern Ocean, I wake up this morning to the boat broaching. I stop her from broaching only to realize it is freezing outside! The sun is up, it comes up around 4am UTC, there are some cumulus clouds floating about but what broached the boat was a little squall bringing 26 knots after a night of 18-20knots. The boat doesn’t like the sudden change in breeze strength and direction making her wipe out slightly. It’s a gentle broach and easily fixed...

    Breakfast With Cole Brauer




    "I sit here on this superbly beautiful morning, I always try to sleep in. It
    is so hard to do. Something draws me to wake up at first light. I fought it this morning to no avail. I put my eye mask on, breathed deep and tried to relax. But then duty called and I had to go use the head anyways.

    So why
    not get up and have a breakfast smoothie with granola while watching the sunrise? I go to sleep at dark anyways. I wake up at midnight UTC a couple hours later
