Green Ghost, crossing Singapore Strait, the busiest shipping lane in the world, like trying to cross the 401 as a pedestrian

weather window, and then " go " .
It is hard to keep things in perspective
when you are cruising - to remember how
wonderful it is. When you get caught-up
in the rat race (to earn more money to
cruise), you might forget about the feeling of wonder, freedom and the urge to
come back to it. All this went through
their minds when they dry-docked Green
Ghost in Australia for 5 years and returned
to Toronto to work. As the years ticked
by, had they lost sight of their dream?
Although offshore sailing takes its toll,
dry docking can cause even more maintenance.... And it did, presenting a long
list of repairs and upgrades that had to be
accomplished before they set out again to

Geographically Significant - Rounding the Cape of Good Hope

go over the top of Australia.
Work completed, they set sail again
for Indonesia. With conditions ripe for
lightning strikes, they realized that their
oven was a perfect Faraday cage for all
their electronics. A few days later, electronics forgotten, Jennifer turned on the
oven...... yup, safe from electrical storms
maybe, but certainly not safe from her!
Leaving the Indian Ocean meant rounding the Cape of Good Hope which was no
small feat with its notorious windy conditions. Waiting for your weather window
could be frustrating. But crossing the
kinder, smaller Atlantic would be easier
- wouldn't it? Were the unforeseen challenges of blue water cruising starting to

outnumber the joys?
Three and a half years later, with many
more adventures and mishaps behind
them, they laid anchor in Burlington,
Ontario, their new home. Today, Green
Ghost calls Penetanguishene home, and
Jennifer and Nik are looking forward to
cruising the stunning waters of the North
Channel. They had chosen their path in
life and set out with a dream to sail to
Australia. They made it, and figured out
the rest from there!
Released in June 2020, Green Ghost,
Blue Ocean is available at the Nautical
Mind, Indigo and Amazon.
