This is fantastic. Very well documented, fun to watch, and I love the fork
on the floor and the burnt toast! 🙂 Awesome! My boyfriend Pete and I have
sailed our 37′ wooden sailboat on an Atlantic circumnavigation. Check out
my channel! Cheers!
Mister Williams, thank you so very much. You have helped me identify what I
want my life’s ultimate goal to be.
I want to thank you for this great video very well done funny yet
informative I am currently a power boater but was leaning towards sail and
now I think I have been completely won over I look forward to my first sail
adventure and hope it is as notable as yours please keep your you tube
audience up to date with more sailing of the thelonius . mike harris
Columbus ohio ps got the same paper work for outdated flares on lake erie
ck out my skiffcraft 22 youtube video throttles down and !hope to post a
new video soon sails are up !
Best solo crossing vid I’ve seen to date!
Nice Ericson also.
I own a few Ericsons myself. I have a E27 that I restored and sailed for
the last two years here on the Bay (Chesapeake Bay).. We were supposed to
sail to St. Croix USVI last winter but never made it due to poor weather. I
sold mirage last week to friends in North Carolina who hope to sail her
down to St. John where we had met. I also have My project E32mk2. Complete
gut and rebuild now lost in a legal dispute with the marina. Change of
management and unwritten agreements not being met and what have you (If I
don’t get her back and finish her I hope someone does).
Cheers N beers
very good indeed – I enjoyed every minute
My fiancé and I have been sailing a Roughwater33 in Corpus Christi Bay for
about six months. We’ve been in the Gulf of Mexico once and we’re studying
and working on ocean crossings. We’re novices as far as making passages
goes, but we both found this very inspiring and inviting. Thank you for
the encouragement and congratulations on you voyage.
Enjoyed every minute of it!!! Thanks for this!!
Really enjoyed this video! Thanks for posting!
great show….hope to see you here in the south bay area. Salty Seaman 26′
columbian sail boat.
Bravo! well done crossing and more importantly well documented!
What a great story!! I hope to do the same someday with or without the
Question what are the internet possibilities at sea? and did you have a
I really enjoyed that! Thanks for posting, well filmed, amusing and good
music. The buoyage when you got to the port in Hawaii freaked me out for a
bit though until I remembered that you guys use IALA B!
I’ve passed cruise ships while ‘out there’ and thought – “if they only knew
what they were missing”. Great video. I sure hope you replaced those
I yearn for the open waters! My dad has been an inland waters Capt. and
Pilot on the Mississippi and I have yet to fulfill my place on a deck that
will take me to the life I long to experience ! Hope to do that soon. This
one of the best sailing trip on YT I have witnessed! Aside from deckhand
work! lol! Thank you Capt. Williams!
great, great, great! Loved the boat, the narration, the understated style
and pace. And wow – watching you dance alone on a rolling cabin top at
sea….. that had me the most nervous than any other point! And I
wonder…. would you be flattered if I noted that, were it not for your
lovely wife and perhaps the 50 year difference in age (a technicality,
really), you and Dutch sailor Laura Dekker are quite the match!!! Who would
have thought that the solitary quirks of an adolescent European girl and
those of a retired California man would be similarly charming? (loved the
addition of the simple underwater shots too. Always want to do that) Very
Wow! Well made, amazing sailing and a great man. Thank you, I was lost in
the pacific for 29 minutes!
Nicely documented and fun to watch. Missing my 47′ Guzzwell (Sunrise), sold
and now in her new homeport in Sydney, NSW. _ Mahalo
Outstanding Video Capt.
I was on the crew hired to bring “Grace” back to SFO after the single
handed trans-pac. It never happened. The hurricanes were coming in every
three days and thanks to El Nino going far further North than expected.
We had to move her from Hanalei to Nawiliwili because of one of them and
got the “last room at the inn.” We later moved her to Oahu, Ko Olina where
she still sits to be sold.
Hurricanes are nothing to mess with especially 1000 miles out with no where
Great video! Q: does anyone have a remedy for headaches while out sailing
on the ocean? They are almost like a migraine and relief comes in sleep
which is not helping with being a crew hand. Have tried over-the-counter
homeopathic oils that you put behind the ear but the smell is nauseous and
acupressure bands on the wrist. Neither which have brought relief.
Suggestions and comments are welcomed. :)
Wonderfully entertaining, Mr. Williams! This morning, while searching for a
good film to enjoy before a long day of work, I was about to call up Noah
with Russell Crowe, then somehow got sidetracked and surfed to your video.
Wish it had been 2 hours long, but the 30 minutes I was immersed in your
special adventure. Thank you for sharing. By the way, your film was far
better than Noah!
definitely, the dancing part !!!
great job!! great video!!
well done captain!!
Cant escape the police state. Not even in the middle of the ocean. Go
Thank you for the great inspiraton. Beautiful video and nice thoughts to.
Regards from Reykjavik, Iceland.
I can’t wait until I retire.
Very well shot and edited video, well narrated and most enjoyable, thank
