SV Why Knot- No plan, no schedule, no destination.
Generally going somewhere as decided by the crew usually at the last possible minute (after checking weather). Since the Mayans were wrong about that end-of-the-world thingy, the Cruise of '13 (phase IX) starts in April.
Our greatest challenge was to actually bring in the dock
lines at our home port and get going. Next came the actual
act of living aboard which is way different than weekending or
the occasional extended sail. This is life avoiding causing your
mate to drop stuff or run into bulkheads. This is having so much
stuff aboard that one has to inventory. This is life without land
transportation in strange places. This is meeting folks and hating
to say good bye, then looking forward to the time when courses cross
again, to the surprise of seeing them at some unexpected place.
