S/V Hello World's Travel Log


In Seattle? Liveaboards get to race their houses. The winner gets a hat that says "I have the fastest house on Puget Sound".

Sadly, we received no such hat. We were, in fact, the slowest house on Puget Sound. DFL in sailing terms (Dead F'ing Last). Turns out that everyone else in this race was somewhat serious. We had big plans to take the prize for "boat that most looks like a liveaboard" - bikes on the deck, bbq on the bowrail, dinghy on the davits. We were unaware there was not such a prize (besides, we were too lazy for the bikes and the bbq, so we just went with the dinghy).

That's right. We race with our dinghy.

We went out with Jacob, Julia and CB - had a fantastic time - we even scared another boat at one of the mark roundings with our big anchor - they steered clear!

Slowest house on Puget Sound? Yes, but at least we can sail these days!

This is the closest you will EVER see HW sailing to another boat (if Jason has his way)

Good day on the water.

Slow is an art. Well done.

You have the slowest moving most ridiculous plan in the room...but your execution is flawless!
