  3. Why was the main boom tied out to the side with furled sail ?

  4. I like your boat

  5. Love Distant Shores! With regard to the rope or lines, I’m surprised that they don’t manufacture them with some sort of anti-chaff ends?

  15. My wife and I recently did the Atlantic crossing from the US to Europe. In a few years, we will be following in your wake when we return to the Caribbean!

  16. Can't believe the British… Sails across in a white shirt!!

  17. Why not use another boat to yank the chain free from under the rocks? You must have a pretty powerful dinghy on that behemoth sailboat, if not a plethora of powerful boats in the marina.

    Reply
  18. So you left all that anchor chain for someone else to get caught up in?

    Reply
  19. All above deck does nothing happen below deck ?

  31. I love applications like this. It's a shame we didn't have any underwater footage. So I've heard the saying "Head South until the butter melts, then turn right."

  35. As always, such an enjoyable video. I really like your two-pole fore sales. We have much the same, with the second being a hank on.

    Reply
  36. What makes your new set up better than using main sail and one head sail.

    Reply
  37. I love your camera. I don't think any other youtuber has been able to show us phosphorescent plankton. That was a real treat.

    Reply
  38. Great video! You have to film a new intro while being in the Caribbean 🙂

  39. Paul, Wow new boat looks amazing and looks like its preforming the same, have a question though, you said your making 160 to 170 miles a day, how does that contrast with last years trip on the cat, how many miles a did it make when the wind was blowing, I recall a few windless days if I'm right…
