Somewhere between the Galapagos Islands en route to the Marqesas Group in the darkest of nights, at approximately six degrees south of the equator a sailboat is whispering along under full sail. The fresh south east trades are pushing her sleek hull through the coal black water at around eight knots. The man standing at the wheel, wearing ragged shorts only in the warm tropical breeze gently fanning him over the port quarter, helms his craft by starlight alone. All lights have been doused on this moonless night and even the masthead white light has been switched off.
Fixing his eyes on a star group which arcs back and forth over the masthead as it sways to the roll of the ocean, he has been sailing his yacht like this for an hour or more. He could put her onto autohelm, but is so absorbed in his task that he feels he could stand watch all night. Accompanying him is a pod of dolphins gambolling along and playing with this laggardly and sluggish thing sharing their watery world, which adds to the delight of the moment.
Surrounded by a three hundred and sixty degree inverted bowl he is totally confounded by the absolute multitude cornucopia of stars before him in this tiny quadrant of the ocean. How many more must there be that cannot be seen from this position? With no degrading light from any other source, the stars shine brightly and they are countless. Breathtaking in their abundance he comes to the conclusion that life exists elsewhere in the universe, other than just on our planet. Not that this is a new thought to him, but sailing in these conditions rams it home with greater significance and whilst carrying the feeling of being such a tiny little speck in the scope of things, he also feels very strongly to be part of the great flowing river of life. At this moment, absorbing the wonder, he would not want to be anywhere else on the planet.

Here is one of the tips from my collection of ‘101 Dollar Saving Tips for Sailors’:
Tip no. 66: Breeze Block’n’tackle – This tip will blow you away for its simplicity. I fashioned a lightweight block and tackle with a hook, that hooked into the forward edge of the front hatch (it had a convenient hole there already in the aluminium frame). The upper end of the tackle cord is whipped onto the inner forestay up as high as you can reach. The operators cord end dangles in the open hatch. With a small cam cleat fitted onto the forward edge of the wooden frame, it is simplicity itself, by pulling the cord to raise or lower the hatch to whatever position you desire, to control the airflow. Ideal at night when at anchor, as it can be adjusted without having to get out of the comfort of your bunk. Luxury! Cost: two small blocks, a small cam cleat, small s/s s shaped hook, and a length of cord – around thirty dollars.
Many sailors, armchair sailors, dreamers, some day sailors, voyage planners, and anyone else thinking about embarking on an adventure such as sailing our oceans, dream about it for years, putting it off until sometime in the future when they think they will be able to afford it, and will have the time. For most of these people, it never happens. They put it off for so long, suddenly, they think it is too late.
Let me tell you, it is never too late! Once the idea is firmly planted in your mind that you are going to do it, nothing will stop you, nothing will get in your way. Do you know why? Because, once you have made the decision, it will become a burning desire, and you will become so passionate, that you will move mountains to achieve it, and the closer you come to your departure date, the more eager you will become to leave.
A good start is to purchase my ebook ‘Sailing Adventures in Paradise’ including ‘101 Dollar Saving Tips for Sailors’, which will give you many good ideas that don’t cost a lot, and also help you to understand that it is much simpler and easier than perhaps you may think. It is the accumulation of knowledge over a period of time that gets you there eventually. To borrow from Nikes’ well known advertising line, ‘Just get out there and do it!
If you are still wavering about purchasing ‘Sailing Adventures in Paradise’ including my ‘101 Dollar Saving Tips for Sailors’,
Here is Tip no.24: Toughening your inflatable – The corners at the front of your rubber dinghy take a beating over time, and it is a good idea to strengthen them with a few additional patches. This will pay dividends when rubbing up against shell covered pilings, docks etc. Take some large rubber patches, round the corners and glue them over these vulnerable areas. Make sure you do this in your preparation period before leaving port for the first time, as you will probably never get around to it once you have set sail. Another great idea is to paint the name of your boat in large lettering down the length of the sponsons of your dinghy. Get the right manufacturers’ rubber paint, so that it adheres properly to the fabric of your tender. To keep everything looking shipshape and Bristol fashion, paint the lettering in the same font you have on the stern of your yacht – looks professional. Your dinghy will look very smart, and will never get stolen. Also, it will be far easier to spot her, buried in a mess of other boats at a busy tender dock. Cost: a few dollars for the patches, glue etc., and an hour or so of your time.
