    Hey Nick!

    You do sound sea-sick hope that you gradually get your sea-legs. The position page shows you still have such a long distance to cover. Full on.

    All I am worried about at the moment is the comedy festival which compared to sailing across the atlantic solo seems rather silly. Although too much comedy can be hard to deal with.

    The show is going well though – halfway through the run now.

    Keep pushing on and eat dry biscuits if you have them, they always help me get over motion sickness (and I used to be sick every morning on the way to school on the bus).


  3. Nick –

    Great to hear you’re underway at last, even if you aren’t sounding so great, necessarily. 🙂

    At any rate, you should be past the seasickness by now, and just loving life under sail. Lots and lots of people are, like me, sailing “along with you”, and we all look forward to hearing more as this leg of your journey progresses.

    Kudos! Fair winds to you, and have fun!

    My God you do sound a bit sick!
    Try to look at the horizon so that your brain can fix on something that is not moving. I am proud of you, mate! You have really made and now you are crossing the big atlantic ocean. Well there is still another big one to come but I the atlantic ocean is a good start.
    Promise not to listen to the Klabautermann if he appears. it is all just in your head.
    Continue what you are doing. It sounds really good!
    Greetings from Berlin

    Hi Nick,
    Haven’t reached the end of the journey yet as I can’t seem to find the podcasts anywhere, so will have to skip the Atlantic. Stumbled across your site the other day and have been reading each of your blog posts- Id love to do something similar and am seriously toying with the idea (once i find out the essentials from your guinea pig run.
    Anyway to get ahold of the podcasts at all?

      Tim, I’ve updated them as downloadable MP3s for you! Cheers, Nick
