I have been asked what physical training I am doing for the voyage? Well, not much really. It’s not an aerobic activity, and so running would not help, and swimming is inconvenient and boring. I am just staying active, walking, mowing lawns and enjoying all manner of moderate activities. Much of my time is taken up with reading. Reading manuals on the boat electronics and parts, on sail trim, managing gales and storms, and of course, on survival. I am bent to taking risks, but more than that, I have a high desire to survive whatever comes along - and the will no doubt.
