Small boats are wet – Sailing Tarka Ep. 21

Proceeds from this video will go to the Coral Reef Alliance, but you can also support me directly (and specifically the production of these videos) by becoming a Patron:

Tarka is a 1973 Albin Vega 27 (8.2m) that I bought sight-unseen and without sailing experience on the island of St. Martin in April of 2017. I was thrust head-first into ocean sailing as I got Tarka safely south from what would become the most devastating hurricane seasons on record. We are now working our way west towards the Pacific.

I am sailing Tarka around the world in part to raise money and awareness for coral conservation by supporting the Coral Reef Alliance. You can learn more here:

or visit their website directly:


If you make a donation to their website directly in Tarka’s honor, please send me an e-mail copy of your receipt so I can keep track of Tarka’s fundraising. You can forward to:

Additional support for Tarka’s sail for CORAL (The Coral Reef Alliance) comes from contributions by:

Soylent – Healthy provisioning for the long offshore passages
Sta Lok – Swage-less terminals for portions of Tarka’s rigging, making it an easy DIY job and allowing for easy inspection
Victron Energy – Providing monitoring solutions for Tarka’s batteries, to ensure we always have enough juice to do what we need to.
