“Once upon a time I got drunk and bought a sailboat from the bar maid in my favorite bar” seemed like an appropriate opening for my story since that is exactly how it all started. It ended with a 5 year sailing adventure that will take you around the circumference of the world using both hemispheres for a total of 33,194 miles of cruising through 23 seas and oceans, resting in 172 ports on 64 islands in 34 countries. I had the privilege to serve as the Master of the sailing yacht “MillenniumUSA” with 62 different crew members, men and women, (we even call our guests “crew” so we don’t have to pamper them) on different parts of this voyage. ‘Master’, may clearly be an exaggeration since, due to my liberal use of the traditional rum ration, I was neither forced to use the lash nor the plank to maintain discipline; just more rum! This is one part of a 10 part Series from my Book, “Pour me another rum – I’m going to sail around the world” “The Five Year Voyage”. It has been developed for those readers who wish to experience just a “taste” of the adventures of sailing around the world on their own yacht or for those who are interested only in specific parts of the world. So pour yourself a rum and climb aboard.
