Sailing The World

By December 28, 2013Travel, Travel The World

Glenn Wakefield is circumnavigating the world. He left BC in August and is currently on the bottom of the world. We picked up his Christmas post.

Position: 34 25 S, 82 33 E

All is well. Lots of wind and rain here at the tail end of ‘Bruce’. Have filled the main water tanks 100% and now filling my 10 gallon spare! My batteries are very low with little prospect of sunshine today. 

I will be heading north at 18:00 hrs today to get around the hi. It may take me a few days as I’ll try to get some westing in as well.

Wishing you happy holidays. I miss you beyond belief. 


Glen-Wakefield-420x412As Glenn sails solo around the world, thousands of people will log on to the site daily to check his progress and read about his experience. Like his previous circumnavigation attempt in 2007-2008, kimchowaroundtheworld, many will reach out with questions and comments. And, like last time, Glenn will provide answers and comments as time permits.

To follow his progress on this trip simply visit his website.

From those ‘conversations’, we found out they came from countries around the world and from all walks of life. They’re all ages, married, single, retired, working, men and women, students, and some with children. Many have a keen interest in sailing and boating and extreme adventures of one type or another. And many, are ‘armchair adventurers’ as they describe it, who vicariously enjoyed the adventure from the comfort of their own home.

What they all had in common was a keen interest in this adventure, Glenn’s commitment to fulfill his life’s dream, and his daily experience as he battled to complete his goal.

In 2007-2008, the kimchowaroundtheworld blog saw more than 50,000 visitors from 109 countries on the site. The majority of them visited daily. In addition, we received thousands of messages of support and well wishes.

In 2013, we expect the same if not more people logging on to follow Glenn’s progress and witness his experience as it unfolds.
