Making good progress 20/1/14. All is well. We had a fabulous time in Binningup with my two ham radio buddies Barry VK6HX and Alek VK6APK and their families.

We’re now back in Fremantle working our way through our long list and making good progress.

The damaged shrouds have been replaced and the new shrouds are in place. We’ve been busy making arrangements for a place to keep the boat, organizing the gear, making lists of inventory, keeping everyone informed about our plans and a thousand other things…

It’s a very warm 34° C today in Fremantle so we’ll be looking for ways to keep cool this afternoon. We’ll send more news soon.


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.
