Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24


Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 

OK, it's almost 10,000 posts about Rimas's most excellent voyages. As a recent FaceBook friend I receive dozens of "friending" acceptance notices, stupid tourist shots of American Samoa and now he's in the the Pacific Northwest with happy happy goo-goo shots of his friends and may find best boat to challenge the Horn on the cheap. He's become my biggest Timeline poster. I tire of it. Until Rimas gets a new boat with Cape Horn plans he's just juking FaceBook for dough.

 

I retire from posting until Rimas once again leaves a harbor or gets towed out for a solo voyage on a hopefully worthy craft.

Unretired briefly because Rimas is apparently serious about getting a Cape Horn boat with a budget of $3000, something 5' longer and with all the circumnavigator stuff included (like that's on the market). Apparently he's looked at dozens of boats and put in some lowball bids here and there to no avail. He's making noises about a fall departure so the clock is ticking.

 

I'm stunned. He's apparently been able to keep the dream alive and live on others sofas since his return to the Mainland and has has some limited money or access to benefactor funding. He may be playing the table perfectly.

 

I add one observation that may dim his plans. The guy's 64 now and as the years pass performance decreases compared to a 30 year old. He may age out before he sees Cape Horn.

he won't ever get to Cape Horn without learning to sail to windward. He'll probably die first.

Just read this article about the Horn in a Don Poole built trawler built in 1976 like the one I had doing the Horn. Read their adventure below

Can anyone envision rimas doing this?

 

roaring forties, furious fifties and screaming sixties........100 foot plus waves frequent rouge ones freezing temps.....

I envision him yapping about it, until donations dry up. Then he'll become a record-breaking scientist doing a field study on global warming sea rise in the tropical islands. Whatever scam keeps the $ coming.

 

 

You mean, like his plea for donations to his record-breaking cancer research?

At least that was short-lived

Rimas is stuck in a time warp… promoting some mythical record breaking voyage when really he has just bumbled, fumbled and drifted in a dangerous manner partway across the world's most benign ocean before giving up.

cancer research???...I missed that one

 

Even though many denied that Rimas was soliciting for cancer research, here is where it was posted before he left Oak Harbor:

Who is paying for Rimas to drink Starbucks?

Dunkin' Donuts not good enough for our aristocratic non-worker?

he is a world renowned beggar grifter whose every wish seems to be granted so why not? Would you force a man of such high status to grovel in a soup kitchen for a cup of chicory?

I'm still trying to wrap my head around why he wants to plant an American flag on South Georgia Island, which is owned by the UK. He's not even the sharpest spoon in the drawer.

He selects his own history, sizes his own geography and seizes his own chicken. Ohey!

Past custom was for a discoverer , acting as an agent for a monarch, to plant a flag on a newly "discovered" land in the name of the monarch, as a new possession. Then set about killing the natives.

In Rimas's case, it's the equivilent of coming home from work and finding squatters have set up camp in your yard.

There are about 30 people living on South Georgis Is., according to Wiki. I'm not sure their reaction. Probably a collective WTF? and several messages exchanged with HMRN to do something about the lunatic trying to freeload off them.

It could be viewed as a hostile invasion and result in an ass woopin and a tow back out to sea.

Soup kitchens generally don't have WIFI; otherwise the opportunity of a free meal wouldn't be lost on Rimas.

So what's upwind from S Georgia Island? And what's downwind? Just trying to figure possible departure and destination points for the mashed tater supply calculation.

I think S Georgia is upwind or for that matter downwind of S Georgia. ;)

S Georgia is almost due east (downwind) from Cape Horn. I suspect Rimas's fascination with the island is that it was where Shackleton and a few of the Endurance crew sailed the converted lifeboat, James Cairn, to summon rescue for the remainder of the crew. Rims probably figures if he can sail there, he'll be as equally heroic.

Rimas's "upwind problem" stems from having to sail from the prevailing easterlies (roughly above 20deg) to the prevailing westerlies (roughly below 40deg). Cold fronts from the south mean he'll have several hundred miles of slogging upwind. Once he can get to the roaring forties (and Cape Horn is about 55deg, IIRC) he'll have no problem drifting downwind for several thousand miles to Cape Horn, provided he can survive 60+ knot winds, 50+ foot seas, and freezing temperatures.

With bungee cords for a cap shroud and his sails flown upside down, I think this is a hugely academic (or fantastic) idea. Flying Dutchman worthy.

 

Absurd really.

 

 

BUT, should his enablers stump up for the 1) Right boat 2) Right maintenance program 3)plenty of equipment and food. 4) a prayer or three.

 

Maybe he could do it, but we are talking much MUCH more money.

What a load of borax the previous few posts were - Rimarse is in the Pacific, Last time I looked South Georgia was (and still is ) in the South Atlantic. There is not a snowball's chance in hell of him ever traversing between the two.

I dunno, Tristan Jones made it from one to the other (linky linky) without going thru either the Panama Canal (which cost money) or around Cape Horn (which requires sailing skill). It's a long way up those mountains but Rimas has proven that he can be very persistent.

I'm pretty sure he has used the spinnaker sheets for the jib because they have clips and he can't tie a bowline.

On quite a few boats that will allow a slightly higher windward VMG.

In his case, it allowed him to make 90.1* to windward.

That's all on another boat, driven by someone who claimed a vague clue as to sailing. Rimas is just feeling the rumblings of a 3-coiler he's going to leave in the host's toilet.

Rimas' friends appear to have given him a daily Starbucks habit, so I am unsure if he will travel across the sea again.

On the other hand, since the Balboa 24 appears to be out, now they are discussing putting him on a Pearson 33.

He still intends to depart in October. I assume the boat is already in the Bay Area awaiting Rimas' approval.

If I send one of those to Rimas, tell him it is an aid to navigation, think he will pose with it for a FB selfie?

Hold onto a Nintendo, they'll start to be worth something soon.

Alright I've had enough. How can we sit back in judgment on this guy when I'll bet there are none among us that have drifted halfway across the pacific ocean, used a mahi mahi for a sail, lost two auxiliary motors overboard, or had to be rescued or towed so many times in as short a period time as Captain Rimas? If there is, speak up......................

'

And if all that doesn't set some kind of a world record then nothing does.........And I didn't even mention his impeccable nautical wardrobe, that's gotta be worth something. You must admit it is very entertaining.

....who's taking the pictures? I'm thinking some equivalent of the organ grinder is at play here, dress up the monkey, make it do tricks, perhaps it'll bring in fund$,or at least be worth some amusement.

was that gaze or did you mean glaze...He often appears more glazed as there is nothing in his eyes. Has anyone noticed that or is that just an effect of the camera, is there really a person behind the glaze?

...I'm more 'interested' in the current tenancy to engage the camera and in effect US!...hardly a gaze or glaze now.

 

Yep. He seems like a prop positioned for the camera. I'm gonna make an effort to see him and attempt to converse if he gets to ca. Maybe I can talk him into teaching me how to sail :D

....be sure to leave your baseball bat at home.

he gets around, I have a few anchors around maybe I'll take one or two I haven't used in years to donate to the cause.

 

Anchored:

 

Our anchor’s too big for our ship,

So we’re sittin’ here tryin’ to think.

If we leave it behind we’ll be lost.

If we haul it on board, we will sink.

If we sit and keep talkin’ about it,

It will soon be too late for our trip.

It sure can be rough on a sailor

When the anchor’s too big for the ship.

Someone is editing the negative comments on Rimas's FB page in a peculiarly selective way.

 

Some negative ones are left for controversy and others that hit the mark are removed.

 

It's clever since the moron enablers think their take on his exploits are somehow realistic, sensible and holding sway.

What happens in two or three months when Rimas doesn't have a boat and it's too late (or not advisable) to sail out of the Pacific NW for the season?

I'm sure California will be warmer. Close to a Starbucks.

Meanwhile, over on FB, buried deep in a response to a critical comment to a recent post about turning his next vessel into a floating library, "Our Hero" declares the record breaking aspect of his journeys to be a thing of the past!

 

 

Rimas Meleshyus I am getting this time not San Juan 24, will be total another boat, no more records. I am just I want to sail around the world alone

 

Now "Our Hero" wants to sail just to tackle loneliness. He is not competing against others, just himself.

......a VERY good sign.

...or has he decided that humility will bring in more boat bux$

 

Of course the question remains can you sail for records, can you sail for 'alone',,,,if you can't even frikken sail!?
