Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

I've never had customs or immigration issues anywhere in the EU.

In the Peseta days, 10..000 PTS got you a "fuck off go have fun and enjoy pass". Going through Suez? 400 cigs, bottle of shit Whiskey, but nowadays, 400 cigs, bottle of Whiskey and £100.
In the EU, bigger question, they're more interested in what gender you would like to be when we give you a free hotel room, courtesy of the UK tax payer.

Yeah, but she’s leaning on the skinny dreadlocks guy with the cheesy cap’n’s hat, a wet comic book, as LB15 nicely put it. He and his cheesy grin are hard to escape. Newbies clicking on the first post in the thread could easily be mislead into thinking that this sort of thing is acceptable (he’s got pierced nips too, if you dare to zoom in - lower lip too, I think) - or even think that’s the way cruising sailors should appear.

to be clear, when you see the thumbnail in the original post you notice the skinny dude with dreds and pierced nipples? NTTATWWT.

It’s a big world, mate. Lots of interesting places to go off the beaten track that aren’t high latitude.

True - but remoter lats have things like skiing off the boat! Bucket list thing for me. I’ve been watching a few of Chasing Contours vids lately (I won’t post a vid here in case someone complains that it’s off topic, not featuring girls with patreon accounts in warm places... :) ). Skiing off the boat in Norway and Svalbard looks pretty sweet...(in their vid about insulating their boat for high lats).

sounds like youve never been thru Greek customs
The only issue I had in Greece was the paperwork and costs associated with transiting the Corinth Canal, both of which were out of proportion to a transit that took less than an hour. But that has nothing to do with Customs or Immigration.

No problem with customs and immigration in Kos, entering Greece from Turkey, other than the normal hostility between the two countries.

I have learned to accept over the years that gatekeepers for various countries have varying, and sometimes annoying, procedures for entering their domains. Since you enter at their whim, suck it up and smile.

Ask any non-US citizen bringing a cruising boat into the US, or entering the US for work, no matter how short the period of time.

Skiing off a sailboat? Hmmm, no danger of sailing footage. Yes, it goes here. :)

Sure there’s a danger of sailing footage. (Below is a 60 foot cat that sails to remote backcountry ski lines in Kamchatka, Siberia.) Not bad skiing either :) Lots of charter folks have sprung up around the world offering this - in Iceland (recently, there were trips offered through the American Alpine Club or maybe the Canadian one), Norway, Svalbard, Kamchatka, Alaska (Prince William Sound).

But, yeah, around here there’s easy sailboat access to mountains at sea level but not much actual sailing to get there once you enter the fjords - the Coast Mountain Range is water accessible via very long fjords, so you’re often motoring in (unless you have a following breeze - fjord winds are typically either flowing in or out). A sail-to-ski trip to Mt. Tinniswood has been on my hit list for too many years :) I’ve been to the head of the fjord that goes up there (called Jervis Inlet) in a very cold late spring, no real snow at sea level - I’ve no idea what’s it’s like in winter - but instead, a slog through thick rain forest up to the glacier/mountains. Committing. I think we sailed parts of the fjord up and down, but it twists and turns through very steep mountains, so winds are unpredictable.)

I have been enjoying the recent videos from Barry "The Old Seadog" and Holly "The Wind Hippie" as they are now travelling in Fiji, or at least they were this past season, commonly to places I sailed as well. And so up pops this one, and for those of you who don't care for bearded, long-haried, fully-tatooed dudes, skip it. It's very strange that he could not find the required information about the mooring ball situation in Borabora, as it is readily available. The guy who collects the fees for the balls, Francis, comes by each morning. Plus there are in fact at least two areas you are allowed to anchor (supposedly you have to pay there too, but Francis did not bother me and I spent two nights anchored). And if a mooring field is full you are welcome to anchor nearby, which works well in the SW and SE corner mooring fields which are shallow and the most attractive. But for checking out of FP, you need to be near the town, and hence the need to take a mooring ball either at the yacht club like he did, or across the bay at Bloody Mary's restaurant, which is what I did because every ball at the yacht club was taken. Then either dinghy to town or hitchhike. Finally, his tattoos probably cost in total about the same as his boat, so it is a little rich for him to claim he cannot afford $35 a night for 2 or 3 nights, but that's what you have to do to check out of FP as the paperwork takes overnight, at least.
