A Tsunami of Abuse
I have been writing my blogg five days a week for the past twenty four months. I have to say I have enjoyed the comments interaction with other boaters and non-boaters alike.
But yesterday brought it home to me how vial people can be, when they are sitting at home hiding behind the phone, tablet or computer. It was like a tsunami of abuse.
I see lots of things on Facebook and the internet that I do not agree with and I simply pass it by. Sometime I never go to that page again.
On a balance, I think half the people understood the realistic predicament we and alot of fellow boaters are in. Yes it is not just about ME, there are thousands of people living on their boats across the oceans at this time all pondering on what to do.
Moving on a passage of 750nm is not the same as getting in your car and driving the 800 miles. For a start there is not another filling station for six days. Not another supermarket or a takeaway.
Add to that, that you are floating on a liquid, (The Ocean) being moved by another liquid (The Wind) it simply is not the same as driving with four patches of rubber on the ashfelt.
For me, alot of thought has to go in to this. The boat has to be ready, tanks full and plenty of food, water and gas. All of which is difficult to get here in a lockdown. The weather has to be right, I am simply not prepared to sail into hurricane condition to get somewhere.
So to you all that criticise us for feeling trapped and pondering on what to do, I say think before you write. The abuse yesterday let the sailing community down, it was a simple disgrace.
I am happy to take criticism, I have done so in the past, but the tsunami of abuse was embarrassing for you all not for me. If you don't like my blogg, please, don't read it.
