Episode Four – We remove the sails, untangle the mooring ropes and survive two very wet Typhoons.

This week we remove the sails, survive two very wet typhoons and I get ready for a 1200 Nm adventure sailing from one end of Japan to the other, Hokkaido to Kagoshima, on a newly refurbished 28 foot Bristol Channel Cutter.

The sail from Hokkaido to Kagoshima will be a true adventure for me! I don’t like cold weather or water, it is a 28 foot traditional sail boat and we are on the wrong side of Japan with sailing through the “missile testing” grounds for North Korea.

But am determined to make the most of it. Will be a fantastic experience to sail this coast line on a traditional classic small boat.
