Clark Beek, way out there

Damn the Doane! Due to Charlie, my head’s stuck in maybe the funniest, and best written, cruising blog I’ve ever fallen into. That would be Clark Beek’s Adventures of the Vessel Condesa, and the post that got Charlie’s particular attention is Beek’s latest…a tale of failed charting computers, a quartet of “Bond girls”, and a hostage situation on Columbia’s remote Pacific coast. Make yourself a little reading time before you click here.

And let’s hope Beek posts more about his dual PC crash, not to mention crew photos! Could he be the victim of some delusion-inducing jungle fever? Who knows, but his take on electronics as well as his tank of a boat, and his run-in with a container ship sure sound hyper real. The funny stuff? Here, there, and everywhere. Thanks, Clark!



What a great read. Thanks for the link and fair winds and following to Clark... a sailor's sailor if there ever was one.

Yes, thanks for that link. I am very jealous of Clark at this point, and I should add that I think his boat is lovely.

Cool about the chicks, but he's been sailing his boat around the world for 11 years & still no USCG ticket?
