Marmaris, Turkey

So reality is starting to sink in here that we really are a long way from knowing what we’re doing. The problem is that we don’t know what anything on the boat does, other than the beds… So we have a long way to go here before we’re ready to circle globe. Just check out the pic of the engine room!.. Yowza. Help is hard to find here because the busy season has arrived so hundreds of charter boats are in prep right now. Most likely will need to stay here a month or so before we can say goodbye to marmaris for good. Nobody said sailing RTW would be simple, and the bigger challenge just builds more character. Pop and I remain in excellent spirits and will conquer this as a team. Our jobs are being made easier by the owners manual we found this afternoon!

Piers is leaving LA on monday so we should have another set of hands here by wednesday. Cant wait for that!
