Capucine Trochet sailing aboard Tara Tari, the first ever sailboat made from 100% jute fibre.
The first portrait I drew in a very long while, I somehow had convinced myself that I wasn't good at it, glad it's not the case. Looking forward to inktober and just drawing a little bit every day for the rest of my life.
Ran out of cacao powder, so am using kinako to make a stovetop cake ^____^.
Galley smells so good rn.
Water restrictions in the Islands make it very difficult to fill-up our water. We've been reliant on our own supplies for a few weeks now.
All the Islands reserve the water for local consumption. Understandable, but it makes it difficult for those who don't have a fixed home.
Today we are switching to our pressure sprayer to wash the dishes. Our main tank is near empty, but we still have a few extra litres in Jerry cans to draw from.
Rekka & I will be giving a keynote presentation, alongside Khyam Allami, at NIME 2022!
Another shot, up the mast.
"Marcus climbing up and down La Chica's mainsail in 2013."
Apparently, with a junk rig you can use the battens to climb to the top of the mast.
"Between January 2015 and March 2020, there were 102 incidents of ships dragging anchors along B.C.'s coastline which can result in collisions, groundings or other emergencies."
"The vessels are destined for the Port of Vancouver, but use more than two dozen anchorages in and around the Southern Gulf Islands to wait for a berth to open in the port to pick up cargo such as grain, coal, potash or sulphur.
The Port of Vancouver says growth in trade, supply chain issues and weather-related delays have resulted in the Southern Gulf Island anchorages being used more."
A website tracking the many cargo ships anchored in the Gulf Islands, a growing problem in the area.
These anchorages are located in sensitive marine ecosystems.
(One of my favorite bird encounters at sea.)
