Next month, my (bear with me here) step-sisters’ father and step-mother are leaving for a multi-year, around-the-world sailing trip. They’re going to be writing about it on sailfreyja.ca–I helped them set up their weblog. Freyja is the name of their boat (in addition to being the name of a Norse goddess, thank you Deities and Demigods).
To assuage the fears of their friends and families, Angela has produced a kind of worst-case-scenario FAQ. It includes questions like “What about pirates?” (it’s happened once already) and “What if terrorists blow up the satellites?” Plan B applies when the courage of the fearless crew fails and the Freyja is lost.
