Sailing Sketches



The originality and ingenuity of blogging sailors never ceases to amaze me. We have podcasts, video blogs and photo blogs, serious blogs and funny blogs, racing and cruising and voyage blogs. Carol Anne is still publishing her novel about sailing and wizards every Wednesday, and Ant is trying to start a SkypeCast for sailor bloggers.

Then just when I thought I'd seen it all I came across Plutos the Bubblemans' which claims to be a "low down, second hand, third rate, piss poor quality, shoddy shower of shameless sketches."

The author is having "a bit of a yot around the bottom of Greece & around the Islands with some friends" along with
1 No. Pencil : HB (used)
1 No. Pen , Bic Medium, Black.
1 No. pad of A4 paper white.
1 No. Brain, Soiled, bitter & broken..
Several of the local Beer Tokens.
and a spare pare of underpants.
He has been sending back sketches of his travels including the following samples.


There are more here and here and here. Always something new.
