Many of our crew, including Captain Blood and the XO, Brian, are sports enthusiasts. As such, S/V Lynx will offer quite a few sporting activities, though some will depend on where the boat is in the world.
The only sport that requires prior training is scuba diving; should any of our crew wish to dive, they need to become a certified diver. We suggest a P.A.D.I. online Open Water course, followed by some pool and a couple of days diving. That way you can enjoy the sport diving we will be doing at various locations. We will even have a compressor and diving gear on board and Captain Blood is a Master Scuba Diver Trainer (not currently active).
However, should any of our crew desire to participate in any of the sports or exorcise activities, other than issuing the dive certification, the rest can be taught to them while they are on board.
There other activities besides sports... the world is filled with wondrous things to see, from natural wonders to museums and theater.
In addition, there are local specialties, things that are made at a particular place as well as festivals, parades, carnivals, etc.
There are endless places to explore or wonderful restaurants where we can sample the local foods, or shopping for whatever we want or need.
With our plan to visit over 120 different countries, regions, and territories, everywhere we go there will be new things to see, do, and try. And, when we desire, we'll take tours to get an even more in depth experience.
We plan to visually document everything on the trip for a weekly VLog, so we must shoot...
Building the Boat: Initially, we will shoot a video series on how to build our Solitaire 1520.
Once on the voyage, we will continue:
By Land: We will video chronicle all the things we do and experience at each destination.
By Sea: While sailing, we will video the voyage, how we sail, fish, inspect and maintain the boat, cook, stand watches, etc.
By Air: Some things are better seen from above, so we will have several drones on board for areal videography or stills.
Underwater: We will make underwater videos. Captain Blood is an award winning underwater photographer and the man who, literally, wrote an underwater video specialty course for P.A.D.I.
Still Photography: We will also do air, land, and underwater still photography.
