Part 8 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the Indian Ocean and Red Sea and visit Sri Lanka, Maldives, Oman, Djibouti, Egypt and the Suez Canal. ... around the World!” “The 5 year Voyage”)

Part 8 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the Indian Ocean and Red Sea and visit Sri Lanka, Maldives, Oman, Djibouti, Egypt and the Suez Canal. ... around the World!” “The 5 year Voyage”)
 
Product Description:
“Once upon a time I got drunk and bought a sailboat from the bar maid in my favorite bar” seemed like an appropriate opening for my story since that is exactly how it all started.
It ended with a 5 year sailing adventure that will take you around the circumference of the world using both hemispheres for a total of 33,194 miles of cruising through 23 seas and oceans, resting in 172 ports on 64 islands in 34 countries.
I had the privilege to serve as the Master of the sailing yacht “MillenniumUSA” with 62 different crew members, men and women, (we even call our guests “crew” so we don’t have to pamper them) on different parts of this voyage. ‘Master’, may clearly be an exaggeration since, due to my liberal use of the traditional rum ration, I was neither forced to use the lash nor the plank to maintain discipline; just more rum!
This is one part of a 10 part Series from my Book, “Pour me another rum – I’m going to sail around the world” “The Five Year Voyage”. It has been developed for those readers who wish to experience just a “taste” of the adventures of sailing around the world on their own yacht or for those who are interested only in specific parts of the world. So pour yourself a rum and climb aboard.

Part 1 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the Shake Down Cruise in the Mediterranean Sea. Getting ready to Cruise: My Seven P’s - Passion, Planning, Purchasing, Possession, Provision, Preparations and Push Off.

Part 2 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to start the Round the World Voyage and sail the Western Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

Part 3 - Pour me another rum – I’m going to sail the Caribbean Sea and visit the Turks & Caicos, Leeward, Windward, Virgin, San Blas and the ABC Islands and the Panama Canal.

Part 4 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the Pacific Ocean and visit Galapagos, Marquesas, and Cook Islands and Polynesia.

Part 5 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the South Pacific and visit New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia.

Part 6 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail Down Under, Australia and the Great Barrier Reef.

Part 7 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the Java Sea and Malacca Straits to Bali, Burma, Singapore, South China Sea, and Phuket.

Part 8 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the Indian Ocean and Red Sea and visit Sri Lanka, Maldives, Oman, Djibouti, Egypt and the Suez Canal.

Part 9 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and visit Turkey, Greece and the Corinth Canal.

Part 10 - Pour me another rum - I’m going to sail the Central Mediterranean Sea, Malta, Tunisia and Southern Italy - Ending the Round the World Voyage.

Product Description:
In 1869, the Suez Canal was completed and the city of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, the chief sawmill town on the Chippewa River, was incorporated. Chippewa Falls grew in popularity and influence. It persevered through hardships and experienced the ebb and flow of wealth and power―and 135 years later, Chippewa Falls remains a vital community. This pictorial history documents the heritage of Chippewa Falls from 1896 through the present, with chapters such as Women at Work, Made in Chippewa for the Rest of the World, Family Albums, and Celebrate! Celebrate! By blending contemporary photographs with archival images and providing opportunities for reflection and comparison, this book contributes significantly to the preservation of the community’s collective history.

Product Description:
Before the advent of the jet age, ocean liners were the principal means of transport around the globe, and carried migrants and business people, soldiers and administrators, families and lone travelers to every corner of the world. Though the ocean liner was born on the North Atlantic it soon spread to all the other oceans and in this new book the author addresses this huge global story.

The account begins with Brunel's Great Eastern and the early Cunarders, but with the rise in nationalism and the growth in empires in the latter part of the 19th century, and the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, the colonial powers of Spain, France and Germany soon established shipping lines of their own, and transpacific routes were opened up by Japanese and American lines. The golden age between the two world wars witnessed huge growth in liner traffic to Africa, Australia and New Zealand, India and the Far East, the French colonies and the Dutch East and West Indies, but then, though there was a postwar revival, the breakup of empires and the arrival of mass air travel brought about the swan song of the liner.

Employing more than 250 stunning photographs, the author describes not just the ships and routes, but interweaves the technical and design developments, covering engines, electric light, navigation and safety, and accommodation. A truly unique and evocative book for merchant ship enthusiasts and historians.
