S3#32. Naked Swim Across Equator on 8000nm Atlantic crossing!!! Make Soft Shackle for $2 in 3 mins

Join our Patreon : patreon.com/BarefootDoctorsSailing – from $3/episode

Join the Barefoot Doctors on the trans-Atlantic voyage as they reach the half way point on toes 8000nm crossing and cross the Equator while swimming NAKED! It’s a bucket list for many and we brave the 5000m deep, dark water, 600nm from land, during a rain squall and at night – would you????

Also we share how to make a soft shackle VERY EASILY in 3 mins for $2. compared to buying them for $30 from the chandlers….

We try to save a bird that flutters into the boat at night but it disappears seemingly into thin air – where could it possibly have gone? Horrifyingly it flapped under the sliding door in the head and seemed to be crushed as the door was opened and closed – you need to have a strong stomach

We also offer our mental health services and the TUFMINDS processes to help the victims of the Lahaina fires on Maui. So if you know anyone that needs counselling or help with loss, bereavement, stress, anxiety, PTSD and much more, get them to contact us in the comments below, contact u=our Facebook page on Barefoot Doctors or email us directly on drjohnmcintosh@tpg.com.au

We have reached out to the organisers of the relief efforts and several individuals but would like to help many more people because the TUFMINDS strategies help individuals to reframe bad experiences and we can teach these to many folk together so group sessions could be arranged if the numbers warrant it… Please put the word out to anyone you know.

The first Patreon sailing event is in the week of 17th Sept in Gocek, Turkey so those lucky to be patrons on our channel can join us for this great week of sailing the Turquoise Coast of Turkey with us on our Leopard 45!!! Join up if you want to have those opportunities…

Our Patreon option starts from only $3 per week, and will allow our supporters to enjoy live updates, join us for sailing events in Gocek, Turkey (Sept 2023), Aegean Greece, May 2024. Then in Dubai Jan 2025 (aboard the new Portofino 52) join us for the launching party and test sails!!! We are also offering boat build tours with sailing off Dubai to share the progress of the P52 build and provide whatever sailing or life discussions that YOU want us to provide during all of these events….. It is a very exciting prospect and we have been requested repeatedly to give advice, take folk sailing, teach sailing techniques etc etc…. So here it is!!!

Any Patreons will have the choice to join us for these events which are usually about 5 days to be up close and personal with Eli and John and learn from their expertise… There will be sailing trips, excursions and chats during the events and the subjects will be designed to suit the participants that will be there. Patreons will receive all the sailing and talks with the Barefoot Doctors without any cost but will only have to cover their own travel, food and accomodation costs.

All Patreon proceeds go to Exqisit Life Foundation to support TUFMINDS Mental Resilience and Suicide Prevention Program worldwide.

Some come Barefoot with us on this exciting journey – now physically and in person with Patreon if you wish!!!

Binge watch and come barefoot with us as we travel and explore the planet, mostly from the water but sometimes through the minds of others as we provide aid and support where needed through the amazing TUFMINDS solutions!

The free TUFMINDS program is released as a smartphone program under the Exqisit Life Foundation Charity, a registered not for profit and requires financial support to fund the free program. TUFMINDS saves lives by intervening at the point of suicide and pulling everyone to higher levels of mental resilience, wellbeing and functioning. it also creates better attitudes, resilience and coping – all very important for sailors facing difficult situations at sea.
