Non-stop focus while floundering in the Atlantic

Non-stop focus while floundering in the Atlantic

28 Nov 2016

When sailing a Vendée Globe, weather conditions, sleep deprivation, isolation, as well as physical and emotional fatigue are certainties. Rich combats this with hardened instinct, sharpened through his experience. Powerling can relate to this, as non-stop focus has been an essential requirement in order to deliver consistent results and remain agile and adaptable when confronted with challenges. One of these has been the daily translations of ship logs and newsletters during the race, where speed and quality are of equal importance.

Het is 11 november, vijf dagen na de start van de race, en Rich is zojuist langs het eiland Madeira gezeild. Hij heeft tot nu toe 234 zeemijlen, oftewel 433 kilometer, met zijn boot de Great American IV afgelegd. De nodige uitdagingen zijn al overwonnen en er zullen ongetwijfeld nog veel meer beproevingen op zijn pad komen. De schippers kijken erg uit naar de grote snelheden die ze in de Zuidelijke Oceaan kunnen halen.

He has already faced quite some challenges and there is no doubt there are more ahead. The skippers can look forward to faster speeds in the Southern Ocean, even though incredible speeds have been achieved already in the trade winds – a clear acceleration – since passing Madeira.

In Focus: Formatting the Date

1 Oct 2014

A common source of errors when translating or writing in English: the date! Of course everybody learns this in their first year of English lessons, don’t they? But they mostly only remember that it’s rather complicated. Most English teachers don’t even get round to pointing out that English and American usage differs. Some of their students only find out the difference when it’s too late: when they think they bought a ticket for 6 July and it turns out that it was actually for 7 June. Sometimes it pays to book last-minute.
