ESL 116: Homemade Ship to Sail Around the World


Download


Hans Andersen, a life-long fisherman, had a dream. He wanted to sail around the world. And he did it. He got several sponsors who subsidized his trip. He bought a beautiful 40-foot yacht, with all the latest technical and safety gear, and had a pleasant voyage. Well, except for almost sinking while going around the tips of South America and Africa.

The voyage went so smoothly that, looking back on it, he felt it was too easy. He needed a new challenge. He decided to build his own boat. But that was nothing new. Several people had built their own boats and sailed them around the world. No, he needed a unique boat. Watching TV commercials one day, he got it—ice cream sticks! He would be the first man to sail around the world in a boat built exclusively of ice cream sticks.

He put out the word. Within three years, school children from all over Holland had sent Hans 15 million ice cream sticks. He used these sticks to build a 45-foot replica of a Viking ship. After all the sticks were glued together, Hans took his new boat out to sea on a one-week voyage. "It's magnificent, and totally sea-worthy," he proclaimed.

He plans to set sail in early 2008 with a crew of two. He will sail across the Atlantic to Canada, and then down to Florida and through the Panama Canal. Then he'll travel to Los Angeles, Honolulu, Tokyo, around the tip of Africa, and back to Holland. "If this trip succeeds," he joked, "my next goal will be to build a plane out of ice cream sticks and fly it around the world!"

He bought a beautiful 40-foot yacht, with all the latest technical and safety gear, and had a pleasant voyage. Well, except for almost sinking while going around the tips of South America and Africa.

The voyage went so smoothly that, looking back on it, he felt it was too easy. He needed a new challenge. He decided to build his own boat. But that was nothing new. Several people had built their own boats and sailed them around the world. No , he needed a unique boat. Watching TV commercials one day, he got it—ice cream sticks!

Hans Anderson, một người đánh cá kỳ cựu, có một ước mơ. Ông muốn được giương buồm ra khơi đi vòng quanh thế giới. Và ông đã làm được điều đó. Ông tìm được một vài nhà tài trợ đồng ý trợ cấp cho chuyến đi của ông. Ông mua một chiếc du thuyền xinh đẹp dài 40 foot, với các kỹ thuật tiên tiến và thiết bị an toàn nhất, và có một chuyến du hành thật thú vị. Ừm, ngoại trừ việc gần như bị chìm trong lúc đi vòng quanh các mũi đất của Nam Mỹ và Châu phi.

Chuyến hành trình suôn sẻ đến mức, lúc ngẫm nghĩ lại, ông cảm thấy sao mọi chuyện dễ dàng đến thế. Ông muốn có một thử thách mới. Ông quyết định đóng một chiếc thuyền của riêng mình. Nhưng điều đó không có gì mới lạ cả. Một vài người đã đóng chiếc thuyền của riêng họ và căng buồm đi vòng quanh thế giới. Không, ông muốn có một chiếc thuyền độc nhất vô nhị kia. Một ngày nọ ông xem chương trình quảng cáo trên ti-vi, ông đã có thứ ông cần - các que kem.

Ông đưa ra thông báo. Trong vòng ba năm, học sinh trên khắp đất nước Hà Lan đã gởi cho Hans 15 triệu que kem.

Sau khi những chiếc que kem được dán dính vào nhau, Hans đem chiếc thuyền ra biển thực hiện chuyến du hành một tuần. "Nó rất cừ, và hoàn toàn xứng đáng để đi biển," Ông tuyên bố.

Ông dự định sẽ căng buồm ra khơi vào đầu năm 2008 với một thuỷ thủ đoàn gồm hai người. Ông sẽ lái tàu băng ngang Đại Tây Dương đến Canada, rồi đi xuống Florida và đi xuyên qua kênh đào Panama. Kế đó ông sẽ chu du tới Los Angeles, Honolulu, Tokyo, vòng quanh các mũi đất của Châu Phi, và quay trở về Hà Lan. "Nếu chuyến đi thành công," Ông nói đùa, "mục tiêu kế tiếp của tôi là đóng một chiếc máy bay bằng que kem và lái nó bay vòng quanh thế giới!"

@ chị HoangThiQuynhNhu thân mến:

Bài này, và mấy bài trước chị dịch rất hay, lại có văn phong riêng của mình.

Riêng bài này mình xin góp ý tí chút về phần bài tập:
Well, except for almost sinking while going around the tips of South America and Africa.
• Did his boat almost sink twice?
-No, it didn't.


Theo mình biết thì the tip of South America (Cape Horn) và the tip of South Africa (Cape of Good Hope /Mũi Hảo vọng) là 2 mũi đất khác nhau, một ở Nam Mỹ, một ở Nam châu Phi, nhưng là 2 mũi đất nỗi tiếng nguy hiễm cho tàu thuyền khi đi qua vùng biển ở đó.

Vì là 2 mũi đất khác nhau, vậy 2 lần suýt chìm nên câu trả lời đứng phải là : Yes, it did.

Image

Thân ái.

Xem lại câu hỏi mới thấy là mình đọc không kỹ đã vội trả lời rồi. Mà câu này dễ bị trả lời sai quá. ^_^

Thanks, anh phamdinhphung!
