Valerie's report - day 2

7 AM HST. Bill reported a "beautiful day" - blue skies with just a fringe of clouds. No motoring with the exception of turning engine on to charge batteries. It is pretty mellow out there.
They were able to communicate with Richard again and finally had success communicating with Lou Ickler. It is a great feeling to be 200 miles from land and be able to touch base with friends both on land and at sea. They are going to post latitude and longitude on YOTREPS ( and that should start showing up in the next day or two.
Lindsey's bunk is "getting better" (guess that means it is still wet) and they have another 2000 miles to go.
I will be traveling tomorrow - sadly leaving Brian, Kimmerie and Nicholas Edward but it will also be good to be home. I'll post again in a couple of days.
