What a Day

The word euphoria comes to mind. What a day we had yesterday basking in the glory of our first in division position. Might not last, but sure feels good at the moment.

Today, Tuesday, 17 July 2007, 0600 PDT position is 24N13, 132W08. Course is 260M, speed 7 knots. According to my calculations we went 182 miles yesterday (a new record) and it is 1419 miles to Makapu'u. Even though we are doing great, the halfway point is still more than a day away. Now THAT should be a party.

Psalm 104
Ask Caroline to look this one up...

...........
24 How many are your works, O LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.

25 There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small.

26 There the ships go to and fro, and the leviathan, which you formed to frolic there.

HAPPY SAILING!!

This must not have posted properly yesterday... Psalm 65

5 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas.
6 You formed the mountains by your power and armed yourself with mighty strength.
7 You quieted the raging oceans
with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations.
8 Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy.

Blessings.

Confirming 182.4 miles per day! I consulted Cirrugator: this is your best result since 1999! Only in 1998 have you had three better days; the record to beat is 190.49 nm. Go for it!!!!
