What a Difference a Day Makes

Man-Oh-Man is it ever cold. Readers in Hawaii will find it hard to believe but we actually tour the boat every hour or so to see if it is icing up. You get a lot of ice in the rig it could roll the boat over. (Just kidding.)

Wednesday, 20 June 2007,0600 HST position is 34N52, 146W01. The (light air) sailing course is 067M, 5.2 knots and the relative wind is 250, 6.6 knots. That would be a true wind of about 305T, 10 knots. It is 100% light overcast and the barometer is 1022.7, holding.

Another thing that sailors and non-sailors will find amazing is that the ideal course from Hawaii to Long Beach has black plastic floating ball markers located about 10 miles apart for the entire distance. We have also seen similar markers along the course to San Francisco. People have told me that they have seen the same thing on the way to Seattle.
