Day 26

Todays reading:

Distance traveled since yesterday:  129 miles
Distance to destination:  1,674 miles
The genoa unfurled itself partway so it had to come down. Dick went out onto the cross-tube to pull it down while I was at the mast with the halyard and winch. But, it wouldn’t come down. Perhaps there was a hockle (a kink in the luff inside the extrusion - aren’t boat words amazing?). So Dick had to tie it off as best he could.


  1. Hard to believe their luck, but that forecast I look at shows the winds from their current position all the way to Hawaii weakening and staying light through at least next Sunday. At least they are staying steadily to the WSW.


  2. Hope you put the auto pilot back in Dick.
    Cant imagine cruising that far/slow with the need to manual steer.
    Hope all is well and you are resting OK.

    You will be able to sell all that dried fish in Hawaii. ( you did take enough fishing gear didnt you, Ha )
