We left Ko Olina Marina at 8 am Sunday morning local time (18:00 GMT) and are now one day into our return passage to the mainland. Next stop Neah Bay, WA. I have to admit, my mind and body are not quite as excited to start this passage as the previous ones.We had a wonderful time in Hawaii. I was able to spend some time with my brother and sister-in-law, Gavin caught some waves, and Colin got all his repairs taken care of. I was having such a good time, I really was sad to have to leave. I guess the 3 long passages in 3 months is taking its toll, but this is what delivery captains must deal with quite a bit. I know, I know... quit my whining.

We have been experiencing winds averaging 15-20 knots as predicted but the gusts have been in the mid to high 20s, even breaking through 30 a few times. Waves are a bit choppier than expected too, but the boat is moving along well and we covered 155 miles in our first 24 hour period (even with having to motor for a few hours in the lee of Oahu). This is good in that we are trying to get north as quickly as possible to get out of Hurricane Celia's potential paths. As long as we get above 30-35N by the weekend, we should be heading into the colder waters where hurricanes don't like to wander. We just hope she doesn't get too near Hawaii, for both the locals sake and the two groups of sailors coming in on race boats.

Not much else to report at this time; no fish caught yet, no dolphins or whales seen yet, spaghetti last night was a bit spicy. There - you're all caught up!
