Day 2? What? Anyone?
13 March 2013 | 19 40.918'N:158 36.215'W, Pacific Ocean
The winds are blocking us from Oahu and the Hawaiian Yacht Club's guest dock, so we are on a course for Kauai! Miles wise, it's 40 miles further. However, the track I'm on to Kauai and Nawillwilli harbor also keeps me in a good position in case of a wind shift to the east. Kinda a win win deal. Worse case, we dock in Kauai and take on fuel, rest up,clean up get some decent food,(cheeseburgers and beer!), then head to Oahu. It's only 60 mile between the two and with a full load of fuel not an issue in case of no are contrary winds. Right now I have about 10 gallons left, not enought to motor to Oahu, which lies due north,106 miles into a 8' swell and 20 knot winds. On this course of 340 true, starboard tack, motor off, 15 to 20 knots out of the north and making 5.5 to 6.4 knots! Could possibly make Nawillwilli tomorrow afternoon with these winds. That's all I have so stay tuned to this channel, see ya tomorrow with,I hope, good news!!!!!!!! Lynn
