South Pacific Planning Update

06 March 2009 | La Cruz
Allan
Over the past month we have been fine tuning our float plan for the South Pacific, working with friends and family to coordinate visits with us and make sure we have all the navigational aids we need for safe passage through the region. Here is the current plan, subject to change and the vagaries of mother nature.

Big news is that we will be joined by 2 crew for the crossing to the South Pacific. We had such a great time with Jan Selderijk on the way back up from Ztown that we decided to invite him for the the crossing to the Marquesas, giving us 3 qualified crew. Our 4th crew member will be daughter Alyssa who will join us for 2 months before starting summer school at Gavilan college in Gilroy.
