Day 3 Weeeee!
05 July 2017 | Pacific Ocean
We are 1966 miles away from Hawaii. We put up the spinnaker this morning once the wind started to move aft. We are pushing along at a very nice 7.5 knots in calm seas. The weather has been great so far. Everyone has been settling into their watch schedules. We do a four hour shift, where you drive for 2 hours, crew for 2 hours, then sleep for 4 hours - you get pretty punchy after a while. Ted and I are normally on opposite watches and up with Tony and Jim. Jim has PHD in physics which makes for some really good jokes. This is also his first crossing of the Pacific, so as history goes, there will be a halfway party in his honor. Tony has been planing the festivities that may involve whip cream.
