We are 1362 miles away from Honolulu and sailing along at 8 knots. The wind and waves are starting to build so we are getting some good surfs. The position report showed use still holding on to a narrow first in our division. There will probably be more position changes as we get closer to the islands. The winds are suppose to moderate in a few days.

I woke up to the great smell of breakfast burritos this morning ( Thanks Michelle) as we usually do, then I make coffee, like I usually do, and relive Jim who is on shift right before me. I ask him how's everything, he said it's like Groundhog Day, Drive 240 degrees. He was right, we have been doing the exact same thing, with the exact same sails, and exact same routine for four days.....weird. But today we are going to shake things up, cause it's Shower Day!. So after six days of aggressive sailing we took showers. I fill the solar shower and hang it from the mast, then we get a bucket of salt water. First you soap up and rinse with salt water and take a freshwater rinse. It is very exhilarating while surfing down waves at 8 knots.

We have all been having crazy dreams because of the lack of sleep and constant movement of the boat and loud banging sounds. Jim had a great one last night. He dreamed that we stopped on an island on our way to Hawaii. Why you ask, because there is a bar on the island, and we always stop there on our way to Hawaii. He is taking this bartending thing very seriously. We had vodka and cranberry for happy hour, fantastic.
