Day 13 Transpac 2017
15 July 2017 | Pacific Ocean
We are 226 miles away from Honolulu and looking forward to our arrival. We made the final gibe toward Hawaii last night and are doing everything we can to keep the boat moving fast.
We are supposed to arrive by early Monday morning, but it is difficult to judge arrival times from so far away. We are firmly in squall territory. You can see them coming over the horizon one after another. Today we had a 38 knot gust next to one, and just got our spinnaker down in time. We have our light spinnaker back up and and are pushing hard.
I looked in the fridge tonight and noticed we only have enough ice for one more happy hour, so we must be close to Hawaii. Capt Ron would be proud. We had our last chili tonight with vodka cranberry.
