Our Noon to Noon run was 195 miles- which we are pleased about- the wind has been in the 20-25 range- we are sailing on a course of 180 and managing 8.5 -9 knts- - a 6 to 8 foot wind swell is hitting our port side quarter so we a moving around quite a bit- this does seem to be abating so the wind may start to back off as well. We are currently sailing with a reef in the main and the head sail rolled down to the second hash mark. Everyone is fine, albeit a little tried. We are starting to think about our arrival in Hiva Oa in a week to 10 days. This will most likely be the last time any of us undertakes a voyage of this duration- but of course who knows- Gavin, Paloma and Teyber have a lot of years and adventures ahead of them. Thanks to all of you for your comments- it is nice to stay in touch and have a conversation.

We are here-at the moment

LISTEN TO THE MUSTN'TS Shel Silverstein Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child, Listen to the DON'TS Listen to the SHOULDN'TS The IMPOSSIBLES, the WONT'S Listen to the NEVER HAVES Then listen close to me- Anything can happen, child, ANYTHING can be a sailor is an artist whose medium is the wind- live passionately, even if it kills you, because something is going to kill you anyway- --Webb Chiles --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You’ll never stumble upon the unexpected if you stick only to the familiar.” ― Ed Catmull--------------------------------------------------------------- In the artificial world of his cities and towns, man often forgets the true nature of his planet and the long vistas of its history, in which the existence of the race of men has occupied a mere moment of time. The sense of all these things comes to him most clearly in the course of a long ocean voyage, when he watches day after day the receding rim of the horizon, ridged and furrowed by waves… And then, as never on land, he knows the truth that his world is a water world, a planet dominated by its covering mantle of ocean, in which the continents are but transient intrusions of land above the surface of the all-encircling sea…Rachel Carson--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.------------------------------ Steve Jobs--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride!'" Hunter S Thompson
