i'd say Tahnoo is approaching the halfway point on her journey from Hawaii to BC. She has been heading pretty well directly north for 12 days, and on the last few days has gotten a good push from winds that are squeezed between the N pacific high pressure system & a low to the west. Hopefully they are far enough north to start getting some west winds soon.

i have to eat some of my words from the last post, because the next time i spoke to Bill on the sat. phone the crew were asking, "where is the canned fruit stored???" i can understand it though, when you're being tossed around by big waves, you don't want to open lockers or lift up the floorboards unless absolutely necessary.

They have not run in to fog yet, but it is expected at some point as they get further north & east; and not much other traffic, just a few cargo vessels that have passed by within 15 or 20 miles. Here's an interesting report though - friends on the sailing vessel Bidule, en route from Hawaii to Sitka, Alaska, reported a few days ago that a ship passed close by carrying a rocket in separate pieces. Maybe they are hallucinating, but that's what they saw....
