Go East - Passage day 6
10 June 2017 | Passage to Pacific Northwest
We begin our sixth day at sea with light winds and unusually calm seas. The significant change has been the wind direction has changed to the SE, allowing us sail NE towards our destination. Only problem is that we're sailing towards a big high pressure system. And since high pressure normally means less wind, we would ordinarily sail around it, but this is just too big. So later today, we expect even lower wind velocities than now. Our current position puts us roughly about 700 miles due North of Hawaii, and 1700 miles from the Straits of Jaun de Fuca. All is well aboard and with the calm seas, everyone is feeling better and we're eating well. Yesterday evening, our newest crew Shawntel caught a 9 pound Dorado (aka Mahi Mahi) using a lure she bought at K mart. How about that! Cheers from Huzzah!
