Jim / Great sunshine and cool
The weather here in Kanto area of Japan has really been warm this year. While we normally have 10 or more typhoons coming through by this time of the year, only two have come anywhere near. It is expected that with autumn soon coming, the warmer than usual waters off the Philippines will bring some typhoons with it.
This may effect Deai's and my departure scheduled for 10-10-10@10:10 till later. But we will only know when the time come.
Went to Enoshima Marina today to pay the "rent" which runs at about $200/month for a 16' dinghy. Unfortunately, I am so busy I just didn't have time to do any sailing today. With only a few weeks remaining before starting the circumnavigation, I have a lot of things to prepare for the voyage.
