Back in Hawai'i, a long sail from the Marshall Islands via Tabuearan (Fanning Island). Currents and winds dead on the nose, over 30 days to go 1800 miles from Majuro to Tabuearan. Actually sailed nearly 6000 miles, tacking between 2N and 8N. One day I sailed 240 miles and only made 13 miles of easting. I got pounded the entire leg of this part of the trip.
The last leg to Hawai'i was one of the best sails, I never touched the sails the entire way, calm seas, good winds, nice weather. Nice to be home

I'm not a sail boater but I love reading about stuff like this. Can you put up some photos?

I have many pictures, had sent a cd of pics to Brian (MAX) a few years ago for him to post. I will try to post some pics in the next few days but have forgotten how to do this.
Any suggestions in this matter is appreciated.

Welcome back!


I recently realized that at this stage of my life I'm now wise enough to know better, but old enough not to give a damn.

"post some pics in the next few days but have forgotten how"

a) upload pics to someplace such as Photobucket.

b) copy the sting that begins w/ "[ img ]" and paste that string into a post here.

That should do it...

welcome back Peleka, long time but what a great adventure. You're going to have to tell us some South Pacific stories along with those pictures.
How long has it been, anyway?

Brian, Brian, WELL? ;-)

Spike, I am glad to see you are back home and still enjoying life on the wild side.
How did that valve rig work out for you?
It seems to me that you set off early in 2007.
Is that correct?
