ProjectPacific: Day 13



Happy Canada Day!  We’ve had a double celebration here, as we have reached the halfway point between Victoria and Hawaii!  We are hoping the next half will be the shorter half.  That’s how it works right?  Although we miss the lush green trees, the jagged mountains and the green sea that our lovely home has to offer, we made the most of our surroundings with our half way celebrations!  Even Henry the friendly neighbourhood bird was invited, the flying fish, and of course our turtle friends.  Although we didn’t share our beer with them.

We are back on a westward tack after the successful 24 hours of southing.  Turns out there is a potential hurricane forming off the Baja peninsula so it is just as well.  We should be well clear of it by the time it has the potential to wreck havoc.  I think I just heard Fenwick Light sigh in relief.

Christine’s note:  I am feeling really good about where I have them positioned relative to the high (no wind zone) and  I am expecting this to be a faster half indeed.  Tonight I book my flight!

And here is the tropical storm starting to form … this is the Windyty prediction  for Monday.  If I am not worried (and I’m not!) you shouldn’t be.  They are well north of this and by the time it shifts north, Fenwick Light and her precious cargo will almost by there and well clear.  I will keep you posted.

    Nice to hear you are well positioned. Nice Job Christine!

    It looks like the second part of the journey may well be at little quicker based on the wind currents. Let’s hope you catch a few fish along the way to add some variety to your diet. May you continue to experience safe travels and most of all keep well!

    What an amazing journey and example of teamwork, especially being so far away from one another! I have enjoyed the readings immensely. I feel as if I’m right there with everyone. I look forward to hearing more about your journey and the crazy adventures, with wind, cargo ships and whales!
