Onward Again

We waited out two blows, one from the South that lasted four days, turned 180 degrees for two days from the North. The unanticipated stop brought the Japanese coast Guard to the port inquiring about our destinations. As usual very polite but overly suspicious of our intents. So now we’re on our way to Oaraii port, about 110 miles, an overnight trip.
The seas are calm with a long easterly swell with 1.5 knots of adverse current and no wind to help fill in the boat speed. Crew are doing well, happy to be underway once again.
We’re leaving behind new sailing friends who were so helpful and a real pleasure to be with. We will think of them often as they freely sail around Japan’s coastline in their Flicka 20′ sailboat.
Thanks for all the yummy food and safe wishes for our safe journey Mr. and Mrs. Yagi. !!
