Brrr, Getting Colder

We’re on our way to Kushiro, departed from mainland Ofunato port this morning. The winds are light from the east forcing us too far north of our rhumb line. So far we’ve been fortunate and were able to sail on course with very little tweaking of sails. We may be motoring by tonight as the fickle winds swirl all around. Hoping to make this a “quick” 2-3 day passage as the cargo ship, fishing fleet, opposing currents and dense fog make sailing around Japan a little stressful, especially at night.

The days are forecasted to be sunny but cold. The water temp is down to 55 degrees, the interior of the boat is cool. We’re wearing our base layers with lite foulies for now.

It’s John’s birthday but no cake or wine for a few days. We’re saving our propane for the long trek across the Aleutians.

Back to the sails, wind just died. All is good aboard Konami.

    How many days are you going to stop at Kushiro Hokkaido?
    I have met you at Amami port in Japan last year!
