almost there!

Day 15 Almost there,
Motor sailed 95 miles noon to noon. Knowing going faster would put us in Kiska at midnight we slowed down and saved fuel.
The sun treated us all day with warm (50*), calm sea, beautiful patches of blue breaking apart the monotonous grey clouds. Our last leg of this passage is ending with 15 kts of wind just aft of our beam, we have been sailing since 17:00 – (5:00 p.m.) and forecasted to last through the early morning hours. A very befitting way of celebrating our efforts.
Currently we are about 25 miles out, approximately 5 hours from Gertrude Bay. We plan on celebrating with a delicious breakfast, not oatmeal either, and a hot mug of coffee sitting at the calm table, not chasing our dishes.
We will post again when we are safely anchored. Keep up the rah rahs for us, greatly appreciated!

    Wow! I am so happy for you. I have been feeling your anxiety and relief since you left Japan. Job well done. NOBODY can take away the world class adventure from your resumes. Can’t wait to read your next posting. Javier.
