    Skip, I totally agree about the movie, Maiden. Patty and I saw it on opening night here in San Diego. The reviews said it might be good but it was even better than I had hoped.

    Great job Bob on first leading the race and then dealing with the autopilot and sleep issues. I hope this means you will be sailing to Hanalei Bay next summer.

    I stand corrected. Oh well, you can still be the second but then you would probably have to sail all the way to New Zealand to cross the "whole ocean". I think the SHTP is fine just the way it is. ...

    Gee Carliane, that does put you in a very select group. And the way I see it, in two years you could be the only female in the history of the world to have done it twice.
