    I can imagine how much fun you must be having up there in that wind. As for the Farallones race tomorrow? This is the site I use. NOAA forecasts and Windy.com are scarier.

    Ray Irvine gave me one of his trackers early on and hasn't asked for it back. I just leave it on my boat plugged into one of my two usb ports. It is a coastal tracker, though, and I don't know if it...

    Don't know how many of you have been following Cliff Shaw s/v Rainbow? He has diverted to Honolulu, and is asking whether there are any SSSers thereabouts who can advise him regarding berthing.

    Little boy blue,
    Come blow your horn,
    The sheep's in the meadow,
    The cow's in the corn.
    But where is the boy
    Who looks after the sheep?
    He's under a haystack,
    Fast asleep. Mother Goose

    Too bad your account doesn't let you post photos. Good thing I can see Surprise! from my boat. Personally? I think the business of communication is better handled ... well, in person.

    Cliff Shaw seems to be west of Baja. While Rainbow is not (ahem) a particularly fast catamaran, it seems to me that she is making good time. Not fast, not slow.
