    I remember doing that same qualifier in November 2009, for the 2010 race. It was hell. I've never been so cold or so sleep-deprived for so long. Five years later, after sailing two SHTPs,...

    I sailed back from Hanalei to Seattle on Idefix (Olson 30, no engine) in 2010. Our approach was to sail as close to the trades as comfortable and get no closer to the center of the high than the 1026...

    You're right. I was mistaken. I did manage to get mine through Port Supply for a little over $300, but it was through a commercial account.

    Yes, an em-trak B100, mounted behind the radio panel. You can get them for $200 now. I had it on silent mode most of the day, but put it on transmit at night and when I was below deck.

    I'm finally getting around to cutting some of my footage from the big pacific trip last year, and I thought I'd post this one up first, since it might be helpful to 2014 SHTP entries. I was getting...

    I brought my little West Marine 8ft inflatable to Hanalei (sailed with it in 2010 and shipped it in 2012) and just left it on the beach by the tree the whole time I was there, unlocked and upside...

    Yeah, I've been to the site recently to look for the results, times, etc, for the 2012 race and couldn't find them at all. Most other race websites have a big "results" button on the front page,...

    I'm glad they're getting rid of this penalty. I got a new chicken chute for the 2010 race, and I was seriously thinking of getting an asym. I would've flown it off the standard J-length pole. I think...

    Bob,

    Richard,

    Take my number with a grain of salt, it may have been as high as half an amp. I would get you an exact power consumption figure for the AIS, but unfortunately I've taken the unit off the...

    I had the em-trak unit on Idefix. Average power consumption is pretty low, around 300 mA, I think. I paid less than what I'd paid for a receive-only unit two years previous. It's tiny and weighs...

    We should be getting the crate at Marina Village sometime today. It is a little bigger than originally planned, so there should be plenty of room in it for last-minute items.

    I think in the past some people have put together a big shipping crate for less-than-container load. I'll probably have enough free time to figure out some of that, but we'll need a truck to get it...
