    Hi Jan

    I think you sholud know where I am from the tracker. Is it not working? AIS and radio still seem to have reception problems. Position for Saturday 11 July 0700 PDT is 37 deg 50.1 min N 124 deg 58.5 min W

    SOG 0.9 kt wind calm, sea state glassy Distance to touch line is still 80 nm.

    Average VMG is 120/45 = 2.67 kt

    Thanks

    David

    OK, I know what you mean though the tracker signal and these emails rely on the same satellite network. I guess I could have fallen overboard and the tracker would still work. From my recent track one might have suspected that.

    I've just hit a patch of breeze so knock wood it will continue. Also I raised a cargo vessel on VHF that was 15nm away, he said my voice signal was good and he could see me on AIS, so that is less of a worry now.

    I think I must be the northmost of the fleet. The J120 was doing very well early on, I wonder if he has hit the touchline yet.

    I'm getting COAMPS data for wind, it is supposed to be very light for at least 24 hrs.

    Best

    David

    PHONE CALLS from THE FLYING PENGUIN and MOUTON NOIR, both outside the Gate headed home. Quote from Mike, "It's just lovely out here, just no wind." Says the wind, what wind there is, is oscillating between SW and NW so he was sailing large angles to true wind so very little west was happening.

    John says he was prepared for 25 knots but not what he got. I posted his exact quotes on the Chatter forum. He's headed home and will be headed out of town soon.

    Temerity Report Saturday 2000

    Position: 37d 56.1m N 125d 52.6m W Course: 267 Speed: 4.0

    Check-In: could not reach anyone on ch 69 or ch 16 at 2000 check-in time

    Still beating beating beating into light air. Less than 40nm to turnaround.

    Saw a whale at 1930. Whale was swimming north. Starting to worry about all the work I will be missing, I told them I'd probably be back Tuesday.

    Sunday 2000 Report

    Temerity

    Position 37d 51.8m N 126d 04.7m W

    Only about 30nm made good in 10 hours. The NW wind really needs to start!

    Heard some static on Ch 69 at 2000 but could not raise anyone.


    Made the turnaround at around 1000 this morning. Spent the whole of the day flying the
    spin in light air. Very hot and sunny, all in all more like a Hawaii day, but with
    very little wind.

    Lots of wild life, some as previously reported. In the morning, several big whales
    spouting an cruising along. Big single spouts , vertical like the smoke from a
    chimney.

    In the afternoon, 16:25 I saw a sea otter. This is pretty neat as I was then 179 nm W
    of Point Bonita. He stuck his head up to look at me as I went by.

    Several times today I have seen the fins of mola mola sticking up out of the water,
    waiving. They look a bit like the fins of sea lions. Also, some by-the-wind-sailors
    and other little floaty things.

    At 17:30 a pod of pacific dolphins came zooming up to check Temerity out. These were
    the two-toned kind. About 20 of them, arcing out of the water as they came, making big
    splashes and noise. They played about the bows for a brief time, but I guess I wasn't
    going fast enough to be fun for them, to they took off in the direction they had come
    after less than a minute. I saw the again in the distance a couple of hours later.
    Maybe they were rounding up some fish to eat.

    At 8 AM I was still about 6 nm short of the line. It had been near calm for several hours before dawn. Light rain showers as the sun came up, very pretty. I haven't heard anyone on the radio in a long time. Shipping is also sparser out here.
    As it happens, I will be hitting the line right at the longitude of the Golden Gate. This is not by intention, I had thought I would be further north. I guess I'll work out a return strategy after I study the coamps and maybe GRIBs this morning.
    Crossed 126d 40m W line at 10:04:50 PDT
    See attached screen clip from my navigation program.
    OK, now to start crawling home. At least with the light air, it has been fairly easy to sleep.
