    Default Return Delivery

    As of today, you can still track two boats, TEMERITY and SEAZED ASSET on the SHTP tracker. Both presently heading north and making good time coming home from Kauai.

    Shoot didn't know they could keep the trackers. Mouton Noir is also on its way back. Tracking it via Pacific Seafarers which is only once per day. All seem to be doing well.

    return tracker rental was a paid option on the original jibeset registration. Both boats making good time as of today.

    I suspect Mike paid but didn't pay attention. I clipped it off as soon as he got there. Oh well.
    Mouton Noir reports Seazed Asset is have auto pilot problems. Evidently the clutch won't engage. At least that's what it sounded like he said. Hand steering. Hope they get it fixed.

    Temerity has overcome Seazed Asset's East and North lead, and is now about 40 nm north of Seazed. They are about 600 nm due north of Kauai, still heading up to go over the High. Here are a few recent communications...

    =================

    All seems ok. Slow going. Weather looking ugly if the high stays north.
    Winds below 25 so far.

    =================

    Race on, we are chasing Seazed.

    Michael left same day we did. He has 300+ gallons of fuel and is using
    it all. He is about 60 miles ahead as of last night. We did a VHF to SSB
    through Eliz. Ann last night.

    I spoke to Brian on VHF as I passed him coming out of Nawiliwili. He said he had a crew of two in addition to himself. Looking good when I passed by.

    Hopefully they didn't run into the Navy like I did coming around Kahala Point. It was raining with visibility of about 1/4 mile. A coastie comes up on VHF warning me to stay at least a mile away from the Navy ships. I was trying to be courteous but I couldn't see a mile and certainly could not see any Navy ships to stay a mile away from. There was no AIS so I kinda played cat and mouse with them for awhile.

    Its funny to see a little old Coast Guard cutter protecting the big bad Navy ships from us inconvenient Citizens. Apparently there was some protest activity regarding the RIMPAC exercises so maybe they were on the lookout for protesters.

    Anyone see this Rimpac video? Pretty impressive although God forbid you got caught in the middle of that. I can hear Mike Jefferson on the VHF: "Make a hole people, I am a sailing vessel under sail with limited maneuverability!!"

    Well the freighters are very cooperative about diverting course if they are anywhere near you.

    TEMERITY and SEAZED are both at near 40N now, just starting to get some East in the courses.

    Today's report from Temerity:

    No big news. Sailed on Pelagic wind mode for the last 15 hours. WOrks
    fine with your wind instruments. NEver have to touch the sheets or alter
    course manually as we sail along with an AWA = 45-50. m\V GLobal Lag
    sailed by at 0545 with a CPA of 4 miles. She altered course a tad to avoid.

    Winds steady at about 12. Have been sailing with the #3 and sometimes a
    reef, or not, in the main for this entire trip. Likely the bottom paint
    on the port side is worn off from so much use.

    I find the twin anchors on Mike's bow pretty intimidating, even the Navy wouldn't like their paint scratched.
