    While we were in Hanalei Bay my iphone kept freezing up. Coulda been because its screen was cracked and moisture kept intruding. Coulda been. Brian told me to bake it, and I did that six times. Heated up the oven at the condo, turned off the oven, turned off the phone and left it in there for awhile. Then it would work again until it didn't.

    Luckily it kept working the whole time we waited for Will to finish. And we had a long wait, because the wind died. That was good for us on the Sea Squirrel II, no wind, I mean, because it meant we had a pleasant (but long) wait rather than one spent thrashing around, up, down, all around in the dark.

    Will's wife, Chloe asked for a video of Will's arrival, so I have about an hour of darkness with a tiny light in the distance. You're welcome, Chloe, and I'll put it on Vimeo eventually. In the meantime, here's Will's happy face once Greg and I boarded Sea Wisdom. One happy camper

    Happy indeed! Looking at the photo, I must have put 20 wraps around the jib furler, with no intend of unfurling the jib ever again! LOL.
    Really appreciate you all waited for me to cross the finish line that night. I'm glad I was able to closehaul without having to tack to cross the finish line. Tacking without the main rudder in the dark would be a challenge.
    I'm heading back to Nawiliwili this week to bring Sea Wisdom to Oahu where she will get some maintenance work done at a yard in preparation for the delivery crew to sail her home.

    Good to know, Will! Thanks for the update. My understanding is that the water between Oahu and Nawiliwili is challenging. I'm sure you want your beautiful Sea Wisdom/the Boat home again. Fair winds to you. We all wish you well.

    The "delivery trip" from Nawiliwili Kauai to Ko Olina Oahu is only 80 miles but we have 3 captains (2 USCG licensed captains + me) and my 16 year-old daughter. As challenging as the passage might sound, we might have too many chefs in the kitchen! I'm just sitting back to provide support to my delivery crew. But it will be my daughter's first overnight ocean passage. I think she is in good hands Thanks for the well wishes. I'm following Green Buffalo's progress, what an accomplishment to get back home!

    Hi Jackie, where do we download the high resolution files of the 6/19 race date photos?
    Thank you,
    Will
