Aloha. Kaneohe

VALIS departed Kaneohe Bay today (Thursday, Aug 7) just before Noon, Hawaii time. Neptune’s Daughter, Dart, and Bequia were on hand to help us cast off, and wave Bon Voyage. Our crew is Paul Carson, Oliver Petzold,  Aaron Guiterrez, and me (Paul Elliott).

We are currently sailing in 15 knots of wind, with swells about five feet.  We are sailing about due North magnetic, with a speed averaging 6.5 kts.  We have a reefed main and genoa, mostly for comfort.

Our position right now (5:34 PM, PDT) is 21deg 40min N, 15deg 46min W.   More to come…
