Sailing Home

VALIS finished the Pacific Cup. We had a great time and I will write about it all soon enough. Our stay in Kaneohe Bay was a real pleasure and the folks at the Kaneohe Yacht Club couldn’t have been nicer.
But now it’s time to return home.
VALIS left her KYC slip about 12:50 HST, and headed out into the bay. Dodging turtles in the Sanpan Channel, we reached the open ocean and put up our sails; full main and genoa. The seas were small, about 3-4 feet, and the wind about 12 kts from the north west. Skies clear, warm water — this is great sailing.
Our return crew is Pac Cup crewmember Rich, new guys Carl and Dick, and me (Paul). We have just begin the evening watch schedule, and are sailing a little east of due north at about 6 kts.
I still haven’t chosen our destination. It could be Seattle, or San Francisco. Either place would be great, and I may let the weather make the choice for me.
Aloha, Paul / VALIS
