999 Miles To Go

1:00 AM Aug 16 PDT Latitude 44d 20m W, longitude 145d 53m W Course 010d mag, speed 5kts We are about 925 miles due west of Newport Oregon.
Today we broke through the 1000-mile barrier, and the Tiki Drummer was practically frantic. We danced and clapped along to the Tiki’s infectious beat, and felt pretty good about being that much closer to home. This was also an occasion because we were treated to a great freshly-caught albacore dinner, with rice and a tasty salad. Not only is Lin a great sailor, she’s a great chef as well! Notice the stylish non-skid tablecloth.
It looks like the wind forecast is good for a right turn tomorrow, so we can start sailing directly for Cape Flattery (at the entrance to the Strait of Juna de Fuca). Every day we’re getting closer!
Best, Paul / VALIS
