We left our slip at around 1:30 PM on a beautiful San Diego day to the well wishes of many supporters. The sail out of the Harbor was the best we ever had- seven knots no tacking. We were even accompanied by dolphins.
However, circumstances changed the next day as is often the case and sailing and life. We found ourselves in flat seas with little or no wind. We Experimented with various sail arrangements and approaches And have managed to come about 180 nautical miles since departure it being now 9:30 am Tuesday morning (Pacific Time) . We are about 75 nautical miles north of Guadalupe Island and are motoring about 4.5 knots in the hopes of catching good wind predicted for that area that might hopefully give us the boost we need to finally get into the Tradewinds and head west.
美しいサンディエゴから大応援団の祈りを背に、2月24日 午後1時半ごろ出航しました。港からの出だしは7ノットでタッキング(船首を旋回させる行為)する事なく、 今までで一番良い出航が出来ました。そればかりか、イルカ達も一緒に泳いでくれるというサービス付き。
