やっと来ましたハワイ島沖。待ちに待った嬉しい嬉しいハワイ島沖を渡航中です。当初はハワイ島沖150 km 地点を航海する予定でしたが、エルニーニョの影響で貿易風帯が南に下がらないと安定しないため、相当沖の航海を強いられています。しかし本当にここまでこれたことに感謝です。皆様のサポートにお礼申し上げます。

March 18th, 7 a.m. Japan Time, Day 22, Weather: Clear

14.45 N 154.05 W, NE 7 meter wind, Wave hight: 1 meter

Course: 255°, Boat speed 6.5 kts.

[ Passing 540 km off South Tip of Big Island around 9 a.m. Japan Time ]

Finally, we are off the south tip of Big Island. We had been waiting for this moment long time and are so happy. Our original plan was to go 150 km off Hawaii, but we were forced to go further south to catch up with the trade winds under the influence of El Nino. However, I am very thankful to reach this point, so I would like to send big appreciation for all the people supported us.

Our next goal is the International Date Line. Naomi has prepared a Page about the charity donation and expected arrival time quiz.

Please join and guess our arrival time in Fukushima!

  1. Hi Hiro. Miss you pal but great to see you going for your big sailing goal. Looks like you’re making good progress. Best wishes and God bless my friend. Jeff


  2. Aloha Hiro and Doug,
    it’s impressive to see how many miles you have covered in 20 days, fantastic!

    Following is an old Irish blessing for St Patrick’s day:
    May the sea rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your stern.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your deck.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    (We changed it a bit to be more nautical)
    Rob and Sandrine
