Hey everyone! I am here in beautiful Hanalei after a very challenging passage. So many more details to tell you about, but I'll post more later when I get Kynntana back to the Bay area in August. After the first day, I lost the ability to download weather and was not able to get position reports so was flying blind out there. Got becalmed for 18 hours the first night (as did the whole fleet) and then again about 4 days later for nearly 2 days. I was trying to sail the Great Circle route to minimize distance (ha!) and to try to sail to my polars but the angles were ridiculous. After that I tried to maintain DDW in 20-27 knot winds and big swell. I started relying completely on AP rather than Montior but even that sometimes took me close to accidental jibe territory because of the swells. Saw at least 14 knots surfing down the waves. When I needed to rest, I had to set a more conservative approach. I was kinda figuring it out as I went. The first 4 days, I was pretty sick too. I don't know how I did in the race (heck, I'm sailing my home so it never really was about "the race") but I made it here in just under 16 days, which is what was the F38's theoretical time frame. The other Freedom (F30, Jacqueline, also from the Bay area) did really well and this was his second time at it. I plan to analyze all the tracks eventually. Practically no one flew a spinnaker. The winds just never really allowed it. I really appreciate all the comments here even if they might sound critical. I'm not overly sensitive because just saying "oh, you did great" doesn't help me to improve. There is so much I get from blue water veterans. I think my friends at home are also starting to think up good t-shirt slogans such as "I sailed to Hanalei and it only took 2461 miles to get there." So yeah, bring it on
Congratulations on finishing that offshore single handed race!
That in itself is a win or accomplishment.
Brava!

YOU DID GREAT!

Congratulations! You did great because YOU DID IT. I'm impressed... and jealous. You did something few even attempt. Well done, and well deserved bragging rights! You should be proud.

Re: CF Members in Single Handed Race to Hawaii 2018

Good on ya, Carliane! You've joined some very special ranks!

See if you can get some Stugeron, somehow, to avoid the seasickness for the return trip. Rumor has it it is available otc in Mexico (if you know someone there who could mail it to you), and via the internet, out of Canada. It is available otc out of England, maybe someone there could send you some.
