We had ne winds, to about 33 17N by 159 24W and then ESE -E winds, wind
went wsw about 37 35 N by 155 24 N. The N pacific high was nice and compact the whole time. Our route
was real similar to the one in cornel's book. The 2nd to last day (169 miles off Cape Flattery) had 35knts of East wind
, hoveto for 3 hours and then the wind went N and the NW. Had an awesome night of broad reaching, hand steering
with rock'n roll on the ipod and moon light. Nw wind held until Cape Flattery the next evening. Had to motor
down the straits.
Started seeing weird brown streaks in the water
at 37 55 N and 155 45 W, We charged the batts. a couple hours a day and never had a problem with garbage. All the junk was well spread out.
5 days of fog
started at about 38n 154w and ended 43 59 N 145 59W, right where our route crossed the great circle routes from Panama
and having a pilothouse was very nice. Bring warm clothes!
