And so it was another beautiful sail with my family while I’m visiting Hawaii. Home is where the heart lies thus Australia is ‘her’ for now!

…And an IMOCA Open 60 update before the upcoming ‘La Banque Postal Route du Rhum Race’ which I aspire to race one day in the not distant future. Below computer image illustrating the aft ‘hydro-generators aboard everyone’s dream boat – the VPLP designed IMOCA Open 60 ‘Safran’ (below). With solar, hydrogen, wind and hydro, a solo circumnavigation without burning any fossil fuels whatsoever isn’t just possible today but rather – its a performance enhancer by enabling weight reduction alone (diesel fuel = 7lb per gallon) With water-makers perfected, we only need a better fishing regime for food and a rum maker and we’d never have to come back to land/’dirt’ but stay at sea or in some secluded anchorage in the Tuamotus Islands forever!
