Heading steadily east …

Currently in a hotel in LA en-route to Seattle tomorrow to see my lovely S&S34 “Gitano” ; )  Spend a few days giving her some love then shaping up like I might run over to France to launch my proto mini #433 to do a fourth Mini Fastent Race in June and my 1,000-nautical miles solo qualification for the Transat 650 ’13.

The final decision in a few days…While I’d love to do the solo transpac and pacific cup the absolute priority bar none is to qualify for the Transat 650 – however still a chance to bring her to Florida later summer for the winter training/refit option – we’ll see…

…And below that – my first 1,000-nm solo qualification aboard #348 ~ ‘What is a warm-blooded Hawaiian doing at 52-degrees north latitude off the coast of Ireland, solo, on a 21ft boat,  freezing to death in the middle of summer…?!’  Having fun @ ‘Fight Club’!
