HI-Christmas Island

Now a brief return to Hawaii while the Catalina gets some much needed general refitting to kill ‘Gremlins’ vs what should be a standard ‘pre-flight’ delivery checklist …

So next up is a single-handed delivery of Linda Pasquariello’s S&S 34 “Yemeya” from Hawaii to Christmas Island.  Its a business transaction to enable re-possesion of her yacht ~ return to Hawaii to retrieve it from Australia where she’s been working is quite difficult politically and visa-wise – use your imagination…

Then its the end of the line regarding S&S 34’s for me – I sold “Gitano” last year and have bought a Sparkman & Stephens Swan 38 – “Gitana Banou 2” – (watch this space come June 1st ’17.)

Ironic that Christmas Island will serve as my rounding mark north of the equator for my next solo round the world record to meet the ‘World Sailing Speed Record Council’s’ rules for minimum distance requirements of 22,700-miles…

The youngest nonstop solo circumnavigator – 16-year-old Jessica Watson used it as her ‘race rounding mark’ as well 😉
