Christmas Island & Swan 38

Good ten day solo sail Hawaii to Christmas Island. Not much there but very friendly people and some great local dancers – Linda was ecstatic to get her boat back and head for Vava’u, Tonga single-handed (2nd time she’s done the Pacific solo but different boats).

I flew back to Honolulu on the weekly flight on Fiji Airways and allocated my Swan 38 still named “Swan” (picture below πŸ˜‰ !! I promptly sailed her solo from the windward side of Oahu around to a new location on the leeward side of the island…

She’s a veritable missile vs my previous ’34…I can’t imagine or wait to do successive Rolex Sydney Hobart races with her in the years to come!

I ll sail her down under at the end of this year or early next summer dependent on my upcoming yacht delivery schedule and base her in Sydney as I process my duel citizen-ship thus sailing for Australia next time @round__________/)_/)
