‘Mexorc Race’ in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico mid-March aboard the Andrews 70 ‘Runaway’ then deliver her to LA. Then possible San Diego to Hawaii delivery of a cruising boat before most likely sailing Hawaii to Australia again on the same route I just did with “Checkmate” but aboard my Swan 38 “Gitana Banu”!
The ballistic missile scare I was awoken to in Hawaii yesterday reminded me of a yacht delivery to the Marshall Islands. While scary I had some degree of confidence our ‘THAAD’ (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) interceptor would knock it out of the sky… although it was a very LONG nine-minute wait for impact … either for incineration or salvation – 50/50 chance!
I witnessed a successful test of the system in the west Pacific years back while I loitered in the drop zone…click on this link for the blog about that trip: https://wp.me/p1pcMc-j
Happy New Year!!!💥💣 ’17 was a crazy sailing year: Rio de Janero-Antigua in January then BVI to Florida, Hawaii to Christmas Island, Hawaii to LA, LA to SF, SD-Mex and Mexico to Australia…I ve been at sea a year nonstop! Not forgetting I upgraded to my S&S 38👊🚨 To an even better 2018 !!💨⛵
