Monterey to Hawaii in 40 days sailing 4,960 nautical miles.

40 days and we arrive in Waikiki on August 2nd as an escort to team Fat Chance as they cross the line at Diamond head approx 0633 local time. 24 hours to clean, provision, good nights sleep. Say farewell to British Dave and Bristol Billy, it was amazing and wonderful to have you aboard. Good times and great guys and new friends. We picked up two locals from Maui my bud Jason hooked up. Sonja and Kabu. Real cool people and happy to have them with us. Sailing off from Waikiki to find Pacific Warriors and Boatylicious. Winds over 30kts right out of Oahu. We plan to navigate between Lanai, Molokai up past Kapalua, Maui then out 100nm from there. This leg will take us about a week then back in Waikiki on Friday, 8/8. My wife will be in around noon and I cant wait to see her. My 24 hours in Waikiki on land felt like an eternity as I was wanting to get back out on the seas. Noise, crowds, and stillness made me dizzy. So looking forward to the constant rocking and rolling, sounds of water running and splashing along the hull and quiet star lit nights.
