At 0740 on September 5, 2014 after eighteen days after leaving Honolulu I have returned to the San Francisco Bay and am reunited with my lovely wife who had to endure the three month expedition that began on May 31 in support of The Great Pacific Race which included a total of 75 days on the water between San Francisco-Monterey-Hawaiian Islands and back to San Francisco racking up 8,945 nautical miles (9,840 statute miles) between three crews facing heavy weather conditions each leg. It has been an adventure of a lifetime but I’m so happy to be home…
