4 days and counting

current position is 45* 13'N 141* 42' W COG 069T speed 7.0 knots

We can see clearly now the rain is gone! sun sun mister golden sun shining down on us!!! and we are happy to see him!!

We actually passed Malachi early this morning, they are catching us - just a mile behind us now, but still we passed them!! A little friendly competition is always good. But the fact remains that they are a faster boat and will pass us again ...... we just had more sail area up last night. anyway , we expect to be in the high late tomorrow or Sunday. we will motor at that point , until then we have had a lovely sail...

all is well, just 4 days to go...........

Looking forward to seeing you guys. When will you arrive in Vancouver? We're in Ucluelet July 25th - 28th and heading to Shuswap on July 29th. Are you making any stops on Vancouver Island?

How exciting to be almost home, BUT, I can't imagine (well maybe I can) the sadness that the 'dream' is over.
It's been so exciting following you and a few other boats too!!!
