We tried to go around in July, but gale force winds prevented that. I came home for a few days before heading to Maui to bring Turicum back. I am going to spend the next month on dry land before teaching a couple of courses out of Sidney.

I have a great respect for the crew of the Navarino for diverting. One of my crew has some video. I will see if he can post it.
