Cool Float Plan

Float Plan: Departure from St. Francis YC at high tide on or about May 3rd, weather permitting. Outside the gate we will take a course of approximately 221 degrees true to our first waypoint at 29.59 degrees North X 129.59 degrees West. From there our course should be 248 degrees true to waypoint #2 at 25.59 North X 139.59 West. We will continue on course 248 from there to waypoint #3 at 22.02 North X 150.01 West. From Waypoint #3 we will proceed to our expected landfall at 20.29 North X 155.54 West. Our first planned stop is at Kawaihae. We customarily take our time so we expect to cover the roughly 2500 miles in 30 days which will put us between Maui and the Big Island the first week in June.

After June 30th, if we haven't been heard from, The Coast guard will want to know:

The sailing yacht “Lealea” is an Albin Vega 27, USCG No.1167966, call sign WDD7505. She is equipped with VHF radio, AIS receiver and EPIRB. Lealea is 27 feet on deck, sloop rigged with white sails, navy canvas dodger and spray cloths. She has a grey hull with grey and white decks, dark navy transom and royal blue bottom paint. Photos at Going to sea, Cruising Lealea The Boat

I may or may not be back to post here before we leave depending on opportunity and availability of WiFi.

Aloha a hui ho!

Fair winds!! Sounds like a good trip.

I assume that by the detail provided in posting your float plan here, you're asking for someone on this forum to contact the CG if you're not heard from? It'll be an awfully big ocean to search if you won't be posting any interim position data.

Not really. We have informed friends and relatives who will assume that responsibility. We just wanted to show what kind of information the Coast Guard will request if a vessel is reported late or missing. Also to let our friends here at Sailnet know that we will be off line for a few weeks.

Ah, okay, it was just the way your note was worded. We'll all be looking forward to a trip report when you reach!

Smile You know what we always say about plans...

Thirty eight days from San Francisco to Kawaihae. Now in Honolulu. We took the scenic route. Dirt roads, pot holes and all.
