He was about 30 miles from the gate last night, but apparently the wind died and he has drifted about five miles south. His last post said "Hello. I can not getting to port its calm abaut 25 miles from my boat for me its not clear shannon in san francisco or in washington state"

So, is he 2NM offshore and 42NM north of the Gate? That would put him north of Pt. Reyes and on the Mendocino coast. NOAA says not much breeze until Friday night - Saturday morning. If he is south, then he is off the San Mateo coast and he is closer to Half Moon Bay or Santa Cruz in the other direction.

He's currently about 10 miles sw of the farallons. In the middle of the shipping lanes. I don't think he was ever 2 miles from land .. .maybe 5 at the least.

Did his motor get pooped in the storms or does it not work? I can understand he wants to come in on his own, but couldn't someone drop off a few gallons of fuel so he does not have to sit in the shipping lanes?

As to when he will arrive, we have to learn to think in RDST*, which may not resemble "our" time.

With fair wind and tide, which will happen eventually, we will see him finish Improbable/damn near Impossible Voyage #2

Today’s weather forecast sent to Rimas at 1211 UTC (0211HAST / 0511PDT) via satellite: Friday: WIND=NW =20kt GUSTS at 25 kt, slowly DECREASING to NW at 15kt. SWELL=NW at 3m CONTINUING. - ATTENTION SHIPPING! KEEP YOUR TRACKER TURNED ON. SF=40 miles.

as he is approaching directly from hawaii, he wont be closer to shore than his miles off san francisco bay.
