First two days: 370mi, then 160, then 180, then 140, then 180. YMMV.

Also, I have relayed your posts. Still awaiting microwave confirmation.

microwave

last i remember he still had the microwave on board. tow generator, two super solar panels, and a hell of a lot of other electronics. he is flying by the radar and a nifty buzzer that lets him know if anyone is within 12 miles... also all of his charts are on a tiny little computer chip he slides into the laptop. he likes the electronic mode.. i myself am a bit more trad. i like night watches, 15 min horizon scans, and paper charts. once i get my skills down with taking sites better, i'll ditch the gps. but its a big ocean and room for all types out there... even ones with microwave ovens.

Day 7 - Simon evening Update

Hi - Just wanted to pass on Simon's latest position as of 9 pm Pacific time. He was located at 24 deg 28 min N and 129 deg 17 min W traveling on a course of 170 deg. The wind was about 10 kts (or lighter) during the day but increased to 16 kts over the last couple of hours. Seas are still confused. He's making about 6.5 kts.

Bubb2 - we passed on Courtney's wishes to Simon and he was very appreciative.

And we verified that he does indeed have the microwave - but he hasn't used it yet underway.

Basically he just really seems to be enjoying the adventure. Makes me miss our passages.

That's it - we'll be at Kaboom tomorrow but plan to talk to him again at 8pm (tomorrow that is).

Melissa

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

ted,

Hope you didn't take my comment the wrong way. There was a thread some time back about microwaves on board and the joke was real sailors did not have microwaves, just dock sailors like Cam and CD. Being new here you would not know it but it is just ribbing.
