Salacia: Day 14 - Under 900 miles to go @ Sail Blogs
by NewsReader 04-15-2006

Dee nor I knew that we had signed up for this amount of wind and sea. But, we're coping with it and moving along well. But, we are both quite fatigued. Since yesterday's post the wind has continued in the 25-35 knot range from the NE. This is blowing on top of 15ft+ swells coming down from a low pressure system up North. As well, we had a couple of nasty squalls after nightfall last night. Put this all together and you've got some exhausting work. I thought that the trip to Hawaii was supposed to be a little easier than this? As it turns out, I'm right, there are a number of very late season low pressure systems that are making this trip much more work than it should be. Direct Link
