First SSB Update for our blog

Frank and I delivered the boat to Port Angeles today. 75 nm of mostly motoring - very scenic with the mountains and a few jumping whales.

Since alongside we have flushed the watermaker for the first time and got the cantankerous refer working again. Joe has joined us and Liz is delivering Eric and Henry up from their late flights into SEATAC.

Tomorrow the new heads get installed.

This is our first update via the Single Side Band (SSB) HF radio using Sailmail.

At 27/08/2012 06:18 (utc) our position was 47°37.79'N 122°23.68'W

  1. Exciting times for you! We just did the same trip (on another's boat), having been in Port Angeles and Neah Bay only a couple weeks ago.

    We found ~60nm offshore had a few fishing boats (not many, and no problem). At the same time, two other boats who sailed >100 nm offshore had much stronger (40 kn) winds. Cape Mendocino gave us bigger winds. Pier 39 in SF was not pleasant (Sausilito/Richardson Bay much nicer).
