Nawiliwili Harbor, Lihue HI

Traveler is tied to the dock in Nawiliwili Harbor after moving around from Hanalei Bay where we waited out some tropical storms.  Our new crew member came aboard yesterday and we are spending time getting to know him and seeing the sights on Kauaʻi.  Randy is a vagabond rascal with lots of sea miles and many good travel stories.  The trades are blowing strong out of the east and are predicted to moderate by the weekend so it looks like we'll be getting the heck out of Hawaii soon.  
The yellow line is our predicted course.  Red is straight on a chart.  Blue is the great circle route.

Most likely the next blog entry you will get from us will be from at sea, via the SSB.   You should be able to track us here at this web site:

The FastSeas weather routing service is predicting our passage to take 21 days, 8 hours.

Everyone we've met here in Hawaii has been wonderfully friendly.  We are so glad we came.
