Aloha, Hawaii

July 31, 2011

Tony, Connie, Dale – preparing for the Marshall Islands

This will be our last posting for a while.  We are departing for the Marshall Islands on Sunday morning.  It’s approximately 2,300 nautical miles to Majuro, the capital of the Marshall Islands.  This will take us about 20 days as long as the winds remain and the storms avoid us.

Once in the Marshall Islands we have no idea what internet capacity we will find so posting something to the blog may not happen even once we get to the Marshall Islands.  However, I will try to at least get some text blog up once we arrive.

Again, there will be three of us onboard as Dale Chandler from Victoria will be joining us.  If you’ve been reading the blog from the beginning you will recognize Dale’s name as one of the crew who left onboard Sage for our first attempt at Hawaii.  Dale will be bringing along his ‘Spot’ locator which may or may not work on our trip across to the Marshalls.  I am putting in the link to the website where the Spot should show our location – http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0gYlXEHeqf6bYD52pncRieahn0zgixHD2.  However, don’t get worried if the SPOT either puts us in Singapore or shows us as non-existent.  It’s a new instrument which doesn’t have the best worldwide coverage.  So, don’t call the coast guard if we’re nowhere to be seen!

Till we’re able to add more to our blog I hope everyone has enjoyed reading a little about our Hawaiian adventures.  Until then have a great summer or, if you’re in the southern hemisphere, have a great winter.

    Fair winds, following seas and a large double finger of rum at sundown, dear friends. I’ll patiently wait to hear from you next time. Blessings upon all that sail aboard Sage.
