Aloha from Aurelia, at 24 degrees, 20 minutes north, and 141 degrees, 4 minutes west, at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time on Monday, May 21.
After a week of exceptional 100-plus nautical mile days, the last 24 hours have gone a little bit slower, at about 85 miles. Our weather routing service predicted light and fluky winds about now, and they were right. The good news is that with each passing mile, the winds get better, more consistent, and somewhat stronger.
As the crow flies, we now have 945 nautical miles between us and Honolulu, a bit over 1,000 miles to go, with all of the usual zigs and zags to follow the wind. At this pace, we could be hailing Diamondhead by May 30 or 31.
Mahalo from Aurelia and the Hawaiian Eye Foundation.
John’s voyage is meant to raise awareness of the similar “expedition” surgeons undertake when converting to electronic health records and will also support the work of the Hawaiian Eye Foundation.
