Vacuum packed!
We used space bags to save some space with our backup spinnakers. Works pretty well.

We had a good start. Larry’s strategy was good. Got all the way to the front of the start line toward sim land marks we had measured previously, then tacked right and headed for the north tower of the GGB. WE HIT 10 knots of boat speed as we crossed the start line. We passed most of the boats in our class before going under the GGB.
Our beautiful flag line became tangled in the back stays. With some effort we corrected this.
We changed head sails about 20 miles out as the wind increased that cost us some time. We have now caught with the fleet and are over... see the full post

Check-in 7/10 1510
Position at 7/10/18 1200 - 36 49.44 N, 125 51.50 W. 1,895.2 NM to finishWarren update as of 7/10 1510Here are two screen shots showing our positions as of 8am this morning. All of the other boats have now turned off AIS, so we are unable to track them, but get an 8am position report each morning. The big question, is how high to sail on this long reaching leg. The blue line is the computer generated course for Eliana. It is pretty far north of the shortest path to Hawaii. Eliana is the red target, and the shipwrecks are the other boats in our division. All 4 boats are well below the computer generated course. The... see the full post

Almost ready to go
We're in the final days prior to our start. Just working on some last prep details and loading provisions and sails on board. We've got the "for sure we'll be using these" sails on board today and are waiting for the latest weather forecast to determine what additional sails we'll load tomorrow.Lists and more lists! We now have lists of the provisions on board posted where they are stored.For those wondering what we eat, here's the menu.  If we're out more than 14 days... see the full post

Check-In 7/10 0230
Position at 7/9/18 2300 - 37 19.10 N, 123 55.96 W. 1,992.0 NM to finishWarren writes:Please check spelling for me :) Typing in a boat that is getting tossed around-in the dark- is hard. It might make some people puke. Wind has been 20+ knots for the past 12 hours or so. We haven't seen less than 7 knots of boat speed the whole time. Ride is bumpy and very wet. The start of the race was only about 10 knots, so we needed the 130% to get out of the bay. Before the race I thought we might consider changing to a smaller jib while underway. So we brought it out on deck to have it ready so we could change it quickly. We... see the full post

They Gone
It was a beautiful day for sailing. Very few clouds, temperature in the 70-degree range, smooth water and a nice 10-knot breeze. Eliana, her 3 division mates, and the various other Monday starters gathered around the StFYC line, lounging in the sun and waiting for their turn. Everyone made it out the gate without incident and spirits are high on our boat.The crew assured me that they would be sending updates regularly. You'll know if they don't when this blog starts talking about baseball and posting cat pictures.

Weather Challenge for Day 1
An optimistic fleet of 29 boats headed out under the gate late Monday morning under the watchful eyes of PRO John Siegel, start line chair Bobbi Tosse, and a host of volunteers. Pictures will follow. Some of the starters were already sporting reduced sail (“a bit premature,” muttered one race deck observer), but all were […] see the full post
