Day 52 Forecast: Calm 23/10/13

 Oct 23, 2013

Position: 33.14 S, 173 57 W

We’ve had a very good run for the last 24 hours and it all helps to bring us closer. I think I may have focused on it a bit too much lately and there is still such a long way to go. This past week has been terribly slow and the forecast is for more calms. I will be glad to break away and get going.

    Hi Glenn,

    Wow I don’t know how you are handling the “down” times meaning not fast sailing times. Know that you have hundreds of people cheering you on, landlubbers like us that you have generously shared your time with. Warts and all. That is what makes it so genuine. Thanks again Glenn and Marylou. Hang in there. I know we are!
