Good to be back at sea. Merry Christmas to  you all. Cheers Glenn!

Glenn assures me his galley is now filled with fresh tropical fruit and ‘a few treats’ for the passage to Hawaii.

He’s added extra fuel jugs in anticipation of motoring through light air at the Equator and Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZs) ahead.  

Expected arrival in Hawaii, end of January.


Here he is on the InReach tracker ‘eye in the sky’.

    how can we meet in the most isolated spot on this blue marble at the same time and not have a beer?
    Looking forward to your details….

  3. Safe journey Glenn. I have been following all of your adventures closely and I envy you more than a little. I have been intrigued by the ocean since I was a small boy and if it weren’t for being exceptionally prone to sea sickness, I would have embarked on such adventures myself many years ago. Your postings are very interesting – please keep them coming! A very merry Christmas to you.

  4. Merry Christmas Glenn, Marylou and family, and have a lovely solstice evening beneath the stars!
