Settling in …

Tuesday, January 17, 2017



I’m here in the legendary and very hospitable Waikiki Yacht Club.

I am happy and very lucky to be here with my MaryLou and to have arrived safely. MaryLou and I have just enjoyed a coffee and fresh breakfast prepared by chef Jasmine.

I’ve been for an early morning swim in the pool, which overlooks the boats and Ala Wai Boat Harbour. I’ve done my poolside yoga lying in the early morning sunshine. 

We’ll spend the rest of the day working on West Wind and preparing her for her 6 month stay in Hawaii. 

Thanks for all your welcoming comments.

    Hi Glenn and MaryLou
    I have been a “Maui type” and have not been keeping up. What a feat of sailing.
    What a wonderful reunion for the two of you.
    Enjoy and we will see you back in Victoria
