2012 Singlehanded Transpac- Moore 24 "Hope for the Warriors" aka US 101 from Ronnie Simpson on Vimeo.
Provisioning Champ with our two-person kayak that we purchased for cheaper than 1-day of renting... Gotta love island connections :)
Well, summer vacation is officially over and i have to get back to work.... But at least work involves sailing a boat across an ocean! The boat is fully provisioned and we are ready to leave Hanalei Bay en route to Seattle. Forecast looks kinda ugly; the Pacific High looks really disorganized and fragmented. Oh well, we've got a big diesel at our disposal. The boat that we are delivering is an Island Packet 380 named 'Champ' that raced in the Singlehanded Transpac this year. The owner/ client has been great, my crew/ friend Heather has been great and the boat seems great, so all in all, i'm pretty stoked on the delivery. Should be a good time! The boat is equipped with an SSB and radio modem, so I plan to do some blogging once underway. Hoping for decent breeze, hungry fish and a good passage!!!
s/v Champ out.
101's final resting spot for the summer, in Nawiliwili, Kauai. Thanks for a great summer of sailing, 101! See you in a couple months!
