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!
101 did a fair amount of this in the Kauai Channel Race.
The Kauai Channel Race was EPIC! An absolutely awesome day of sailing in good trade wind breeze from Oahu to Kauai with two cool people. We had a fun day, placed third in class and had a blast in Nawiliwili afterwards. Now everyone’s headed home to Oahu and i’m prepping to leave US 101 in Nawiliwili for a while. I have a friend flying out here tomorrow and then i’ll be leaving on Wednesday to deliver a big cruising boat from Kauai to Seattle.
