s/v Champ resting in her home port of Shilshole Bay Marina in Seattle. 23 days and 3,100 nm from Hanalei Bay, Kauai. :)
S/V Champ is safely tied up in Seattle! After a gnarly yet very educational approach to Seattle, we finally made it to the marina at about 10 AM on Sunday morning. Pretty darn happy about this trip. It was long, sometimes boring, and a lot of work with just 2 people on the boat, but in my mind the trip was absolutely fantastic. This was my first paid delivery as captain, and it’s safe to say that I have found a new line of work. I really, REALLY like delivering boats and am going to begin seeking out a lot more deliveries. Also, this was my 6th crossing of the Pacific Ocean in the last 27 months. Stoked on that! This was also my longest sailing trip ever, both in terms of time (23 days) and mileage (3,100 nm).
