3º 32.778' N177º 45.648' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 12, 2018 <BR/><BR/>The weather is very settled today, a nice change following the bumpy ride we've had the past few days. Winds are 12 knots out of the east, we are making 4 knots. Managed to tear the topmost strop connecting the headboard on the mainsy'l to the car, will need to rig that back together to get the main back up. Will try a dyneema lashing. A much more pleasant ride with a gentle rock from side to side with none of the crashing cross wave train. Very distant lightning last night and a couple squalls but otherwise a good evening. We are now following the rhumb line to Majuro. All's well on Tumbleweed. about 22 hours  agoShow

2º 37.284' N178º 9.36' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 10, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We have been enjoying sailing for the past 12 hours. This morning brought steady winds in the mid-20s and have now subsided to 20 knots. For some time we were making 7 knots under trys'l and stays'l. Our goal is to time our arrival to Majuro behind a low that may or may not be forming, depending on wether the GFS or European weather forecast is correct. The GFS model is projecting a low over Majuro with winds between 40-50 knots, the European models shows much less wind. If possible, we'd like to arrive over the weekend but that depends on wether we can clear in or have to wait for Monday for customs and immigration. After so many days of drifting it does feel really good to be sailing, though the waters in this region are confused and we are dealing with 2 wave trains at the momen. One wave pattern is pretty hefty and every few minutes we get a pretty good wallop that staggers us for a moment with a loud bang. All's well on Tumbleweed. 2 days  agoShow

1º 45.822' N178º 23.124' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 10, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We are traveling through prime ITCZ weather. The past day has been overcast, rainy, frequent squalls of high winds, lightning in the distance followed by patches of no winds leaving us rolling heavily in large swell. Sunrise was beautiful, brilliant red piercing the cloud bank on the horizon, reflecting across the sea off the clouds above the western horizon. Forecast is for winds to fill in by Wednesday, though we are watching a low that is to develop over Majuro Thursday or Friday with potential high winds in the 40's. We'll aim to arrive at majuro on Monday if we get the winds that are forecast. All is well on Tumblweed, a bit bumpy, but well. 3 days  agoShow

0º 50.424' N178º 38.124' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 9, 2018 <BR/><BR/>This morning we are sailing again after a night with a bit of excitement. We had a large 190 foot fishing vessel near us most of the night, with a strong current - up to 3.5 knots - we drifted toward them in the middle of the night and unable to sail we motored for two hours to put some distance between us. Where we stopped had stronger current than where we started and we were soon racing eastward on the current. They decided the fishing looked better where we were and came at us at 10 knots, cutting across the 10 mile gap in quick order. We motored again. They picked up their operations and motored uncomfortably close. We hailed them to ask how we could best avoid their operation but the language gap was tough to cross. They asked our destination, we told them Majuro, but that we were heading due north. They repeated Majuro, then at 10 knots altered course on heading for Majuro and disappeared into the night. What passes for excitement out here. We also had several squalls roll over us, distant cloud to cloud lightning, heavy rains. The full ITCZ package. Overcast this morning but we have a steady 9 knots out of the NE and are making 5 knots at the moment. Seas are calm but have a bit more action to the swell than we've seen in the past few days. All's well on Tumbleweed.<BR/> 4 days  agoShow

0º 16.05' N177º 55.902' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 8, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We are back in the northern hemisphere. Yesterday we crossed, then drifted back south, then recrossed, then drifted south, then crossed again, the equator. At the equator we put aside our fears of a monster from the deep and took a quick swim. The water was as warm as a bath and the clarity of the water was like nothing I've experienced. We had little pockets of cool water below the surface but it was very warm at the top layer. Tumbleweed was drifting at a knot but with the stays'l we could just make way northward, then the wind would die and we'd slice south again. Feels good to be back in the North Pacific. We had a nice late afternoon meal, made a toast to Neptune and considered the past 21 months we've spent in the Southern Hemisphere. We last crossed the equator heading south on our passage from Mexico, it was a bit after 22:00 if I recall correctly and a fairly low key affair. All is well on Tumbleweed.. <BR/> 5 days  agoShow

0º 4.116' S177º 30.69' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 7, 2018 <BR/><BR/>After drifting east with a touch of south we have picked up a light breeze and are making our way northwest once again. We have given up around 30 miles drifting to the east over the past few days so it feels good to take some of that back. Only 4 miles until we cross back over to the North Pacific. Our days of the South Pacific idyll are about to be in our wake. Looking forward to all that the North Pacific has to offer. Forecast continues to be for light winds for a few more days but we hope that this light breeze holds out for a while, we are making 2.5 to 3 knots over the last few hours and happily in the right direction. All is well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 6 days  agoShow

0º 11.376' S177º 2.844' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 6, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We are drifting 11 miles south of the equator. So close we could row Tumbleweed there. We could certainly fire up the engine and chug along there in a couple of hours. And we have been asked just why on earth we don't. We have enough fuel to make our way to Majuro if we needed to, we prefer to sail. The engine is noisy, hot and generally unpleasant. We love being under sail, especially out here when the conditions are nice. It is so beautiful out here with the calm undulating seas and the beautiful clouds ringing the horizon in all directions that it is not much of a hardship. It is hot and the slight swell does roll us from side to side, and we do have a current that is pushing us to the east at 1.5 knots, but otherwise we are fine with waiting a couple of days for the winds to fill in then we hope to have a pleasant sail across the equator and back into the North Pacific. Another very large pod of dolphins passed us last yesterday, it was an impressive sight, diving under the boat, doing mid air 360's, they were around the boat for close to an hour with wave after wave visiting for a bit then moving on. Last night in the dark I could hear a couple of them just out of sight off the stern surfacing and doing their explosive exhale/inhale then dive. It was like being followed by a pack of friendly dogs. All's well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 7 days  agoShow

0º 15.06' S176º 25.902' ETumbleweedGood afternoon Tumbleweed and crew, <BR/> <BR/>Wow.... The last few days have sounded to be as exciting as the current talk I'm listening to. D Y N A M I C.... <BR/> <BR/>All here is sailing along smoothly. Hayden won his tournament Saturday and is preparing for a big one this weekend. He should see state talent at this coming one. He also had also retaken the SAT and earned a 1340. Big improvement! <BR/> <BR/>School is going well for Sawyer and he will be out for Christmas break this week. I think I will twist his arm to ride with me down the the folks around the 20th. I know they don't really want to drive up this time of year and, frankly, we would rather they didn't. I plan to take them back the first week of January when I go back down to Portland for that meeting. In the mean time he wants to do some work around the house. We shall see about the last part. <BR/> <BR/>William continues to pack as much into a week as possible. Plays, choir performances, working a soccer tournament in Seattle this coming weekend, voice lessons, cast parties..... My god how does he keep up! Oh, and no grades lower than 96%. Breath son breath! <BR/> <BR/>Hope the winds pick! All the best. <BR/> <BR/>Love you guys, <BR/> <BR/>G <BR/> <BR/> <BR/> <BR/> <BR/> <BR/>Get Outlook for iOS<https://aka.ms/o0ukef> <BR/>________________________________ <BR/>From: Morgan Henry <tumbleweed@myiridium.net> <BR/>Sent: Tuesday, December 4, 2018 2:26:39 PM <BR/>To: Garrett (garretthenry@hotmail.com); mom bob; Morgan Henry; sawyerjhenry@gmail.com; Farkwar <BR/>Subject: Fiji to Majuro Day 16 <BR/> <BR/> <BR/>December 5, 2018 <BR/> <BR/>A pretty quiet and calm past day out here. We were again visited several times by pods of dolphins, both during the day and in the dark of night. The moon was an impressive orange sliver when it rose this morning, we had clear skies letting the stars shine clearly. We are inching our way toward the equator and looking forward to once again being in the North Pacific. Fifteen miles to go. With a bit of current in our favor and occasional puffs of wind that visit us we've been able to make some mileage by sailing but much of the past 24 hours has been more dependent on drifting in the direction of Majuro. The cycle is we'll have enough wind to sail for an hour or so, then the winds will wander off and we'll sit in a pocket of calm for a few hours, then on again. Forecast continues to be for very light winds in the area though there is some hope early next week to the north of us. All is well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 8 days  agoShow

0º 44.718' S176º 8.538' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 4, 2018 <BR/><BR/>Light winds but with a solid current boosting us along we are inching our way to the equator. Last night we sailed ever so gently based the island of Beru, getting the smallest glimpse of the island off in the distance this morning, a thin line barely breaking the edge of the horizon. We had been working our way around the southern tip and along the east side of the island through the night with very little wind but enough current to push us along. Our friends the Dolphins paid us several visits again last night. The sliver of moon that rose during my night watch was spectacular, set against a sky vivid with stars. Seas continue to be smooth with long period swell rolling underneath. Currently making 4 knots with 6 knots of wind speed. All's well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 9 days  agoShow

2º 5.664' S176º 18.42' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 3, 2018 <BR/><BR/>Another fine day on our passage from Denarau. Light winds continue to be the rule, though this morning winds piped up to ten knots and we made a mad dash to drop the whisker pole, tack and hoist all sails for the hour or so we had those winds. They are in the process of dying down and our speed is slumping from our exhilarating 6 knots to a more familiar 4 knots. With these calm seas the 6 knots with a very slight heel felt amazing after days of very little wind. Yesterday we passed the small island of Tamana, a tiny spot so removed from the outside world, we could see the roofline of a large building, perhaps a copra shed, shining in the sun, but otherwise all was quiet. It took us hours and hours to make our way past the island, skirting a few miles to the south before tacking up along the east side. In the light winds of yesterday is seemed at times that we were stuck to the island and would carry it with us on our hip to the north. Last night we were visited by a pair of boobies, just as Ed and Fran predicted, they squabbled noisily from their perch on the solar panel, crabby angry squawking , resisted our attempts to dislodge them with a bright light, defecated shamelessly, and finally under threat of a waving mop, flew off. Also visited throughout the night by several pods of dolphins, one group timing their arrival with the sunrise, surfacing and breathing noisily with a background of golds and reds, South Pacific magic. All's well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 10 days  agoShow

3º 10.758' S175º 32.682' ETumbleweed<BR/>December 1, 2018 <BR/><BR/>Slow going out here. Although the forecast calls for no wind we are enjoying sporadic winds that are keeping us moving north. Last night we had a few small squalls come through and were able to make 6-7 knots for a few hours, we also spent much of the night with the sails of the edge of collapsing. We are currently making 2 knots with winds hovering around 5 knots. We are on the edge of our ability to sail, below 2 knots we start to lose steerage and below 6 knots the sails are unhappy. But somehow we are managing to make mile after mile just on the edge. Maybe a current? The slow going makes for a kindly motion, we are just rolling gently side to side making tasks aboard a bit easier to pull off. Cabin temperature dropped from yesterday's high of 99 degrees to a comfy 90 degrees at the moment. Time for a pot of soup and a cardigan. All's well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 12 days  agoShow

4º 9.6' S175º 32.508' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 30, 2018 <BR/><BR/>This morning a medium sized turtle swam up to and passed us. We were drifting north at 1.5 knots when Douglas spotted the turtle off the stern. It slowly swam up to the monitor wind vane and caught sight of its reflection, it spent some time admiring itself and trying to kiss the shiny stainless version of itself. It spent a half hour dawdling alongside us with a small collection of fish gathered around. The sun was ruthless and I think it enjoyed the shade. Soon it tired of our slow speed and paddled off for the horizon. Wind has been light since the last posting but picked up in the last hour while changing direction. We tacked the Genoa and are now making 4 knots or a tad better. Hoping this holds. Seas are very calm, there is a long slow swell that keeps us rolling when the wind drops but otherwise we are comfortable. Night sky was amazing last night. We spotted a Chinese fishing vessel in the distance but it has drifted off astern. All is well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 13 days  agoShow

4º 53.166' S175º 29.214' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 29, 2018 <BR/><BR/>A calm day out here, light winds as forecast with a slight swell. Our average speed over the past 12 hours was 1.5 knots. We have just finished setting the whisker pole as winds have moved to the SE (by winds I mean air moving around 5 or 6 knots, "winds" sounds a bit large for the reality). This morning as the sun rose, pod of dolphins visited as they made their way west, a few would swim around the boat, spouting, diving under the hull, but as we were moving so slowly they soon were bored and moved on. It was a nice way to greet the new day. Moving slowly but still making progress, the whisker pole is adding a half knot or so but will come in handy as the wind fluctuates, below 6 knots the Genoa starts to flog and snap without the pole up. Current course over ground is 345, speed over ground is 1.5 knots, wind speed is 5.5 knots. I watched a large tanker move across the horizon last night but otherwise no sign of other vessels. All is well aboard Tumbleweed. <BR/> 14 days  agoShow

5º 50.31' S175º 41.052' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 28, 2018 <BR/><BR/>This morning as the sun rose we passed the small island of Nanumanga of the Tuvalu group. Winds from the north forced us to the west of the island by a few miles, it was a nice sight after so many days at sea. The morning light washed the sky with pastel pinks and light oranges with small well defined puffs of cumulus clouds on the horizon, like the cover to a Jehovah's Witness tract, missing only a lion sleeping peaceably among the sheep. The sea around Nanumanga was a bit choppy I think due to the elevation gain from the seabed to sea mount. Winds continue to keep us a bit more to the west than we'd like but we are still on the rhumb line to the Marshalls, we might have to make up some easting up the line but for the moment all is well. Forecast is for very very very light winds, as in maybe no winds, for the next few days. But we are in the doldrums, no surprise there. No lightning last night and only a couple short lived bouts of squally confused winds. All's well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 15 days  agoShow

6º 36.576' S176º 59.976' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 27, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We had an excellent day out here. Only two distant flashes of lightning last night and a few rain squalls. Last night we had a few bouts of flakey winds but for the most part we settled in with 14 knots, sailing close hauled, making 6 knots. The winds can be contrary though and our overall average is much lower. We continue to be squeezed to the west by the winds, we try to snatch back whatever easting we can but find ourselves dodging the islands and atolls out here mostly on their westward side. When the wind is up the sailing is the stuff of South Pacific dreams, making 6 plus knots over gentle seas, but when the winds drop out the sails slat and bang, Tumbleweed wallowing side to side in the swells, and it begins to drill down on my nerves. Happily, the dead winds have mostly been occasional pockets and we are soon back to sailing. Very little out here. A boobie investigated us a bit this afternoon, three nights ago we crossed paths with the tanker "Andes", a coconut, a length of PVC pipe, an adrift fishing float and a plastic bottle that looked like it might have once contained iced tea, have all drifted past as well. Today we had our last avocado, the fresh fruit has gone - much of it killed by the heat. As I write this we are being visited by a pod of dolphins, about 10 have been playing around the boat for a few minutes, such amazing creatures. All's well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 16 days  agoShow

8º 16.692' S178º 3.534' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 26, 2018 <BR/><BR/>One week down. Last night we passed Funafuti, it appeared as a warm glow against the clouds on the eastern horizon. We lingered some 15 miles to the west for hours as we dawdled through a series of squalls and were entertained by frequent displays of lightning. In the hours before sunset a series of cumulus clouds built along the horizon in all dirctions, towering systems with the tell tale black vertical bands of heavy rains under many of them. We had another night of squalls, light winds piping up in moments to 18 or 20 knots, winds chasing around us from all directions, intense rain. Light winds would come from the north for a few minutes then move around to the south, then back up to the north. At first each of us tried while on watch to keep working Tumbleweed around to stay on our northerly course but as the winds were light and we were only making 1.5 knots or so, each of us figured out in our time to drift in circles with sails furled until a legitimate breeze picked up. We were hit by many massive rain showers through the night. One that approached sounded like an army of beetles, the rain pounding the sea with such force it was like a million insects clacking until the rain hit and I was immediately drenched. Today was a slow but pleasant day out here, cloud cover helped to keep temperatures down, the few rain showers that passed were light. Winds are keeping us a bit further to the west than we had planned but we are still a bit east of our rhumb line. All is well on board. <BR/> 17 days  agoShow

9º 5.532' S178º 50.73' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 25, 2018 <BR/><BR/>A calm day of gentle South Pacific sailing after a wild night of lightning squalls that chased us for hours. Around 22:00 I glanced astern to see a massive black front had formed with pockets of lightning across the horizon. Douglas was off watch and trying to sleep but the lightning would fill the cabin with blasts of light that forced him from sleep. We spent several hours trying to dodge the weather front as it bore down on us. We were hit with a refreshing downpour before the winds died to a few knots. We ran under motor for several hours, the cabin was in the high 80's before we fired up the engine and opened the engine compartment to increase airflow, the heat in the cabin soared. I did not glance at the thermometer but I felt like a chunk of sous vide pork when I tried to catch some sleep. John Prine writes in "Mexican Home" about lightning burning the sky like alcohol and I saw the phenomenon he described - we'd have flashes of lightning that were like the blue flash of burning alcohol, sections of night sky going up like a flambé. Reefing, dousing, hoisting, reefing. It was a busy night. Today has been light winds, mostly under 7 knots. We are still making way - a surprising 4 knots or so on average. Slowly making our way toward Funafuti, should pass by the island early this evening. We have been trying to check in with a couple of SSB nets, we could hear Eric on Scoots very clearly but he could hear us this morning, we could also hear a yacht en route to NZ who came in fairly clearly but their yacht name was hard to catch, a mix of Kiwi accent and interference. All's well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 18 days  agoShow

10º 20.49' S178º 43.05' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 24, 2018 <BR/><BR/>Lighter winds today, dropping down below 10 knots, but still on the beam and we are making 4.5 knots on average. Funafutti is 130 miles to the north, seas are calm, sun is tropically intense. Lightning in the distance last night, today we the classic tropical sea clouds, giant cumulus building on the horizon into towering structures that look like nuclear detonations. 95 degrees in the cabin, hatches and port lights covered with tinfoil is helping some. Cooking is a cruel chore, Mexican food for lunch today but will consider salads for the near future. Full moon last night, watching the moon set while the sun rose with the sky cast in pinks and oranges was magical. All's well on Tumbleweed. <BR/> 19 days  agoShow

12º 40.644' S178º 14.466' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 23, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We have had an excellent run of weather the past few days, sailing average over 7 knots often making hull speed of 8 knots with 13-15 knots on the beam settled seas, comfortable. Last night was a full moon, made for a beautiful night on watch. Temperature is climbing but we have decent airflow and fans at full. The restored wind generator and solar panels are keeping us topped up. One pod of dolphins joined us two nights ago, many flying fish and sea birds. All's well aboard Tumbleweed. <BR/> 20 days  agoShow

16º 51.528' S176º 50.79' ETumbleweed<BR/>November 21, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We set sail from Denarau, Fiji for Majuro in the Marshall Islands yesterday. With headwinds we added a few miles to the 14 between the marina and the pass, tacking our way south. It was a glorious day to be on the water and with the mild headwinds the tacks were pleasant and it felt like a Sunday outing. After being in marinas the past couple of months it was ideal weather to work out a couple of gremlins. We cleared Navula pass around 17:30 and made a bit of westing to get us away from the reefs and islands west of Viti Levu. Last night and today continued the pattern of light winds, we've average 4 knots and at this time can still see the outer islands of the Yasawas. We'll be some time clearing Fiji. We have a large 80 percent waxing moon, it reflected off the clouds and was beautiful last night, it set around 4 this morning, red and glowing. A good beginning to the passage. Winds forecast to build later tonight but at the moment the seas are calm, winds are 12 knots, we are making 4 knots with all sails set. <BR/> 22 days  agoShow

17º 46.206' S177º 11.448' ETumbleweed<BR/>September 26, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We had a great passage from Fulaga to Musket Cove, on the west coast of Viti Levu. First two days of sailing were magic, full moon as company at night, comfortable seas, winds on the beam in the high teens. The tide had us departing Fulaga at 17:00, so we went right into night watch mode early in the trip, the timing of the pass at Fulaga and the timing of entering the pass at Viti Levu were a bit off given the great weather window. To have us arrive with light we had to add 70 miles to our trip and slow down at the last stage. It all worked out fine and we crossed into the sheltered waters early this morning. Last night was a bit of a wild ride - the seas built and the winds were gusting over 35 knots. With a double reefed main and stays'l we still sailed fast but all in good control. Looking forward to enjoying Musket cove for a few days, then look for a spot with access to Nadi and Lautoka for provisioning. <BR/> 3 months  agoShow

19º 8.364' S178º 34.542' WTumbleweed<BR/>August 31, 2018 <BR/><BR/>An excellent overnight sail from Taveuni brought us to Fulaga. This atoll in the southern Lau group is a keen example of the South Pacific fantasy - scattered islets of undercut limestone, topped with Dr. Suessian dollops of tropical foliage, appearing to hover over waters of the most brilliant aquamarine. We used waypoints from SV MeToo and from Curly in Savu Savu.Navionics was very accurate for the pass. Lots of coral around the pass coming in so good light and watch on the bow highly recommended. We entered at high water slack with the sun over our shoulder, 6 knots of wind, perfect conditions. Anchored in 14 feet of water, over sand, good holding, surrounded by several of the fore mentioned islets. Let's keep this place our little secret.<BR/> 3 months  agoShow

16º 56.112' S179º 53.928' ETumbleweed<BR/>July 18, 2018 <BR/><BR/>Tumbleweed has arrived in Paradise. After a perfect day of sailing from Savusavu we took a mooring at Paradise Resort at the southern end of Taveuni Island. We left at first light from Savusavu and after motoring through no winds for the first two hours the winds built to 14 knots and we had ideal conditions, the Koro Sea was near calm and we were sailing close reached on one tack all the way to Taveuni. The mooring is open to the Somosomo strait with wide vistas of the sea with Vanua Levu in the distance backed by Taveuni rising dramatically shoreward. We just went ashore for a loaf of bread and bag of ice, and the facilities look great, very welcoming. One navigation note - our chartplotter is acting up as we get close to the dateline at 180 degrees. Mostly very slow to respond to commands or redraw charts when moving around. A heads up to others heading this way - each system will probably act differently. <BR/> 4 months  agoShow

16º 46.656' S179º 19.86' ETumbleweed<BR/>July 11, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We arrived yesterday to Savusavu, Fiji. Feels wonderful to be tied to a mooring here at the Copra Shed Marina. The water is flat, the winds are calm. We had a smooth check in with the friendly Fijian customs/health/immigration/bio security folks. A lifetime memory will be of me ferrying three lady officials from the marina to Tumbleweed in our tiny dinghy. Lots of laughing and comments in Fijian from the ladies. Of course the outboard conked out several times after the rough passage adding to the humor and outbursts. A nice welcome. <BR/> 5 months  agoShow

23º 39.42' S178º 54.042' WTumbleweed<BR/>June 30, 2018 <BR/><BR/>We are anchored at Minerva Reef after a great week at sea and a particularly thrilling last night at sea. What a strange and wonderful anomaly! Out in the middle of the ocean, a small reef encircling a motu with a narrow strip of reef that is exposed at low tide around a pretty shallow body of water - we are currently in 40 feet. Feels great to not be moving after a week of being slammed around. Sighted two whales as we worked our way in to the pass. <BR/> 6 months  agoShow

27º 41.946' S178º 9.846' ETumbleweed<BR/>June 27, 2018 <BR/><BR/>Closing in on our halfway mark to Fiji. Winds have picked up the past couple of days, averaging 20knots with periods sustained in the high 20's, squalls hitting with gusts to 48 knots, well developed seas. It's been a bumpy couple of days. We've been sailing under stays'l alone at night and have handled the squalls fine. All's well on board, enjoying some sunshine. It's taco Wednesday, this crew is easy to please. Not much wildlife out here, a few Gannets skimming the wave tops and a couple others we have yet to identify. Moonlight has been a magical addition to night watches.<BR/> 6 months  agoShow

30º 14.286' S177º 24.828' ETumbleweed<BR/>June 26, 2018 <BR/><BR/> Beautiful day at sea. 20 knots of wind, well developed sea, Tumbleweed is settled and making 6 plus knots under Genoa alone, with a single reef. Last night was wild, winds in the high 30s, gusting to high 40's, made for a bumpy night but we made good way. Glad to have pre-cooked so many meals!

Makemo is beautiful, the waters clear - we can see to the bottom in 45 feet.

During that cycle we motored 3 hours and sailed 21. Winds have dropped to SE 5 kts. The seas have mellowed to a long wavelength swell at about 1.5 meters. While calm, at low boat speeds the swell induces a roll on the boat which can be hard on sails that aren't full. The whisker pole had helped, but now we have SE winds. We are sailing with just a stays'l --- it handles the rolling well, without wear. Making headway at 1.5 kts. That won't do.

On the bright side, we have always had enough wind to sail...even though we go just 3 kts. Found a little bit of chafe on a whisker pole control line.

Squalls, calms, cloudy, lightning, sunny, light winds, high winds, rain, NE winds, E winds, SE winds. If we were better or more energetic sailors, we'd be making better headway, but on a two-handed boat we can only muster complete sail plan changes a couple times a day. We started noticing signs of fatique a couple of days ago and have been sleeping more. That means Tumbleweed is essentially single-handed most of the time. We have a rule that no one goes forward on deck while the other is sleeping - even though we're tethered. As a result of all this, sometimes Tumbleweed has the funniest sail configs, and sometimes we're sailing in the wrong direction. Our daily VMG-course has fallen and we haven't seen another 170 nm day. But we don't care...we're getting to see more of the Pacific Ocean.

We were struck with a bit of panic today when we realized how fast our passage that we have dreamed and talked about for so long was happening. Not to worry though, our lazy sailing habits and the coming doldrums will make it last. For instance, we are too slothful to reset the whisker pole, so instead we are gybing our way southwest. Shake that reef out? Nah, we'll just have to put it back soon. DOLPHINS: At 0200 this afternoon, we noticed about 20 boobies when the normal count is 2...and then we saw the dolphins. Hundreds of dolphins were swimming towards our boat, leaping four or five at a time in perfect synchronization. They performed aerial acrobatics that included double twists with back flips. Twenty or so would be riding our bow wave at a time. We could see them swimming towards us from hundreds of meters away. They swam with us for hours.

It was a classic chess-like example of how in just a couple of moves one can go from winning to losing. The yankee-cut genoa on the whisker pole was great at 20 kts in beautiful sunshine, but not-so-great at 24 kts in darkness...and building seas. The catch was that we could not convince ourselves that the risk of leaving it deployed has high enough to warrant the risks of taking it down...in 24 kts and darkness. So we were stuck fretting about it all night. (What saved us is the high clew on the yankee, which results in the end of the whisker pole being about 16 feet above the water.)<BR/><BR/>=== Boat Heading, Speed: 200T, 6.5 kts SOG<BR/>=== Wind Direction, Speed: 45T, 20 kts<BR/>=== Combined Seas Direction, Height: 45T, 2 m, calming<BR/>=== Pressure: 1022 mb<BR/>=== Weather Observations: Clear all day, some clouds at sundownover 1 year  agoShow

These actuals winds were somewhat consistent with yesterday's GFS forecast for where we are at. It's grand to have these NE winds, but they've built considerable frisky seas at 2 - 3 meters.

14º 39.666' N120º 2.172' WTumbleweedDAY 8: Lazy beautiful day. All we managed to do in our slothdom is jibe the whisker-poled genoa once...and read novels. Based on GFS weather models, we decided that we might find more winds west of us, instead of south, so we pushed our heading up to 240T, requiring a jibe. We'll have to make up for this westerly heading with a southerly one later...but we wanted to keep in the fresh breeze. The variable winds in the 10 kt range have reduced our daily run rate from the earlier 170 nm/day, so now we're considering the prospect of a 29+ day passage based on slow day estimates in the doldrums.<BR/>03/27/2017 0411 (utc)<BR/>=== Boat Heading, Speed: 236T, 6.5 kts SOG<BR/>=== Wind Direction, Speed: 25T, 10-18 kts<BR/>=== Combined Seas Direction, Height: 15T, 1+ m, building?<BR/>=== Pressure: 1022 mb<BR/>=== Weather Observations: Partly cloudy, overcastover 1 year  agoShow

This morning we struggled to realign with our planned track's heading, but the confused seas and shifting winds made it difficult.

The big seas remind us of stormy days off the coast of Washington & Oregon. To play it safe and make it easy to adjust to variable winds and seas, we've been sailing with just a double-reefed 110% genoa at about 135 degrees off T wind. We've been able maintain about a 6.3 kts speed-in-water. Since we left the coast of Baja, we have not seen another boat --- not even lights at night.

Even though we had both a double-reefed genoa and main when the 30's hit, we developed powerful weather helm that overwhelmed our Monitor windvane. We had a hell of a time dropping the main completely. Big swell is forecasted to arrive in this area later today, but we already have a good 3 meter swell (I'm not good at judging SWH, so I tend to be conservative with my estimates.)<BR/>03/23/2017 1803 (utc)<BR/>=== Boat Heading, Speed: 230T, 7.2 kts<BR/>=== Wind Direction, Speed: 30T, 25 kts<BR/>=== Combined Seas Direction, Height: 0T, 3+ m<BR/>=== Pressure: 1023 mb<BR/>=== Weather Observations: Partly cloudy.
