Hi to all with loved ones and friends aboard J/World.
As of this morning, they were at:
28 28’N 153 17’W with 9-12 kts of wind from 090* and all is well, as of 0900 PDT Friday.
This was relayed from my friends Mike, Ted and Tom aboard Hulua, returning to Southern California. They are at: 34 10’ N 138 50’W.
They reported that they spoke with Eugenie this morning via the SSB radio (Single Sideband high frequency radio)
“we had weak connection, but the gal on J World was asking if we were “posting” positions anywhere, I said I’d fwd to you that JWorld was at 28*28’N 153*17’W with 9-12 kts of wind from 090* and all is well, as of 0900 PDT Friday. ”
Also from Mike on Holua” “There is no formal network or schedule for the returning boats and we all have different data capabilities, so we try to share info and keep a loose log of daily reports for each other. As “lead dog” out of Waikiki, HOLUA has been the contact/list keeper. Now that we are charging east it is harder and harder to hear the boats just getting started. If someone were to find themselves in trouble we could figure out who, if anyone, was close enough to render assistance.?”
Euge sent a direct email from the boat… I’ll post that soon.
Barry and the J/World Crew
