Dear Shadowside followers,
Its been a great week in HI, spent getting the Shadowside ready to sail and catching up on sleep.
The members of the Racing Crew have gone on their way and the Return Crew have joined the Ship's Company. I am pleased to welcome Michelle, Molly, Lee and Don aboard.
Yesterday, Wednesday, August 3 we departed for the Mainland. Next stop Port Townsend Washington. This will be a 3000 Nautical mile voyage. We will sail north for about 1000 nautical miles and then turn for Cape Flattery. The wild card is the Pacific High. If good fortune smiles upon us, the High will move east and we will be able to sail around the back side of it. If good fortune frowns upon us, It will stay in its current position and we will have to motor through it.
