Day 15: Now, that's more like it!

Moondance stats:
LATITUDE: 16-45.60N; LONGITUDE: 153-29.33W
COURSE: 302T; SPEED: 6.7
24 HOUR RUN: 131m

The wind and seas calmed down last night - just in time for us to get a good nights sleep! We are still seeing 30 knot winds once in awhile and will get a strange series of waves, but nothing we can't handle, plus we are making good time.

One little whine - it is colder here than we are used to. You should see us all bundled up in the cockpit for night watches. I think I had 4 layers on last night. Plus, we miss that sunshine. What whimps we are! We hear of snow storms hitting the states all ready and just get a shiver. Hope you are all staying warm and dry!

We are really getting excited about making landfall! We should start seeing land tomorrow (if the weather cooperates) and should be at the Honokohau marina in Kona early morning on Wednesday. It is all coming together - almost like we planned it. Just hope the marina has a slip for us. Details, details...

The crew is definitely ready to get off the boat and stretch our legs. We are thinking of hitchhiking or walking to town (Kailua-Kona) to check it out and do some shopping - only 3 - 4 miles away (we think). Anything that doesn't involve a rock'n roll'n boat!

Hawaii - here we come!
