Visitors

The sailboat came in. Their mast is only about 4o feet instead of 81 feet tall. We got tour of the boat. It's pretty small for going around the world. They started their round the world race in Liverpool in September and race separate legs around the world. It ends up taking them about a year to go all the way around the world. They've got a website and do a blog.

We had a little party for them at the All Hands Club last night. They are supposed to leave after lunch on Sunday. It'll take about 8 days for them to get to Honolulu.

The weather wasn't so good for them. It was really windy and cloudy all day. They were still glad to get here and at least have a day to walk around and have hot showers.

Just one of the perils of Ocean sailing. I had my share of adventures in my younger and foolish days. :)

Just a little party, eh?

I'd like the trip if it was sunny and calm waters all the way, but at the first sign of rough weather, I'd want to go home!
