Are we there yet?

So, the Sea Dragon is slowly slowly making it’s way eastward. Speaking to Tracey very briefly by sat phone two days ago, apparently it is very unusual for there to be so little wind in this region at this time of year.

They are cruising at a speed between 4 and 5 knots, and with at least 300 nautical miles still to go, they a unlikely to arrive in Maui until this Saturday morning.

The last posting from the crew (just reposted below) indicates they are running low on fresh food, the water desalination machine is faulty but the boat has finally dried out. It sounds like a very rough crossing.

Will post more as soon as I have it. Hopefully pics of a smiling girl arriving in port 🙂
