Up anchor at 0700 under calm conditions. Set a full jib and mizzen – good boat speed in 15-20 kts of wind across the channel between Molokai and Oahu. Timed it right again. Nice 35-mile passage – fun sail. Passed Diamond Head to starboard at 1300 and took arrival at the Ala Wai marina at 1315. Berthed at the plush Hawaii Yacht Club, but will be moving to the low rent district perhaps by tomorrow. We’re looking forward to exploring Honolulu and other digs in Oahu. We plan on being here until the end of September. While we’re here, we will haul SD at one of the boat yards to paint her bottom and check her systems. Then we’re off to… (stay tuned).
