About Me

My photo
Singapore
I am owned by Pauline and Mark Blasky. My hull was built at the Duncan Marine Yard in Taiwan and launched in Dec of 1980. It is a William Garden design based on the Pixie Design and called by Duncan Marine a Freedom 45. They are the fourth owners and have owned me the longest. They have done extensive refitting to me including replacing my entire deck structure and rig. My masts are roughly 10% taller than original and now are made of aluminium as opposed to the original wood ones, which, though pretty, were always problematic.

Day Three

Postion 17 d 04.5 m N 140 d 24.7 m E  The wind is back!  Not too strong and from the right direction.  Sari Timur is loving this and we are making progress toward Okinawa and our rhumb line.  We had been several miles north of our rhumb line as we didn't want to sail straight downwind the first couple of days.  We prefer broad reaching.  For those of you who do not know the rhunb line is the straight line on the chart between two points on a flat map.  our rhumb line is really a great circle line which is the shortest point between two points on a sphere.  The difference between these two lines in this case is 5.1 nautical miles and only deviates the course by a total of a couple degrees over four steps.  Pauline redid some macrame basket hangers yesterday. The original string chaffed threw after about ten years and all the contents went flying.  We are using better string this time.  So hopefully 20 years!  Anyway all is well on board.

Cheers
