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.

Getting Excited

Position 25 d 10 m N 128 d 50 E We are about 100 hundred miles away so we should be in Okinawa just before lunch time.  Just called Okinawa Coast Guard with expected eta.  Bit of a drama there as they didn't seem to have our paperwork.  but we did fax to them twice before departure so I am sure they will find it before tomorrow.  Anyway our first sat phone call where we actually spoke to someone was quite long!!! When you are counting the fact it is 2 dollars a minute you think of all the beer you now have to sacrifice to pay for the call!

Anyway our next post should be from shore.

Cheers
11:30 Japan Time
