About Me

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.

Weather

Position 18 d 20.4 N 138 d 19.75 E Well it had to happen!  Those of you watching weather you see that system building just to the south west of us.  We had been checking this out with all the long range models we had available to us and they predicted almost what is happening.  In hind sight we should have stayed a bit more north instead of trying to close our rhumb line,but that is always 20:20.  Anyways we are missing the storm but getting crapped on by the feeder winds and seas.  They actually aren't bad, except we have/want to beam reach across them rather than broad reach with them.  Makes the ride a bit more uncomfortable but it puts us across the winds faster and closer to our destination rather than closer to the storm.  So we will be uncomfortable for about another day or so but hopefully good weather after that.  We are still making good progress.
