About Me

My photo
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.

What a Difference a Day Makes

Position 22 d 41.0m N 131 d 24.0 m E.  Wow today we have probably the nicest conditions of the trip so far.  Yesterday we were complaining about everything until I got on the radio sched with Brad and found out he had to hove to for two days while the storm passed over him.  They lost their transmission and are heading into Osaka to get a new one or this one fixed.  But they are several days late already and still have over 400 miles to go.  The low has passed us over and we have a little slop left but mostly smooth seas.   but Sari Timur is showing us her graces again.  We have all four sails drawing wind again.  Pretty heavily reefed, we are a bit gun shy right now.  But all is good.
