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.

Sailing Again

Position N  30 d 12.00
        W 065 d 24.22

Time 11:30 EST  course 220 degrees True

Well, during the posting yesterday the weather was abating from being slightly uncomfortable which was also exaggerated by the fact we were trying to point as high as we could due to Bermuda.  Anyway the winds kept receding all day and just after 5 PM we turned on the engines.  This wasn't all that unwelcome as we didn't run them for 4 days and we were getting tired of warm drinks, and now that we are in reasonable temperatures again it is nice to have a cold drink every now and then.  The winds continued to die all night, just after midnight you could see the reflections on the sea.  As the sun rose this morning there were ripples in the water, this time with a bit more east in its feel.  They have kept building, and by 10:35 we were able to turn the engines off.  The wind is still building and our present speed is back up to over 4 knots.  The big plus is we can head more south, though a bit west of south right now but that is ok.
