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.

A Little Slow

Position N  23 d 01.23
        W 066 d 12.97
Time 09:00

Well we slowed down.  Just before midnight we even turned on the engines and began motorsailing.  And that is basically what we are still doing.  Trying to take advantage of each of the mini systems that might help us point more back at our rum line.  So when we get in is anybody's guess but it is looking like late Tuesday or early Wednesday at present, unless those trades kick in from an optimal direction and our speeds pick back up we will just have to keep slogging on.
