I have created this blog with the hopes that you, my friend, will follow me as I sail around the world (figuratively or literally, not sure yet) with my parents on their Contest 48. Whereas I hope to keep you updated with exciting adventures of exotic ports and epic waves, keep in mind that cruising - that is, traveling by boat in a leisurely fashion - tends to be filled with days of intense boredom, punctuated by moments of sheer terror. Please keep this in mind as you read these entries, for this platform will be just as much an attempt for me to maintain my sanity (and connection to the California-based world), as entertainment and reassurance for you. And so, follow me as I sail the world.

Day 2

The sun just set in rather spectacular fashion on day two of the passage through the Banda Sea en route to Wakatobi. The wind has held steady at around 15 knots for the past 36 hours and the seas have kindly stayed below a meter. It has been so pleasant that Kyle has not even spewed once! In fact, he is even eating and, dare I say, enjoying himself this passage.

We have about 150 miles to get to our waypoint at Wangi Wangi island, which we hope to reach before sundown tomorrow. While this is an easy passage, none of us want to stay out here any longer than necessary. And so, all is swell on board.

Next time from Wakatobi.
