Around The World Voyage : Commentary

December 22, 2001 (local)

Hi Everybody,

We've been underway for just about 28 hours. We are still in the process of getting our sea legs back into condition. It seems funny that just after 6 or 7 days in port we should have a need to get acclimated to the sea once again. Because of this, I'm going to have to cut it a bit short today.

Each one of us is fending for themselves in the food department, mostly snacks and instant noodle cups. Anything with salt in it seems to make you feel better.

P.A.E. is having their annual Christmas party today. We wish them all a Merry Christmas and sure wish we could be there celebrating with them. Don't have too much fun (we know they will).

All the stat's, are as follows,

Date is 12/22/2001 on Saturday. The time is 1:46pm local and 0146uct. Our position is N 05*57' / E 161*09'. Our speed is 6.2knts at 1700rpm. our course is 276m toward our landfall (Pohnpei) which is 183nm. The Barometer is 1007mb and falling. The wind is off our starboard quarter at 8knts.The air temp. is 90.5 and blue sky's with thunderheads around. The sea's are confused and 7ft.

Best wishes and love to all our friends and family,

Ray, Dave, and Tom
