Remaining fuel on board: 370 gallons
24 hour fuel burn: 92 gallons
24 hour distance made good: 163
24 hour speed made good: 6.8
Remaining distance to destination: 186
Remaining range at present speed of 7 knots: 681

"NORDHAVN" continues our slog up the coast in "typical" Baja Bash conditions. We were slowed down to 5 knots at times last night. The seas were only about four feet (measured at sea level) but they were "square" waves with a short period not much longer than 40 feet. As we write this we are abeam of the infamous Sacramento Reef. As we get by Sacramento reef we are moving closer to shore trying to pick up a counter current, and it appears to be working. Our speed has moved from 6.5 to 7.3. "If" we can maintain this speed we will be pulling into San Diego (first time back in the continental U.S since November 3, 2001) to clear U.S. Customs.

As conditions permit it, we will throttle up for we have plenty of fuel. We should have some respect for who is paying for the fuel (Alaska Diesel and Electric) but we think they will forgive us this indulgence.
