covered 280NM in the last 24 hours, escaped this storm, just reached our 50% fuel consumed (1400 gallons for 2300 NM) but that?s not enough left to make it safely to SITKA (2300 NM) if we have to dodge another storm. HONOLULU, here we come to refuel, perhaps to stay the season!

Tropical storm MALISKI too wide and powerful to avoid, re-routing to Hawaii. Safety first.

Goodness, who invited Maliski along for the ride? Glad to hear you are re-routing, but now you’ll have to watch for volcanoes! xx

running away from this massive low to the NW of us, squashed between the storm?s intended path and the northern limit of Midway National Reserve. May have to make a run for Hawaii! Staying low and slow till next weather report.

big storm brewing NW of us, no way to go through it. Re-routed for safety, slowed down for economy, waiting out the storm riding on the 31st parallel. Running on 1 engine, 900 rpm, 1.8 gah, 7.6 Kts. Why hurry?

DOMINO - Hello Minerva.

Arrived South Minerva Reef under cloudy skies and showers, a good excuse to fish outside the reef while waiting for sunny weather... And a good idea too, since we soon got a double hook-up of yellowfin tuna! By 0830, there was a break in the clouds and enough light to go through. We took the northern channel of the pass, reef very visible on starboard, at low tide (using Raoul Island tide table) and headed straight across the lagoon to the anchorage. Note that the light on the rock at the western Read more...

end does not exist, but there is a new beacon on the east end of the reef, about 6 meter tall, flashing 1"on, 3" off. Biggest crayfish ever!!!! Life's good!

DOMINO - The Waiting Game

Hello Fellow YIT'ers... we're new on this forum, yet we can see that many of our friends are already logged onto this group. DOMINO is now in the Bay of Island, waiting for a weather window for Fiji where we will join Sea Mercy's efforts to rebuild the Northern Laus villages. JP&dominomarie

I'm Donna Robinson's mother. I'll be enjoying your blog to keep up with Donna and Jonathan. They said you are traveling with them. I'm following you all on YIT. It helps to know where they are when no communication is possible. Thank you for taking the time to keep a blog. God be with you all on your journey! Lynne
