Another update from the ocean

Sarah has been at sea for over two weeks now and has travelled 522 nautical miles during this time. She did appear to be moving backwards for a short while but is now back on track. A message from Sarah today read:

My first backwards run now over, this is day of the waves! Surfing all day. Rainstorms. 522nm on the log!

    without a bit of backward motion, one never really fully appreciates the forward progress….especially if a bit of surfing is on the cards. Well done Sarah and hup hup from all the SISTERS. Susie

    Dear Sarah, I’ve been following your progress from my home here in Northern California since the first try. I’m a surfer so had to email you on your surf day, how big is the swell your on? Also being a Christian, I read in one of your stories that you are not, but what a better place to incounter God than riding a big wave in the middle of the ocean, or some new moon night with a billion stars winking down on you! Keep up the good work, a fan from the north woods of California.

    Ride those waves till you hit the beach!Must be a dam site easier than rowing! Keep on steering though! And the rainstorms…Must be so refreshing!

    Sarah says please relay her best wishes to him.Say “hello” and that she is thinking of him. She also says “GO SPIRIT OF ROCKINGHAM, GO”.

    Hi Sarah,it is great to see that you are moving ahead again. Hope the wind and the swell are good to you, so you can relax a little, you have worked and achieved so much!!!! Keep it up….
    On Sunday, Gerard and I will be going to Geraldton to see Andy and Guy off, hope you will be able to keep in touch with them.

  15. Hi! Congrat.s on the 522 nm, but it took me a (nano)sec to realise that it was nautical miles; to us it suggests nanometers. I envy you the albies; your sojourn in Perth was truly educational. Ilove the updates. Many thanks, Hazel.

    Sarah, do you have a dagger board on your boat?

  17. Jeremy Christey says:

    just wondered if you’re getting blown sideways much with the windage [?]

    Keep on – great job.
