Sounds like you are right on track Sarah. Well done! You are nearly there. And I know that you will be sharpening all your mental resources for the final push. We are pushing with you and lending all our mental weight to see you home safely. Adak Ahoy!
Wonderful report. I am monitoring marinetraffic.com/ais to see if your signal is picked up by the receiving station at Akutan, Alaska. So far nothing….perhaps the strength of your signal etc. prevents it. As long as other traffic close by sees you…that’s all that counts. Glad to hear your batteries are charging again. Your journey tracker is helpful in matching Happy Sock’s position on the ais map.

Come on Sarah, you’re almost there! God bless you!!

Hope you have a nice smooth landing Sarah, finding your ‘land legs’ might be a bit tougher on other than a standard jetty! Pleased to know that within hours you will be safe again.
Anxiously putting computer on every day – keep going you are so nearly there. Love Averill
Sunshine, charging batteries and very nearly there – great news! Stay strong and keep safe – here’s wishing you a stress-free rest of journey……..
Hi Sarah, You’ve achieved a fantastic feat in the last few days of navigating (w/o a rudder) to be in exactly the position you need to be at to approach Adak I., Well done and congratulations.
I’m sure the folks at Adak, especially the children will give you a very warm welcome.
Fair winds and following seas, and a very save landing.
Graham, Kingston, ON

Oh so very nearly there now!! To think you may be within sight of land as I type this is exciting stuff indeed!! You and Happy Socks take good care of each other as you prepare to see each other ashore onto Adak Island! Cannot WAIT to read that it’s a done deal!!

How exciting for you and all of your followers! Stick the landing as they say in gymnastics! All the best, Sarah!
Go Sarah Go! You are almost there! Fantastic! Cheers, Steve
This is so exciting tht you are nearly there. I have been waking up at night throughout the summer thinking of you in the middle of the ocean and how awesome that is. Can’t wait to see photos when you land. You can do this last push. Yes you can!
Huge thanks to everyone for all your support and comments, it means a lot to Sarah and to her family to know that she has so many good wishes and so much suport out there. Nearly there now….about 13 miles to go. ………………..
Wow Sarah, so close! How exciting that must be. Hope the landing goes well and that those first steps aren’t too difficult!!
With you all the way…
