Return Day 3 - Night

Good evening race fans.

I'm on the night watch with Scrappy Cappy. we have approximately 150nm to the entrance to Narragansett bay. It is a calm and peaceful night on the bay. There are a couple of race fleet vessels on the AIS, likely heading to similar ports of call as us in New England. s/v Fearless is off to our starboard and s/v Momentum is off of our stern.

Given Mahina Kai means moon over sea, i suppose it is fitting that we enjoy a ull moon behind us as we motor sail towards our destination. It is hard for me to imagine this is the same day, when I was sailing through a cold front earlier today. The Atlantic ocean clearly has many different personalities.

If all things continue as planned, I would expect us to reach Newport sometime Thursday evening.

Fair winds,
The Crew of s/v Mahina Kai

  1. Just checked you on YB. Think you may arrive sometime Wednesday evening. You're showing 80 miles out. Glad you had a nice ride home. The ground crew is still enjoying the buzz of all the fun we had sharing your experience.
