Our longest passage to date was our Tofino to San Francisco run which took 6 days and 5 hours. Yesterday around sunset was 6 days and 5 hours into this passage, after which we officially crossed the line into our longest passage ever. We joked that we would also get to celebrate 2x our longest (12 days) and 3x (18 days) but hopefully not our 4x (24 days). We decided to recreate our SF arrival at the Sausalito YC and we took a special beer* given to us by Tom & Jeanne on Eagle to the foredeck and sat in the sun savoring it.
While on the Pacific Seafarer Net, another boat (Stardust) celebrated their circumnavigation which they completed over 21 years. We chatted off frequency with them and gave them our heartfelt congratulations. Someday?
The wind has come up and we are flying. The weather has been picture perfect every day since we left. We've had whales, dolphins, flying fish, and, of course, boobies. To top it off, today we caught our first fish of the passage - a small but big enough to keep dorado which we will eat tomorrow. And we are most of the way through a pan of tasty brownies. A very good day.
