Climbing Liquid Everest

Sailing 21' boats, single handed from LA to Hawaii for the 650 Mini Pacific Challenge. This is not for the faint hearted. On most days, as soon as you clear the breakwater of the marina, if you are in a smaller boat, you start falling into every hole in the ocean.
  • July 7 - You can see the drift when the wind died down. They are further along today. One boat turned back (small triangle on map).
  • July 7 Evening - Race favorite Sammarcelli is coming back to the marina. Daisy Cutter is currently the only boat out in the ocean.
  • July 18 - Getting close to Hawaii.
  • July 21 - Almost there..
  • Sean McGinn sailed Daisy Cutter, his TransAt 6.50 from California to Hawaii in 17 days. Congratulations!
