One step forward, two steps back

Well, if you’re following the tracker, you’ll know that Mo and Randall left for San Francisco yesterday. And very quickly turned around and came back. What’s the problem? Well the AIS antenna (tested before he left) apparently is not doing what it’s supposed to do. Sailing 9000 something miles back to San Francisco with no radar to see what’s out there just seems like a bad idea. Team Figure 8 thinks that maybe the mast (probably actually) went for a swim during the various knockdowns and the atenna is just busted. So back to the store (thanks Darryl) it is. Quick repair and we hope to be back out again in a day or two. Keep your fingers crossed on the weather.

Quick reminder for anyone in the Bay Area this weekend. Best wife in the world, Joanna, will be at the West Coast Boat Show on Sunday. She’ll be speaking in the Venue Space from 10.30-11.30am More information and to get tickets click here.


Thanks! Team F8

  1. Loved Joanna’s presentation at the show! Afterwards my wife told me that Randall should also consider writing some tips on sweet things to do for the spouse. It seems he does better from 20,000 mi led away then I often do from tight here.

    Wishing you a safe and speedy return, Randall.
