It’s official, Idefix and I are signed up for the 2012 Singlehanded Transpac. The memories from 2010 are still fresh in my mind, the call of the ocean is hard to resist, and we have three race trophies to defend!

This edition will come with all sorts of new challenges, notably sailing down the rugged northwest coast to the start, and following up the race with a voyage through the South Pacific to Australia. If I can complete this voyage, Idefix will perhaps have sailed more miles than any other Olson 30!

Things will be more exciting for folks on shore too… not only will there be new and interesting destinations, but I am tweaking the HF radio installation to get email on the boat! Stay tuned!
