Another significant waypoint in one of the craziest maritime adventures of all time!
As of yesterday 300 days have passed since Schooner Anne left New York City for her 1000 days at sea without making landfall. 100 day increments make for a nice round number so I’ll try to remember to catch them here along with a brief update.
Yesterday Reid and Soanya woke up to a shredded main sail and they report that their spare is buried deep in the cargo hold under several tons of provisions. I’ve been reluctant to be too critical of this expedition; however, how could they stow the most critical sail, and one that is probably destined for the earliest demise, like this? It’ll be interesting to read how they deal with this challenge. They have proven to be pretty adaptive up to this point.
In any case, I continue to wish them well and will continue to follow their adventures via their blog.
