Sharry’s Thoughts: My Last Night Watch of this Passage  November 12, 2016 2100-2400   Supermoon I’m sitting on the step on the port side of the wheelhouse, both wheelhouse doors are open and the warm night air at 78 degrees is cooler than the temperature of the sea at 82.5 degrees.  I am barefoot, dressed in shorts and a tank top, and the warm night air wraps my body in a soft caress.  The “super” moon is a slightly squashed circle of light, not quite full but probably will be by tomorrow...

Last Landfall November 13, 2016 – Approaching Diamond Head-10nm ahead Day 18   Lee Hillman Brown Starr is one hour from Honolulu after an eighteen-day passage from Seattle.  For me and Lee this will complete our last voyage together.  For me it has been a trip of intimate memories: of other passages, of night watches, of the night sky and “our” constellation, Casseopia, and of just the two of us sailing Wings together, watch on and watch off – partners, intimate.  Now we are coming to ou...

Sea Hunt November 12, 2016 –Almost to Honolulu Day 17   Duke’s Mahi If truth be told, I am not a killer. Maybe my parents taught me to respect living things, she a microbiologist and nurse, he a pediatrician. A little fishing with Dad as a boy was done but there was no hunting or guns. Compared to me, Brownie is a trained killer, a crack shot and a harvester of the wild and the deep and there is probably no better descriptor of Don than 'equipped.' He's got everything. Tools, large and small, ...

Cassiopeia and Time and Shame November 5-6, 2016 - In the Great Pacific Ocean Days 10 and 11   Sunset November 6 Brownie’s Post – Early Morning of November 5 Cassiopeia As we make our way on a vector from 31 to 21 North and 129 to 158 West, on the midnight watch you can lean out either of the wheelhouse doors and see the brilliant stars free from obscuring pollution. To port is Orion’s Belt and to starboard, Cassiopeia. In my life with Lee, Cassiopeia was our constellation. Five bright star...

Fish On, Sneaking Out the Window and Reefer Madness November 4, 2016 – In the Great Pacific Ocean Day 9   Concordia Moon, night of November 3 Doug’s (D2A) Post (Don’s Catch) Fish On! As the sea temperature has risen above 70 degrees, the sea hunters have stirred to battle. It is an unfair fight with Don and Brownie marshaling their considerable collective fisherman experience in the quest for dorado and tuna.  In terms of armament, few vessels are as well equipped as Starr.  Proper pol...
