Final night at sea

Tonight will be the final night of our Pacific ocean crossing. We’ve covered 7,000 nautical miles in the past seven months since we left Mexico, and now there’s only 130 to go. 130!! It seems ridiculous. We’ve spent 47 nights at sea, and tonight will be the last one (on this trip 😉 ). The thought of our landfall tomorrow is incredibly exciting and still hard for us to wrap our heads around. Our adventure will continue in as we hop down the coast to Sydney Harbour, but the ‘ocean voyaging’ is coming to an end.

We are happy, we can’t wait to explore Australia, and we are amazed that we’ve almost accomplished this crazy goal that has been many years in the making.

There will be tears and champagne tomorrow for sure!

    Do you mean this is that last blog from Hydroquest at sea? That is very sad.Yes, what an achievement! Such an adventure! So lucky to have done it – and I know it is a lot more than luck – lotsa work. So sad it is over ….. well not completely ….do look forward to having you both with more time to get back on your keyboards doing Hydrovane’s bidding.
