I suspect at the rate he is sailing, it will be at least a total of 40-50 days just to get to Hawaii. Then at least 50-60 to get to Samoa. It is a long way and a long time. I predict he will land in Hawaii again. Does anyone know the condition of the bottom paint and the fouling?
He's trying to get to Samoa after Hawaii? That's 2,300 reaching miles and the equator and not an easy passage. Based on past speeds, inability to sail to windward(?) and the fact that he'll be arriving in the South Pacific during cyclone season unless he waits until next year, I don't think he'll make Samoa. He'd likely get blown somewhere else or worse. I hope he carries a lot of charts of the south pacific... I'll hand it to Rimas, he has me riveted (now that I actually have internet access), but for all the wrong reasons. i hope he is safe out there.
