Finally zero time difference with Japan
May 16 weather fine

Updated on 2022/05/16 (Japan time)

It is a weak southeasterly wind.
The time difference with Japan has been eliminated. I've been confused by the time difference calculation so far, but it's easier.
It has been 50 days since the departure. Immediately after the departure, I was baptized by a storm, but after that, I was in great shape up to Minamitorishima. Can you go as it is? want to go. But the reality is harsh. After Minamitorishima, the brakes were suddenly applied. Reality is taken as reality.
It has become hot. She is sailing in short sleeves and shorts.
For future courses, I would like to pass between Hahajima and North Iwo Jima in Ogasawara and aim for the offshore of Cape Muroto. What kind of route will you take during this time? There are innumerable answers depending on the weather conditions and the flow of the Kuroshio Current. I would like to decide by North Iwo Jima.

It looks like he'll be in a easterly (NE) on Thursday that will persist all the across way to waypoint #2.

Swung around
May 19 weather fine

Updated on 2022/05/19 (Japan time)

In the weather forecast, I was told to be careful about sudden changes in the wind and unstable weather.
Around 1 am, a squall came. Although the waves were relatively small, the wind direction was not stable from north, south, east and west, and was swung until around 3 am.
The staff comforted me, "The tracking system shows the situation," but the site was difficult.

* All dates in the logbook text are local time.

Every day I check his position when I get up in the morning and again in the evening. I find some small measure of joy and comfort in his progress likely because it shows that even at 40+ there can still be adventures in front of me. 

I remember reading about his youthful adventure while sitting in the ICU for a couple of weeks with my wife after her horseback riding accident so there’s some special meaning for me i can’t quite quantify.
 

Go Horie-San!

Too calm
May 20 Weather: Sunny and sometimes cloudy

Updated on 2022/05/20 (Japan time)

It's hard to reach the sea near North Iwo Jima. The pace has dropped considerably. Even in the past voyages, when I came to the sea near Japan, the trade winds were cut off and the voyage continued to be difficult. Not only is the wind weak this time, but it is also a headwind even if it blows. The waves are less than 1m and Osaka Bay class. It's too calm. Blow more, wind.

Sometimes back
May 23, sunny weather

Updated on 2022/05/23 (Japan time)

It was a cloud all over until the morning, but as of 10 o'clock, it has cleared up. It was hard last night with a lot of big squalls. The yacht is backed up whether it goes to the right or to the left. I tried my best without sleeping, but it didn't work. When you go back, you go back. It is unavoidable.
In the morning, the weather improved a little and I started to move forward. We are currently sailing with North Iwo Jima on your left. I want you to run smoothly.

Is it rough tonight?
May 25, weather cloudy

Updated on 2022/05/25 (Japan time)

It was a relatively good wind yesterday daytime. But it doesn't last long. The night was rough again. Even now (10 o'clock) it is covered with black clouds. It seems to imply that it will be rough tonight as well. It may be pushed north, but it can't be helped.
The amount of power generated by solar cells is small, and we strive to save electricity.

May 27, weather cloudy

2022/05/27 update (Japan time)

I ran well yesterday for the first time in a long time. The wind is bad today and I can't move toward my goal. It is in a state where the sail is made small and flowing. This is the only way.
The target passing points are 30 degrees north latitude and 135 degrees east longitude. It is 320km behind, but it is in a stalemate. From there, the goal line (the line connecting the Hino Misaki Lighthouse in Wakayama Prefecture and the Ishima Lighthouse in Tokushima Prefecture, the same as the previous Wave Power Boat) is 400 km. If you run normally, it will take about 4 days.

* All dates in the text of the voyage diary are local time.

Kenichi Horie is due south of his goal, either 304 NM according to my PHP script or 253 NM according to his tracker.  Still heading west.  Several recent attempts to head north have failed (due to adverse current?).  His hourly tracker.  No "diary"/log update.

Ascend to the north as much as possible
May 31st Weather: Lightly cloudy

2022/05/31 update (Japan time)

I finally arrived at the scheduled 134 degree east longitude line. I turned my course to the north.
If the weather is nice, you can see the North Pole beyond the Kuroshio. I will go up to the fullest. You should see the goal beyond that.

Pay close attention to the south-downstream of Kuroshio
June 1st Weather: Sunny and sometimes cloudy

2022/06/01 update (Japan time)

The battery has recovered a little yesterday and today. If you can charge it a little more, you will not have to worry about power.
It should be crossing the Kuroshio on the sea map, but it is better than I expected. However, it is a voyage with caution so as not to get caught in the south-downstream that is occurring in the Kuroshio meandering.

June 2 weather fine

2022/06/02 update (Japan time)

As of 10 o'clock, it seems that the Kuroshio has not passed.
From yesterday, it has been a wind from the north. It's unlikely to change.
It looks like it will be fine today and tomorrow for the first time in a long time. It is expected that the wind will change to the south in the afternoon, but it is weak.
Chest thrust eight chome. I will do my best to climb north as much as possible.

June 3 weather fine

2022/06/03 update (Japan time)

The three-day fight against Kuroshio was settled within last night. However, I fell asleep a little because I was exhausted and I felt relieved that the yacht was heading in the direction I was thinking.
You can cross the goal line in a little while. I will do my best without being relaxed.

Looks like another 70 miles or so for him to reach port 

Hopefully there will be some arrival pictures coming
