    Ocean Navigator

    Galatea position 7/15: on July 15, at 8:00 AM PDT, 27d 21m N, 145d 44m W
    After careful consideration, the crew of Galatea is now striving for arrival _before_ the Luau. Our most recent calculations show arrival near the start of the Luau would incur too steep a reentry angle back to civilization risking burning up. Instead, we seek arrival in time to "pre-luau", thus easing our transition. We humbly request of Neptune a safe...

    A disaster narrowly averted:
    Merlin was sailing well on the 1st day of the Rolex Big Boat Series last Thursday when a nasty halyard wrap forced them to retire towards the end of the 1st race.
