I think we heard our first Alaskan voice this morning - there are regular wx broadcasts on 4125 mhz - extreme range for us but there was definitely someone there - wooohooo!

Still just in range of Hawaii sailmail station, then, perhaps Friday Harbour in Washington (sailmail HQ - hi guys!) and then it will be iridium all the way.

Hot, sweaty, nasty joggly sea, very big swell from NW - motoring to keep up speed through sea. V unpleasant - and seems our little fan may have died - very unpleasant...
