2008-Mar-11 Noon Position

Indian Ocean

  • 99 nm last 24 hrs
  • 523 nm to Salalah, Oman
  • 731 nm from Uligamu, Maldives
  • Winds N 5-10 knots
  • Seas N 1-2 feet
Guess What? Light winds. That's what.

The ride is nice as Sandpiper is barely rolling about. But its making this trip longer than we had planned. We are hoping to get to Oman by Sunday if all goes well. The only drama in the last 24 hours was disc 4 of Prison Break will not work, and we do not know what Michel Scofield is up to.

No traffic, and no contact with S/V Shiraz because of poor propagation. It is getting a bit chilly at night the farther north we get after sweating it out near the equator. Thanks for the great blanket Shannon!!

We are expecting to loose Sailmail soon since we are very far from the transmitting stations. So if there are no Team Sandpiper updates for a few days, then we will update after our arrival in Oman after the weekend.

Still trying to catch a fish, but no luck today.

More in 24 (hopefully),
Tom and Amy
