Have been taking some comfort by proxy from the voyages of others recently. One is making good progress across the eastern Pacific and has almost reached Hilo. The other has just landed in Dale on the Welsh coast, having made a three day passage on a Wayfarer around the Cornish coast. The next leg of their journey takes them out into the Irish Sea.
