Welcome...

Well everyone. It's something I swore I'd never get around to, but here goes...

To start I might just give everyone a quick update on what's been going on since the new year kicked off. It's been a relatively action packed start to the year.

New Year was celebrated in a somewhat sedate and mature fashion with some bubbly with friends and an early rise to see the sunrise in Kamogawa on a magnificent day with blue skies and only a slight chill in the air.

This was followed by the seeing off of Kanpei-san, a well known Tv celeb from Osaka who had recently embarked on an earth marathon, running from Osaka to Kamogawa where he set sail for LA.

Hi James, Now that is a sunrise! Great blog site.

Him leaving on his yacht reminded me of your adventures when you sailed to Fiji many years ago.

June 1981 - when you were nearly 6. Four of us sailed to Fiji and two of us took it on to New Hebrides and then New Caledonia and home to Paihia. But I guess Kanpei-san was doing it solo?

No, he was accompanied by a highly skilled sailor (that did most of the leg work I'd imagine).
