off the coast




Webb did not make it in yesterday.  His most recent Yellowbrick track shows he approached the coast then turned back, most likely waiting on daylight to come into port.

What a fantastic voyage. Really looking forward to his report. A titan among mariners.

Webb got pipped to the post by a front coming through. Another 12 hours and he would have made it in. Its blowing like hell out there with 6m waves forecast but by mid afternoon Tuesday it should be calm again. None the less, a remarkable journey in a 24 foot boat.

The last 24 hours his track has been quite odd. there must be something special going on that is keeping him off the coast and going slow. Given his desire to minimize communications at sea, I do want to share that I have quite enjoyed following his track.

It was interesting watching his track and seeing the predicted winds develop and then watch him run off before the small gale while heading out to get some sea room. Now he is able to turn back, it looked like the worst weather he encountered on the trip. He is truly amazing to follow.
