my hat is off to Graham

Congratulations to Graham for an incredible Delmarva circumnavigation in CARLITA, his Core Sound 17 Mk 3.  He is not done yet, he still has an estimated four or five day sail back to his home in North Carolina.  I caught up with Graham this morning as he anchored for a break at Hospital Point on the Elizabeth River. 

He did the inside route on the seaside of the Eastern Shore, using little creeks to get past obstacles and, at one point, sawing a tree that had fallen across a canal.

SPOT limits the data on their tracking pages to 500 points so I can't show the entire route.  But below are 500 points that show a good portion of the journey.

I think this is day 32 for his trip, so he should be home by about day 35 or so, well before the two months he had estimated early in his trip.  Well done, Graham.
