Rain, rain

A long night of light rain.

As long as the wind is very light we are reasonably comfortable. The cockpit has a sun cover when we are in port and two of the hatches also have covers that permit them to stay open. When the wind comes up we have to batten down the inside of Reboot gets very humid and uncomfortable quite quickly.

I have started my research on taking Reboot to China. It is somewhat depressing. A round trip flight from the Philippines is about $425. To take Reboot in (as opposed to parking Reboot in the Philippines) looks like a minimum of $5,000 US. I am trying to get more current information. Very few boats have gone to China, mostly apparently as part of an international event. In the meantime I will continue to target reaching the Philippines in November when the cyclone risk moves from the Northern to Southern hemisphere.

Fair winds and following seas :)
