Now that the race committee has successfully recovered our first sailor we are feeling pretty darned successful. Commodore Dave thought he had the whole committee boat deal nailed down, but then when the boat showed up the engine wouldn’t start. So we called SSS stalwart and premier bug collector Rob Macfarlane, anchored in Hanalei Bay on Tiger Beetle.
“Hey, Rob? Can you help us recover a sleep deprived sailor?”
“Sure!” said Rob. So he revved up his own dinghy, collected Synthia and they went to recover PJ this morning at 4am. PJ was in great condition until he took a nap. That seemed to knock him out, and now he wants to go back out to his boat. (“She was so good to me!”) Who can figure?
Here’s a little video of the Sea Squirrel re-imagined: that is, after Larry did some magic to get her running for us. David and Synthia are going to bring her ’round Princeville for sure this time.
