2000 miles to Hawaii


By April 17, Barrabas was back in the Northern Hemisphere and 2000 miles from Hawaii. Adrian had decided to accept a supply drop, the decision aided by continuing difficulties in obtaining Russian permission to sail their Northern Sea Route whihc meant that he would also need charts for Canadian waters to provide the option of attempting the North West Passage past Alaska and Canada if the Russians refused permission. The Waikiki Yacht Club had offered to send out a motor yacht and 25 ft RIB to meet Barrabas off Hawaii to transfer charts, spares and supplies. Weather conditions were good and the forecasts encouraging.
