I've arrived safely and am at anchor in Radio Bay, Hilo, Hawaii. Its overcast here, the clouds started gathering around the island 8 miles out and I finally shouted 'land ho!' when I saw a tiny speck of trees and shore when I was 13 miles away. I still really haven't seen the island, the clouds are very low and all I can see is a the lower shore area. When I sailed to within 3 miles of the Hilo Bay breakwater, the wind started being very variable, in speed and direction. Rather than fighting for the last 3 miles, at 1pm I lowered sail and motored into the bay from there.
I have some things to do here to get the boat in order, but thought I would pass along this news. I'll send more soon.
Yippee! Yay me!
