Andy & his lovely mate Kathy are being asked about by family members & friends back in the UK and it's been a while since he's emailed them, so I thought I'd ask those of you crossing the Pacific if you've heard from/seen them recently.
CHINOOK is a big partly-red steel cutter (~13-14m), big football pitch of solar panels back aft. They were in FP mid-winter (May-July or so) and having a ball. When we last were with Andy, he was thinking of heading for Oz after the year's crossing...but of course he could have chosen NZ instead. If you have any info please email me and I'll pass the news along.
