Cruising

Hello from Down Under!

On July 1, June 30 in the U.S., Webb Chiles will continue his sixth circumnavigation, sailing from Darwin, Australia for South Africa on GANNET, his ultralight Moore 24, a masterpiece of yacht design and construction.  This is a passage of 100° of longitude, from 131°E to 31°E and about 6,000 miles.  For a Moore 24 that is a stretch.

Chiles will carry thirty gallons of water rather than his usual twenty and provisions for more than sixty days, though he expects that if all goes well the passage will take forty to fifty days.  He will eat and drink GANNET back into trim.

Even in winter Darwin is hot. 100° is also often the temperature in GANNET’s Great Cabin.
