Crossed the Equator!

We are now officially "Shellbacks" as we crossed the Equator yesterday at 15:46 UTC.
A celebration, toast and a ceremony with offerings to King Neptune to insure our safe passage was performed.
Free Spirit is now in the trade winds traveling at a nice clip 7 knots plus on a rhumb line(beeline) 875 nautical miles from Hiva Oa.
Everything is still working well and the crew is still able to laugh at things.


  1. Congratulations on your first crossing. So glad King Neptune is smiling upon you and your voyage and everything is still copacetic. Brad

  2. I got goosebumps reading your post. SOOOO happy for you! And as we know...ALL the gods are smiling on you!! I had my first dinner party here in Santa Fe with 8 people. Very fun. Wish you all were here!!!
