First Mate's Journal
The personal journals of Lealea's First Mate.  Lessons learned and reflections on life aboard a 27' cruising sailboat during her voyages.
Our first long voyage in Lealea.  In 2007 we sailed from Honolulu to Neah Bay, WA.  It took us 55 days due to some unforseen circumstances but we learned a lot on this trip and it was all good.

In 2012 Lealea continued across the Pacific
