Belated post about our finish

As followers of the Pac Cup will have realized long since, we finished at 31 Jul 2012 17:18:59 HST with an elapsed time of 15d 07:03:59, the better part of two days behind our Division winner Naos 30. We were warmly greeted by a very welcoming crowd of fellow racers, along with Mai Tais and pineapple. We were so beat that I wasn’t in much shape to blog much, and have also been busy with our changed delivery plans — we will be shipping Temerity home aboard Matson, rather than sailing her home ourselves. We decided that it was probably too great an effort for just the two of us, we were not confident about the time required, and the lack of an autopilot makes it a complete non-starter. Saturday we are locating to the Waikiki YC for temporary berthing before prepping the boat for decommission and shipment to the mainland. Goodbye Kaneohe!
