[DAY 45] Feeling better

Even though the conditions had not changed, I felt a little better my body was adapting to the rocking but it will change again next time I am back in the water…

Maria spotted a Japanese boat on the horizon and decided to contact it on the VHF radio to ask them about potential rendezvous for our electric engine part for our RHIB. Apparently, something got lost in the communication, the accents didn’t help, and few minutes after her call the Japanese coast guard and then after the US coast guard from Hawaii contacted us to make sure there wasn’t an emergency. It was very reassuring to witness how fast the coast guards responded and how dedicated they were.

  1. Japan coast guard will not play around. They ard very efficient when it comes to boats entering near Japan.
    The Japan CG has a massive range to cover. Any run in with them will result in days of interviews of all crew members. Ask Tony, one minior error in a shipping lane took months to clear up. I have been lucky and avoided their watchful eye.
