Day 9, April 26, 2010. Galapagos to Marquesas - Record Day

Inspiration Lady and Bristol Rose have been within sight of eachother for the last couple of days. This is quite incredible considering that most of the time when blue water sailing you'll very rarely see another boat. Most boats who buddy up find it's not that easy to stay within visual range of eachother.
Gary and Jackie built their boat in their barn up in Canada over a 26 year period. They really do have an amazing ability to stick to a goal to see it through. Both boats have posted their personal bests; 200 miles in a 24 hour period. This achievement is somewhat of a holy grail for cruising boats.
We have another reason to celebrate today. We've passed the halfway mark after 8 days of sailing. That's about 1500 miles to go.
