Hawaii to Tarawa Voyage, Update #3

Day 1. Tuesday, May 4, 1999, 2023 GMT
40 miles from Kona...
Latitude: 19deg 5.5 minutes North
Longitude: 156deg 27.7 minutes West

Jason has made good progress against the winds and currents and has powered Moksha 35 miles to the south west in the last 24 hours.

Some how one of the communications companies involved in relaying the Inmarsat C messages between Moksha and we terrestrials has messed up the accounts and is working to straighten it out. In the mean time, Jason has relayed his position by voice and reports that all is well.

We hope that the communications snafu will be resolved by tomorrow and he can file a proper report.

Thank you,
The GOALS Team
