The three GSSR boats (two N62s and an N68) are currently underway between Japan and Taiwan, headed to Nordhavn’s Ta Shing factory in Tainan, Taiwan.
As I type this we are about 12 hours into a 48 hour passage.
We’re excited about seeing the factory, and the boats that are currently under construction.
We will be the first Nordhavns ever to return home to their birthplace, and the factory has quite a party planned to greet us.
Our position can be tracked in real time at the following link:
There is a storm working its way to our location, and we’ll be rounding the southern tip of Taiwan, with 20 knots of wind in our face, at 01:30 local time (16:30gmt on July 2nd). Thus far it has a relatively smooth passage, other than a constant 1 knot current which we are very tired of.
More when we arrive.
N6805, Sans Souci
PS I’m several days behind on my blog. I’ll work on it when we get to Taiwan. Ishigaki, our last port, was a long series of problems of one type or another, so I think we’re all very happy to be moving again. Ishigaki seemed to be bad luck.
