トカラ列島へ 1 日目 Tokara Island Expedition Day 1

Leanne and Rik boarded the ferry today for Amami Ooshima, Kagoshima Prefecture. The ferry left at 6 and arrived in Naze at 5 am. Hopefully they will manage to drag their heavy tandem boat down the tetrapods (there is no slope) and will head north toward the uninhabited Yokoate Island and then on to Takara Island. Currently, according to the Japanese Coast Guard wind meter, the wind is blowing 3m/s. To follow their route during the next 2 weeks, check out their track at SPOT.

リアンとリックは今日鹿児島港18時出発で奄美大島へ向かって出発しました。奄美の名瀬港でスロープはないのでテットラポッドがあるところでカヤックと荷物を降ろして、奄美から無人島の横当島経由、宝島まで漕ぐ予定です。沿岸域情報提供システムのデータで奄美大島の笠利の灯台は今朝11時20分の風、風速3m/s。スポットSPOTでトラッキングされますので現在位置を分かるためにこちらを見てください。

Happy Sailing and a safe journey!

  • Hey guys, don't know when you'll see these comments, but I'm getting your SPOT messages OK and know that you're now overnighting after your first leg.
    Good luck.

  • thanks woody. we got your comment loud and clear. in fact here we are sitting in front of brand new computers with high speed internet on one of the most remote islands in Japan. so far things are going well, although the weather has been and will continue to be a force to be dealt with. hope you are doing well and enjoying your time on the lake.
