Peru to Penrhyn Island. 160 days at sea. 5000 nautical miles. Time for a rest. More to come.
Yup, that it. In true/humble Tom Robinson fashion, less is more (especially after such a remarkable achievement).
We have not yet spoken with Tom, as it seems important to let him experience the joys of landfall without outside communications, but as son as we do speak with him we’ll send an update to OCH members. For now, we imagine that the reception he’s receiving is even more remarkable than the normal warm/enthusiastic/generous welcome that small remote islands in the S. Pacific are known for.
