    Some good news from Jeanne on her blog.

    She can now raise her mainsail fully.

    She seems to have sorted her battery charging problems to a degree but is reducing her use of the power hungry devices.

    She has got her electronic nav working.

    Less than 500Nm to go. Lack of wind must be frustrating.

    Some gal!!!!!!!

    Good grief, there’s a chance I might be able to see her come in if she’s back early next week. Anyone know where she docks in Victoria?

    She has now just under 100 miles to go, in light winds..... according to her blog. https://www.svnereida.com/blog





    I guess she'll have moved a few miles east of that plotted position by now - 0715UTC04Sep

    A momentous voyage!

    She's getting close to Swifsture Bank (not a hazard). Not long to go now.

    So, to answer the OP: No, not really. She's seems to be doing fine.

    Actually, now might be an appropriate time to worry about Milady Jean S.

    She's presently stopped - 'under way, not making way' - close to the Outer Mark/light-buoy at the western end of the Juan de Fuca Strait TSS. That's one of the world's busiest straits - just 11 miles wide in places - and she has about 90 miles of it to run before she can turn north for Victoria.

    Rather more than most, she knows what she's doing.... but in many environments 'it's the last long mile that's the most dangerous'.
