I just finished a short QSO with Neil W6FOG on VO-52. He did confirm that
when he attempted to start his sailing trip he ran into very bad weather and
after 16 hours of high seas and rain, he had to call the Coast Guard to come
get him and tow him in as he was suffering from hypothermia. The tow broke
3 times on the way in as conditions were quite bad.
At any rate he is hoping to start out again this coming weekend on Saturday
Please keep in mind that I am only relating conversations I have with Neil
on the air.I have no other contact with him and am in the dark about things
just as much as everyone else sometimes. Please post comments on the -bb
whenever you contact Neil on his trip.everyone is interested in the latest
from him as he makes his way from San Francisco (CM87) through the Panama
Canal to the Caribbean.
