Night Landfall

Night Landfall: "It was in 1996, on our first passage with Chiron from Seattle to her homeport in Newport, Oregon. Due to engine problems, we were several hours late getting to the waypoint outside of Yaquina Bay and we were faced with a night approach. Standing off until morning was not a reasonable choice since the weather was deteriorating and the engine was still uncertain."
