I just spoke to Jonathan. He confirmed that they are at Cordero Islands. We camped there in 2007 when paddled in that area. It is great rock ledge camp here is a picture of our friend Sandy relaxing : http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~walpole/pics/kayak/discovery/25.html
Jonathan said the wind was NW today which meant they were able surf the wind waves. He estimated they covered 25 nautical miles today.
The wind looks like to SE the next 3-4 days which means they will have wind against them.
