1995 was interesting. Here I am at about 1:30 in the morning on July 24th having a beer and cigar while sailing across the equator off the west coast of the island of Celebes, and the Indonesian state of Sulawesi. You have to celebrate these kinds of things when you are at sea. I was helping a guy move a sailboat from Kota Kinablu, Sabah, Malaysia, down to Bali, Indonesia for a yacht race to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Indonesian independence (which I was on another boat for). The GPS display on the right shows us at a longitude of 119 degrees, 26.454 minutes east, and about 200 feet south of the equator.
