We're here and ready for the start. Kitty flew home to take some time off after a month of sailing and south. Russ Lake arrived they same day to take over duties as first mate and bottle washer. He's done much more than that and has contributed greatly to our readiness.
After a week of seminars and preparation we have gotten the word that the rally will start a day earlier than scheduled to take advantage of a weather window between front. Though for us it seems we'll have a fairly rough time for the first 48 hours or so.
Here is Russ "the navigator" doing some prep for tomorrow. image1
