Hello, this is a test log from Hope to check log entry for our epic adventure. It all starts this Saturday on the 12 th of January 2019. We depart Rodney Bay St Lucia and sail to our first stop in Santa Marta Columbia. We have been working like dogs to get Hope as ready as possible. Still lots of things to do but we should be departing as scheduled. This evening Jim and Beverly arrive as they will be our crew all the way to Panama and through the canal. Sandy will be doing the final provisioning today for this first leg of our passage to Santa Marta.
It is so very exciting that the final days before departure are here. Still many things to do but all major items have been done. More later but for now this will be a good test of the path via land based email to our log.
