I am happy to report that all of our pre-race preparations are complete, and we are pretty much ready for the race to Hawaii. With the utter chaos of preparations behind us (yea! see the look of desperation on my face??), we now are free to focus on the racing.
We just wrapped up a practice session, ironed out the last kinks, and distributed some swanky looking crew gear. We have a truly great team who seem to have gelled right away, and the weather is looking like it is changing for the better, a trend which will hopefully continue until our departure on Wednesday at 2pm. We have a highly competitive fleet we’ll be heading out with, including some quick boats and some great sailors, so we have our work cut out for us.
The next update will probably be sent in sometime Wednesday evening, so definitely check back in… and wish us luck!
