A little after 10 a.m. the tracking map showed Mosquito on the water. Finally! I am sure that Alan and Dawn are thrilled to be sailing. Good for them. I hope Paul will post some photos of them raising sail.
Below is a photo from Kristen showing her kayak and Christine's, who also had to drop out of race, being loaded up for the drive back to the starting point. By all accounts this race had the worst weather for a start. It will be interesting to hear some of the stories from the first two days of the event.
I do not know how long Mosquito will be on the water. Maybe a few weeks? How long does it take to circumnavigate Florida? I plan to follow along and will be posting updates every day or two.
