gone, updated

Update:  Webb's yellow brick shows him making 6kts.  Conditions must be ideal.
Wind in the low 20's and increasing as he heads southwest.


Webb's yellow brick track shows that he has left Durban.  After delaying departure for about a week he found a window of a few days where hopefully he can sail with wind on or aft of the beam.  Ventusky shows pretty ideal conditions right now.

If conditions continue to be favorable Webb will sail his Moore 24 GANNET around the Cape of Good Hope and continue on to St. Helena, reaching the little island in the Atlantic in about six weeks.

As for me, we've got a forecast of 74 degrees and 10 mph winds out of the SW.  Hope to get out for the first time this year on Sunday.
