I had thought Webb would arrive St. Helena Island by Monday, but checking GANNET'S yellow brick chart I wonder if it could be tomorrow.
The Everglades Challenge will be starting a day late, the delay caused by 20 knot winds. I guess after the start a few years ago with about a dozen rescues they seem to be making decisions with a little more safety in mind. To account the for the lost day the starting line is moved to Checkpoint #1. From Kristen's instagram account it looks like everyone was enjoying the extra day of rest and relaxation.
It could have been a little warmer this morning in Elizabeth City. Temperature at launch was 38 degrees, warming to 49 degrees by the time I came in mid-afternoon. Winds were light in the morning, steady in the afternoon. Yes, it could have been warmer but I did fine with my ice-breaker thermals. A nice day on a beautiful river.
