Let the Passage Begin

Well amigos e amigas, it's finally time...

We're finally off tomorrow, December 1, to start Leg 1 of our passage across the Atlantic Ocean!

As you can see in the weather file, there is another nasty low-pressure system rolling in later this week (the more color, the stronger the wind/seas). We are going to follow the route I laid out by the arrows and head south down the African coast to attempt to avoid the strong southerly winds...and then start heading west towards the Cape Verde Islands. We may have a quick stop-over in the Cape Verde's if we need diesel or just want a break. Then, it's time to head the next 2000+ miles towards the southern Caribbean Sea. Maybe we'll even make it by Xmas.

No internet for us for the next 3-4 weeks while we are out in the ocean, but we'll try to blog here as much as possible and fill you in with some stories.

Looking forward to finally getting underway and connecting with the big blue once again!

Send us positive energy whenever you think of us floating around in our little boat.

Much love to all of you from the Salty Dawgers

Much (good) luck to you on your crossing! If you happen to float north to NY/CT - let me know!
