Date of Departure 8/5 09:00 Course 000
We set sail today on a course due north to get up and over the high - somewhere about latitude 40. Our voyage should take us some 2600 nautical miles. I have been waiting a long time for this and I'm so ready for the voyage to begin. I will be sending email to our stateside communications officer who will forward the messages as well as posting to the blog - something I can do directly from the boat. In addition, we have a satellite tracking device which beams a message every 4-6 hours. You can follow Compromise on the blog by clicking Satellite Tracking - Return. Click Boat Selector then click the drop down arrow next to Return 1. Click the box next to Compromise then select Boat Selector again.
My love to all,
