11. ON THE MORNING TIDE

11 ON THE MORNING TIDE

Dear Friends,

Just a quick note to tell you that we are scheduled to sail tomorrow morning, before noon.  The weather prediction is for sunny skies and light westerly winds, just the direction we want.

Our planned course is to sail south, to somewhere around 200 miles north of Bermuda, then easterly or northeasterly.  This circuitous course is designed to bring us fair weather and favorable winds, and maybe even a little help from the Gulf Stream.  Our first port is planned to be Cork, Ireland.  It will take us around four weeks to reach there, depending on the winds and weather.  I am excited about the voyage and ready to go.

So you won’t be hearing from me for a while.  Hopefully, I can talk to some of the young computer geniuses on board and try to figure out why I have had such difficulty sending email attachments.

Until then, farewell,

David
