The send-off from St. Augustine was incredible and it is hard not to be affected. The escort was by the Coast Guard, police and the yacht club, while Billy Black, renowned yacht photojournalist, weaved in and out of the traffic. It was quite something. A loyal crowd on the dock and more on the bridge. Makes me really humble. Now approaching the real start line on the existing record, I do not expect much attention and my focus will be on safely rounding the shoals and reefs north of Bermuda, and crossing the line due east and within one mile of St. David's Light, where Dodge Morgan, on his yacht American Promise, began his 150 day, 6 hour and 1 minute odyssey. I shall begin mine on Kiwi Spirit.
