Confirmation and Details for all Summer Legs!

Greetings all,

I’ve finally got enough info together to firm up the summer route. Expect a series of leg update emails later today to confirm all routes through the Canal and into the Pacific!  Big adventure is planned!

Remember, weather can always bump the schedule, but if you are confirmed on a leg, you are a go for plane ticket purchase. Check leg details for airport locations.

A makeup trip to Key West last weekend completed most of the deferred prep from Leg 1, and left Reliant in good condition for departure from the States next weekend.  The solar panels worked, confirming the potential for cold beer at the start of each leg!  Most important.

Notice to Scuba Divers: Duties as “Sailing Master” leave me short on capacity to double as “Dive Master”.  In the spirit of El Caribe pirate ship democracy, I’m leaving dive research and planning to the crew.  Study your leg and pick some spots.  I’ll get the boat there and fill the tanks.  Any volunteers for “Dive Master” on a leg are accepted with pleasure.  No resume required.

Happy Mother’s day to all the moms, and below is an important message from the Quartermaster(aka Mom) on sea sickness:

“Here is the link to the Relief Band  If you use promo code “GH2017″ when ordering, you get Free Shipping and 20% off.  Not sure if it works, but it’s worth a try and it’s drug-free.”

“Another option is prescription scopolamine transdermal patches.  I’ve used them before and they worked for me, but it can make you drowsy if you’re especially sensitive to its effects.  Not everyone gets seasick, but for those of us who do, it’s important to prepare so you can enjoy every moment of the voyage.”  Debra Oates
