Final preparations are being made here at the dock. The divers are under the boat doing one final cleaning, and just about everything is loaded on the boat. The crew are rigging lines and the “Before” picture of everyone lined up on the boat has been taken. This is the time where anticipation begins to build before we finally drop the dock lines and head out to the starting area. The weather is beautiful at the moment and the forecast looks pretty nice, though the sailing will be all upwind, hopefully with some reaching to make it a fast passage. Time will tell.
