We've hugged and shared last drinks and said goodbye a million times, but we're on our way tonight!
The boat is full of fuel and water, lots of provisions (the fridge is so full it takes ages to find milk for tea) and it's clean and tidy. The weather has finally decided to cooperate, so we'll leave tonight and take advantage of lighter winds at night.
Now, I'm going to ask for some audience participation. If you'd like to follow along where we are, this is how it will work. I will post a GPS location to the blog as we go. It looks like this:
N18 27.751 W 77 56.609
Now what you need to do is copy the GPS location above (the text in red), click through to http://netvicious.com/gps/ and paste the coordinates in the box in the upper left hand corner. Then just push the 'Convert and map' button and you will see where we are. On the upper right hand side is an option to toggle map vs satellite view, which might be helpful when we get out to sea. You can also zoom in and out using the plus and minus scale on the left hand side of the map.
If you see the Montego Bay Yacht Club on the map using these coordinates, than you're doing it right.
And we're off!
