Nick and I are heading off to Miami for the 1000 nautical mile solo qualifying run.  I’ll keep you up to date on all the details, but it should take us 2 days to drive there.  The plan is to get to Miami by Sunday, launch and possibly rig….pending tides of course.  Then Monday we will make our way over to the mooring and get the no2 autopilot computer calibrated, the rig tuned and do a run out to the Miami Sea Buoy to appreciate the route.  A few little rigging things to take care of and then Thursday I’ll head out to the Sea Buoy to start the run.  🙂  Still haven’t got the Sat phone talking to the computer….hope a tech at Globalstar will call me back soon!
