Atlantic Island Voyage 1998: Preparation

18 August 1998 

Departed our mooring in Clarks Cove at 1 PM August 18th, filled our diesel and water tanks to the brim. We are now carrying 120 gallons of each. If we've forgotten anything important, we haven't discovered it yet....

Fine sail to Monhegan Harbor, all systems working well. Now for a couple of days of safety drills and shakedown before the big jump to the Azores, and perhaps a bit of carousing with Joel and Shifra's friends on the island. 

Weather looks good for departure in the next 2-3 days. No hurricanes in the North Atlantic at the moment.
