Waiting to Start

We are sitting in a Marina in Hampton, VA, with the boat nearly ready to go, but just found that the start of the rally will be delayed. There is weather offshore that the organizers think is not suitable. We do not know if the delay will be 1 day, 2 days, or more.

Once the event starts, we will have a satellite transponder on board. To watch our progress, follow these instructions:

Go to You will see a blue box in the middle of the page that says "Follow the Fleet of the 21st Caribbean 1500." In the box you will see "Positions" Click on that link.

This brings you to a page that has the boats divided into groups. Look for "Cruising Class 7" and click on the link.

You will then see a map, and a list of boats down the left. Click on the yellow box to the left of "Callisto" to see us highlighted on the map (not much to see yet). You can click on the little arrow to the right of "Callisto" to get some more details, and even more if you click on "details."
