We should have been off on our delivery today (Wednesday), but due to some shortfalls and delays in the commissioning of the boat, it looks like we will only depart early on Friday morning. Today we hope (wind permitting) to have a test sail and quick shake-down of Oceans Dreams systems and then have any last minute adjustments made.

Thursday is our scheduled clearing out day - a lot of last minute running around and visiting the local port office, immigration and customs office. Then we hope to settle down to a restful night on board and a visit to the fuel dock on Friday morning before departing on our first leg to St Helena Island, a trip of 1700 nautical miles. Lets hope that the winds are favourable and we can arrive in James Bay before Christmas day!

Before we depart I will do a test radio transmission to check that I can post to the blog to be able to keep everybody updated on the trip. So, for now we are all holding thumbs for a good shake-down sail and not too many extra faults found on Oceans Dream.
