In case any of you didn't get earlier messages, Toby Hynes, Bill Cyphers, Norm WEILL and Tom Bittenbender are moving the sailing vessel, Comocean south to the Bahamas. Norfolk and Beaufort NC are well behind. So are the Gale Force winds of Friday and Saturday that took us to Beaufort. Leaving our hiding place at the Beaufort town docks at four we traveled through the night and are now in the middle of the Gulf Stream. As I right this, we are surrounded by a pod of large Dolphins. The crew is excited. It may not be as exciting as the Pats, Texans or Eagles, but it's all we have! Norms on the Ham Radio. Everyone has books out.

The saying is "never cross the Gulf Stream with an N in the wind direction. Our wind is ten to twelve out of the north. Wind against current can be ugly. Seth gave us great coordinates and our crossing has light current, so we are running smooth in three foot seas. I think if we live by that saying we will still be in Beaufort in January.

We are now 360 miles from Bahamas. We need light winds when we enter so there is no "Rage". The forecast for our probable Wednesday morning arrival is light seas. GREAT NEWS,
