So the Rancho Deluxe is packed and ready to go. The excitement is in the air.

Months of preparation have led us to this moment, and we are excited to be here on the eve of Transpac 2007.

Our weather forecast has gone from dismal to perfect. We anticipate a windy start tommorrow. We leave the Long Beach starting line, then Catalina Island to port and race out to the sea breeze or synoptic wind (wind that blows all night and is not affected by land) and hope to get there before sundown.

Then we reach till the tropics fill in, set the spinnaker and the get on the mai tai express to Diamond Head.

We will be posting during the trip, the crew and I wish all of you a great few weeks and we look forward to seeing you soon!
