Issuma's TransAtlantic Passage Preparation

29 April 2008 | 48 35.73'N:004 39.88'W
Brittany
Richard and his intrepid crew are buzzing about preparing to fly to France to pick up Issuma, his new 16m (52') steel schooner, and bring her across the Atlantic. Richard and George are flying out Thursday, May 1, 2008, an auspicious day upon which to begin an adventure! Al and Peter will arrive a few days later.

Upon arriving in L'Aber Wrac'h in the northwest of France, Richard and George will begin stocking Issuma with supplies and sustenance. Once all crew is gathered, they will undertake a test sail into the English Channel. Barring any need for significant repairs, they will begin their journey. Exciting times ahead!

For those who have not lived in the Arctic, Issuma is an Inuktitut (Eskimo) word meaning knowledge, idea or wisdom.
