Jeff and Keirron launched their record attempt at noon today (Thursday, May 10) from North Beach on Orcas Island. The forecasts show a nice window of fair weather over the next few days, dominated by a ridge of high pressure. This is the kind of weather pattern they were hoping for, but it also means predominantly NW winds which will likely slow progress on the first leg of the journey up the inside of the Island.
Stay tuned for more progress reports as Keirron and Jeff report in by satellite phone. -- Jon
