    There is also a WaterTribe forum where people who are in the race will be posting race reports. If interesting stuff is going on this is place where it will be discussed.

    Good luck to you Tom. Everything I have read on the EC portrays it as the paddle/sailing craft event of the year. It's on my list, now, if I just knew how to sail....

    Stay safe out there.

    Go Tom go!

    Have been following your Spot track since the start. Was thinking about you guys out there when the rain was threatening to break through my windows this AM, looks like you got underway a bit after the bulk of the mess went through however. 

    Can't wait for a report on this.


    Edit: I see there was an optional weather hold. Just browsing through the Duckworks site now, and it linked me to the Watertribe page.
