...and we're off!

After one short day in Gibraltar, we're off for the Canary Islands. I'm updating this quickly while we're still in cell-phone internet range; hereafter, we'll start using the satellite-phone-email blog updates. Conditions look decent, though at the moment we're motoring. With any luck we'll actually get to some sailing soon! We're heading out into the straight of Gibraltar now; the next few hours will be busiest, as it's a very busy shipping area, but we've got all our nifty electronics and radar hard at work (not to mention most of the crew watching) to keep us out of the way of the big guys. Updates when we've got 'em! 36 04.216 N 05 24.665 W 19:05 UTC 14 Nov 2009
