18 August 1998
Departed our mooring
in Clarks Cove at 1 PM August 18th, filled our diesel and water tanks
to the brim. We are now carrying 120 gallons of each. If we've forgotten
anything important, we haven't discovered it yet....
Fine sail to Monhegan Harbor, all systems working well. Now for a couple
of days of safety drills and shakedown before the big jump to the Azores,
and perhaps a bit of carousing with Joel and Shifra's friends on the
Weather looks good for departure in the next 2-3 days. No hurricanes
in the North Atlantic at the moment.
