Today was quite a busy day! Doug Johnstone, our fearless navigator, arrived just in time to attend the mandatory skippers meeting along with Shawn and Gabriel. Items covered in the meeting included safety, weather and routing, check-ins, the YB Tracker that each boat is equipped with now, and the ti leaves brought over from Kaneohe for each boat to bring back to Hawaii.
Following the skippers meeting was the official Pacific Cup Bon Voyage party. With 5 out of our 6 teammates present things are really starting to come together, and a fun time was had by all.
You can now track exactly where Limitless is! This will be a 6 hour delayed position, but will be updated at all times. They did emphasize that if we for some reason disappear off the YB Tracker site DO NOT WORRY, it is almost certainly just a glitch in the tracker, not some disaster with the boat.

Notable accomplishments today:
- Mike and Shawn got the hood that goes over the sliding hatch re-bedded and fastened
- New starboard spinnaker halyard installed
- Water tanks plumbed
- Lots more fiddly little projects, each important and necessary to get done before we go. Feels like the list is endless, but we’re almost there!
