When we get to the islands and have an internet connection, we'll be posting photos and longer updates to our sailing blog:
January, 2017: Pearl and I will take the train from our home in Cascabel, Arizona to Philomath, Oregon where Minimus waits on a trailer.
--Late January, 2017: We'll trailer Minimus from Philomath, Oregon to Santa Barbara, California. We'll launch her there, then drive the truck and trailer back to Oregon and return them to their owners.
--Early Feruary, 2017: We'll take the train from Philomath back down to Santa Barbara where we plan to spend a few days tuning the rig, stowing provisions, etc.
We'll then set sail for San Diego on a roughly 200 mile shakedown trip which should take several days. In San Diego, we'll meet up with friends and family and do final provisioning.
--Early to mid-February: We'll depart from San Diego on the longest leg of the voyage, roughly 3000 miles to the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia.
--Rest of 2017: We hope to be sailing west through the South Pacific.
