Good-bye St Helena!

Latest Position: 03/29/09 1500Z 15 20.020S 007 11.849W (95 miles out of St Helena)

Zac finally pulled out of James Town Harbor, St Helena on early Saturday afternoon. All systems are go! He had a nice 20 knots for a few hours which died down to an anti-climactic 4 knots after a few hours. We spoke briefly this morning. He had planned to finish stowing things and put the finishing touches on a blog. I will post his blog when it comes but wanted you all to know that he is up and running and all is well.
Until Later,
Marianne

I think I heard a collective sigh of relief followed by the sound of tightening neck muscles as the ZacPac considers the next long leg.

Sail safe, Cap'n Zac and... Stay hydrated.

Cheers all

"That's what I'm talkin about!" Hope U are settling in O.K.
Thanks again to the St Helenians (sp?) and their hospitality. Total class act!

I found a post on Natazsa's blog in Polish and included a rough translation below. It seems she is about a day ahead of Zac and is talking about her radio signal being weak and her auto pilot not working well in the equatorial wind area.

I wonder if her and Zac are in radio contact.

From island 180 miles, 1600 zulu, saturday of position happens 14 45 page (s), send message (knowledge) in (to) 008 35 heavily juz, station reaches with (from) south-african republic barely, but from trinidad new else not. It can be, that I will keep silent by some (certain) time. But why everything it happens in night sie, can anybody < somebody > explain me? It has become autopilot (autoremote control) has fallen and it has sustained over half of world so. Damage awfully me, because it will not draw without wind at equator samoster.

Tally Ho! The Atlantic!

Zac has given us a new perspective and perception of the major oceans and seas of the world ... They're just bigger ponds than we're accustomed to.

Looking forward to his blog.

How much can others (Zac in particular) relate to that?!
