Leg 1 to the ARC+ was completed for us on Saturday 11/16 at 11 pm local time. 937 nautical miles in 155 hours (6 days 11 hours). We held an average speed of 6 nautical knots for the entire trip. We have never sailed this far and this long without engine power. We are incredibly proud of our little old boat and what she's able to do.
The prize giving event was last night 11/19/19 and it was a spectacular event. Prior to the prize giving we noted our LEG 1 Division C preliminary results on the leaderboard outside the ARC Office. We came in FOURTH with a corrected time via our handicap. We are super excited about our performance and even more excited about LEG 2 to witness what NEVERLAND can do in the easterly winds.

We plan to write some notes here about our sail trip and the preparations for it
