We have a new Tracker – a DeLorme – which will allow us to send a satellite signal out giving our position. It was a requirement for the Salty Dawg rally we’re about to embark on from Virginia to the BVI’s – a roughly 10 day passage. We’ll be sending out positions every 4 hours once we start – probably Saturday morning. You can track us here: https://share.delorme.com/Toodleoo
Unfortunately, we’ve had our first abandonment… Ship’s cat Bella is headed back to Massachusetts, to new Staff. With our constant changing of schedules and destinations, it was proving impossible to have a cat aboard without risking the possibility of her being put into quarantine – or worse – and suffering potential high penalties. So, a very difficult decision made but Bella’s new staff Marie will undoubtedly take really good care of her – with routine visits to the groomers, etc. – and she’ll be with her sister, Lola. She will be sorely missed by her old staff, the crew of Toodle-oo! There’s not a dry eye on the boat.
