Okay, I was looking through my e-mail and totally missed this one... It mentions Brion's name, as well as a few details about the journey so it rightfully belongs here.
Hello to all the crew's family, friends and supporters!
I received a call this morning from Captain Mark, letting me know that the Lady was ready for their departure from Kingstown, St. Vincent. The crew is ready and the vessel is sound and stowed for her voyage home. Departure from St. Vincent was 9:00am (Pacific Time), 1:00pm in St. Vincent. First stop will be Bonaire. Mark expects that leg to take 3 days. From Bonaire they will sail to Colon, Panama, a 7-day leg to await transit through the Panama Canal. When we begin our transit through the Panama Canal you can watch our progress through the Miraflores Locks at www.pancanal.com . I'll let you know when to expect that leg of the transit. Below is the current compliment of amazing tall ship sailor's aboard the Lady:
Captain Mark Griffin, Master
Captain Kevin McKee, 1st Mate
Joel Kellogg, 2nd Mate
Dart Davis, Bosun
Cherlynn Resager, Bosun's Mate
Michael Kellick, Purser
Brion Spore, Cook -- My Brother
Louie Lambie, Electrician
Captain Sean Bull, Carpenter
Chris Stearn, Carpenter's Assistant

Voyage updates will be sent as I receive them from Mark so that we can keep you informed of our progress. You have been placed on this mailing list by a member of the crew. If you do not wish to receive updates, please let me know. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to e-mail me at any time.
Thank you for your support of our crew and the Lady Washington!
