Update: S/V Go For Broke, Honolulu to Kauai

Our beloved Go For Broke Captain and Crew are enroute from Honolulu to Kauai.  This shake down cruise will reveal any weak spots on the boat.  They can make repairs in Kauai before setting out across the Pacific. 

Each morning they will log on to the "roll call" on the SSB radio.  This is where cruising sailors out to sea call in to give weather conditions and news updates.  For loved ones at home, we can see that they've called in each day and at least, at the time of the roll call, that they were safe.  Truman says that they are in the North Pactific region and radioed into Longbeach.  They heard other people as far as Fiji and Alaska.

Feel free to check out the roll call daily to follow their progress!
