At 10:02 this morning the delivery crew of Urban Renewal set off for their great adventure across the Pacific Ocean. Family and friends gathered to wish these four sailors fairwinds and calm seas in traditional Kaneohe Yacht Club style. Bloody Marys and Mimosas flowed as well wishers gave many hugs, kisses, handshakes, and of course a good old pat on the back to these fine men.
Urban set off towards the Sanpan channel and two boats tagged along for one last goodbye. Urban raised sails and started pulling away, she was moving fast and looking great. As she pulled into the channel the crew gave their leis to the ocean, turned towards us, circled around our boat, and set off. It was a perfect day to start their journey: clear skies, 8 knots of breeze, and calm seas.
