Many talk the talk but few walk the walk.
Would love to buy the crew beers just to hear the stories!

I am leaving now to drive to Delaware to meet the crew and boat.

All are ok and the boat is still running at 100 % It was purely a weather/sea condition issue that kept them from completing.

Original forecast was to only be 3 to 4 ft. when they got there in the middle of the night they were 10' to 12' ...

Great attempt guys !

I am sure you will try again soon.

Glad to hear they're on dry land again and glad everyone can stop worrying now. It sounds like they had quite an adventure.

Records don't last because they're easy to break.....

Hope to hear their tales, as well as their plans for another attempt.

Thumbs up Great Crew! 24 hours! TOOOOO long at sea!

Chris and Crew...well done and right decision....

Next time, arrange for better voice communications, so we can sleep!
