Final Report from the Eclipse

Black Son & the Crazy Russian called at 7:50 am with a report of another cold night with fickle winds...meaning very little wind so the ended up rowing nearly 7 hours until the winds picked up around 3 am. They did pass Gary & Uncle Al during the night, they had their sleeping tents up and all was quite, but they did notice the empty wine bottles, Grey Poupon mustard and cheese wrappers littering the deck as the passed by :-). Grant wasn't sure when they got past them but figured it was in fog sometime. Grant said the winds are presently at around 15 mph and they are about 15 miles from Manistee. Should finish sometime between 10:30 - 11:30 am. They said they've had an awesome trip :-).
