We are absolutely shocked at the positive response to the Slojo YAG Challenge and the funds raised so far.

Slojo does not  cast off for another 80 - 85 hours or so, and we have already exceeded our highest target ideas.

If  the Captain approves of full disclosure of funds raised, we will post the information here.

In the very near future, I see a virtual competition between yachts utilizing this YAG Format. as a framework.

To any readers that have donated, thank you thank you.

Slojo is off the dock early this morning.  They had a 24 hour delay getting out of San Diego but all is in order and they are now about 60 nm south of here.

I hear a rumor that Big Fish is fixing to challenge Slojo to a virtual competition.  Is there any truth to that?
