On Saturday, Dec. 7 at 1415 Zulu (International time based on Greenwich, England and also known as GMT and UTC), or 9:15 a.m. back home in St. Augustine, I crossed the line 0.8 nm due east of St. David’s Lighthouse to begin my challenge on the 150-day, - hour record, as well as to become the oldest and the first ever green. Bermuda Radio tracked the start and the “black box” issued by the World Sailing Speed Record Council was also monitoring. In addition, I forced an update on my Yellow Brick, which can be seen on my website. Yes, I was a little emotional, but it soon passed, and I got on with changing my course to bear away from a group of coral reefs that were fast approaching. The start was as Dodge Morgan, the record holder set it, one mile from the lighthouse. However, I noted only this morning that on his return he was three miles off shore when he re-crossed the line to finish. I shall follow suit, especially should I come in at night.
