Phil transport update

I heard from Louisa, Captain Dave's friend, yesterday evening.  They have had 3 days of thunderstorms, but are doing ok and past them.  Because the boat S/V Attitude is part of a race, there is a web site that you can track their progress.   It is:http://maps.iboattrack.com/m/cz/map?vessels=_ALL_VESSELS&history=Latest_position&v_scope=M2B_TB
Click on  the Vessel drop down top right and click on Attitude.  Depending on the button you click on after that, can tell how fast they are going and how far they've gone - This morning at 535am they had gone 479 nm , current boat speed was 7.1 knots - so they are flying.  Phil said the trip was 600nm so I figure they have at 7 knots a little more than 17 hours to they get to land.    What a nice feature.
