URASOE CITY, Japan -- (Apr. 3, 2009) Scarlette, a 1985 J/24 sailboat, will set sail for Tokashiki Island Saturday in the first long trip of it's kind for it's skipper and second mate.
Cap'n J and Second Mate Kai will travel across 25 miles of open seas to reach the island south west of the main island of Okinawa.
"I've been looking forward for this trip for a long time. The weather window is right so we'll head back on Sunday," said Cap'n J. Scarlette's crew will either stay on the boat or rent a small Japanese Inn on the island.
"We'll try to post some pictures as we travel via my cell phone," said Cap'n J. "Got to get to bed, because it's an early morning."
