We’re now at 1º12′ latitude, moving south at a good clip under sail (finally!), and we expect to cross the equator sometime within the next 24 hours. None of us has ever sailed across before, so that means today is the day to plan our shellback initiations. The good news is we’ll all be giving what we get in terms of hazing, and that’ll likely be an improvement over what some of you Navy guys experienced! Wish us luck, and we’ll write to you next from the other side.
