All Set for our 12 Hour Pelagic, 8/27

We have a nice weather forecast, a good group of birders and well-prepared guides -- we are good to go for our fall deepwater pelagic coming up this Saturday, on August 27th.  This one is for the early birds (birders) -- we will be meeting at Newport Tradewinds at 5:30 am and departing at 6:00.  Our goal again is to cross the 1000 fathom depth contour, just as we did last spring when we found our Hawaiian Petrel.  No guarantees on pterodroma sightings, however.  There are still a couple of spots available on this once a year fall trip.
