I just talked to Andrew, and he asked me to report that Horn Island Hop is on! As of now, the island is open. The only reports of tar balls have been toward the east end, whereas the HIH takes us to the west end (nearly 20 miles away if I recall correctly). In case things change, they are working on alternate course plans, but as of now it's a go as usual. Expect further info from the Ocean Springs YC bunch very soon!
