This was something that worried me, as well.  Even though Pete Cummings
put a lot of effort into publicising the potential voyage, his newsletter
didn't start until late 1996, less than two years before the event.
Apparently there were attempts to publicise the project before then,
but even in 1995, three years before the event, seems quite late.

I will admit that my contribution was limited to assisting with distributing
Pete's newsletter.

For the moment.  Of course, why does the 600th anniversary have to be the
only one?
