Looking at Boston-Logan Airport webpage at departures for international flights, I got: (flight times is in Eastern Standard time)
AerLingus 136 to Dublin 620P
AirCanada 359 to Toronto 1104A
AirCanada 36

Are they taking a direct flight for this first leg, or are they hitting another airport on the way?

I only listed the ones that are crossing the Atlantic to Europe.  There were many AirCanada flights that I didn't want to take my time listing.

If they were stopping at another airport, then the first city could be anywhere.

Boston huh? A nice city with great colleges.

I would have to say likely starting line locales would be Fenway Park or the Bunker Hill Monument.

From Fenway Park to Logan Airport, the best way is to take the Green Line MBTA to South Station and ride the Blue Line MBTA to Logan Airport.

South Station's on the Red Line. You want to take the Green Line to Government Center and then the Blue Line to the airport. (Government Center stop noted by experience on the MBTA Green Line.)

Edited to add that I've never actually seen anywhere that you can connect to the Blue Line. Although the MBTA site says it's open, I don't think I've seen a Blue Line train at the Government Center station.

The MBTA Blue line does connect to the Government Center Station.

Or not, they could be flying through Heathrow to somewhere else in Europe.

All departures from Logan today. You can sort by gate and I assume those with B are in terminal B.

Just out of curiosity, what if they weren't going to Europe.  What if they are going to the Caribbean via Miami.

Found this on Facebook:

[Name Removed] TAR has left from Boston. The world awaits.
11 minutes ago

I don't think they're going to Europe either. I was anticipating Carribean for first leg, but I thought Boston was too far north...

But more importantly, if TAR has already left, then they must be on a flight to Dallas, Miami, or Chicago.

If South America or the Caribbean/Central America is the first stop, where or what country would they be visiting?

From the other thread.

Those haven't departed yet. That's why I'm asking has TAR left the airport?

Woden says no. Perhaps Denmark? Looks like we're in for a 4-continent race.

American Airlines is located at Terminal B, building 2. 
-Flights to London-Heathrow, LAX, Paris-CDG, SFO, Dallas-Ft Worth, Chicago-ORD, and Miami are departing out of that area.

Okay, so connect any AA flight departing from Boston in the early AM to any city you listed. It's not a direct flight, then.

Found new tweet.  The race began in Gloucester at a yacht club.

That would be wrong, as the race started in Boston.

TO CLARIFY: Teams have NOT left Boston yet (as of ten minutes ago).

This update from an eye-witness: "They are currently at Logan Airport in Boston. Not sure where they are heading, but they are in the area of the terminal that is bound for Frankfurt, Germany."

So there is a strong probability that frankfurt is the first leg?

Don't jump to conclusions too quickly. Gloucester (not England) is located 45 minutes from Boston, a short drive away (similar to Pahrump of TAR 2).

The Yacht Club is a historical place there.

Looks like Sri Lanka is now safe to visit with the cancellation of the travel warning there.
