A Voyage to Savor!

We have just returned from 10 days in the Virgin Islands. We spent a few days on St. Thomas (USVI) at a house with a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea. Then is was off to Tortola (BVI) for our 7 day charter aboard Promiscuis, a 58 foot Leopard catamaran. The captain and chef did a fantastic job of keeping us happy and saitiated. We visited all the major hot spots with the highlights being the Soggy Dollar, the Baths, sailing to and from Anegada and snorkeling. The weather was fantastic as we had 20+ on the knot meter when we sailed. 12 years ago we had 12-15 during the same time period so this was a nice surprise. We were joined by 3 other couples that we have known since the 80's. We had a long day of travel coming home but it was all worth it. Good to be back. Our boat is getting some bottom paint this week and the adventure continues this weekend with more excursions on the bay! Here is a video that depics the adventures we had to the old world.

Sailing to 80 knots!

We are celebrating 17 years of bonehead moves on the water! That's pretty amazing. In that span of time, I have enjoyed some of the sweetest times of my life thru sailing. Here are some highlights: a 7 month voyage to Mexico and back to SF. Six Baja Haha's. Chartering in BVI's, Belize, La Paz (2), Grenedines, and on Monday we head back to the BVI's on a 58' cat with a captain and chef abaord. Thousands of sails on our Newport 30 (17 years) and our latest, a Jeanneau 40 (5 years). I could not not be much happier with our current boat. We installed a bluetooth anchor system recently for stress free anchoring from the cockpit. It doesn't get much better than this! Heading out today for one last sail before a sailing vacation. Bon voyage to us and 8 friends!
