The Long-awaited Update

16 October 2008
Well, my apologies for the long delay since my last update of the blog.

My first delivery for the year was cancelled and at the same time I was offered a land-based position in Cape Town assisting the delivery company with the handover of new boats from the Robertson & Caine factory to the skippers and, in some instances, directly to the owners. It has been a hard slog but, as I had already agreed over a year ago to assist the purchaser of a new Admiral 40 catamaran to deliver their boat with them to Chaguaramas on the island of Trinidad, I have now left my land-based work to get prepared for the delivery, which should begin in early November.

Luke Tod, who has previously undertaken three deliveries with me, will be the 1st Mate and together with the owners, Adrian and Jackie, we will try and keep everyone updated on the trip.

I will shortly be adding a link on the side-bar of the blog to the "Oceans Dream" blog as well as updating the ShipTrak link to show only the position reports for the delivery and not all the position reports for the past few years. Reading the views of the delivery from two different aspects (my own v. the owners) should give a person a better insight of our daily lives on board.

So, in a few weeks we should be up and running with the blog again.
