Waiting on Weather

This is a picture of Nicole and her friend Lauri Ann from Beach Magic.

The weather has been unusually active for May all over the Atlantic. Already, a named storm and many other lows are popping up, creating worry and keeping us in the Bahamas. We have followed our friend's blog on Tabitha. Eric is solo-sailing from Florida to England. He has experienced some very unpleasant weather due to the unexpected activity out there in the Atlantic. There have been several calls on the SSB for missing vessels and there is a US Coast Guard presence here looking for missing vessels. It is very important to file a float plan and make contact with any passing vessels. Just in case.....May is usually the most enjoyable sailing month. Not this year. Is this a sign of things to come this summer? Sorry if this seems ominous, but these are the things we need to think about.
Just a quick note, Marteen on Beach Magic has been tutoring Lisa in French. DJ is naturally picking it up from the kids. Nicole isn't interested in learning a new language, just like her dad.
