the best of the best.....
Last Leg ...HOME

Wayne and crew ( Fred Darlington and Tom Hagan) left Ft Lauderdale on Friday August 15th at 9am. It is a 1600 mile sail and Wayne thought it would take between 8 - 10 days to arrive home. (average speed is about 150 miles per day) I haven't heard a word although Tom's wife did hear on Saturday night from Tom via satellite phone that there wasn't much wind and they were approximately 160 miles off the coast of Georgia.
Everyone has been asking me if the tropical storm "Fay" will be a problem. I think the guys are well north of it and if anything may have some favorable winds due to the storm.
I am hoping for an arrival on the weekend as I want to be there when they come into the harbor. I would hate to be at work!!! Can't wait to hear their stories.... Can't imagine what they are eating! Wayne said he would cook. He sure doesn't at home....
I just can't wait .....

P.S did I mention BIG PARTY when the boat is here?????


Look at the cute Dingy!

This is our new dingy - the Bluewater Baby! Yes, it does fit in the dingy davits, and the total weight with the engine (15 hp - 4 stroke whatever that means) is 400 lbs. It has a canopy (great for the islands), storage in the front, and a bilge pump isn't it cute????
