We're back, baby! Well, kind of. While Elizabeth and I are happily watching our children grow (yes, we have two kids now!), my parents have officially embarked on their own voyage and I cannot contain my excitement. I have been following them closely as they sail from Norfolk Virginia to the British Virgin Islands with the Caribbean 1500 - the same rally that we joined in 2008 to start our voyage. Only this time I get to sleep soundly in my own king sized bed at night and they are the ones dealing with winds on the bow.

Speaking of which, tonight they are heading into their third night of probably 10 and the wind is light, but directly on the nose. They have a decision to make: either motor into the wind and waves to make SE progress, or to sail off course toward Bermuda. So far the fleet of 62 boats is split with a portion of boats choosing each option, but it's interesting to watch them. You can do so by clicking here to access the fantastic Caribbean 1500 Fleet Tracker. Or better yet, Click Here to follow my parents blog (in which I am a frequent guest writer / base commander).
