New Season, New Site

31 July 2008 | Trinidad
With the new cruising season underway we have moved our blogging to a new site, which will hopefully mean easier browsing and easier writing.

I will gradually migrate the history onto the new site as well

Gareth's 40th Birthday

13 July 2008 | New York City
Tim
Gosh planes are fast, it took us 8 months to get from Chesapeake Bay to Trinidad and 5 hours to get back to NYC!

A long weekend in New York to celebrate Gareth's 40th, lots of food, beer, Leicester City paraphenalia and banter made for a fabulous time.

From here Linda flies to Canada, while I go to the UK and we change from 24/7 in a 51' boat to different continents for 3 weeks - it will be strange!

Aground In Trinidad

08 July 2008 | Chaguaramas Bay, Trinidad & Tobago

We arrived in Trinidad earlier this week after an uneventful night sail, and dropped anchor in Chaguaramas Bay, Trinidad. Trinidad will be our home for hurricane season, while we do some maintenance and keep our insurance company happy, but our first job is to slip the boat as we are heading home for a month.

It's always scary to see your home suspended 6 feet off the ground, but Peakes Yard did a great job and we were soon spending a sweaty few days getting ready for our trip and starting the haul out work.
