One of the best things about cruising is meeting new people. One of the worst things about cruising is seeing them sail off in another direction.
We made some great friends here on the dock at Lauderdale Marine Center. Fred and Cindy are both dive masters bound for the British Virgin Islands. They are soon to be working at the Leverick Bay, Dive BVI shop. They just traded their 35' cruiser for a beautiful Amel 53 SuperMaramu. Mike, another new friend, sailed the boat up to Florida from Venezuela and is crewing for Fred and Cindy on the 8-10 day trip down to the BVI. We miss them already.
