Bob, IT'S WARM!!! Hurray
It poured all night long where we sat on our anchor in Deltaville. The wind kept the wind generator humming all night so our batteries are warm and tostie.

We got up around 07:00 and most of the boats in the anchorage had already left. So after talking about it for a few moments we decided to head straight for Hampton despite the small craft warnings, fog and rain. Gues what? No wind, very little ran and yes some fog. As the morning passed the sun came out and brought westerlies from 10 to 15 then 15 to 20 and we were going over 8 knots SOG (speed over the ground, a nautical term). By 15:00 we were in Hampton calling the marina on the VHF looking for our slip. Lucky Bird has landed and it is warm. Shorts, yes shorts.

So now we'll get the bottom scrubbed, finish all last minute projects and wait for Jeff and Randy who both arrive on Saturday. We have a few things for them to do and we'll all plan on attending the seminars. It's getting close to starting time and we are getting pretty excited.

After we leave on the 2nd we will have a transpondeer on board so I think you'll be able to track our progress. We will send and receive emails via the ssb as well as weather updates. With all the generating power we have on board I suspect we will be watching movies, making ice cream and taking lots of showers. Well maybe is all goes well. All we need are fair winds and reasonable seas, companionship will take care of the rest.

Alice and I have spent considerable time together on the water; cruising and racing on the waters of New England, the Caribbean and Lake Michigan.

Sailing is our passion and together we've been fortunate to experience the thrills, the camaraderie and the enjoyment boating provides. [...]

We seek the freedom, excitement and challenges of voyaging.

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
