Bob, another Caribbean beauty!!
Slowly, and I mean very slowly we've travelled clockwise around Tortola. We spent a few days around the Road Town area discussing our new enclosure system with the people at Dolye sails. These people are the best, very generous and so very helpful. Part of the prep for the bimini was having the clew of the main raised eight inches to accomodate a new bimini height of about six foot three inches. We dropped off the main for a days for that to occurr and then when we went to put it back up I discovered a tear in the luff tape at the head of the sail, arggg! So we are now planning to go back to Doyle and have them make that repair.

We've been in Trellis Bay along with about fifty or sixty of our closest chartering friends, the place is packed. Actually there are about seven of the Caribbean 1500 boats here and it's nice to be able to recognize sailors who have made an extra effort to be here. We've tried cocktails and dinner at the Loose Mongoose and will do the Last Resort when Laura arrives in a few weeks.

Today is beach hunting, as we prepare for the arrival of our holiday guests. We'll propable sail over to Peter Island and check out the beaches there and then tomorrow go back to Doyle in Roadtown to drop off the main.

The project list is actually getting shorter as we are working on projects in the morning, playing/exploring in the afternoon. BTW, the water is close to 81.9 degrees F, the same are the air, ah paradise, it's hard no to like, right??

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.
