Bob, this is another Caribbean beauty
We sailed from the Bight in Norman Island to Gorda Sound in 15 to 20 knots of beautiful wind and waves. The plan was to hook up with several other Caribbean 1500 boats and have a Thanksgiving Day celebration together on the beach. It worked out perfectly; 12 or so 1500er boats, adults and kids. Each boat crew contributed something to the meal. Alice baked a pumpkin pie, made dressing and even cooked a turkey breast. So with our food offerings, our wine and good spirits we dinghied in and joined the celebration. So many stories now focused less on the trip and more on discoveries in the BVI and plans for the future. Danny Simm, New Zealander, from Ocean Pearl, lead all of us a prayer of thankfulness and appreciation for all our blessings. He spoke from his heart and inspired all the people gathering around him. His words help ground us all in the true meaning of praising God and being thankful. Thank you Danny for your eloquence and message. he and Yvonne are planning their return to New Zealand for the Holidays and then the long sail across the Pacific.

Life has slowed considerably for us. We work on projects in the morning and then explore or sail in the afternoon. Today we are off to Spanish Town and then the Baths. Don't know where we'll stay tonight but who cares, so many options.

I'm going to try and upload some pictures of the beach gathering and of the sail to Tortola, internet access is a bit iffy here in Gorda Sound off Leverick Bay.

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.
