Rainy with sunny patches
Three hour sail from Virgin Gorda to Nanny Cay Marina. Had some rain along the way! Felt like home... But warmer. Winds were 10 to 20 knots.....Stagger Lee sailed at 6.2 knots at one point! We seen our friend Richard Branson on our way out of the Marina! Waved hi for you too Kate😀
We are on the island of Tortola now. Listed Stagger Lee with a broker here and will be making the most of each day of our long awaited for adventure!! Will post pictures of Tortola soon!

At the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor getting Stagger Lee cleaned up and ready to sail after six months on the hard. New rigging and lifelines, new thru hulls and seacocks. Clean and clean more! Friends are talking about visits and that would be great! Took a on hour walk to The Baths today. Sitting having lunch at the local watering hole. A great start to the New Year!

Getting ready to go ....... Virgin Gorda for New Year's Eve!

Stagger Lee has new sails, Rigging, Lifelines and all exterior mill work has been refinished. She will be going in the water next week. Troy and I are packing and will be spending Christmas in the lower main land with our family, children and grand children before we fly out on the 29th. Since we will be in the BVI for a while, I thought I would connect with the sailing world.

We have been dreaming of the sailing life for many years. Now that the last 2 of our 4 children have graduated and are in university, we have been getting ready to live the dream. We sold our 3000 ft plus family home and downsized to a cozy condo. [...]
Extra: We are inviting our family and friends to visit and stay with us on Stagger Lee! Cheers!
