It’s back to the Caribbean leaving a chilly USA east coast for the winter months in the sun.

Hurry Up And Wait

09 November 2023 | Norfolk VA

That seems to be what we do these days. Since we left Boston, we've been in a hurry to get somewhere. I don't think we've ever fully grasped the basic principles of cruising and retirement. If you can suffer the video, you'll see our route south from Boston and what we got up to trying to get to Norfolk to leave within a week of the Salty Dawg rally.

The Dawg fleet of eighty insured yachts left Norfolk on 1st November and right now, or very soon, their crews will be enjoying a rum punch under the Antiguan sun.

We on the other hand, remain uninsured against "named windstorms" which, after all, are really the only ones to worry about, until 15th November.

We had thought we'd sneak away early but Mother Nature isn't working with us.

The good news is it's given me time to finish the latest video. The bad news is the GRIB forecast shows the storm in the pic is heading our way, right across our path in yet another week.

At this rate, we'll be in Norfolk for Christmas.
