After two years of being on the hard in Jolly Harbor Marina, we returned to TwoLoose at the end of Dec 2018 to put her back together again. It took us about two months to do all the things required to make her habitable as well as operational. Clearly she did not like being left untended for that long!

We flew to Cancun, MX to join Peter's eldest daughter (Cindi) and her family for an Island Christmas before we flew off to Antigua to rejoin the boat after a 2 year absence. Cindi's husband, Arturo, son Andres (22) and daughter Amaya (18) and their collection of animals (1 horse, 2 cats, 3 dogs and only one male amongst them!) all made us feel quite welcome. It had been TOO long since seeing them.

After 21 days (including Christmas & NYE) at sea S/V TwoLoose with Captain Pete, Crew Bob “Hokie” Baran and Crew Annette arrived Jolly Harbor, Antigua. The crossing from Pasito Blanco, Grand Canary was basically uneventful. We used the jib the entire transit - never put up the main and motored only a few days in the beginning as we escaped the wind shadow created by the Canary Islands. Winds & seas were predominantly from the NE (as predicted); on our starboard quarter creating the somewhat unnerving “washing machine/corkscrewing” effect on boat & crew. Only serious impact was on Captain Pete who injured his back while refueling immediately before our departure. Thank goodness Bob had brought a back brace which Pete used to improve his mobility greatly!

TL's maintenance period started later than we would have preferred - for many reasons - none of which truly matter in the end. We're in it now and we will get the most of it even if we drift into warmer temps and delay the start of this season's cruising season.

After another rocky ride, we arrived 23 Sep in the beautiful town of Corfu on the island by the same name. Aside from the intriguing mix of architecture brought by former occupiers, the locals are very friendly and despite economic conditions seem to make the most of their situation.
