Also let me know if you want any weather while you're on your trip.
I have access to lots of good weather data.

Good morning Jean, how are you? Your trip sounds wonderful, wish I could go...I sailed on schooners for 10 years in Key West, Caribbean, and S. Pacific-I miss it with a passion...Have you been to Staniel or Highborne Cay in the Bahamas? Beautiful places...also Stocking Island in Goergetown-my favorite beach so far...Fair winds and full holds, Cathleen
