Hi Terri,

Great to hear back from you. It's never too cold to sail (so the saying goes)! Last week was a bit cool and knowing it will eventually warm up I am waiting until Thursday to sail again. Aren't you scheduled for another island cruise sometime soon? I am jelous! If ever in Florida, let me know and we'll go sailing.

Cheers,

Manolo
