All good plans.....

Not the result we were expecting ! 

We had planned to take a couple of friends over to Northern Ireland for a weeks sailing in Belfast Lough, two hours into the ten hour trip and the weather changed completely with large rough seas and a good 28knts steady wind instead of the 12-14 on the forecast. One of our friends fell ill, really ill and so we headed to the Isle…

maybe a little warmer than normal

On the gulf coast don't remember this much heat past several years, while on the water today the wind was just plain "hot", worried that it might effect our hurricane season

trip on the gulf.

No pics to post yet, but just finished an awesome trip from Mobile bay to Port St. Josehp FL. what a trip. did an over night pasage there, and one on the way back.  It was great weather, lil warm, but thats part of it.  I am so stoked, want to go for another open water passage.  I took the 4-7 watch so I could see the sun rise, ;) I got to see the sunset as well being the skipper I was up at all hours checking things, Gosh I love this sailing on open water, We out ran a storm first passage…

Almost there, thanks to your response

Thanks to Russell, Steve, Sail Dancer, Mark and Karen for your encouraging words. Now that I decided to buy the boat the challenge is finding a 3rd crew to assist with sailing her home. Time is short as I need to get plane reservations at a reasonable rate and have 'er home by August 2. There is always a challenge, always an obstacle to overcome and always a reason to change one's mind. Been trying to hook up with Suky but the computer, Sea Knots, and I are also having our communication…

Hello, is anybody out there???

Not one person responded to my question about wood/epoxy boats. So, on my own, with some research and a conference with my boat mentor, along with that good old woman's intuition the decision has been made. Tomorrow, I will make a reasonable offer on the trimaran of my dream.Okay, so she needs some prettying up, but I believe she is a secure well made beast that isn't simply good enough, rather she is going to complement SPRAY. A cross between my Corsair, SPRAY, and Slocum's cruiser, this…

Cold Feet

Oh dear, with this dern cold lingering another day my feet are awful chilly. Is it because of the reality of how incapacatated one becomes when hit with flu like symptoms. Just like seasickness that quesy stomach, accompanied with a weird headache and inability to keep food or drink flowing through the digestive tract took control of me yesterday. I was able to function, albiet laborously with the cold symptoms. When my stomach got quesy though, my ability to focus on reading, watching tv or…

To buy or not to buy, that is the challenge...

Back from the Catamaran Hotel in Rio Dolce, Guatamala, I keep asking myself, "Is this the right boat?, Is this really what I want?"

The cockpit seemed so confining, yet secure. The sails are in good condition, yet the main may need some sort of widget so when the sail comes down all of the little slides don't come out of the mast. The boat sailed a steady course yet we only had 5 - 8 knots to test her in. The brow over the gps on the port side of the helm has some cracks and is soft,…

Hurricane Season arrives in Florida!

Here we are starting Hurricane season 2011.  It's generally fairly quiet at the beginning at the season so while everyone has their hurricane kit prepared, it isn't too pressing.  YET.  (operative word there)

 

Sailed out near Cocoa in the intercoastal this past Sunday.  Winds picked up closer to noon with some excellent sailing just under the jib.  YEAH.  Why is it that sandwiches always taste so much better on the water?  Yummy. 

 

I have been practicing single…
