Peace on the water.
Got hooked on sailing with a friend's invite to sail in the Apostles about 15 years ago. Sailed the Apostle Islands 20+ times in the summer, circumnavigated Tortola in the British Virgin Islands 7 times in winter, once through the markers of the Florida Keys and once off the coast of Sao Miguel Island in the Azores.
No. "The best two days of a person's life is the day they buy their first boat, and the day they sell their first boat." Yet, "The time you spend sailing is NOT deducted from your life."
Cruising; Chartering Bareboats; Daysailing; learning Celestial Navigation & Off-Coastal Navigation . . .

So far, so good. Can't wait to meet up again with Captain Doug and everyone I enjoyed sailing with on Zeeto! Pictures to follow.
Bruce, I just returned from the BVI and did not have a chance to repond until now. You are correct, I did not have the dates for week 3 because it had been added later and I did not update the brochure. The dates were March 8-15, too late for you to have made it anyway. I will probably do the BVI again next year and hope you can make it.
Welcome to the group!
I will be on a Beneteau 43 from TMM Yacht Charters called "Barefoot Life". Give me a call on the VHF or send me an email at [masked] if you get the chance. I am an ASA instructor for Joan and hope to hook up with her sometime. She did not know the name of the boat she will be on down there, so I cannot call her on the VHF.
Bruce, welcome! Thank you for joining our group. Nice profile pic! I look forward to meeting you at our next event.
