Re: Spirit 28 owners?

I am taking a route from around Orange Beach near Alabama, may use Barber Marinia to launch. We used the area in 2011 when I helped take a friends 1986 Tartan 34 to St. Thomas. Its about a 4-7 day sail across the Gulf of Mexico to Key West on a rhumb line. Then around Florida and accross the Gulf stream to West End on Grand Bahama. I will follow the islands down.
I will spend several months in the Bahamas, my wife and I used to own a second home in Abaco in Marsh Harbour. We know the Bahama out islands VERY well.

I have raced in Reggatta Time in Abaco in 2009 aboard a Farr 395 as a crewman. We won the race!!
We paln on Cuising from November till May, then return home for 6 months. Then do it again over and over!!

We have visited my friend in St Thomas and sailed his Tartan in the BVIs for about 3 weeks in 2012.
We cant wait to get back too the islands!!!
