After our first charter I thought, why own a boat up north when the best sailing conditions and underwater activity can be had in the Caribbean for a week at a time...and even though we're going back in a few months for another charter, the draw of the sea and sailing has convinced me that I need to own a boat up north because one week every few years just won't cut it.
I've got blisters on my fingers
