You need to go!!!!

just thought I would share some of our adventure with y'all



we sailed a little over 2000 miles under a lot of variables. Max speed was 12.5knts over ground, In the Gulf stream. right after that We took the spinnaker down,


This was the other mode, It seemed like we either had the chute up or were double reefed.


We got to see this a lot. The water in the Bahamas was beautiful.

We got visited by Home Land security twice it turns out that they were
looking for a drug boat. they taped us and we taped them. I wish we could trade photos.



I caught a few fish Imagine that



We had a lot of fun getting to know the Bahamians.




The scenery was wonderful.


We even got to see wild life




We got to race with the Bahamians on C Class boats What a trip



Out on the Pry Mon



Can you say SA\D


We had a great time. the end was depressing



We really did have a good time. We took over 600 photos and about 6 hours of video. I have to get a video up but all of that is on the mrs's Mac so it might take me a bit.
Anyway I need to thank everyone here, all the great posts that I have read helped a lot.
And with out Gui's help on my screwed up rig It would have been a lot less enjoyable.
Thanks Alex,
I could get my helm near neutral in almost every wind speed. When I come to Portugal I'll Buy you a beer or some wine
John,
It was good to see you again. Hope you are well.

All boats are sinking it's just a matter of how fast.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Very nice, I even liked your take on the "beer" commercial.

Great pictures Matt. Makes me wish I'd gotten down soon enough to go over with you. It's was good to see you again though and finally meet Joanie, down here at Boot Key. (Have to admit though, when I saw the title about wildlife, thought I was gonna see me ;0 )
