Nine days and counting

We pull out of Baltimore in 9 days and start to head South. First to Hampton and then to Tortola on the second of November, weather permitting. Only a few tasks keft to do - bottom and running gear cleaning, rigging inspection, inverting the dinghy on the foredeck, installing jacklines, stocking up with food and water then we are out of here.

Speciald,

Sounds like a grand adventure...green with envy. How are you heading down? Over to the Bahamas-then offshore or taking the 'Thorny Path'?
Well at any rate, good luck with the preparations and fair winds! Bob

Have a great trip. I'll be in the BVIs for a couple of weeks just before Thanksgiving, if you see me give a shout.

How do you sleep at night?
You guys must be so excited.
Good for you.
