Off to the Virgins on Monday or Tuesday or ...
We are leaving Chesapeake Bay for St Thomas as soon as we get a weather window from Monday onward. The estimable Valiente will be one of the crew. We are looking forward to the trip. It has been a long time coming and a great many hours (not to mention a great many boat bucks) have gone into prepping Ainia back to her former glory as a trans-Atlantic vet and Bermuda Race entrant (back in the day when the term racer-cruiser meant something).
Wish us luck.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
