Thanks for the heads-up!

I am planning to attend the show, but it will most likely be during the day on Friday (unfortunately hubby has to work and won't be able to join me.) But I will keep an eye on the thread and swing by if I can.

Thanks again!

Welcome Ropeclimber,
getting to the top of the mast is more than many here have done (myself included)

Not a very marketable skill, if you ask me, but I figure it'll come in handy if I ever need to retrieve a halyard.
Actually a HIGHLY marketable skill when a halyard zips to the top of the mast by accident! .. sounds like any work aloft isn't going to give you the heeby jeebies..

Welcome to the forum!!

My wife and I are great fans of flotillas, and we think that it is unfortunate that flotillas are not as popular with Americans as with Europeans. We've been on four flotillas in the Mediterranean -- Greece, Italy and Croatia -- mostly with UK companies. European flotillas are reasonably priced once you're in Europe. However, based on Caribbean flotilla literature, the boats much smaller. We sail with Yanks every weekend, so sailing with Brits was a welcome change.

Don't feel bad, when I read a thread about it (a few weeks ago) I had to basically do the same thing. I had visions of the Spanish Armada - I may not have been all that far off!

WOW! A group of sailboats all sailing from one island to the next together. Sounds like that would be perfect for my family when we finally pull the trigger on our trip. That's definitely less scary than sailing around on our own.

Thanks for the tip!
