One foot on the ground
SETTING THE COURSE
Tomorrow morning Miranda and I will be catching a flight to Antigua where we will head to English Harbour to embark on a great adventure - circumnavigating the Leeward Islands on a bare boat charter. That means that between us we are in charge of everything on the boat. You can read the plan here.
We've been planning the trip over the last few months. We did a warm up earlier in the year in Croatia - and learnt a lot of lessons after making many mistakes. I have been trying to do my Yachtmaster theory but have struggled to find the time. Our bags are not yet packed, but the bed is covered in summer clothing. We have fishing rods, binoculars, sailing gloves, tickets and passports. We have a local SIM card (thanks Lyn) so you can contact us in many ways.
Most people we have told about the trip think we're a little crazy .. especially if they have heard stories of our last voyage. But we're excited, and looking forward to a great adventure. We're going to try and keep a daily log on this site .. if you're following us don't see anything here .. well there is an emergency number to call! All encouragement is welcome.
