It's been a while since our last post; with not much going on, with not much to report, we've been quiet. Life on the beach at Jupiter is cheerful.
But, after many dollars and much work done aboard Istaboa, it's now time to bust some kinda move.
So here we are at Old Port Cove, docked right in the middle of a pod of Nordhavns all bent on going the distance. The convoy's plan is to cross to Bermuda, approximately a 5 day run, where some will hangout for a month or so and experience the America's Cup races before pointing northwest toward Nova Scotia, the others are heading on to The Azores and then the Mediterranean. A relatively monumental plan and what these boats are made to do. http://www.nordhavn.com/news/newsletter/april_2017/nap.php
It's fun watching all the crews prepare for this significant passage. On the docks at OPC, the vibe of anticipation is thick.
Were off to visit friends in the Bahamas, then after a run through the islands, we may point north to see what that brings. We still have an open invitation to visit Nantucket Boat Basin and we've yet to cruise that area — so....
Lots of provisioning being done along with the last bits of mechanical and electronic preparation; all keeping us busy. It's been a while since we've seen the Exumas and we're looking forward to slipping back into the island daze we've always enjoyed.
After that? TBD
