Last sail for this season and with the nephews – Charlie, Girlfriend Kristy, Kyle and Garrett. A really fun crew and as luck has it, the boys met up with a great twenty-year old British sailor that “fit” into our crew. to monitor this group, Ken and Steve were on the crew. Half-way to Grenada, the Grateful Red made another stop at Union Island – the party island – for Charlie’s 21st Birthday
After the party blues with Fred, Colby from Key West and Ken, the Grateful Red headed South on the leeward side of the Caribbean, Saba, St. Augustine Island, St. Kitt, Nevis, Montserrat, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique and Rodney Bay again in St. Lucia. Lots of stories, ports, anchoring issues, hiking, exploring and conversation with this crew, but mission of return to St. Martin was accomplished.
Les Voiles de St. Barth Regatta is a big time, well at least lots of really big racing yachts and…the Grateful Red. Wendell, Matt, Lilly, Ken and Kristine had the Grateful Red in racing form – around the island a couple of times, a couple of off-shore races and pretty light winds made a great regatta topped off by a well-attended Grateful Red blender bash!
See you on the Water
