Gareth's 40th Birthday

Gosh planes are fast, it took us 8 months to get from Chesapeake Bay to Trinidad and 5 hours to get back to NYC!

A long weekend in New York to celebrate Gareth's 40th, lots of food, beer, Leicester City paraphenalia and banter made for a fabulous time.

From here Linda flies to Canada, while I go to the UK and we change from 24/7 in a 51' boat to different continents for 3 weeks - it will be strange!

Aground In Trinidad

Chaguaramas Bay, Trinidad
10 40.6N 61 38.3W

We arrived in Trinidad earlier this week after an uneventful night sail, and dropped anchor in Chaguaramas Bay, Trinidad. Trinidad will be our home for hurricane season, while we do some maintenance and keep our insurance company happy, but our first job is to slip the boat as we are heading home for a month.

It's always scary to see your home suspended 6 feet off the ground, but Peakes Yard did a great job and we were soon spending a sweaty few days getting ready for our trip and starting the haul out work.
