Did you know there are a fair number of quilters who also sail? Last year, I even got to meet one (Harriet) when our paths and boats crossed in the ICW. Small world. Well, I will be going off for a bareboat charter sail again, this time with my friend, Lori and our men to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) once again.
We plan to snorkel:
And drink painkillers:
and, of course, sail. This trip, we are trying out a new boat- as you can see, a catamaran (Sunsail 384):
Also, I get to visit my sister, too, while we are in the Florida area. Life is indeed good!
Plus, there is a chance our next trip in 2011 will be in the Bahamas. Love the Caribbean and white sands beaches. Which reminds me- I shall have to add to my collection this trip:
I promise to have lots of stories to tell you when we get back! Of course, a big “Thank You,” to my friend, Mae, who is babysitting the house and pets!
In case you stumbled across this post, my husband and I love to bareboat charter, which is a term that means we rent a sailboat in exotic locations and sail the boats ourselves. We act as Captain and crew. There are yacht businesses all over the world to charter from, but you do have to prove that you can actually sail.
This trip, we are taking our friends, Larry and Lori, who have never sailed before. We plan to introduce them to sailing in a stunning location and see if they like it.
That’s all for now. I will keep a journal of the trip and a sketch pad to draw what I see. Cheers and fair weather!! Carla
