OK, we’ve had a crazy busy couple of days. The 18 inquiries that I mentioned yesterday has now grown to 30! We are truly humbled by the response. Thank you, everyone!
We spent most of yesterday trying to pull together a plan to make this all happen, and I think we’re almost there. Because of the positive comments from many of the prospective guests, we have decided to simply create a new Paypal account to process the transactions. Unfortunately, right after doing so, Paypal decided to lock that new account, pending confirmation that we are real people. Trying to prove residency when I haven’t been back to Canada since 2010 is a bit of a challenge.
“You want to see a utility bill with my name on it?”
“Are you kidding?”
Anyway, I think I have it worked out.
If you’ve contacted us and responded positively, we’ll send you the details on how you can secure one of the spots. Obviously we can’t accept all 30 so unfortunately, it’ll have to be on a first come, first served basis. We will send the registration links first to the people who definitely told us “we’re in!”
For record, we do appreciate everyone’s support. Truly!
Multitasking! ZTC’s locker covers… sanding, cleaning, painting. Even though they’re hidden by the salon cushions, we want them to look great.
In other news, we just found out yesterday that our friends Daniel and Beate have their boat at Pto Williams in Chile. That is exactly where we want to sail to! We last saw these guys in Martinique. Beate told me that from there they sailed to Dominica, and then across the Atlantic to the Cape Verde Islands. From there it was back across the Atlantic to the east coast of South America, and then south. These two are amazing!
The following video shows us sailing with them on the south coast of Grenada on their boat Galadriel.
