Have you been to see ZTC? Have you been to see ZTC? Rebecca and I hadn’t been in Grenada for 24 hours and people were asking if we had been to the boat yard. Well, we can now finally say, yes, we made a quick drive-by visit to say hello to our baby, ZTC. I am very happy to report that on first inspection she looks good and for that we are thankful. We are thankful to Grenada Marine but also to some of our friends for checking up on her in our absence.

Earlier in the year we put out a call to the Grenada cruisers to ask if anyone would be willing to make a trip to the yard to give our boat a once over and make sure that the wet cell batteries were topped up. Our friends Deana and Troy from Storyville were quick to respond. They gave us a detailed report, sending us pics and letting us know everything that they did to make sure she was OK. Awesome!

Just recently we put out another request and this time it was our friends Chris and Chrystal from LTD Sailing who responded. As it turns out, they actually made three separate trips to the boat to look after the batteries and give ZTC some TLC. Isn’t that cool of them? We sure think so!

Chris and Chrystal are a couple that some of our ZTC readers should know, especially those looking to follow in our footsteps (wake). They run a great sailing school here in the Grenadines and offer ASA certification through their courses. In fact, one of our “famous” travel friends, Patrick, just wrote about his recent experience sailing with them. Was is a positive experience? You bet!

If this kind of a sailing “vacation” appeals to you, check out this special that Chris and Chrystal are running: $150.00 off their already low off-season rates for a December 7-13 OR December 14-20 course. Learning to sail in the Grenadines in December… what a great early Christmas present! Coincidentally, Rebecca and I took our first sailing lessons over the Christmas holidays.

And of course Chris and Chrystal are hashers too.
