Read more or less?
As yesterday was a “no work, little activity” day, I was able to catch up on reading some of my favorite blogs. Two that I always learn something from are Boat Bits and Sail Delmarva. Drew, the author of the latter blog, also has great taste in boats. He owns a PDQ 32, like our beautiful ZTC which is still waiting for the right owner to sail her away!
Another site that I spent quite a bit of time on yesterday is Attainable Adventure Cruising. You may recall that I mentioned that site the other day in this post. I admit though that while I am learning a lot on that site (you need to purchase a membership to access most of the material), I really think that I need to stop going there quite so much as it kind of freaks me out. Reading their posts makes me realize all of the things that we likely “should” get organized before sailing south, and doing so would almost certainly require me to get a job for another year, a prospect that I am not at all interested in.

Speaking of working, over the past few weeks we have had several people contact us to ask for a charter recommendation in the Virgins. In each case we have been able to put them in contact with friends, people we know personally, who have beautiful boats, and that we know will do an excellent job. Our friends have also offered to reward us with a small commission each time we make such a referral. Yes, that makes it a WIN – WIN – WIN situation! If you or your friends are looking to book a charter in the USVI/BVI, send me a message and I’ll put you in contact with friends of ours who will be able to help you.
