I’ve Got New Hardware On Board

Nope S/V Sweet Escape doesn’t have the hardware one of her crew does. My little slip and fall on our vacation sailing adventure turned out to be a little more serious than the Key West ER Doctor originally thought. I had surgery 2 weeks ago and I am finally up and slowly getting around.

It’s finally the perfect sailing weather but unfortunately my doctor says I won’t be in any shape to help sail our vessel for about 6 months. Needless to say the challenges of living on the boat with an injured limb will continue for just as many months.

Sailing and Injuries

Limb injuries don’t go well with sailing. A slip and fall and I ended up with two fractures on my fibula, at my ankle and up towards my knee. Our sailboat has so many steps and thresholds that makes it incredibly hard to get around. Until these injuries heal it will be an adventure moving around and getting on and off the boat! Not an adventure I want to repeat again!!
