WWS meet-up BVI’s

Guess who going to the WWS meet-up in the BVIs in May!!! ME ME ME!! WWS stands for Women Who Sail. So far the group will have 13 sailboats all filled with women from all over the world learning to sail from one another. I will be on a 48′ Oceanis monohull with Captain Angie, an amazing woman who teaches out of Annapolis, Maryland. Thanks Holly Scott and KC Matlock from Mahalo Sailing for putting this adventure together!!

Playing With Our Dinghy

We decided we needed to make sure our dinghy was good to go before our cruise, we leave on Thursday, and find a place with a dinghy dock for dinner tonight. Our little dinghy has a lot of get up and go and got us over to Fish Tales where we enjoyed fish and beer during happy hour!!  We even got compliments on our little dinghy’s new chaps, although along the way we lost one set of the registration numbers that I made for the bow of the dinghy!! SH*T! I knew I should have sewed them on instead of depending on Velcro!! Oh well, we still had a beautiful evening on Tampa Bay…

New Chaps

Our little dinghy has a new sun dress, otherwise called dinghy chaps. We wanted to protect our investment and cover the dinghy.

Note to self… Putting the chaps on while the dinghy is in the water is not wise unless you want to go into the drink!!

Hallmark Holiday

Since moving into the boat we can’t bring anything onto the boat without getting rid of something so going forward I am sure I will get boat stuff for Hallmark events like today.   But today Henry gave me this amazing handmade wooden fishhook necklace. It says it will provide “good luck and safety when traveling over water”. Perfect gift as we begin our new adveture living aboard and sailing to new amazing places. He did good!!

Morning Marina Walk

I thought this was great and was created by another WWS member!  As you may know, marine heads (toliets) must be pumped out much like an RV, so boaters tyipcally use the bathroom somewhere other than on their boat.  Our marina has great very clean bathrooms with showers and there are lines in the morning.
