It’s been an intense and challenging few days. Only fours days before the start of the Caribbean 1500 rally to Tortola, BVI, we discovered a fracture in our headstay chainplate. Somewhat important, as it keeps the mast up.
After heroic efforts by the crew, Scott, Jere, Rick and Jim, we have five new chainplates fitted and a well-found boat ready for offshore.
As the sun starts sinking towards the horizon, we chase the fleet, past Navy aircraft carriers and out of the Chesapeake Bay.
We are ready for offshore, and excited for the 1400 mile passage to Tortola in the BVI’s.
