on the move

Progress on the new dinghy has been slow. i did a little racing this past weekend at the BVI Spring Regatta, where i chanced into a crew with Dave, the sailmaker from Quantum Sails. He’s keen to check out my dinghy and build some special sails.
i’m trying to get a little ahead at work, in anticipation of my upcoming vacation. Yup, i’m off to race at Antigua Classic Week. Two weeks of pure sailing! Well, the regatta itself is only one week, of course, but then there’s the sailing to/from Antigua, with a little island-hopping along the way. We’ll be quite a little West Endian flotilla down there, too; Lydia, Simba, and Ruffian all racing, and End Of The Day and Sea Quill mothershipping. Al & Mitzi’s cavernous Formosa Ketch ought to be the scene of some fine late night cut ups!
A new friend from Vancouver is coming down to join us. Jenn is in for a treat! Antigua is one hell of a way to take a speculative look into full-time crew work. i’ve already had one other friend come down from Vancouver for work; i’m hoping to slowly get all my friends down here…
