Hasta la vista George Town

May 29, 2007

Here we go again. Barring surprises, we'll head out of George Town tomorrow morning (Wednesday, May 30) for the first leg of our sail to the Dominican Republic. We'll take a slightly unconventional route, that takes advantage of the wind direction. We'll be heading south east, to the southern tip of Long Island, then continue south east to the tip of Acklins Island where we'll hang a left and go northeast towards Plana Cays and Mayaguana. From there, we'll slog to the east to the Turks and Caicos Islands and finally south to the Dominican Republic. We'll most likely be out of touch for the next two weeks.

Hi Hans and Kristen!
We're dying to know how your plans have unfolded. Last we heard, you and Merengue were considering a closer Long Island anchorage for Wed. night. Are you still buddy boating?
We had some troubles...dying engine and snapped steering cable...and are holed up in Emerald Bay right now. The wind has NOT died down though we're hoping for good weather next week. We've opted to head North, so we won't be seeing you in Luperon. Definitely a down side to our decision!

Take care and safe sailing!

Fair winds and following seas, and a safe passage to Luperon.
