Onward to Hilton Head, SC

November 15, 2018 Nobody likes getting up at 1:30a, heck, some people are usually just going to bed at that time, but in our case, getting up at that hour was making me feel pretty excited. I was feeling confident and ready for our first […]

Cape Hatteras to Charleston

November 1, 2018 Our crew, Bruce Rich, arrived around 3p on October 29th to get settled in and start learning the boat. I ended up working until the last possible minute and at 4:30p told my colleagues that I needed to jump off the call […]

Getting in ‘ship shape’

August 31, 2018 In the last post, we shared the journey north from Florida aboard our new Lagoon, arriving early Saturday exhausted and exhilarated after a very successful sail. Understandably, we took most of that weekend off to sleep, do laundry, and plan the move […]
