Alex Lowering The Dinghy

Cayman to Key West

Apr 09 2014

On Sunday, we set sail from Grand Cayman!  Weather was awesome, partly cloudy with a 17 knot breeze from the east; on a broad reach all day.  Among the excitement was Shanley cleaning the poop deck three times.  We gained a new visitor, “Rusty” the cormorant, and well, he decided to relieve himself on Shanley among other things while she was driving.  As of night fall it looked like Rusty was bunking down for the night.  We’ve had great meals so far including a tasty pasta creation from Tom.  Our youngest sailer, Alexandra (15) is really jumping into things, including lifting a 500 lb dingy all by herself.
