Just a quick update on the Picaroon — Philip has found a crew to take her to the BVIs, where she’ll be hauled, tied down for hurricane season and put on the market. The crew is a young German cruising couple with experience of heavy boats who are basically doing the trip in return for a bunch of gear they needed, and we needed to get rid of anyway, so WIN all around.
Philip flies from Puerto Rico on Wednesday morning and arrives here in BKK close to midnight on Thursday. I. Can. Not. Wait.
Oh, and I turn 40 tomorrow. Not a bad (late) birthday present for me!!
