What was new for this year? Sleep aboard the night before, early start on day one, snorkeling Cistern Point, diving The Chimney, taking a slip at Leverick, eating dinner aboard at Anegada, and snorkeling Monkey Point. The clear favorite was snorkeling Monkey Point. Everyone loved it!

And one more point of interest. I like to walk the Moorings docks looking for old boats. This week I saw all my old Moorings boats: Moon Shadow (Crew, 2004), Brahma Fear (Crew, 2006), and A Stray Shower (Captain, 2007). It was like seeing old friends. Moon Shadow was in the Footloose fleet, but seemed to be holding up well. The owner of A Stray Shower was on board and I got to meet him. Nice guy.

Anyway, we’re already hatching plans for our next trip. Stay tuned to this site for more info as we settle on a date and maybe even a different place.
