    Sailing to Maine. Outside Route

    Great photo!
  2. I'm sorry to see you take you take this tack Ajax, you seemed like one of the more moderate, less hateful people here. Guess I was wrong, maybe you'll go sailing some day and your horizons will open. Disappointing.
  3. Dylan, would you say what is being said face to face? Most of the posters here seem like pretty good guys but this thread is not right. I'm disappointed that people I like here on this website make these very offensive comments.
  4. If they're boring, don't watch. I find it offensive that a cruising group is so hateful to a cute couple with baby. I would like to invite anyone to say to their face what they say here on line. I'm sitting in an anchorage with many couples with young children, the woman wear bikinis. It would be interesting to see someone say what they say here. I would guess someone would get punched in the face.

  6. I suspect they do multiple times more sailing than you do?

    Post-covid Cruising?

    Do you drive a car? When behind the wheel we put ourselves and others at risk but we still drive. This whole thing is overblown and there are real consequences to stripping rights and livelihoods from people.
  8. Hard to believe a pretty girl in a bikini is so offensive to so many. What a bunch of gay fucks you perverts are.

    Post-covid Cruising?

    I understand everyone fears but you still have to live your life. Down here in the USVI's the beaches are full, provisions are readily available and the restaurants are offering take out. I wouldn't want to be in a restrictive state, when we return, if the state has onerous restrictions we'll move on.

    Probably not. There's a second low that would meet us as we enter the gulf stream on the 27th. A 30 knot NE breeze in that spot doesn't seem like it would be as much fun as waiting a couple more days while anchored in Magen's Bay. We'll watch and make a decision on the 20th. We're retired so have no schedule.

    We're at Yacht Haven Charlotte Amalie for final provisioning, I can see Paralax in the harbor. He probably had to come here for repair, can't imagine there is any repair shops in Culebra. Cool looking boat.

    Didn't know about Parallax, bummer that they had an issue. They were one of the few boats we chatted with on the way down. The conversation was how far East do we go to find the trade winds. We went to 59 w, I then they went further then we did.

    Supplies are abundant in the USVI'S, there are no tourists here. The pipeline was filled long ago to accommodate them. We plan on leaving the 20th plus or minus for Charleston. We're not worried about Arthur, it is moving north, it's more of a problem for those that left on the tenth. I hope they are watching, it looks like some are, a few are making left hand turns to avoid it. Since 2012, May has seen hurricanes every year but one. We, like many others, need to be out of the box by July 1st. Many of us are staged on St Thomas for final provisioning and preparations. We're looking forward to the sail and hope it's a quick and easy passage. Things are good here, it's a great community and the USVI's have been accommodating.

    Quetzel is at the dock having dinner with friends, not sure where Sea Ya is but probably ashore somewhere now.

    There are a few staying. They plan on sailing south as hurricanes approach then return back to the USVI's when it's clear. I'm not aware of anyone getting booted out.
