|North Sound, Virgin Gorda, BVI|
The weeks flew by and it is already time to leave the Caribbean. We spent lots of time in the Virgins, a month in St. Martin, and a few days in St. Barth. As usual, everything was beautiful and serene. We are looking forward to getting up to Bermuda, one of our favorite places. Bermuda is the host of the America’s Cup this year, so we expect that things will be even more colorful than usual.
We are leaving this week and sailing 900 miles which should take 7 to 9 days. If you are interested in tracking us, there are a couple of options:
- As usual we have Chuck’s spot tracking us at this link (7day track).
- The Salty Dawgs have a tracking page. Either enter “Rockhopper" under Name to track us, or enter “SDR” under Group to see the whole Salty Dawg Rally. Update the dates, using a start date of May 15, and hit View Map.
We expect to stay in Bermuda about a month and then head to Canada at the end of June or early July. We’ll make our way into the northeast US and spend August and September in Maine-Rhode Island. I expect we’ll be in Annapolis for the boat show in October. We are still trying to make up our minds if we are staying in the US for the winter, or bringing Rockhopper back to the Caribbean. Whether we stay in the US or head back to the Caribbean, I feel a US road trip coming up this year.
