Tomorrow is the travel day. I had planned to pack early this week, but a last minute wiring job came up and I was swamped with that all week long. Soooo, here I am packing at the last minute for a 1600+nm delivery.
Luckily, I already have everything that I need for this adventure so there was nothing to purchase, the only problem I see is I can’t find my 12v charger for my marine radio handheld. I’m off to storage to dig through bags and boxes in search of it.
I’ve secured a spot on a wonderful boat for nice delivery. Nauti Intentions, a Fountaine Pajot, Elba 45 is a 2003 45′ catamaran and is currently used by a sailing school in Rhode Island for instruction and chartering services during the summer, and they want to use it over the winter in the BVI. That’s where I come in, with a crew of seasoned sailors, we can SAFELY deliver the vessel to the chosen destination.
Looking at the charts, this passage is 1652 nautical miles, I’m estimating ~2000nm with variations for winds and currents. With perfect conditions, this trip could take as little as 9 days, we are planning on ~14 days, and provisioning for ~20 days.
Currently, Hurricane Tammy is playing around in the central Atlantic, we are closely watching her and paying close attention to sea conditions.
