I finally got a good weather window and departed from Norfolk, VA to the Caribbean and hope to be in the BVI in a week. If anyone is interested, I've got a SPOT tracker set up that shows my progress at SPOT Tracker / SpotWalla map

Since I saw your boat at the boat show in Annapolis, I always tried to do a drive by if you were around when we chartered...

Great news.

Maybe he will find a coffee shop mid Atlantic.

I’m sure he could use a nice latte.

This morning the box that shows his coordinates, speed and heading had a note at the bottom that said he was turning south to avoid a storm that was coming toward him from the west. It looks like he turned due south and then a little bit westward to get out of the bad weather. Later in the day he resumed his course going south southeast.

If you post on the BVI Community Board on FB, Laura will probably reply.

You can see Zanshin docked in Sopor's Hole on the Pusser's webcam. Pretty cool. https://pussers.com/pussers-web-cams/
