Hi guys! No, we’re not dead, we just spent the weekend at Tobago Race Week. Jason and I that is. John stayed behind and cracked the whip, and it seems Kijro is almost ready! We owe you all kinds of details on lots of events, so as a quick teaser, I’ll let you know what’s been up:
- Carnival Tuesday
- Passage to Tobago (aka Lara Can’t Hang)
- Race Week
- Limin’ in Tobago
- Manta Ray Sighting!
- Sushi Breakfast (aka Jellyfish Sea or Jason’s Passage from Hell)
I realize we owe some info on each of these, so in the next couple of days, as we scramble to put the finishing touches on Kijro, I’ll make an effort to fill in the blanks. Right now, I’m going to join the cruisers at TTSA for the weekly cruiser potluck and barbecue.
Until next time!

Glad you’re alive and cramming in so much before you sail. You won some ADDY awards while you were away…
Tell me more!
I’m excited to hear about everything, including your ADDY awards!
Definitely waiting for more info. but thanks for some brief news. Hope you had fun with the J-24 crews in Tabago. Jason probably needed a J-24 “fix” after the long withdrawal from the crews here in Jax. Also should have helped to prepare you for what lies ahead. Did you get my email about the South Pacific crew that had to sail through floating sand from a new underwater volcano?
Yes we did get the email! Pretty unbelievable. I’ll see if Jason has some time today to fill everyone in on the racing. He’s working on some final boat fixes (reseating 2 stanchions damaged when the boat was taken out of the water last summer, fitting the mast boot so we have no leaks, installing the Pactor modem on the SSB). If he doesn’t have time, I’ll go ahead and write a bit.
Sooooo good to hear your voice and ‘grats on the ADDYs – you’re gone but not forgotten. Glad Jason was recovered enough for the BBQ. I know he needed it. That trip can serve as a living reminder of what it would be like to run out of provisions, so hope you really laid on at the Price Mart today.
What sand volcano? Pete, are you trying to add to my nightmares or what?
Can’t wait to get all the details from your trip to Tobago for the races. The Jellyfish Sea adventure definitely has my interest piqued. 🙂
Hey Guys! Has Jason been sick? I hope all is well now at least. I was wishing I could call a few days ago, but made it through on my own, guess I better get used to that! Can’t wait to read the details about your teaser Lara! Hugs and Kisses!!
No he hasn’t been sick. He just had a really rough passage back from Tobago. No food on the boat, and 10 hours of grueling equatorial sun, while trimming sails! I’ll let him tell the full story on that one though. He says he’s going to write tonight.
