The time has come and tomorrow, Sat. Dec 1st we shove off for the Caribbean. Jaywalker is fueled, provisioned and Judy and I are ready to go.
We are sitting a little low in the water due to our fuel and water load which will lighten as the days progress.
While we've been here for this short time in La Gomera we have enjoyed the company of our good friend, Denny Morgan on Jubilant. He will be crossing about Jan 1st.
Also in the next day or so, a rowing challenge from Here to Antigua is set to start. There are about 18 boats, with anywhere from single handers, double handers and a couple of 4 man crews. Even two boats with only women rowing. The quickest will probably take 49-50 days and some will be out for twice that long. This is a once every two years event. For me, once in a lifetime would be once to often.
This is a one man boat, the other person is for photos.
One last look at La Gomera which is a small city on one of the smaller islands, but throughly charming and a great place to come to visit.
More later from the high seas.
