Talking Who's Leaving this winter??

Who all is leaving this winter for either the Bahamas/Carribean and/or the Sth Pacific next year....we are planning on leaving NC sometime in Dec heading to the Bahamas to sleep for a while (first long vacation in 15yrs!!!) then to the Carribe and on through the Canal next year to be in NZ (HOME!!!!!!!!!! again first time home in 15yrs!!) by late Novembernext year.....so we were wondering if there's anyone else on this Forum who might be doing any of those places along the way...maybe we could meet up or whatever..........Our boat is a Stevens 47 named Arielle with a dark blue hull and gold stripe...Say Hi if you see us anywhere!!!!

We'll be out late November but we'll be starting from Fernandina Beach. Down to Miami and then across to Nassau. From Nassau, the Exumas , Jumentos and other spots. Beneteau 393 "Breathless". If you see us come over for a cool one.

We depart mid November and depending on weather will either go inside slowly to FL then Bahamas and maybe as far south as DR. Better weather, outside and more time in paradise.

We will be looking for you.

Anyone who's going inside down the east coast of Florida, stop in and see me at mile marker 99 ( 20 miles south of Cape Canaveral), and I'll buy the beers.

Rick,

I might stop in but are you sure it's mm 99? Should be well over a thousand down there, or is it at G99. I'll have a bud.

We'll be heading south from Annapolis a week or so from now. Will stop in New Bern for the GAM, then work our way to FL and cross. Plan to head to the Berry,s, Exumas and Christmas in Georgetown. Keep an eye (or ear) out for us.

We plan on leaving the second week in November. Florida to start with, then take a left or a right, depending on how we feel at the time.

Is that the Diamon 99 Marina? South of the Au Galley Causeway? I know it well but didn't know they has space for cats!!!

We are leaving Annapolis Nov. for the Bahamas. Might jump from Beaufort NC to accross the stream and slid into Abacos to see friends then thinking beating down to Mayaguana with a stop in San Salv. on the way. Then spend the winter easing back home. That is... if the weather cooperates but hate to miss a free beer in FL with Rick.

I was considering the same thing, but only received negative comments on the route when I asked for opinions. Have you made this jump before and what was your experience in doing so?

S. Pac next year

We will be heading to Mexico in Dec 2008. In February or March 2009 We will be heading to the Marquesas. We should be in French Polynesia for the following three months. Then on to who knows where.

We are onboard a 33' Cat named Aita Pe'ape'a based out of Long Beach, Ca
