Great! We always keep a lookout for the pretty boats,- leaky or not. We're in Florida and not heading back to New England until april. We enjoy many great ports to visit en route. Are you guys taking a big passage or poking about?

I sure would. We have CF members everyplace! You just don't want all of them showing up at the same time.

Captforce first trip south for us plan to do Bahamars this season and don't know if we will continue heading south down island or return to the southern states next summer pn real plans see where it goes

Geocay Were leaving just outside Boston Harbor hopeful to head out some time next week and slowly head down, probably stay in New Port a couple days have to get some work done on the ssb, then depending on weather go outside and try to get to norfork then head up the chessy for a while before continuing down to Fla both inside and out. Will keep an eye out for you

Hi Dennis,

After spending the last two years in New England (E. Greenwich, RI), we are also heading South utlimate destination Tortola, BVI but if we don't make it that far we don't mind.

We are heading along the LI sound now, Manhattan early next week.

Give us a call if you hear us on the VHF.

Where are you now ?

Hi Dennis and Carole,

We'll be in the Bahamas again this winter. We won't cross till Dec/Jan as we don't start until late November but starting from North Florida give us a bit of a jump on most of the folks heading south from the Northeast. If you spot "Breathless" give us a shout and we will keep an eye out for you.
