I bought four Budweisers to celebrate the halfway point.  It’s the first time I’ve seen Bud since being in Europe.  Of course we are in the Canaries, so it’s a little different.  The trip looks like it will be slow.  There is a lot of light air forecast, and we are going to have to sail way out of the way to get any pressure.  Near the Cape Verdes I think.  The trip down was easy and we did the 700 miles in 3.5 days in strong downwind conditions.  Now that’s over though.  Anyway, we’ve got to cast off, so, bbfn and I’ll write again in St. Thomas. 



I’m leaving to bring my Dad’s boat to St. Thomas today.  I’m back in Spain with my Dad, Phil and Tom.  You don’t know these people, but they all be good.

I spent the last two weeks in Paris studying French and this is what I learned:


It was nice staying in Paris.  I walked around a lot.  Until I couldn’t anymore, actually.  Fortunately I had a new pair of shoes from Columbia which were extremely comfortable compared to the old Crocs I was threatening to sport in Paris.  I visited some interesting cemetaries and found one that I found particularly great:


Well, I gotta go fuel up the boat. 

First stop is the Canaries.  Looks like there will be a lot of wind on that little leg.  Update from there.
