I made Carina ready for the approaching Irene this afternoon. Doubled all lines, added an additional spring line, removed all canvas and stowed all items that could come loose. Hopefully she rides the storm out with no issue.
I have gotten the opportunity to participate in a circumnavigation of the DELMARVA Peninsula as a crew member on a 35' Beneteau. Scheduled to meet with the rest of the crew and skipper on Sunday August 21st for a meet and greet along with some preliminary sailing exercises. Barring any unforeseen issues, the cruise should start on September 9th through the 16th. We will be leaving out of Selby on the Bay. The overall trip is about 400 nautical miles +/- and once in the ocean we will be going non stop until we enter the Bay once more.
Looking forward to the adventure and will post how it went along with pictures after we get back.
