June has slipped by so quickly and we are making steady progress toward our goal of living aboard. Kay is officially retired, the container is safely placed at Paul’s homestead in Westford, VT, and the owners of our rental, Stan and Liz, are making progress back from their sailing adventure toward home.
There are medical matters to get squared away (medications, immunizations, etc.), a few loose ends with insurance, and finishing our packing. All should be completed by the end of July.
We are finishing up a few repairs on the boat (main furler rebuild, some electrical issues and head repairs) but that should all be squared away by the end of the week. Kay and I should be ready to move full time to Atalanta by mid August and depart New England waters by the beginning of September.
In the meanwhile, we are hoping to get some great sailing in with friends in some of the most beautiful sailing grounds on the east coast. This weekend Tara and Chad will join us. For the fourth, we are looking forward to joining Blue Moon for a long weekend celebration.
More to come.
