Ready to Go East

As Richard recovers from his back going out, we are continuing to prepare for our transition to live aboard.  Activities are both continuing to prepare Atalanta and to pack up the house so that Liz and Stan can move back into their home now that they have returned from their two year sail. 

While most preparations are on the boat, some require one to go aloft.  Fortunately, Kay loves the view and is happy to go up, above, and beyond.  Today’s mast work included checking the spreader boots and repairing a broken flag halyard.  Once back down, Kay was ready for her next adventure.

We are hoping that Richard’s back will be better for our next adventure.  This coming week we are welcoming a friend of ours who spent years sailing with Richard’s father.  Meeting in Bristol and sailing to Newport with Leo will begin our trip east to the Vineyard once again.  We look forward to having Kay’s daughter, Tara and her partner, Chad on board for that leg of our cruise.  After relaxing for a few days on MV,

Kay and Richard will continue east to Marblehead, MA to have Fred Knowles and his mechanics at Hanson Marine work on the engine so that it is in tip top shape for its journey south.

Stay tuned.
