2013 will start out with a splash. I have scheduled a delivery with the owner/captain in May. The boat will be a Beneteau 47.3 2005. Matt will join me and he will add three new countries to his list, St Martin (French and Dutch), British Virgin Islands, and Bermuda. The first leg from St Martin to BVI will be about 75 miles. Then on May 4 we depart for Bermuda for 850 miles.
Skyped with owner on March 27 – boat is safe and seaworthy and has three kinds of electronics onboard, but no radar. Owner has years of experience. He is from Belgium. He will have his sons arrive in Bermuda as they continue in the ARC Europe to the Azores and Portugal.
Checked on Visa requirements – none needed.
Matt’s passport just arrived. Great
Flights are scheduled.
