Here we are, our first day at sea.  We’re on midnight to 4:00 a.m. watch, all the sails set and about a ¾ moon lighting our path under a planetarium of stars.  We are just passing St. Kitts headed NW.

Today was filled with a lot of training, rope work, etc.  Dave and Vicky have been spoiling us with delicious food and all the plans for diets have been thrown overboard.

We plan to be at sea for another night before reaching our first stop.

Aft Port – Ruth, Tom, Stretch, Johnny, Pam, and Joan.

The crew joined lord Nelson having made their way to Antigua, some flew out a few days early so that they could enjoy the island before joining. We left the dockside at midday yesterday and then anchored in Falmouth harbour to do hands aloft and bracing drill we raised the anchor before dinner and set sail heading towards Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.
