I was supposed to crew up last Saturday, but when I got food poisoning the night before, I was so incapacitated that I missed the boat altogether; I had to spend three extra days in Jax in a hotel room but made the best of it by making time for dinner with a favorite friend on monday, and I even babysat my boss’s adorable baby daughter while he and his wife moved house! It could have been a lot worse. Now I’m with a new crew and I think it will be a great trip. There is a massive low off the North Atlantic coast so we’ll try to avoid the worst of it by taking the old Bahama channel. See you in San Juan.
