Cruising around on Catamarans
In the trying weeks between Black Friday and Santa’s ballyhooed visit, where else would you want to be but in the Caribbean and sailing?
Lawrence, a public-health physician and professor from Winnipeg, and Jim, a retired mechanical engineer from Sandusky, Ohio, each possessed some nautical know-how, yet both seemed content enough to let Steve take the reins while they took orders. They praised the inclusive nature of the flotilla. “The nice thing about these trips is that they’re single friendly,” Lawrence says, “which is great if you can’t get a group together or if your plans fall through.
“Before this trip,” Lawrence says with a laugh, the three of them had “sailed together only by phone.”
Steve gave the best signal of all about onboard morale on the last night, at a lively farewell dinner party we hosted aboard our charter boat, Jack Sparrow, a Lagoon 500, while moored at The Bight, at Norman Island.
“We’re the three Tonys from Tony,” he declares. “This is my brother Tony, and this is my brother Tony.” The crowd ate it up, and so ended another memorable sailing flotilla in paradise.
