With the deadline of the Slocum centennial approaching, our trip to the Atlantics western side passed all too quickly. Our landfall in Natal, Brazil, broke this spell that had taken us, it seemed, out of time and place. In Trin-idad, we found boatyard rates are now no lower than in the States. After that it was Culebra, Briacs favorite island, and pleased we were to be there again. The horses were still on the beach at Isla Palomino, and in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, we reprovisioned. Waiting for us there was a letter from Ted Jones, commodore of the Slocum Society, fixing details for the celebrations in Fairhaven, Massachusetts.
