The 2014 sailing season is knocking on the door
First I want to thanks everyone for their regards and support with the passing of my dad last week it meant a lot to me as most of you who receive my newsletters are friends.
Second we are back to the program. I know I keep promising warmer weather that just is not coming, but the 2014 sailing season is knocking at the door step. Neither of my boats have been looked at since November, and both need batteries charged, and bottoms painted, things that normally would have been done by now. The Bella Donna needs an inspection, plus some deck work per orders of Tennie Komar, a client who likes the woodwork shiny.
My sailing season will be starting on March 23 as I head down to South Carolina to help another client, John Savage bring his 37ft Etap, Kerr Mor from Beaufort, South Carolina, to Charleston, South Carolina. It is not a very long trip however there will some training involved, as he has also updated his radar and we will have to figure that out. I would like to get him a little more at ease while single handling. We will make our plans based on the weather, if it cooperates we will make the trip on the ocean, maybe checking out the gulf stream, and making the trip in more than the one day that it normally would take. If the weather is not cooperating we will travel the intracoastal waterway either case we will be playing by ear as we arrive in Beaufort.
I will be posting on Facebook each day and will be making active the SPOT for this trip and for the rest of the summer, so keep following my news letters, it might get interesting.
Also think of taking a boating course through the Coast Guard Auxiliary, or through Boatwise, we can cover the stuff you learn during Captain Ed's Sailing classes. Stay warm think spring.

Captain Ed's Sailing gets more popular each year, however there are always great weekends as well as weekdays available.
At the end of the day you walk away from the boat and leave the cost of owning and maintaining the boat up to me.
