I’d met Bill Reid a couple of years ago and we’d had two fine sails so far. The north coast of Cuba in February 2004 and across the Atlantic, the Bermuda to the Azores leg for myself, in June 2004. Bill was crossing to sell Konstancz, his Nauticat 33 in Europe and we discussed buying a boat together when he got back.
By Christmas we had purchased a Jeanneau Lagoon 37 catamaran out of charter in the BVI’s. Bill had been soloing her down the leeward islands and this was the first chance for Lynn Sylvain and I to get aboard.

Bill and Chispa will be hanging out on the Venezuelan coast this summer. Next December we’ll be heading north to Cuba, either westerly through the ABC islands or easterly up the Windward and Leeward chains.
Let us know if you’d like to join us. Should be fun!
