Sailing the Windward Islands - April 2005

Admiring the Twin Pitons

Prologue

Id met Bill Reid a couple of years ago and wed 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 BVIs. Bill had been soloing her down the leeward islands and this was the first chance for Lynn Sylvain and I to get aboard.
