Even though work has not allowed us to quit and sail off into the sunset…just yet, it has allowed us to charter another big cat in the Caribbean again this year.
Last year over Christmas we charter a Lagoon 440, The Black Pearl with crew, and started posting about it here. We had such a good time that we knew we had to do it again and not wait so long to try and commit as we did last year. So…we just committed to a Lagoon 450 with another couple. It’s the Kindred Soul that we’re chartering through TMM.
Last time we went over Christmas for a week, but this year we’re going from 12-22 December as the rates were much better, and we were fortunate to have access to a 10 day charter.
The couple we’re going with own a MacGregor 26 that they sail around Washington DC area, and we have our RYA Coastal Skipper, so between the two of us we figured we should be brave enough to go without a hired crew this time. Let’s hope the guy checking us out the morning of our charter feels the same way(!)
