We'll continue to watch when you return heading for T & C The diving and snorkling is great there.
Being back in Ontario isnt the greatest for weather right now!
Hope to see you this summer at the Lodge for the wedding.

Default Weather Router

I just hired a firm called Weather Routing, Inc. They employ professional meterologists and will watch for a weather window for me and will plot my route. I will get regular updates sent to my Blackberry and will get several days notice to get down to Great Exuma to continue to T&C. Now that's cool and takes some stress away from me.

Bob,

Great writeup of your trip so far! My dad and I plan to attend the BVI pokerrun as well. Could I contact you by email? We are in P.R., so you'll pass by here on your way to the event.

Regards,
Julian

Hello Julian. My e mail is bobthebuilder(at)rogers.blackberry.net or bobbarnhart1(at)gmail.com and cell is 239-776-0481. I hope it works out that we can meet. I have serious doubts about making it all the way to BVI at this time of year but we will assess it once in the T & Caicos. We may just spend some time in T & C and make our way back. If this Weather Router thing works out, it may be possible to go all the way.
Bob

Last ones:

1 & 2) Beach Inn, Georgetown, Exumas. I highly recommend this place. Treated us like rock stars.

3 & 4) February Point Marina where we secured PREDATOR before flying out

5) Sailboats arriving on a small ship for Regatta Week. We got out of town just in time to let the sailors do their thing.

To be continued late next week by the looks of it.

Hey, Tom. That Hans fella has friends everywhere. And again, thanks for lending me your satellite telephone for the trip. You will be happy to know it is safely up here in Canada with me right now. Glad we have not had to use it so far.
