We know the ship is sold out for our week. Anyone out there reading this joining us on our week? We're first timers doing this so want any helpful information from anyone who has experienced this adventure before. Thanks! Beach Girl

We're onboard with you. This will be my first time and Herb's 7th time on a Windjammer type cruise. We're from Virginia, what about you?

Hey Heidi where in VA are you? We're in Crozet right outside of Charlottesville.

We're in Tappahannock. Small world, huh? We're flying from Richmond to Miami on the 28th. Trying to find a place to stay on the 28th and 29th. How about you?

We fly out of Richmond also, and do the Park and Fly at the Best Western Plus Richmond Airport Hotel 804-222-8200. You can leave your car at the hotel; they will take you to the airport, and you call them when you get back in and they'll pick you up. We stay the night before we fly out at 7:55 am but drive home when we get back in. It's a lot easier flying out of Richmond than Dulles!! For the long layover in Miami I get a 30 day Admiral's Club pass for $99 and it allows you to take in 2 guests. A good deal as you can use it coming and going! We stay at the Allamanda Beach Resort on Grand Anse Beach; nothing fancy just 2 star but it is clean; has a pool; great location on the beach; close to about 10 restaurants, ATMs and bus stop. If you stay at the Allamanda, after you check in to the hotel you can go across the street to the "Wall Street" vendors and get something to eat and drink as the hotel restaurant is usually closed. We usually get a fresh grilled fish sandwich and a beer and take it back to our room to eat. The vendors will have local food and drink.

It's been so cold up until last week that I haven't even thought about getting things together and what to bring until this weekend. Let me know how your trip goes. Have a great sail!

Patel the previous posts were from 2014 but we'll be sailing May 8-20. We live in Crozet, VA and have sailed IWJ 11 weeks. So where in VA are you??

I am also with you in VA in the Hampton Roads/Tidewater/Coastal Virginia area. I too have done many trips with IWJ and think you will enjoy yourselves.
