OK...all you young people (or older) who have already sailed on Vela...what kind of sound system is on board? I am technology challenged and still listen to CDs and wondering if Vela has a CD player? I would love to bring a some of my favorites (the soundtrack from Carlitos Way and Santana's Supernatural come to mind) for the May 29 sail out of Tortola. I think some dancing on deck after dinner sounds fun!!! Just 4 weeks away from my turn on Vela!

When we sailed in January we played music from people's iPods. I don't recall there being a CD player, but that might just be because we didn't use it.

Although I didn't look too close, I think there might be a CD player as part of the sound system. I don't think it's very hard transferring music to cel phones or MP3 players so why not give that a thought? Besides, CD's take up a lot more space. And Vela does have a nice area near the bow where you can get your happy feet moving.

Hey Texasgirl! I think Alex and I sailed with you on Diamant in Aug/Sept 2014. What a wonderful sail! I see that you will be on Vela very soon. We will be sailing in early August 2016. Wish you were coming with us! Let me know how your trip is. I'm sure it will be fantastic! - Theresa

Hi Theresa! Yes...I remember you and Alex! I agree...that sail out of Grenada was awesome! Loved Diamant and the Grenadines and I will do that trip again in the future! Right now...2 weeks from today and I will be on board Vela! What boat are you sailing in August? Whichever one...I know you will have a wonderful time!
