Would anybody else on the Shanty be considering a week on Vela next spring? Right now I'm thinking April but won't know for sure until I call IWJ. Vela's been calling my name so it's getting time to heed the call & get me nekkid feet back on her deck.

We're thinking on it, too. We were supposed to get onboard Vela today, but Irma made us re-think that, and we postponed. Which leaves me saying many prayers for everyone in her path: she is considered to be very dangerous and very unpredictable. So it looks like next spring for us, too.

Railmon, just returned from your state earlier this week. Never been there before, but totally enjoyed our visit. We were there for Jeff's Navy aviation buddies' reunion, and we spent most of our time in Dayton. Amazing place and so much aviation history. As well as that incredible Packard museum. Never got north to the RnR Hall of Fame, so another trip is to be had.

Ahoy, Mike! I'd love to sail Vela again... especially out of St. Lucia!

Would you consider the Captain's Special May 20 - June 1? I'll contact Silver Surfer and Kim to see if they're interested.

Prayers for all mates and friends in the path of Irma...

Cheers,
Jim

Avast Jim, late May is a bit busy for me but you never know! ;-) A mini-reunion would be fun.
Looks like it's going to be a while before many places hit by Irma will be getting back to normal but the last I knew Jose seems to be less of a threat.

I done dood it!!! This past week I reserved a spot for the week of 4/15/18. I tried to get a standard cabin but since a cadet cabin was still available I had to take that even though I told them I am willing to share a cabin. (Dammit!) I'll have to bug them about a bigger cabin if there are any available early April. Because there are only two cadet cabins on Vela, there's a 50/50 chance I'll get the same one I had in April 2016.
Let the countdown begin.
