We are looking forward to a great adventure. It would be nice to touch base with our shipmates before hand.

Hi Brian & Patti... looks like we're on the same sailing dates :) Apr 10-16, 2016. There's 4 in our group, 2 married couples...George (me) & Wendi and Josh & Jen. Read in another forum your brother Bruce and Norma are joining you. This should be a great week. It's been on Wendi's bucket list for a long time.

We're from Canada (Alberta...out west) and enjoy the outdoors a lot. Bringing our snorkels along and Josh & Wendi gonna try to get a scuba dive in sometime if it works.

looking forward to meeting you guys. We're booked at the Allamanda the night before. You guys?

Alberta sure has a whole lotta sailing folks / jammers! Such fun people I've met on IWJ ships that I'd consider Alberta as a great place to settle (ie: Nov. 2016) if not for those blasted winters/snow/ice whistling

George,

You've got it right. Bruce, Norma, Patti and I will be the other half of this adventure. We're staying in the same hotel and will be flying in Friday night; just wanted a day to kick around and relax.

Patti has noticed that I keep moving her down to smaller boats, cruise ship, then star clipper (300 ft) and now Diamant (100 ft ). The evil plan is to bareboat charter in the BVIs one of these days.

We've never been to any of these island or on any of the windjammer ships. We can't wait to get this party started!

Where in Alberta?? I spent 2 yrs in Edmonton as my husband went to Grad School at the Univ of Alberta. I worked in the OR at the U of A Hospital. Cold, snowy winters but a dry cold. Not as penetrating as the wet cold we get in Virginia. You're going to love Diamant as she is the best.

Brian we're in the big metropolis of Crozet, 18 miles outside of Charlottesville in the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains.

Sandra,
A very beautiful part of the state, and it look like quite a quaint little town.
Jealous, but very happy for you.

Hi all! It looks like we will be joining you that week. It's me (Julie) and my husband Todd. We are also from Northern Virginia. We are coming into Grenada on Wednesday before the cruise to spend a few days exploring the island. We'll be staying at the Radisson. Looking forward to meeting all of you.

No dive certifications among our crew, George, but we are looking forward to some good snorkeling.

We'll gladly mind the bar while those two do their thing.
Not long now....

Hey George! Although we haven't had such a bad winter here in Alberta (I am in Olds) and spring is almost here, I envy your trip on Diamant. I have sailed on her a few times and the Grenadines are spectacular. Maybe you will be safely in the sun for the last big dump of snow which is still bound to come!
Enjoy!
