Happy Holidays from Paradise Connections Yacht Charters

Happy Holidays!

Sorry that we haven't posted anything so far this month.  At the end of November, something happened after a power failure with the hotspot we were using in Long Bay, St Thomas. We were able to send & receive email fortunately, but we couldn't access the internet. We thought we would catch up on blogs when we reached Antigua.

The Antigua Charter Yacht Show started on December 7th this year and we were really looking forward to it, as well as the sail from St. Thomas to Antigua. On the Sunday morning, shortly before dawn, we were dismasted which is a pretty major happening on a sailboat. Won't bore you with the details, but we safely motored in to Christiansted, St Croix Monday morning. Very happy with our Electric Yacht electric motor!

We have excellent wifi service on the boat and Paradise Connections is fully up and running. I admit to doing minimal work upon our arrival (though still giving full service to our clients, of course) as we have been busy making adjustments and planning on building a new rig & sails plus all the other things that are going on :)

Stuff happens and you just have to go with the flow.  We've been toying with the idea of changing to a Junk Rig and now we have the opportunity to do so.

So, in the next few days we'll be back up to speed with interesting bits and pieces about barging and various hotel barges.

But in the meantime, we'd like to remind you that Roi Soleil offers a 5% discount if you book by 31 December 2009. See previous post for details.

Yes, Life is Good...

We'd like to wish everyone a happy holiday season.
