Here's just a quick update of the last week. Sail, sail, sail. Well that's it. Not much more to say. The weather is great and the winds are good.
Oh I did get to meet Alex Dorsey and his right hand man Darrin a few days ago. We met at Star of Orion and went and had a burger and a coldie. It was nice to finally get our knees under the same table for a while. For those of you that don't know Alex, he's a sailor. A good sailor. He documents his travels and takes the world with him on his adventures. You really need to go up and check out his site. Just go to Project Blue Sphere
, that's http://www.ProjectBlueSphere.com
, and join the site. It's free, but if you get anything out of it, which I can't believe you won't, there's a donate button. Just click it and shoot him a couple bucks for his efforts. "Couple bucks, is a loose term. Help support what he is doing and you'll be better off for it.
I highly recommend you to pick up his DVD's. Sure volume 1 is great, but you really need to pick up volume 2 at the same time. You'll be glad you did. It is an adventure you really don't want to miss. Go sailing with Alex right from the comfort of your own home. Then sell the house and buy a boat and go sailing. Now that's what I'm talking about.
Anyway, back to sailing in Fort Myers Beach Florida… As I said above, conditions are wonderful. I've had successful sail after successful sail this week. People are happy and the dolphins are jumpin'. Here's a shot of how nice it was out there today.
We were off shore a couple of miles around Lovers Key and the water out there reminded me of the Bahamas. That nice blue and the foam was white and the water was clear. If I didn't have a charter onboard, I think I would have just kept on going somewhere. It doesn't matter where, just somewhere. Or maybe nowhere. It was just that nice. I'm heading back to that spot again tomorrow. Join me? Sure, why not. Just give me a call.
I shot some short video of the sail out there, I'll put it together and put it up on YouTube so you can see just how nice it is.
Sailboat charters in Fort Myers
seem to be doing well. I'm a blessed man to have my office onboard Star of Orion and get to meet some great people everyday. Also, Sunset Sails
are very nice this time of year. Here's where we went today.
It was off of Lovers Key and the conditions were great. Winds were about 15 to 20 and the seas were just 2 to 3 rollies. Star of Orion clipped along at about 6+ knots and we just sailed.
Well I have to get out of here for now, there's some things brewing that I'll let you in on as they progress. I love sailing everyday, but the paper work is backing up and I have to do the duties, if you know what I mean.
So take care of each other. That's important. Travel safe and I'm looking forward to sailing with you soon.
See you on the Dock…
