Fiona was launched today (Friday) by Weeks Yacht Yard.  The plan is to take Fiona to Maine for a month, leaving about 1 September.  Tom and his brother Chuck arrived here earlier in the week and will crew for the complete trip.   Tom has made three Trans-Atlantic passages aboard Fiona.  I  apologize to the few potential crew who wrote to me earlier in the year about crewing; my advice was to watch ‘Crew Call’, but then that was when I thought we could cruise the Caribbean for the winter.  Unfortunately Covid-19 has scuppered that idea.  I believe we can sail to Maine without incurring quarantine restrictions providing we don’t visit at Rhode Island on the way.
