Still here in South Padre Island, Texas. Spring breakers have kept gathering in numbers along the island and the new crew of the Odyssey has gathered on board. Heidi and Ryan (aka Burger), both of which I have sailed on the Tole Mour with, have flown in to help with the next crossing and beyond.
The sails are back on, parts are in, mostly, and now we are waiting for a weather window. The northern fronts are still coming in though so we are biding our time. A shakedown sail today went well, with the sails performing, the whisker pole working, and only grounding twice. Not bad.
