All Systems Are Go For Depature Tomorrow

3 1/2 years ago when we first got s/v Honey Ryder
Okay gang, this is it!  We plan to head out of Morehead City NC sometime tomorrow morning.  Destination Virgin Islands!  Woo Hoo!  As a reminder, we will be part of the Salty Dawg Rally.  You can follow our progress on the Salty Dawg Rally web site - look on the right hand side where it says "follow the fleet".  If for some reason we don't show up there, don't panic.  More than likely.....like 99.9999%... it will be because of some sort of communication technology issue and not that something has happened to us.  We probably won't be blogging during this time but you know I am going to take a TON of pics AND....our crew, John is a retired cameraman/photographer so you've been warned.  We will probably have a lot of pics to post of the passage once we get down to the Virgin Islands and find wifi. 
Thanks to all of you for following along and supporting us.  Those of you who have gone before us have been SO wonderful to give us hints, tips, suggestions and advice.  I only hope we can return the favor someday and pay it forward.  In a small way, perhaps this blog can inspire and help those that will follow in our wake.   


  1. I'm so excited for you guys! Can't wait for a full report - I'll try to follow along with the Rally. Fair winds friends. Enjoy every bit of your adventure.

  2. Sabrina and Tom, have a fun and safe trip. Looking forward to reading about the adventure.

    Fair winds,

  3. With all those electronics mounted on your helm you can't miss the islands! Fair winds.

  4. Kooky Dance has been following your progress toward BVI. We have listened to the daily SSB radio chat and were always excited to hear your position each day. We can not wait to see and hear your stories of your blue water adventure. We plan on participating in the Dawg rally next year. You are a great inspiration to us.
