One month from today, May 17, 2011, is the target date to set sail. Will I actually leave the dock at Masonboro Yacht Club in Wilmington, NC that exact day? I do not know…and will not know until the day before. Why? One of the most important rules of sailing is…Patience…as in all aspects of the paths we take. I will begin watching weather systems moving across our continent the week prior ( I am actually watching them now…studying them closely…feeling their movements). An interesting website is www.passageweather.com
The window for departure begins…in my head at least…on May 17th and extends to the middle of June…sometime within that period, I will depart…the exact date will be determined not by me, but by Nature. In the same vein…my exact arrival date in Lisbon, Portugal is…and will remain a question…sometime in June or July.
