Sail Snorkel Party Catamaran Puerto Rico
Dear day dreamer15 September 2013
As the cat pushes out of the marina, the wind wraps in and around the boat. Filling in with the dreamed of sounds about us. The boat is a 51 foot Sailing catamaran built by then 35 year veteran sailor, Greg Korwek. At first coming from the North West, then South East, (due to the surrounding cliffs and hills) fluttering, the main sail was aloft. As she came out of the inlet/bay, your view was of a Caribbean scene, at once open ocean and as well littered with islands, small, and not so small. To capture a full NE trade wind, the Funcat rounded up to a Northerly heading. POPP! Out flys the foresail! With the terrain of the eastern coast of Puerto Rico on the port, and the smattering of islands to the Starboard, she cuddled in with the 15-20 knot consistent trades, for an hour sail out to one of those deserted islands.
Tune in next week for "Whats Next?!?"
Mink whale26 September 2013
What?! What's out there?? As in slow motion, your imagination filters in a creaking sound as if inside a vast expanse of the universe, a long breach and exaggerated SPLAASHHH! A Minke whale between us and the land! Although a smaller breed, still very majestic as such a sight takes your breath away! Unfortunately, not many whales actually migrate thru and around PR anymore but, we witnessed at least one this day. This day on the sailing catamaran Funcat, has barely begun... Just close your eyes and continue dreaming.
But she is too gorgeous to scare16 May 2014
Anchored in 3 feet of water on the shore of a deserted island, your wafting thoughts are of some story that you read a long time ago about some one purposely ship wrecking themselves to get away from the real world.
But this is no book...
After wadding into the shore, you just lazily drift around the corner of a coral out cropping. Just under the ledge, in 4 feet of water, 'what is that'? Something twitching? The antennae of a small caribbean lobster!? Lunch?!! But she is too gorgeous to scare, just watch her as she watches you.
Back on the beach for some sun rays, sub-consciencely you hear a crew member telling , about, ... deeper waters ... grass eating M...
