SALE OF YOUR HOME
Then it was the Covid lockdown, under the Spanish
military. You were not allowed in the water to check your
anchors, they had drones flying around, people were not
allowed in their swimming pools, it was very extreme. I
decided to sail across 22 days the end of April, arriving at
Guadeloupe part of the Leeward Islands in the Northern
Lesser Antilles chain in the eastern Caribbean Sea the end
I had no idea what was going on in the world, I was just
half expecting World War 3 to be going on. I stayed there
from May until October 2020, then I needed to get to
the U.S. I sailed Guadeloupe to the British Virgin Islands
and rested there for one night. I did offshore the Bahamas
straight to St. Augustine. It was still hurricane season. I
was 200 miles east of the Bahamas, I don’t want much drift
room between me and the reefs.
