A Time to Play and a Time to Work

The Argo before the renaming

Winter in Phoenix was nice but it is time to get back to work.  We have a new sailboat this year and we are making small changes to our schedule and route but the plan remains the same.

The new sailboat is a 1975 Irwin 30 Competition.   I used the Sailboat Listing website to locate her in Boston, Ma for an great price.  You can really find good deals on that website.

I am flying into Philadelphia, Pa on Monday to gather the necessary supplies that we will needed over the next one or two weeks.  Then Stephen and I will drive to Boston and supply the ship, load our maps into the plotter and strap on the dinghy.  I am hoping to set sail on the 28th of this month.  It should take 1 to 2 weeks to travel the distance to Olverson’s Lodge Creek Marina in Lodge Creek, Va. depending on luck, weather, currents and the Gods.

1975 – Irwin 30 Competition.

A 30 foot racing sloop with a fin keel and the rudder on skeg.  She was built to sail fast and hard.
