It's very hard to find a time and place to get together. Even harder when it involves a sailboat in a foreign country coupled with everyone's busy schedules. A special thanks to our families for letting us have some guy time on the water. It was fantastic.
Everyone arrived late New Year's day in Nassau. Early the next morning, we got up, provisioned the boat and left the marina. It was a fast pace, but we wanted to get away from the city, and head to the remote islands of the Exumas.
It was the first time sailing on a large boat for the crew. We spent time doing safety discussions (no drinking while sailing - hard to imagine but true), man overboard procedures, etc. Everyone had a chance to perform different duties each day. It was a blast.

After our sundowner, it was off to make dinner. After dinner we would either watch a guy flick or hang outside, reminisce about college and look at the stars (no, we didn't cue up Air Supply - even though Bobby "Peaches" wanted us to!).
