Morpheus was designed by Carl Schumacher, built by Davie Norris Boatbuilders in New Zealand and launched in 2002. She spent her first 18 months cruising the South Pacific before reaching her home port of San Francisco. Since that time, Morpheus has been raced and cruised extensively. This blog will document her ongoing adventures.
This feels like we are moving out of the neighborhood. Sort of like I was a kid leaving Stamford, Ct. leaving lots of friends for the great unknown.
The coast guard has given us permission to leave and return!
Current thinking, input from friends (thank you!) and weather reports do not support a rapid departure from the Caribbean.
We will watch the weather and depart when it’s safe to do so.
For now we are going to go visit a real grocery store and buy lots and lots of real food!! No more freeze dried chicken!!
We are not the first to leave. The French boat left at 6am.
14 boats in the harbor.
The four boats traveling together with kids leave tomorrow for Antigua we will probably see them there.
We hosted a big farewell cocktail party on the boat last night!! Probably the last we will host or attend for a while.
This is absolutely the best kitesurfing location that I have ever visited. I may just retire after this. Can’t even imagine putting on a wetsuit to kite, or dealing with more than one or two other kiters on the water.
