S/Y Visions of Johanna
19 nm east of Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel
+++++ADDENDUM = SAFELY DOCKED IN NORFOLK - ALL IS WELL
Hello everyone. All is well on board Visions of Johanna.
Last night was gentlized by putting a third reef in the main, and three reefs plus staysail quited down our speed, and gave us a pretty smooth ride in 25-30 knots, with higher gusts,
We had a great lunch yesterday of Malcolm's meaty sandwhiches and cole slaw ala Amory and last night's dinner had a european flair - salami and cheese appetizer, swiss steak, rice pilaf, all capped with Jack's great Greek salad. If a crew travels on it's stomach, we are doing quite well.
About 4 -5 hours to our berth in Norfolk. More soon, and TC's.
Now berthed, and well fed after quiche (thank you Jo) and appropriate beverages. We will likely leave here Friday morning for Hilton Head, and will confirm upon the advice ofweather guru Ken McKinley,
Bill and crew
