A Sailing Vacation

After a relaxed evening in Texan Bay we motored straight up to Nana Juana Marina and hauled Melody out onto the hard stand. We spent the rest of the day prepping her for the stay, cleaning and packing everything away, donating our remaining fruit & veg to the other cruisers and then packing our own belongings for the early morning trip back to charter work in Belize the following day.

Our boss, Cliff, and his wife,¬†Rachael, have treated us like family since the first day we arrived in Belize and, as the season comes to an end, I’ve been getting a little nostalgic, looking back at photos from previous charters.

These photos are from our very first charter working for Belize Sailing Vacations. We had one of the company’s other skippers, Andy, join us to help familiarise us with the routes and the boat. The charter was booked for 10 days in early July. The weather didn’t cooperate with us all the time but we had a great couple onboard, from Germany, who were an absolute blast to spend time with.
