FROM THE CAPTAIN’S LOG | July 1, 2015 | Early this morning, my crew and I arrived in the Abaco Islands. On June 27, Sail On Charters left the dock at Stock Island Marina Village for its 14-day inaugural sail to the Abaco Islands, a 120-mile-long string of tropical Bahamian islands about 180 miles off the south Florida coast. We made it in time for the 40th anniversary of Regatta Time in Abaco. Known locally as The Abacos, these islands have long been among my personal favorites. They remind me of the legendary Key West of the 1970s.
In 2013, when Phillips Parker Orberson & Arnett opened its Florida office in Key West, I re-launched Sail On Charters, which was formerly based in Coral Gables, FL. We are also affiliated with the Castle Harbor Sailing School.
Sail On Charters is owned by Sail On Captain LLC, a Florida limited liability company, and focuses on high-performance sailing for experienced sailors, which gives me an opportunity to fulfill my life-long passion for open-water sailing. Although Sail On Charters remains secondary to my law practices in Louisville and Key West, I am delighted to share that Sail On successfully completed the first half of its Abacos’ sail.
We will be posting photos, videos and updates along the way. You can follow our inaugural adventures on Facebook. If you have a Facebook account, just click the link and “like” our page. Not on Facebook? Our website is under development, but it’s ready for a “soft launch” in time for posts from The Abacos trip.
