Key West Sailing Adventures-One Particular Harbor
Hi folks, As some of you know may know, our Key West sailing adventures started back in 1995 when a dream and a faulty compass deposited us off Content Key one hot July night. Waking up the next morning, we found ourselves surrounded by lobster traps. Apparently lobster season had just opened up as soon as we set the anchor the night before. After negotiated a 20 knot east wind and playing trap tag with several buoys we sailed east and found ourselves gainfully employed by Monroe County Schools. The rest is history and as all who live here will attest “Were all here because we are not all here”.
Like so many of the folks we met here, all with their own Key West sailing adventures, we tend to dream a lot, and suffer from bouts of wanderlust. Our latest dream was to fix the compass and head south to the Banana Republic of Panama. Well, for reasons that may never be realized, Panama will have to wait.
We started out with a lot of momentum, and the wind was with us, but as life and sailing goes when the wind is in your face don’t fight it. The old adage “Gentlemen never sail to weather” certainly has opened up a lot of opportunities for Namaste Sailing and a familiar harbor is always a welcome layover. So were back in Key West.

What a way to kick off our 2012 season. We had a lovely couple that came to us via Capt. Alex and Islescapes Dinner Cruises. Capt Alex has been a wonderful business affiliate and if your ever in the mood for a gourmet dinner on the water please check out “Islescapes”.
What a great day! Started off with a late afternoon snorkel trip and followed up with this gorgeous sunset in that “One Particular Harbor”. Thank you Mike and Heather for our first sunset sail of the 2012 season.
For all you Cap. Ron Fans you will be happy to know that he is in full study mode and is brushing up on fish identification. We caught him sneaking in some “study” time with Capt, Trish’s Humann and Deloach Reef Identification Set. I admire his ambition.

One last shout out before we sign off for today’s post and this one goes out to all the nice folks at Conch Harbor Marina. Whether its a friendly assist to a hard docking or a quick fuel stop and dingy drop, Conch Harbor as always been a good friend to Namaste Sailing. Thanks Folks
