Could not sleep last night...gave me time to reflect on the sailing adventures of 04...

April:
Grenadines and rain....14 days trip.. 12 days of squalls.
sailing hightlight: 60 kts puff off Canouan, naked at the wheel with diving mask on...
trip hightlight: as always Stinky on Mayreau

June:
BVI and calm: 10 days and very little wind
sailing highlight: spinnaker run from VG to Brandywine
trip highlight: the ensuing dinner at Davide's

November:
BVI-Miami: either 25-30kts or nothing...once again where are the trades ??
sailing highlight: flat seas and fair winds in the exuma sound Mama Cocha is doing 9 kts under the moonlight
trip highlight: Staniel Cay

December:
Miami- Marsh: never saw anything under 20kts...25-30 kts most nights and days
sailing highlight: 40-50 kts in the Gulf stream 20 ft waves foam streaking...
trip highlight: Green turtle club...good drinks, good food, new friends and a fire in the fireplace ....

My wish for 2005:
Please give me "normal" weather !!! and (I know this one is tough but...) could the weatherman be right from time to time...please.
