It Comes Full Circle

deltaville

Ten years ago, Marc and I were living in Richmond, Virginia.  We had a sailboat on the Chesapeake in a small town called Deltaville.  It’s a sleepy little town in the winter and a bustling hot spot for sailors in the summer.

During our recent search for a cruising boat, we searched all of North America, Central America and the Caribbean.  And low and behold, the sailboat we ended up buying was located in Deltaville, VA.  Score!  Deltaville holds so many great memories for us that buying a boat from there was the icing on the cake.

Last week Marc and I, along with our delivery captains Ben & Teresa Carey, flew into Richmond and drove a rental car to Deltaville.  Deltaville looked the same and it felt like no time had passed since we were last there a decade ago.  Even our favorite little coffee shop was still in business.

A bonus to our arrival in Deltaville was meeting up with David Clark, the captain of a J105 boat that Marc used to race on in Deltaville.  Marc was crew on David’s racing boat for a number of years, so seeing David was loads of fun.

Here we are on Adagio with David.

It really is a great feeling knowing that the beginning of this sailing journey is where our last one ended.
