* VIDEO * Skipper Ed Delivering Yacht from BVI to NYC Via Exumas


I will be assisting friends with the delivery of their new sailing yacht “Sealight” a 43 foot Beneteau. This is an “X” Charter Yacht from Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. The goal is to deliver this yacht safely to it’s final home at the Port Credit Yacht Club in Toronto, Canada. I will make up the crew along with other friends of the new owners, Tracey & Neilson Ruiz, most of whom are also members of the Port Credit Yacht Club.

I will be joining them for a total of 21 days from the BVI’s to The Turks & Caicos, then on to George Town, Exuma where our families will join us, my wife Roxane, kids Thomas and Alexander along with Neilson’s wife Tracey and their kids Natasha and Nicholas. We will then spend 10 days enjoying the Bahamas enroute to Nassau. There we will fly home, and Neilson will be joined by other crew that will continue on to Charleston. I will then return with my own crew, and Captain to boat from Charleston to New York City.

This delivery is now successfully completed without incident, praise God for being with us through out the voyage.
