Summer is not officially over until the beginning of Autumn on September 23, 2010, but once Labor Day has passed and all the kids are back in school, that's really it. All done... Finished...

Beat the post-summer blahs and start planning your winter sailing vacation.

Planning a yacht charter for Christmas or New Years, or perhaps Spring Break? Better start soon. These dates always fill up fast.

Plus, there are some good last-minute specials for autumn 2010 barging cruises.

Contact Paradise Connections now while there are still some good choices.

We are currently anchored in Christiansted, St Croix in the US Virgin Islands. Thanks to all of you who expressed concern about Hurricane Earl. Fortunately this storm was not a problem for us (hurray!).
