is a Freedom 28 sailboat, hull # 24,designed by Gary Mull, and built by TPI (now by Freedom Yachts) in 1987. She spent her early years on the New Jersey coast and in Raritan Bay until we brought her through New York Harbor, up the East River, past Hell Gate and out Long Island Sound and back to New England in May, 1998.

Our cruising grounds are Buzzards Bay, the Elizabeth Islands, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. On the horizon are Block Island and Maine.

We sold Jabberwocky in December, 2004; she's now at Stingray Point, Deltaville, VA. She will have been sailed to and through the major bays of the Northeast. Built in Narragansett Bay, sailed from Barnegat Bay to Long and Block Islands, then from New Jersey to Buzzards Bay and up to Penobscot Bay. And now the Chesapeake!

The crew: Charis, Nan, Laurie and Dave P. (and Dave E. behind the camera) - note the light clothing, typical of Florida in the winter - this is why we Northeners come down?
