After several years of dreaming, thinking about 'it', planning and searching, we finally bought a 38' Island Packet cutter rig. She is currently in Malletts Bay, Colchester, Vermont. Her current name is KRISTINLY and after the required ceremony, we will change her name to ALPENGLOW.
Why the name Alpenglow you ask? Alpenglow means 'The rosy light of the setting or rising sun seen on high mountains'. We live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where there is lots of Alpenglow. We also got engaged at the Alpenglow Stube restaurant in Keystone, Colorado.
Randy, the former owner will be helping us bring her down the Champlain canal and onto the Hudson River this summer. We are very lucky to have Randy help us with this as he's done it several times. We will end up in Virginia until after the hurricane season then onto the Florida keys and Bahamas this winter. After that, you'll just have to wait and see !
