Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Jeff on Spirit and hurricane Maria
I watched Jeff dock Spirit in TCI earlier this year. It was blowing really hard. He never touched a pylon.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Jeff on Spirit and hurricane Maria
I just received a note from Jeff on his Amel 54.
He left the South west coast of Puerto Rico before Maria and headed south. He encountered winds to 40 knots and seas 8-12 feet.
He returned to the marina and he was the only boat floating,. The buoys to the entrance were gone
Some boats floating and many piled up on the beach. He entered and tied up to the gas dock in 20 knots.
He did this all single handed.30 hours total time solo.
Congratulations to Jeff
