Official Ownership

Last week we sailed with three Antares personnel to Colonia, Uraguay for the official transfer of ownership of Bella Luna from Antares to us.  It was a very special time after five years of work we are now the proud owners of Bella Luna.

Great Sailing

When we arrived in Uraguay we had prayer and a dedication of Bella Luna.

Maker of the heaven and earth, sky and the sea and all that is in it.  Today we ask your blessing upon our boat, Bella Luna.  Please keep us and all who come aboard safe against all perils and evil.  Give us wisdom and always guide us by your hand.
Today we dedicate Bella Luna in memory of Henry Rasmussen (Debbie's Dad) who inspired the dream, and who we love and miss so much.  Until the day breaks and all the shadows flee away, and He comes who's right it is to reign and because of Jesus we are re-united.  In the name of the Father, Son and Holy spirit.  Amen

We even had a little "bubbly" to make it official and a little on the bow too for Bella Luna.
Memo, Gaston, Gord and Jeff

Beautiful Sunset in Colonia

We spent a couple of days in Colonia then returned to Argentina.

Yes, the auto pilot is on, and our flag flying!

Now preparing for our sail north to Brazil.  Shopping, cooking, freezing for easy meals at sea and testing and learning all of Bella Luna's complex systems.   Also, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning!!
