I can't say I didn't cry just a little bit. It was like abandoning a friend and close companion. I think Madrigal is happy though. Her new owner plans to live aboard her on a mooring at Block Island. He plans to install a wind generator very soon, and he plans quite a few other ambitious and wonderful projects... all of which I'm sure Madrigal herself will appreciate. He is very happy with the boat and how she performed on her sail down there. It may be sad to hand her over, but life changes, we change, and our needs change. She is in good hands and we are all happy to be moving on.
Farewell Madrigal, Farewell.
