Ocean Crossing Update.

Ocean Crossing Update.

The Skipper reports that all is well aboard Let It Be. Nearly half way between the Canaries and Tortola.

Let It Be has it’s own website.

Thanks to our son, Hunter, our Helia 44 named Let It Be now has it’s own website. We want to make Let It Be a little more personalized than just another boat in charter; therefore, the website. We invite our charter guest to submit photos and guestbook entries to help keep Let It Be’s website up to date.

Let It Be, the Helia 44 that will be available for charter with TMM in March is making progress across the Atlantic towards Tortola. The crew reports that progress is good and the trade winds are holding nicely.

Very cool 3D view of the new Helia 44.

This web link below is a very well done moving 3D image of the Helia 44.

Thanks to an experienced delivery captain and crew, Let It Be continues her journey across the Atlantic. LIB made landfall in the Canary Islands on January 18 and has set out on the longest leg of her journey which will take her to Tortola. Happy sailing.

Welcome to our Let It Be blog

Welcome to our blog about Let It Be, our new Fountaine Pajot Helia 44’ catamaran. This is our first foray into catamaran ownership and chartering and we are really excited about it.

The Helia 44 is Fountaine Pajot’s innovative replacement for the admirable Orana. The Helia hits all the important areas for today’s sailor; spacious living in a catamaran that sails well. The raised helm station seats 3 people and is as social as it is practical. Let It Be has several convivial areas such as the lounge deck on top of the bimini, the open and spacious cockpit, the beautiful salon and galley that open nicely onto the cockpit and the comfortable trampoline for enjoying the sun. The galley’s functional layout is complemented by the large separate freezer and fridge opposite the galley entrance. Due to the sliding galley window the cook is never separated from the activity in the cockpit. The four individual cabins are very bright, pleasant and comfortable. Each cabin has it’s own spacious bathroom with separate shower and head.

Due to the generous sail plan and light displacement the Helia sails well and remains very manageable. The electric winch makes easy work of sail raising and handling. All lines are led to the raised steering station making a simple task of tacking and changing course.
