Day 41 (June 15) – at sea Today is my 1.5 month anniversary on board this boat. What a crazy few weeks it has been! Our status is the same. The swell got worse through the night with many waves breaking over the stern but they seem to be calming a bit. We got an […]
While adrift in the Atlantic we had to build a new rudder so we could keep moving forward. It was an incredibly big project and even though cumbersome to steer, it worked and was extremely solid.
Day 30 (June 3) – at sea Finally back underway. I enjoyed Bermuda very much – particularly the taste of my old life – but I am ready to keep moving forward. Busy day today with last minute leave prep work. The boys coming home late followed a couple hours later by massive rains meant […]
I’ve always thought that finding a message in a bottle would be an interesting experience. Unfortunately, since it’s also a rare experience and not one that can be controlled, I decided to go a different route and release one instead. In fact, during my Atlantic crossing, I released two bottles.
Day 10 (May 13) – St Martin We left St Martin today, heading for the BVIs. The weather is still bad for heading up to Bermuda. Apparently there is a pretty big storm up north with winds strong enough to cause us problems. Works for me, I get to see more new places. We were […]
We spent a couple days hopping around the BVIs before heading to Bermuda. Read more about my time in the BVIs here.
The Baths are a series of pools created by large granite boulders. It is a 20 minute walk through the shoreline boulder field to reach Devil’s Beach which is the epitome of Caribbean beaches. Learn more about this part of my sailing trip here.
Day 1 (May 4) – St Lucia See all St. Lucia photos here Although I have been here a few days, I consider today the first real day of my sailing trip. The fourth member off our crew arrived last night and this morning we headed out to the anchorage to prepare to sail tomorrow.
We only stopped at Guadalupe for one night to take a break while motoring from St Lucia to St Martin. We were only on land long enough to have dinner but it looked like a pretty little island. See more about my time in Guadalupe here.
St. Lucia is where I started my two-month sailing trip across the Atlantic. Read more about this phase of my trip here.
