Various
Our adventure started in 2009 when we left on the Caribbean 1500 in November. Before that we had sailed in the Chesapeake and our first big trip to Maine in 2005.

We did a delivery to the BVI in 2004 and then our first Caribbean 1500 in 2006 when we returned via Bermuda.

The map here shows our overall path starting in 2009 when we went from the Chesapeake to the Caribbean and on to Panama. Then in 2012 we went from Panama to New Zealand via Polynesia, Niue and Tonga. We did a new Zealand road trip and then spent a season in Fiji. The last leg began in New Zealand again in 2014 and to the Marshall Islands via Minerva, Tonga, Samoa, and Fiji. We completed the last leg starting in 2016 in June where Sam and Doug sailed to the Aleutians and on to Seward, Alaska and to Anacortes in Washington State using the Inland Passage in Alaska and British Columbia.
