Finally...we're home! Yesterday, after 285 days and nights away from her homeport of Portland, we once again tethered Katahdin to her mooring at Centerboard Yacht Club. It was fitting that we fought rolling and bucking seas on two of our last three days up from P-town, as we had experienced that - [...]

We're almost home. Currently we are at anchor back in Gloucester, MA where we spent 2 nights waiting out some nasty weather, way back in early September.

Since the low descended on us last night, and especially during our sail today, we have battled [...]

After we left Norfolk 10 days ago, we journeyed the length of the Chesapeake, transited the C&D canal, and are now motoring down Delaware Bay to our anchorage at Cape May. We had expected to hoist our sails and, with the hoped-for combination of astern wind and gentle seas, enjoy our passage up the [...]

It's been awhile since the last post; somehow, just traveling up the ICW, popping in and out of anchorages, towns, cities, etc., has become the norm and we're getting a bit blasé about it all. But that's all changing. Right now, we are at Mile #0 of the ICW, here at a marina in Norfolk. I even bought [...]
