Over the years, we've explored much of the Caribbean Sea & Atlantic East coast. In January 2012, we left the USA and headed for the Pacific. We visited the Galapagos, French Polynesia, Samoa, Cook Islands & Tonga before heading to New Zealand. We've enjoyed thousands of miles of beautiful sailing, great diving and interesting islands, not to mention wonderful people. New Zealand was fantastic as well! In 2013, we sailed to Fiji, Vanuatu and then made a brief stop in New Caledonia before returning to New Zealand for another cyclone season. In 2014, we sailed back to Vanuatu & New Cal to do more diving and explore some more before heading to Bundaberg, Australia. We've now explored Australia by land & sea- what a great & BIG country! On July 1st 2015, we joined the ICA Sail 2 Indonesia rally in Cairns and made our way up the rest of eastern Australia to Indonesia. We spent 4 months cruising Indonesia and had many unique experiences, but were ultimately rushed out by intolerable smoke from agricultural fires. It was wonderful to finally reach Singapore after so many years of anticipation. We then joined the generous Sail Malaysia Rally to make our way to Penang & Langkawi, and we ended the year In Phuket, Thailand. In January, we cruised around in Thailand & got to thinking about shipping our boat to the Mediterranean since we've never been. We got a good offer from Peters & May shipping and decided to go for it. Evergreen arrived in Greece in late February, and we got to visit Nepal & India while it was being transported. We plan to cruise the Mediterranean now- a whole new place!
