Adventure of a lifetime

Sailing round the world....slowly

Good Morning

A very early 0230 departure this morning. We moved last night to be in a good, easy sandy spot so aid a night time departure. All went well with getting the anchor up and P did a great job on the helm battling the strong currents whilst following the tracks i...

Sunshine!

Oh what a beautiful day! The wind died down, the sun was out in full force and so we spent most of the day ashore or exploring in the dinghy. Still a bit too cool for me to swim yet, but its getting closer! Met Taz (an Aussie-Doodle) ashore, went for a walk...

Hiding from the wind

19nm today around to the other side of the island in preparation for a weather front moving through tomorrow and Saturday. Overcast and not much sun, but still a stunning anchorage and amazing water colour. Absolutely nothing done to these pics!!
Caught...

Berry Islands

64nm motoring all the way, Grand Bahama Island to the Berry Island group. Departed 1015 arrived and anchor down by 2350. Caught a Mahi Mahi, not huge, but will give us 2 meals. Sunny most of the way and flat seas. 22 empty cruise ships anchored out off the...

Bahamas!!

91nm from Fort Lauderdale to Port Lucaya Bahamas. Departed 1530 monday, arrived 1030 Tuesday. Had a great pod of dolphins giving us an active farewell early in the passage, not much wind so basically motored over with fairly flat seas considering we were...

Fort Lauderdale

Actually had quite an enjoyable passage down. Unfortunately we had to motor sail most of the way as we wanted to stay at 5kts, but we did have 3 hrs of great sailing around midnight.
Not much boat traffic and calm seas. Arrived at Lauderdale at 1335 and...

Here we go

So we departed Titusville this morning at first light. It was cold and overcast, but now, at Noon, its sunny and we're sailing south. Not sure how far we'll go, will depend on wind and current.
Currently doing 5kts and running on the heady only

We're back!!

Travelled from Texas back to boat in Titusville Marina on Saturday. Will stay here a week doing a couple small jobs...including inflating amd testing our new dinghy. Will stock up with extra supplies amd keep an eye on the weather for a crossing to the...

Tidal flow

Waited for the cirrent to ease before we departed this morning, but still had it against us for most of the way to St Augustine. Had a short wait for the opening bridge and then went through with about 5 other boats. We knew we werent going far today. Will...

Back in Florida

We were sitting over coffee, checking our emails and the morning weather and wind conditions, and both realised that the best winds for heading south were...today. So we decided to go for it. Allan had let us borrow the car, so we went and got our gas bottles...
