Last summer we completed a five month voyage from Florida to Newfoundland. The two of us sailed directly from Forida to Nantucket as a first leg, a passage of some seven days. Over the next several months we sailed north along the Maine and then the Nova Scotian coast, crossing first the Bras d'or Lake and exploring the Cabot Trail. Then we crossed the Gulf of St. Lawrence to make the eastern coast of Newfoundland. We exlored the fiords of the southern coast, then turned south at the eastern tip to find Isle St. Pierre, the last French possession in North America. From there we headed south and the U.S.A.
We completed our 2011 6,200 mile trip from Dana Point, California to Newport, Rhode Island in July, 2011. We cruised down the Baja and the Pacific coast of Mexico with stops at places such as Cabo San Lucas, Acapulco, and Hautulco near Oaxaca. We crossed the Gulf of Tehuantepec, visited Guatemala and put in at El Salvador for a week. Then we sailed for Costa Rica, and after a few stops in route, we moored at Papagayo for a month, and visited the capital San Jose as well as other ports including Los Suenos, Quepos and Golfito. After a brief trip home, we rejoined the boat and headed for Panama and the Pacific Islands of Parida and Coiba. We transited the Canal in late April and then cruised to the San Blas Islands where we enjoyed a week with the Kuna Indians; we then crossed the Caribbean Sea to Montego Bay, Jamaica. From there, we sailed past Cuba and Haiti, up the Windward Passage and headed for the Bahamas. We enjoyed the white sands and friendly people during our days in Georgetown and the Chat'n Chill Tiki Bar. After ten days in the Bahamas we put in at West Palm Beach, Florida. After a brief stopover, we moved up the east coast to Norfolk, NYC, Long Island and finally Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
