It’s been a while since we have posted an update. Mostly we have been busy with school and jobs and planning for a great new adventure in the summer. But more on that later. For now, here’s a glimpse of an average morning… walking to work in a blizzard.
Position: 43º 39.32′ N 70º 14.99′ W Convivia is at the dock for the first time since Cape Town. We are snugged in next to Eva, who is also at dock for the first time since Cape Town. All is well.
Position: 43º 39.6′ N 70º 14.982′ W This is our actual location. Hey, and how about that pretty map on the FB and Twitter posts 🙂
Position: 40º 42.768′ N 74º 0.36′ W This is our last week at anchor (for the season). On the 15th we will be heading in to dock at Dimillo’s Marina for the winter. Hopefully, our heater will arrive before then. It’s getting chilly. All is well.
Position: 43º 39.762′ N 70º 14.292′ W Convivia is back on Anchor in Portland. The adults are looking for jobs, and the kids are enjoying “summer break”. All is well
Position: 43º 56.592′ N 69º 27.228′ W Zero miles to go. Convivia and crew have completed the Round the World trip that we set out on. October 1, 2011 to July 1, 2017. Convivia fits right in here. All is well!
Position: 43º 39.492′ N 70º 14.862′ W WE DID IT! We arrived in Portland, ME with the sunrise this morning after an ideal 1400 nautical mile passage. By lunchtime, we will be with our parents again for the first time in 3 years. Convivia had one last treat for us. As we entered the inner […]
Position: 40º 49.05′ N 69º 15.21′ W We lost our wind entirely today. It’s been 12 hrs of motoring already, and we probably have a dozen more before the wind fills in. Match that with a 1.7 knot counter current, and you have some real slow going. We used the time to make power and […]
Position: 38º 25.482′ N 71º 59.202′ W Well that was fun. Our little gale blew right on time, and gave us a post-Gulf Stream daily average speed of 7 knots. It is a strange thing to be sad to see such powerful weather evaporate, but now, as I look at our paltry 5.4 knot avg, […]
