Position: 43º 39.72′ N 70º 14.328′ W Conveva is at anchor at PYS for a few more days before heading to Grenada.
Position: 43º 39.492′ N 70º 14.874′ W Eva has cleared Customs and is about to shove off. Next stop, Grenada. All is well.
Position: 39º 22.98′ N 68º 7.182′ W Our second day was fairly uneventful. The kids got their sea legs (a mixed blessing to be sure) and we lost wind for a while. Today is my (Tucker’s) birthday, so it’s likely to be amazing, if for no other reason than the flourless chocolate cake that Vick […]
Position: 34º 48.942′ N 65º 27.81′ W Yesterday we eased into our groove. Easy sailing to weather, <1m seas, sunshine and good food was the order of the day. The night was partly cloudy and afforded us a pretty good view of the universe. Today has been wing on wing, dead down wind, with slight […]
Position: 32º 0.228′ N 64º 52.08′ W Yesterday we had a nice (but short) visit by some tiny spotted dolphins. We passed Bermuda this morning and lingered for an hour (off-shore) to get an internet fix. We checked email, and I got some documentation for some programming projects (one of which generated the NMEA lat/lon […]
Position: 25º 17.328′ N 62º 10.776′ W After 12+ hours of motoring, the crew needed a bit of relief so we stopped the engines and swan dove off the gantry into the Saragasso Sea. The water was crystal clear (and 6km deep) and we took turns diving as deep as we could, sinking cans, and […]
Position: 12º 4.2′ N 61º 46.92′ W Eva arrived in St. Georges, Grenada just after sunset. We will spend the night here and go around to Prickly Bay tomorrow morning to check in and celebrate Ruby’s birthday. All is well
Position: 15º 22.812′ N 61º 55.002′ W I realized this morning that I forgot to post a position report yesterday. We are now in the Caribbean. We passed our first islands since Bermuda in the morning (yesterday), and are now in the lee of Dominica. If we can pick up speed again we will arrive […]
Position: 12º 0.024′ N 61º 45.732′ W Eva has reached our destination. Prickly Bay, Grenada will be our base of operations for the summer. We found a great spot to anchor, right up close to the beach. We haven’t seen this many sailboats since leaving Martinique over a year ago. All is well
Some might say that it is the very definition of madness to winter over in Maine and leave for the tropics as summer begins to burst onto the scene. Those people would be absolutely correct. Nevertheless, that is just what we have done. The trip from Portland to Grenada took us within shouting distance of […]
