Position: 21º 4.392′ N 69º 22.308′ W This passage had been so darn mellow, it seems like we must be cheating, or getting our due after some of the earlier passages this year. Its hard to believe that we have crossed two oceans in the past year, and that we were just leaving Cocos Keeling, […]
Position: 20º 0.252′ N 67º 38.448′ W We have rerouted to Georgetown on the recommendation of every single person we have talked to about the Bahamas. We hope to arrive ahead of a nasty looking trough that is promising to dumps lots of water out of the sky, in conjunction with some big wind. I […]
Position: 17º 48.258′ N 64º 32.718′ W I seemed to have dropped the ball a bit on position reporting for this passage. Our first two days have gone pretty smoothly. We had a great current with us until early this morning, and we expect to have a mild current setting in our general direction for […]
Position: 14º 26.568′ N 60º 56.1′ W We are off. Farewell Martinique, next stop, Nassau, Bahamas.
Position: 14º 36.966′ N 61º 3.528′ W Our last full day in Martinique before shoving off for a long passage to the Bahamas. We have had a ball here, hanging out with Eva and exploring the island, but the season is closing out, and we have miles to cover. All is well.
Position: 14º 27.606′ N 60º 52.296′ W We have moved in to the Le Marin anchorage. The kids have their own little mangrove island to play on and town is close. Life is easy these days. All is well.
Position: 14º 26.292′ N 60º 53.502′ W Convivia and crew are safe in sound in Martinique. Our third (and last, for this trip) ocean has been crossed. The water is turquoise and the air is warm. All is well.
Position: 11º 40.632′ N 59º 11.76′ W The seas have flattened out, and we are making our northbound approach to Martinique. We have been chasing current since Fernando de Naronha, and it’s been paying off. Now we will beam reach at 7-8knots the rest of the way (I hope). It looks like we will arrive […]
Position: 9º 42.84′ N 56º 14.52′ W Ticking away the miles to Martinique. The sun is finally out, we are charging up the batteries and our spirits. The kids are happy and easy going, and we are really excited for landfall in a couple of days. All is well.
Position: 5º 56.778′ N 49º 27.732′ W Yesterday was the pits. We had swell from three directions, and Vick took some seasick pills that had side effects worse than the malaise. Today is a lot more comfortable, despite the continued squalls. We are still trying to figure out if running the engine with raw water […]
