Position: 12º 27.342′ N 61º 29.352′ W Eva and her crew are loving Carriacaou. The water is much clearer and the people more friendly. We will likely stay another week or so! All is well
Position: 12º 27.36′ N 61º 29.34′ W Eva is in Tyrell Bay Carriacou. We wanted a change of pace so we headed up here to check out the regatta. All is well.
Position: 41º 27.27′ N 69º 28.14′ W I had a conversation with a coworker just before I left about how fresh the ocean air smells. I was recalling the S. Indian ocean and the rarefied, pristine lungfulls I consumed there. When the sun finally came out this morning, I opened the hatches and took a […]
Position: 29º 16.362′ N 63º 30.06′ W Today we saw a large potted plant float by. That may be one of the weirdest at-sea sightings I’ve heard of. We had jaffles for lunch, which is (for those of you who, like me did not know what these are) a kind of panini like grilled cheese […]
Position: 36º 40.218′ N 67º 9.75′ W We crossed the Gulf Stream last night. I had delayed our departure, specifically to avoid a wind against current situation, and as we progressed, I routed to the most advantageous angle of attack, but despite my best efforts, we ended up with 20+ knots against 3 knots of […]
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 […]
