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
Position: 43º 39.702′ N 70º 14.298′ W Convivia is on the hard and the crew has moved onto Eva. Eva is now at anchor in front of our old ‘home’ in the PYS mooring field. The docks are back in. WOOT!
Position: 43º 39.798′ N 70º 14.52′ W Convivia is once again dangling at the end of her chain. We are anchored out in front of the former PYS mooring field. In a few days (weeks?) We will move her to the hard and join forces with the mighty s/v Eva for another epic adventure. Stay […]
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.
