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 […]
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: 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
