How can you possibly leave when the wind is up and kiteboarding is to be had? The shallow waters of the San Blas offer some of the best Kiteboarding in the entire Caribbean. Behind each barrier reef are vast sections of knee deep water. The perfect place to kite.
The fridges are looking rather empty. A few rotten carrots. Two eggs and some stale bread. The top-loading fridge is a deep cavernous hole. The beer & wine situation is dismal. What was once an entire guest cabin reasonably filled with beer & wine is now a vacuum. Today we provision; An entire day […]
Talk about getting off the beaten path. Sailing our home through the San Blas for the past weeks and months has been an absolutely amazing cultural and breathtaking experience. There are picture perfect islands everywhere. The local Kuna indians, who control the land, have been able to maintain their way of life. It is so […]
No video in weeks. Over a month to be exact! Outrageous to leave our readers hanging. Well, we’ve been sailing in areas that are rather remote. No internet. No cell phone coverage. (not much beer). No vegetables. Nothing but deserted islands with a few perfect palm trees. Throw in some kiteboarding, spearfishing and snorkling and […]
We set sail from Puerto Rico expecting a “sporty” sail. What started as a mundane sail ended with winds to 40 knots, a fresh gale, and steep waves. The coast of Columbia is renowned for it’s sea conditions. Some say it’s the entire Atlantic piling up in this corner of the Caribbean. Others say it’s […]
What do you do when have to wait for batteries? You swim with dolphins! What an unreal experience!! We play with these intelligent creatures for probably over an hour. We watch and listen in awe as they chirp, laugh and blow bubbles around us. We continue to cruise the Spanish Virgin Islands and explore a rickety […]
We Kiteboard Salt Whistle Bay as well as the Tobago Keys. Hands down some of the best locations to kiteboard in the eastern Caribbean! We stop by Bequia and buy a 4 pound lobster. Then continue on overnight to Martinique where we stock up on french cheese, baguettes, and wine. Note: Fuel problems are now […]
What a fun couple of weeks! We do a little crazy driving in Grenada, catch a very nice size Wahoo (that’s a fish). We have fun trading with the local fishermen on Petit Martinique and get a lot wet with monsoon-like rains on Union Island. A little underwater exploration wraps up this action packed episode. […]
We’ve done it. We’ve left the boatyard and this time we managed to do it in under two weeks. Our mission was simple; get everything done below the waterline. The rest can wait. We’ve only seen a glimpse of what Grenada has to offer. It is an absolutely gorgeous island with an incredible amount of personality. The locals […]
This cruising life sounds wonderful doesn’t it? What we possibly gloss over is things like boatyard work. It’s really hot awful work. Nothing works on a boat when it’s out of the water. No toilets means climbing down a ladder in the middle of the night and running across the yard. No anchorage means no wind […]
After 30+ hours of travel, we are finally back in Grenada. The same island where our boat is! It’s been an epic journey. We have an epic time ahead of us with boat work. Very soon we’ll be back to cruising the tropical waters of the Caribbean and beyond!
We are enroute back to our boat! Currently sitting in the Toronto airport with another twelve hours of travel ahead of us. We absolutely cannot wait to see our gem of a Catamaran. She’s been patiently sitting on the hard in Grenada. We have massive plans this coming sailing season. Stay tuned for tons and […]
Normal scheduled programming will resume shortly as we prepare to head back to the boat in one weeks time. We have some major sailing plans this year which we’ll fill you in on shortly. In the meantime…. Reduced to $9,000 We’re selling our drop dead gorgeous Volkswagen Westfalia. It has a one-of-a-kind paint job. But don’t […]
Well we are so far behind in telling tales of our journey, it’s daunting to catch up. We have been flying through the Eastern Caribbean Islands working our way south. Destination: Grenada. Deadline: July 5th. Just over a month ago we left the virgin islands and we have been moving almost non-stop since. We have […]
Eight or so years ago we took a three week vacation to the BVIs. That vacation cemented our sailing dreams. I remember filling out the application to charter a sailboat. There was a section on experience. Oh man did we fill that up. We were actually pretty qualified… to rent a dinghy. We had raced all sorts […]
We woke up this morning bobbing ever so slightly. Sleepily, thoughts crossed our minds. What is the plan for today? Within a matter of a few sentences we decided that today we move. Move to another country. It is exactly this sort of freedom that appeals to us. Being able to move your entire house […]
