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 had many adventures and there are tales to be told and we will work on catching up. But we wanted to say hello from the present.
We are right now anchored in Salt Whistle Bay on Mayreau in the Grenadines. The Grenadines are definitely one of those bucket list places for us. We have been talking about them since we started sailing. Beautiful shallow water, protected anchorages and endless places to kite…
We love it. We are staying put for a few days.
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 […]

Well, we have a little catching up to do. Two months ago we arrived in Puerto Rico and for two months we have been meandering through the Virgin Islands. Now we are onto the leeward islands as head south to Grenada for Hurricane season. So what’s with the delay? Well we had guests. We had […]
Bear with us as we work on our video editing skills. Somewhat embarrassed by this video but in the spirit of progress, we’ve pushed this out anyways. More to come in terms of video soon.
Quickly we realized that Ben needed a car for the gathering of engine parts while living in Fajardo. What we didn’t realize was that Puerto Rico was one of those places where people drive however they want. Ben pulled out his race car driver mode as he navigated around half of Puerto Rico in preparation of […]
After a week at sea, we were happy to tuck into a decent marina in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. We slept and rested for a day. Then it was off to work. We had major issues with our transmissions not going into gear. Days prior to departing the Bahamas the starboard engine wouldn’t consistently go into […]
Day 5 – Alone & Near Mutiny (By Ben) Perspective: We’re pretty far away from civilization now. Haven’t seen any freighters for about a day. It’s night time. 4 in the morning. It’s dark. No moon. Just stars and a big empty ocean. I lay on the front of my boat as it gently bobs […]
