Saying good bye to Prince Diamond was a bitter sweet experience. We spent a day or two exploring Grenada. And I joined a new boat for my passage to Bonaire.
A friend of mine wrote an article about my beautiful life. I hope you enjoy it and clap on her article to show your appreciation.
March 5th 2019 Tossed and turned all night tonight, trying to sleep for my 4 am shift. Have a crick in my lower back that doesn't want to go away. I know it would if I took a walk. Oh yeah, I'm in the middle of the Atlantic and can't do that right now. Cruiser's … Continue reading Sailing from Namibia to St Helena, March 5th
March 6th, 2019 Wow, what a difference a day makes! The last couple days have been overcast and gloomy. Today has been sunny and warm. We've been chugging along on our genoa, but the wind has dropped off quite a bit. So we broke out the spinnaker. Brian has a huge, beautiful spinnaker with his … Continue reading Sailing from Namibia to St Helena, March 6th
Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 We left Walvis Bay, Namibia, this morning. We started off for the first several hours with the motor and sails as there wasn’t enough wind to push along without some help from the motor. A few hours later, however, the wind picked up and we are only running the motor for … Continue reading Sailing from Namibia to St Helena, Day 1
Sunday, March 2nd, 2019, 2:30am on the midnight shift The wind has backed and is now on our back port quarter. The mainsail is still reefed but the genoa is completely out. We are now averaging about 5 knots and it’s cold out here. I put socks on! I rarely put socks on! The motor … Continue reading Sailing from Namibia to St Helena, Day 2
Day 3 on our way to Namibia. A little bit about our destination and a huge pod of Dolphins.
As we sit here in the bay of Alhaca Island, Mozambique, waiting for the storm to come thru and ravish the ocean around us, (but hopefully more so out there, than in here) we are rocking and rolling. We anchored in 7 meters of depth and put out all of our 60 meters of chain … Continue reading Rock & Rolling, Waiting for the Storm
The past three days, after leaving Bazaruto, we have been sailing south to find an anchorage that will be safe from a southern storm heading our way that is supposed to hit us on the 1st. It's now 2 AM on the 31st and we are motoring towards that anchorage although it's still about 40 … Continue reading Sailing Towards a Storm
Today we decided to go to the island and explore. We could see sand dunes from the boat and that seemed like a good adventure to us, but we had no idea all the amazing things we would end up seeing. First off, I don't know how I can even begin to share with you … Continue reading Bazaruto, A Sand-dune Slice of Heaven
We spent the last 3 days sailing from Baly Bay, Madagascar, to Ilha Casurina, Mozambique. It's really just a small island off the coast of Madagascar that has an anchorage and gives us a little bit of protection from the storm that has been blowing now for 24 hours. The channel between Mozambique and Madagascar … Continue reading Arrived Safe and Sound in Mozambique
