Southern Chesapeake

Mobjack Bay

Anchored. Short before midnight. So quiet. So beautiful. So peaceful!

On our way to North Carolina

Leaving the beautiful Bahamas. Now underway from Eleuthera Island to Beaufort, NC (USA). 650nm and hopefully arrive in 5 days. There is bad weather in the forecast north of the Virginia Maryland area for later. Hence, we try to make headway north now and have enough waiting time on hand for the next weather window heading to the Chesapeake.

Sailor’s shopping in Martinique

Local super market has s a dinghy dock for the boaters. Shopping carts are at the lamppost. Adds some romance to shopping 😎

Left Las Palmas – Destination Martinique

Las Palmas in the Background. No time to blog detailed.
Current Weather looks good. Hope to find the Trade Winds towards the Cape Verdes.

…And back in Santa Cruz with a technical problem

Last night limped back to port with a technical issue. We are getting tested for endurance, for sure. Repair requires parts from France resulting in a week delay. Well, there are enjoyable restaurants in Santa Cruz.

Safely moored and reevaluating.

Leaving Tenerife for Antigua!

Leaving our dock in some minutes.

Had a very busy time since August in the yard of Portimao Portugal with many unexpected larger repairs (again)

Our eta for English Harbor, Antigua is between 14 and 19th of December.

More later = in December.

Leaving Santa Cruz
