Sailing Around The World

Crossed The Gulf Strea

Hi Everybody! We are currently 125 nautical miles off the east coast working our way south east to the Nassau Bahamas. Everybody is doing well and other then some threatening storms we are making slow progress, could use some wind out here. We have been on the water for about 36 hours.

Fun story about our engine trouble which was a simple solution. We thought we were running on our starboard fuel tank but turns out we were on our port. We also found out that when you are out of fuel you get a low pressure alarm. Well thats what I get for not checking all systems DAMMMM IIIITTTTT! Sure was a dumb mistake to make but thats what happens when you play it really safe. I know now to start from the beginning Fuel and work my way back to the engine. Thanks,
Jacques

  1. Great to hear it was not a serious problem with the engine. Especially after all the work you had put into it. Sail safe.
