Sailing Around The World

On our Way to Bonaire!

We are on your way and the weather is very nice. A few squalls off in the distance but appear to be moving away from us. We are sailing averaging 6 to 7 knots with the wind right at our backs. I was thinking that this would be a pleasant voyage now finally having the wind at our backs but I am wrong. With the wind at our back Dragonsbane pitches from starboard to port in a very un-rhythmic way. If you are sitting on the port side of the boat looking out at the water over the starboard deck the ocean disappears and all you can see is the ski and then back to the ocean view when it pitches. Regardless of the motion on the ocean we are heading in the right direction and make good speed.

Best regards,


Current Position 13deg 55.58min North, 61deg 40.06min West

    • we are in Tahiti heading up to Bora Bora. I may come home in the next couple of weeks to help Barb for a while. Jacques and Adam will sail on alone to New Zealand. Jacques is looking into a job in New Zealand. there is a demand for his skills there.
