Sailing Around The World

Day 39 Passage to BVI “Back to the Beginning”

Its so unreal to be sailing back were I began two and half years ago. Its been a long haul and I am excited to have this 40 day passage under my belt. Cary and I are about 70 miles from Virgin Gorda BVI. We should make a landfall sometime tomorrow morning and hopefully clearance formalities will be painless. We are looking forward to enjoy a beer, burger, and then sleep for 8 hours straight for the first time in over a month. The wind is a bit on the lite side so I hope we can keep up our speed but we will see.

Current Position: 22:06UTC, 17deg 51.2min N, 63deg 29.7min W, SOG 6kts, COG 314deg-M, WS 10 -20kts, Swell <1m, DR 67.9, 1017mb

Thanks,

Jacques & Cary

    I have been follwoing your journey all two and a half years. I belive it was a small aricle in the Antigo Daily Journal that first brought me to your blog. It has been very fun to follow you around the world. It has been a learning experience for me as you have introudced us to many foreign, distant and exoctic lands you traveled to. I was constantly pulling out my globe to see where you were and googling the different islands you had landed on. It would me my pleasure to meet you one day over a tall galss of rum. Congratulations for safely completing your trip. Many people only dream about what you just accomplished. Welcome back. Hopefully you can catch the Packer game on a beach bar TV this Sunday.
