Dickie and Helen bought S/V Harmony, after an exhausting 8 week search across Florida for a sailboat. She will (hopefully) take them from Highland Beach FL, home to Woods Hole ...
May 01, 2009: In September we decided to head north again partly to escape the ravages of hurricane Hannah as it made it’s way north up the coast, and partly to finish sailing the eastern seaboard of the US, adding the waters of New Hampshire and Maine to the states we have visited aboard Harmony. We sailed up Buzzards Bay and through the Cape Cod Canal, our first trip under the canal bridges instead o... » read more30 posts (7906 words) 151 photos 6 comments
Starting in Hilton Head Island, SC and traveling to the Chesapeake Bay and back.
May 01, 2009: 7-09-08 We’re on the last leg of our journey. We had a nice dinner at Morgan Creek Grill with Bonnie, catching up and enjoying the company. We’ve promised to keep in touch and hope she and her husband will come to visit. Our last evening was quiet as for some strange reason all the boats were obeying the “No Wake” zone in front of the marina. ... » read more40 posts (34153 words) 139 photos 23 comments

April 12, 2012: This is an extra entry to our 2008 blog to hope that everyone had a peaceful holiday season and that all is going well in 2009. After a six-week hiatus from sailing (but not from the boat or traveling) in Fernandina Beach, we have resumed our maritime adventures and are now in south Florida. I have started a new blog for the next leg of our travels “Florida to Panama 2009&rdqu... » read more41 posts (41596 words) 216 photos 21 comments

July 15th 2009 we move aboard S/V Harmony for a year. We will be hanging around cape cod and the islands for the rest of the summer, then heading south to the Florida Keys for ...
June 01, 2010: Heading south again from Marsh Harbor we sailed about 25 miles to Little Harbor, the last stop in the protected Sea of Abaco before the 50 mile jump across the 12000 foot deep Northeast Providence Channel to the island of Eleuthera. We visited Eleuthera about 13 years ago, just after we got married and stayed in a resort for the whole week without leaving the compound, or seeing any of th... » read more40 posts (12706 words) 220 photos 14 comments
Blog by Clay and Galit sailing Villainy from New York City to Miami, Keys and Bahamas, Fall 2009 - Spring 2010.
June 04, 2010: Little Woody was great and we highly recommend him. He had great stories of the disasters on the reef (good for business) and celebrities that use his service (good for business). And he brought us a carrot cake and 6 johnny cakes that his wife makes (great for business)! The passage was uneventful and I stored the track on my chartplotter. Comparing it to the recommende... » read more71 posts (23174 words) 184 photos 14 comments

March 20, 2010: I will try once again to post our final blog for Cool Breeze Sails South. In spite of working on it last night and trying to upload photos I made the mistake of hitting the back button which wiped out all my carefully chosen words, and since it was late, I gave up and went to bed. So here we go again . . .. I rose early on our last day on the water and witnessed a beautiful sunrise o... » read more38 posts (26694 words) 160 photos 26 comments
Come aboard with Will and Bill Hubbard and the crew of the C&C Baltic 46 Dawn Star as we race 2975 nautical mles from Newport, RI to the Lizard, UK in the 2011 edition of the Tr...
18.08.2011: 7/16We’ve gotten the provisional race results and the answer is Dawn Star has one her division! After sailing 3000 nautical miles, spread far between a northern route and a southern route; a mere 53 minutes was the difference between victory and the runner up. Looking back, we could have made or lost that time in countless places during the nineteen day battle against the elements and o... » Mehr...45 Einträge (10670 Wörter) 3 Fotos 20 Kommentare
