Since leaving England in July 2016 we have sailed;
2016 – down the coast of Atlantic Spain and Portugal, The Madeira Islands, The Canary Islands, Cape Verde Islands, across the Atlantic Ocean
2017 – The Caribbean (St Lucia, Martinique, Dominica, The Grenadines, Grenada, Bonaire, Aruba), Panama, through the Panama Canal, across the Pacific to The Marquesas, The Tuamotus Islands, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Suwarrow (The Cook Islands), Samoa, Tonga and New Zealand
2018 – New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Australia
2019 – Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia
2020 – Malaysia, Thailand, West Sumatra (Indonesia) where we became stuck for over a year because of Covid causing the countries on our route to close their borders. (We had planned to cross the Indian Ocean to South Africa by the end of the year stopping at Cocos Keeling, Chagos, The Seychelles and Madagascar before landfall in South Africa but everywhere was shut.)
2021 – Crossing the Indian Ocean, Seychelles, South Africa.
2022 – The plan is to cross the Southern Atlantic from South Africa to Namibia, then across via St Helena to South America and the Caribbean , where we will cross our outbound track.
2023 – To be confirmed. We need something to talk about at sea and this is a favourite topic of conversation.
Our careful log of the number of miles sailed got lost somewhere mid-pacific where the days and miles blurred and we decided all that really mattered was how much we are enjoying the journey.
