In Florida for Hurricane Season

image008Five months have passed since we have updated our website with logs and photos. In February we sailed south into the Caribbean, arriving in the southern Bahamas in early March. Next year we will publish our logs and photos to fill this gap.

We loved our month in the Exumas in the Bahamas. The weather between cold fronts was great, the Bahamians gave us a great welcome, and we met 12 other Whitby 42’s or Brewer’s. The first of April we sailed back to Florida and up the coast to the St. John River just south of the border with Georgia to haul Pilgrim out of the water for hurricane season. We had sailed her from Nova Scotia (July 2013) down the US east coast and into the Caribbean for a delightful 11 months.

We are back in Toronto, but will be spending most of the summer in Michigan with children, grandchildren and working on a trawler/tug we plan to purchase. We will return to Florida in November and follow the thorn-less path to Trinidad (Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Virgin Islands, the Windward and Leeward Islands) next winter.

We have updated our website with logs and more photos from the Bahamas and Florida, March – May 2013.
