Sailing Meraviglia

We sail to experience the wonderment over the horizon.

Chapter 101: The BVI’s with many friends…

On Friday, we left St. John, USVI to jump across to the British Virgin Islands.  The trip from Coral Bay to Tortola was a short one,  less than 2 hours. We needed to clear in with customs and immigration so… Continue Reading →

Chapter 100: We Love It!

Yep. We do. Specifically, I’m referring to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. When we dreamed about voyaging on a sailboat, St. John is exactly what we were picturing in our minds. It is absolutely gorgeous. Each anchorage is… Continue Reading →

Chapter 99: Now We’re Cookin’!

Current Location: St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We’re slowly circumnavigating this small island, moving from one beautiful beach to the next. Almost all of the island is part of the U.S. National Park System, so it’s great for… Continue Reading →

Chapter 98: Anxiety is genetic…

We successfully reached St. Thomas yesterday!! Hooray!  This feels like a huge accomplishment and somehow feels so appropriate to be in the place where we celebrated the start of our marriage on our honeymoon 31 years ago. We have now… Continue Reading →

Chapter 97: Let’s Talk About IT.

(This post not sanctioned by Kim.) That’s right. IT. We know you’re wondering about IT. Well, I know you’re wondering about IT. Kim says no one is wondering, but I know better. Or maybe it’s because, as a pediatrician, I… Continue Reading →

Chapter 96: Three Whole Days Off the Boat?!? What?!?!

We left Cabo Real to head to Ponce on Monday, 4/22.  It was a pretty easy trip and we arrived by early afternoon.  There is one marina there, Ponce Yacht and Fishing Club, that we were hoping to stay at… Continue Reading →

Chapter 95: Puerto Rico!

Let’s be clear: Puerto Rico is NOT a new country. It’s part of the U.S. Look it up. But it definitely has it’s own vibe. We left the Dominican Republic early Thursday for the estimated 30 hour trip to Puerto… Continue Reading →

Chapter 94: About the Food…

“What do you eat on the boat?” It’s a question we get all the time. And I mean ALL the time. The answer is easy: salt beef and hardtack. Just kidding. That was ship rations in the 19th century. Along… Continue Reading →

Chapter 93: The One Where I Go to the Dentist

The Dominican Republic is a foreign country. For us. True, it’s the third country we’ve visited, but The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos didn’t really feel “foreign”. Everyone spoke English and it felt similar to the US. The DR? Not… Continue Reading →

Chapter 92: Welcome to Country #3!

We left Big Sand Cay on Saturday, 4/6 to journey to Samana in the Dominican Republic.  We knew we needed about a 32 hour weather window to make the trip. For every trip, it is a balance of wind and… Continue Reading →
