    Dominique and his Amazing Circus Cats

    If you walk a bit further South along the waterfront, you’ll soon come to the best show in Key West. At first, it is a bit unprepossessing – what is this grey-haired, scraggly man wearing outrageous cat socks doing with all those cages?

    A Look Back: Cayman to Key West

    We are here in Key West! Our sail lasted only three days, a short passage. The storm helped push us along; in fact, we clocked out at an all time high of 13.3 knots! I have never had so much fun puking, and would do it all again in a heart beat (may try a different nausea medication though).

    A Thick Black Line Obscuring the Horizon

    … A thick black line obscured the horizon, where just minutes before was nothing but grey overcast. We quickly rolled the yankee and got a first reef in the main before it hit, with horizontal rain and steady winds blowing 40-45 kts stinging our eyes.

    The Wreck of the Teignmouth Electron

    [In 1968], when the Sunday Times of London announced that it was sponsoring the first ever non-stop around the world sailing race, it wasn’t just the race, it would be the first time anyone had accomplished such a feat.

    Last day on board Sea Dragon

    Today was the day. The last one we have aboard Sea Dragon. Feelings shift between bliss and hope for a shower with hot, high-pressured water (a commodity not yet found among the ship). While others, long for that first cold beer to squelch the lukewarm [...]

    Aloha Friday! The Adventure Continues. . .

    Like most things that involve the ocean and nature, expecting the unexpected is almost a given. Things rarely go as planned, unless you are lucky. We were not so lucky. Today was planned to be an exploration of Cayman Brac, kite mapping, finding the Teignmouth Electron, [...]
