Our intention is not so much to “sail around the world”, but to “sail to see the world”, so the plan is very much a work in progress.
Our journey will begin early in 2016, setting out from Kemah, TX across the Gulf of Mexico to Florida, and from there across to Cuba. After that, back to the Keys and head up the east coast for the summer. Once the weather starts to cool, we intend to head back down the coast over to the Bahamas and the Caribbean for the winter.
The following year, our plan is to make the Atlantic crossing, and spending time exploring the countries of the Mediterranean and Baltic regions. Then back across the Atlantic to cruise the Eastern Caribbean before heading through the Panama Canal to start over with the Pacific – crossing to New Zealand, Australia on through the Indian Ocean and up through the Red Sea to the Mediterranean to complete the circumnavigation.
One of our hopes is that we will be able to spend some time in a variety of countries, learning more about them and finding volunteer projects to work on while we are there.
