3,000 nautical miles later, here they are! The America-Europe crossing from Miami to the Azores was an extraordinary challenge. The route was more complicated and the journey more difficult due to intense weather conditions. They faced a fierce storm, relentless rain, waves up to 5 meters, and powerful currents reaching 46 knots for extended periods. Arriving with no fuel in the tank and no wind on the island of Flores in the Azores was mind-blowing and nerve-wracking, both for the crew and the...

We have explored nearly every cove of Harbour Island and larger Eleuthera , unoccupied when the first British settlers arrived in the 17th century. The Queens Bath (a collection of natural pools) on the latter is quite extraordinary. Windermere Island, which is joined to Eleuthera by a bridge, is where we spent an awesome day on the beach. There are five miles of golden sand, peaceful lagoons and fiery sunsets. Over the decades, Windermere Island has retained its reputation of being home to...

Shroud Cay: The first significant island in the Exuma Cays Park is Shroud Cay, a curious 3-mile-long isle fringed by coral reefs with a heartland of mangroves and creeks. These areas offer really outstanding exploration by kayak, paddleboard or dinghy (if you're careful) through the mangrove creeks from the Exuma Bank side through to a gorgeous ocean beach on Exuma Sound. Trails from the beach to the top of the hill are clearly identifiable and you can climb to the top and take in a spectacular...

Yesterday we arrived in Long Island Bahamas after a trip of more than 230 NM from Provo, Turks and Caicos. We left the Caicos Banks with just 1m under the keel –it was an adrenaline-pumping sail! Think of the Caicos Bank as a 60-nm wide, circular, reef-fringed atoll. Water depths on the Bank run from around 6 meters/20 feet to 0 MLW. Proven transit routes carry about 2.4 meters/8 feet. Much of the Bank remains unsurveyed. Whatever the skill level, the prudent sailor will ensure that visual...
