Yacht Delivery from Cape Town, South Africa to Fort Lauderdale, Florida
A pinch and a punch for the first of the month as we sailed off into the infinite abyss. June 1st marks day 1 of our 52 day ocean crossing, from Cape Town, South Africa to FtLauderdale, Florida, on a 44ft Leopard catamaran. We were a crew of 3, with solo watches of 3hours on, and 6 hours off. We were blessed with an inquisitive whale friend (who swam with our boat for three days), rainbows, sunsets, dolphins, sunrises, flying fish, birds, phosphorescence and endless beautiful beautifuls. After 41 days, we stopped at the island country of grenada to rest, buy fresh fruit/veggies & fill our water tanks. Grenada is in the southeastern Caribbean Sea, also known as the "Island of Spice", because of their production of nutmeg. Which we consumed plenty of in many piña coladas. Grenada is paradise; happy, care-free people amongst a colorful lush, tropical land. Crystal clear blue water, palm trees, blossoming flowers & white sandy beaches. Grenada was all the inspiration to guide us through the last 10 days of our journey. We reached Florida safe & sound; enriched forever. 52 days of isolation, silence, & tranquility did wonders for the soul. Something we will treasure forever. We covered a distance of 6884 nautical miles, but hey, it's not the miles that count, it's how you live them. Enjoy.
