It’s hard to believe that our first offshore passage was only a year ago when we sailed from Boston to Nova Scotia as a shakedown practice during our final preparations for our one-year sailing trip.

Readers of our Caribbean sailing experiences this past winter know that we have especially enjoyed some of the less traveled, more remote islands.
