Our blogging hiatus is over! We have new electronics and a new video!
Early this year we had an great passage from Brava, Cape Verde to Salvador, Brazil. The first minute of our new video shows clips from day one of an 18 day voyage. We set sail on a very wavy day, and had fresh winds for three days. I think we have more footage from day one, as I was trying to distract myself from being seasick. We also took film of our favorite sunrises, sunsets, and moments at sea as we settled into the Northeast Tradewinds, crossed the Doldrums without delay, and caught the Southeast Tradewinds to Brazil. Our average daily run was 112 miles, and we look back on the passage fondly; the rhythm of life at sea was ideal.
Many thanks to Jason McIntyre and the band Lemont for allowing us to pair our videos with their songs. Their new album is awesome. Find more of their music at lemontmusic.com.
Thanks for watching!
