Couple of questions, if we can.

Where did crew member #3 join? I thought you set out from New England with just you and Mo.

Why two dinks?
Hi Minnewaska, Greetings from Paragon in Reykjavik, Iceland! We docked here yesterday after a hellacious sail from Greenland. Monique and I pushed off from Oriental, North Carolina last March with 1 crew Adam who stayed with us until Atlantic City, NJ. We then daysailed up the coast to Boston. Eanna flew from Dublin to Boston to join us on May 23rd and we are sailing with him all the way to his hometown of Kinsale, Ireland. We generally prefer to use the rowing dinghy to get to shore, and love using it with a sailing rig to explore the various ports. We also have a RIB and plan to use it with a 10hp outboard and 100 gallon water bladder to ferry potable water to Paragon at anchor. We are about to push off for Ireland at the next available weather window where we hope to be allowed to spend the winter repairing the boat and editing our video series. Happy sailing!
Drake
