Preview - Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

On March 16th, 2013, Paragon pushed off from Oriental, North Carolina to spend 6 months sailing over 6000 nautical miles to Kinsale, Ireland.

We plan to stop and explore many exciting places along the way, including New York City, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Greenland, and Iceland. We will be filming all aspects of our voyage.

Once in Ireland we plan to hunker down for several months. Then, in January 2014, weekly episodes of Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure series will be begin.

We are Drake and Monique cruising aboard our Westsail 42 sailboat and home 'Paragon.' We aspire to sail all over the world, and to produce videos about the cruising life everywhere we go.

Fair winds, calm seas, happy sailing!

I look forward to the videos!

Looks like you are ready (all three of you). Tip of the hat to Monique, who has come a long way a short time.

Let me know when you are in RI!

Fair winds!

Re: Preview - Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Just saw Monique's blog post about your departure. Congratulations on pushing off! I assume you are in New York by now since yesterday was a perfect day to make the jump from AC.

Are you going to continue north through the sound or are you going outside? If you stop anywhere along the CT cost, post something, I'd love to swing by and say hello.

Look forward to more videos!

Fair winds!

-Eric
