Develop a great application or invention. Then retire early and cruise the Caribbean in the winter and the northeast in the summer. Get a slip whenever I want instead of anchoring out.

In the near tern, a trip to Nantucket. A trip to Bermuda, which doesn't have to be on our boat.

Regards,
Brad

Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

Good thread. Not sure, but a couple of things come to mind. Would like to cruise in the arctic somewhere, perhaps Greenland or Baffin Island. Also we have sailed to all of the continents except Europe. The admiral has been making noises about that.

WRT Easter Island, it is a fascinating place to visit. Like all remote islands it is so much better to go there by boat. Make sure to bring the good ground tackle and it is great fun to go ashore between surf breaks on both sides - you are close enough to talk to the surfers on each side. There is an incredibly beautiful anchorage called Ankena on the north shore, about 100 m wide with a lovely beach at the top with resurrected statues (most of the statues are still lying down). Only problem with this anchorage is that it would be a death trap with anything from the north.

Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

1. Time

2. Spend winters in Caribbean, fly home for family/holiday events. Summers day-sailing in New England.

3. 2 to 3 yr cruise. RI to England/Ireland maybe jump Nova Scotia-Greenland-Iceland, down coast through France-Spain-Portugal, into Mediterranean as far as Greece, maybe Turkey, out to Azors/Canaries, cross to Grenada, island hop north to US and up East coast back to RI. Fly home for family/holiday events along the way.

4. Spend one day, just one day, with everything caught up on my boat to-do list.

Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

1. Cross an ocean in my own boat.
2. Visit the Aleutian Island chain, must stop at Shemya and Kiska.
3. Visit Easter Island and Pitcairn.
4. Visit the Faulklands, Saint Helena and the Azores.
5. Would like to re-visit Massawa on the Red Sea but the pirate situation places this destination pretty low on the list.

Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

Great question! I've always dreamed of doing things like circumnavigating the globe, but never really thought about putting together a list that I can work towards with a realistic possibility of attaining. So, trying to keep it within the realm of actually being able to check these items off my list, I came up with the following:

1. Bareboat charter in the Greek Islands
2. Sail to Bermuda (again), but this time on my boat. (I may have to upgrade from my P-35, although a prior owner did make the trip on my Calypso)
3. Sail the coast of Maine (and possibly make it up to Nova Scotia)
4. Bareboat charter in the South Pacific.

So assuming I can get through the next few years of paying college tuition for my two daughters, this is my "realistic" list.

I stole this paragraph and save that in my iPad for future reference.

This is very much I have in mind for sailing to UK/Europe. I may opt for sailing in the inland water by way of Bordeaux. Last year, I purchased two books talking about how to transit inland water and canals in Europe, doable and fascinating. Added bonus is that my wife is likely to join me.
