Sailing Around the Gulf of Mexico.

Hello Sailnet members,

After an extensive search online regarding a documented trip around the circumference of the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat, I came came up with nothing.. I was wondering if there are any sailors in the community who have/ or have known other sailors that have sailed the circumference of the Gulf of Mexico? Any feedback on the matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

To quote Mark Twain:
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the things you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Re: Sailing Around the Gulf of Mexico.

I've done Brownsville to the keys, but not the keys, bay of Campeche to Brownsville. I heard of a couple that sailed their trailer sailor from keys, along the US gulf coast, to Yucatan Campeche side, but I don't think they did the hop over Cuba to the keys( to complete the circle). I can't find any reference of them online, this was before the blogging era.

I think the idea of circumnavigating the gulf is not as tempting as other bodies of water due to the oil rigs, and how shallow it is, and the gulf stream interference. Not that it cannot be done.
