Please post a reply in this thread with your cruising area. We are going to compile a list of the cruising areas of our members, add a drop down list to the "Update Your Profile" screen and then add it to the information displayed about each member at the top of each post so that we all can get a better understanding of who our online neighbors are.
Thanks in advance!
We live in Pensacola, Fl so our cruising grounds are the nearby waters of which there are many. We can opt for the local bays, and bayous, the intracoastal waterway and the whole Gulf of Mexico.
We're originally from Southern California and the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean. Our stuff around here is fairly shallow.
We own an O'Day 28 with a shallow draft (3' 8") keel.
My wife and I completed a cross Pacific voyage in 1998. We then owned a CT 41 ketch. Sailed from Long Beach, California down through Mexico and then across the Pacific stopping at islands in the Marquesas group, Tuomotus, and Society Islands, Tonga, Fiji and then the hurricane season in New Zealand.
We then sailed to Bundaberg Australia. We sailed around the north and eventually left from Darwin to Indonesia including Bali, and ended the voyage across from Singapore in Malaysia. Our boat was sold while we were home in the USA.
It was a wonderful adventure of a lifetime. Scarcely a day goes by that my wife or I will recall to each other some incident we experienced.
