The story began in June 2010 when L’Esprit de la Mer sailed from her home port,Milford Haven in south west Wales.Since then Penny and I have sailed south via the Azores,Canaries,Cabo Verde to cross Atlantic and Equator to reach Brasil.We sailed south as far as Ilha Grande and then north recrossing equator to Trinidad.
After a season exploring the Lesser Antilles we are ready to resume our passage west and in the next weeks will head west for Panama,the Pacific and New Zealand.
