29º 52.8' N81º 18.978' WMarVynHome again. It’s been a long, wonderful....nevermind, too many adjectives to put in here. It’s been incredible!about 5 years  agoShow

26º 40.614' N78º 58.002' WMarVynWith heavy hearts we left Hoffman Cay two nights ago. Kairos5 had a sail issue so we overnighted at Soldier Cay and early this am left for West End. Tonight we are in what likely is the strangest anchorage yet—-a canal in a bankrupt Gunn development at West End. Oddly enough, two other boats here before us!! Early tomorrow am it’s into the Gulf Stream for a float back to FL. about 5 years  agoShow

25º 37.422' N77º 44.634' WMarVynAnd now we are anchored at Hoffman’s Cay where we should have been last night! No bumps today—yeah!!about 5 years  agoShow

25º 44.154' N77º 48.12' WMarVynWhat a day. A predawn departure from High our world Cay, leaving the Exumas (sniff, sniff!), by Nassau, and finally to the Berry Islands. Great sailing landed us at the entry point to get behind our island a bit early. Unfortunately that meant right at low tide. We ran aground and had to wait for water to rise as our other attempts to free ourselves failed. Anchored in the dark just behind Soldier Cay instead. Tomorrow, at high water, we’ll catch up with Kaitos5 at our planned anchorage. But we’re all fine! The Berries look beautiful!about 5 years  agoShow

24º 42.93' N76º 49.812' WMarVynHighbourne Cay—-provisions, play, kids, then onward to the Berry Islands.about 5 years  agoShow

24º 32.856' N76º 47.628' WMarVynShroud Cay. Missed it last year due to time. Not so this year! This is an amazing spot with beautiful water, white beaches, mangrove rivers worthy of daily drifts for the peace alone, and, of course, rapids on the windward side! Incredible place!about 5 years  agoShow

24º 23.37' N76º 38.088' WMarVynWarderick Wells, the flagship of the Exumas Land and Sea Park. Gorgeous but we’re still hemmed in by storms. Hoping that ends tomorrow!about 5 years  agoShow

24º 18.15' N76º 32.382' WMarVynCambridge Cay—-stunning! Bubble Bath at Compass Cay yesterday was incredible. Rocky Dundas this am and Coral Garden for this afternoon. Experiences, experiences, and more experiences!!about 5 years  agoShow

24º 12.288' N76º 28.434' WMarVynMoved up for Mother’s Day. Wonderful time and quite the seafood feast at Pipe Creek but on to Rocky Dundas and bubble baths!about 5 years  agoShow

24º 12.276' N76º 28.422' WMarVynAmazing day! Started south of Black Point, did laundry at Black Point plus some light provisioning including coconut bread, sailed to Staniel, serious provisioning, diesel, then to Thinderball Grotto. The girls had a ball, found ways to swim through some of the small side holes in the cave. Marley chases fish, of course! Moved around the corner to Big Majors. Visual and radio check in with Kairos5. Tomorrow on to Pipe Creek!about 5 years  agoShow

24º 2.802' N76º 22.566' WMarVynReluctantly out of Rudder Cut, now off the backside of Great Guana. Staging for a big day tomorrow. Mariposa is nearby but silent.about 5 years  agoShow

23º 52.302' N76º 14.382' WMarVynTo one of my favorite places on the planet today—-Rudder Cut Cay. Dinner of island chicken, broccoli and cauliflower, sourdough rosemary parmesan rolls, and Marley brownies. Good night!about 5 years  agoShow

23º 31.524' N75º 45.912' WMarVynLate departure due to the intense storm overnight at Water. Through Hog Cut without a problem despite much hand wringing. Now settling into Georgetown for a few days of kid play. Then north into the Exumas!!about 5 years  agoShow

23º 1.668' N75º 42.906' WMarVynWater Cay is yet another stunner. Nurse shark under the boat nearly as soon as we anchored. A dive cut short by more shark sightings---I've never seen Clint get back in the dinghy so fast! Quite a storm overnight.about 5 years  agoShow

22º 53.04' N75º 52.128' WMarVynFlamingo Cay certainly is a beauty. Didn't find the first cave but the second cave/grotto was breathtaking. Marley's find of a blue hole with small bright orange crawfish was fun. Spent a second night with Second Star!about 5 years  agoShow

22º 26.178' N75º 49.98' WMarVynBuena Vista Cay. Yet another gorgeous anchorage. Its only human occupant is not to be found; his house clearly was destroyed by Irma and I fear he has not quite recovered. His peacocks and chickens are still around and we can hear his goats! Expecting some winds on our way up to Flamingo.about 5 years  agoShow

22º 20.214' N75º 46.836' WMarVynJohnson Cay. Undoubtedly the most quintessentially beautiful anchorage we’ve seen in some time. Incredible peace, tranquility, and...stars!about 5 years  agoShow

22º 10.248' N75º 43.644' WMarVynAnd now Duncan Town on Ragged Island in arguably the most remote area of the Bahamas. Still struggling to recover after Irma, only about 40 of the previously 100+ residents have returned.about 5 years  agoShow

21º 41.376' N73º 50.718' WMarVynHogsty Reef. One of only three atolls in the Atlantic. What an amazing stop!! Three sharks, tons of fish, beauty that just won’t quit!!about 5 years  agoShow

21º 5.082' N73º 38.784' WMarVynThree solid days on the sea from San Juan to Matthew Town, Inagua. Kairos5 sticking by. The sail went very well. Saw the Pink Dolphins and the Lone Whale--Clint's latest punk band name! Otherwise, just 24 hours of 25-30 knots of wind and 7-8 foot seas, but all is well! Funny how quickly confidence builds. Waves breaking into the cockpit? No big deal. Winds and waves pushing your boat to 13.8 knots? Whatever. Life remains good. about 5 years  agoShow

18º 27.528' N66º 5.478' WMarVynLeft paradise and found a big city. San Juan appears to have its beauty and we hope to see some of it soon. And then to Costco to get us through the Bahamas!!! Kairos5 and MarVyn still side by side.about 5 years  agoShow

18º 19.146' N65º 13.656' WMarVynMoved out of a disappointing Culebra to the ever-stunning Culebrita. Lovely sunset while the kids played with Kairos5 kids on the paddle board and we got to know the folks on the Balance and the Outremer next door. Clint always runs on the low end of society. about 5 years  agoShow

18º 18.372' N65º 17.886' WMarVynShort hop from BVI to Culebra. No whales today makes for the first passage in about six that we have not seen them! A couple dolphins will have to suffice. Still moving with Kairos5 until the Bahamas. about 5 years  agoShow

18º 18.684' N64º 37.482' WMarVynHuge day. 3am start with Kairos5 from Saint Martin to BVI at Norman Island. Trip included near miss of a small and slow sailboat at about 3:45am (Syrinx, French boat), three sperm whales, rescue of a free floating dinghy, dolphins, grabbing a ball just as the sun set behind us over St. John. Wow---full day! The girls did great! They are liking downwind sailing.about 5 years  agoShow

18º 1.95' N63º 5.88' WMarVynInto Saint Martin (Dutch side again, Simpson Bay) today. Trouble with the screecher yet again, but all's well. Met for drinks with Kairos5 and Lynette, Tim, Mac, and Sienna at the Yacht Club. Prepping for big passage tomorrow!about 5 years  agoShow

17º 54.054' N62º 51.468' WMarVynGustavia again. Amazing passage----whales at the beginning, whales (breeching, flukes, sprays, etc) at the end, barracuda, unnamed fish that escaped, two Little Tunny. Just beautiful. Rolly in the anchorage but all good!about 5 years  agoShow

17º 39.588' N61º 51.594' WMarVynAnother new island---Barbuda! Certainly a beauty but completely rearranged by Irma. Seems a little like my home beach at Matanzas Inlet, FL. There are two big rips created by the storm on what used to be a spit of land encircling Codrington Bay. Now they still flow freely with the open Atlantic/Caribbean waters nearly a year and a half later. But the pink beaches and turquoise waters make for breathtaking backdrops to the incomparable sunsets. I could stay a while.... about 5 years  agoShow

17º 0.45' N61º 45.87' WMarVynStoried English Harbor. It is quite beautiful. Here to see the sights and history and to see our good friends on Britican one last time before we leave this side of the chain.about 5 years  agoShow

17º 9.27' N61º 45.618' WMarVynBirthday trip around to the north. The area is beautiful. Long Island appears exquisite. The reefs are disastrous. Heartbreaking, but we are going to enjoy our time despite! about 5 years  agoShow

17º 5.124' N61º 53.616' WMarVynJumped to the next bay over, Hermitage Bay/Five Islands Bay. Beautiful. Scamming wifi from the resort, the only thing around. Looking forward to a morning jog on the nice roads for the planned housing to go in here over the next few years. So glad I'm seeing it now! Girls are boarding. Life is good. about 5 years  agoShow

17º 4.608' N61º 53.61' WMarVynAntigua!!! Wow, what a beautiful welcome. I think we could spend weeks and weeks. Maybe we will....over 5 years  agoShow

16º 18.492' N61º 47.802' WMarVynFrom the Saints to Deshaies in preparation for Antigua. Last French stop until St. Barth's so lots of cheese and wine on board. Turtles and green flash tonight!over 5 years  agoShow

15º 34.83' N61º 27.69' WMarVynFrom St. Pierre to Prince Rupert Bay in Dominica. Mixed feelings on being back here. Hadn't planned to be here but other boats influenced and here we are. We'll see.....MUCH busier bay than last year. Island still looks ravaged, but no new landslides that I can see. So that's good.over 5 years  agoShow

14º 44.466' N61º 10.602' WMarVynThird day of Carnaval. Spent the morning with Ventus shopping at Decathlon and Hyper U. Holy moly! Today we've moved on to St. Pierre and will watch the sunset to the sounds of the Devil Carnaval. over 5 years  agoShow

14º 5.43' N60º 57.762' WMarVynLeft Bequia this am at 6:00. Arrived in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia at 5:30. Good trip. Girls are now moving through these passages like pros! Tomorrow...on to Martinique!over 5 years  agoShow

13º 0.174' N61º 14.436' WMarVynAnd on to Bequia! Blustery day--saw 10 ft waves off the northern tip of Canouan and 33 knots just south of Bequia. Fun, fun, fun!

12º 28.932' N61º 28.944' WMarVynHappy Valentine's Day to us! (And to all of you!) We have moved on from mainland Grenada to Carriacou and are moored with Britican for the night at Sandy Island.

16º 18.258' N61º 47.472' WMarVynOvernight in Montserrat--such a shame not to have been able to stay as it was gorgeous and I'm sure it's worth a stop.
