S/V Boundless has reached its southernmost point on this voyage: Prickly Bay on the south coast of Grenada. This juncture seemed like an appropriate time to read out some statistics on our travels.
We are now 1,972 nautical miles away from our northernmost point, Somes Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine.
Since originally leaving Annapolis, Maryland in July 2017, we have covered 3,829 miles under the keel. We have around 3,100 miles to go before we get back to Annapolis at the end of June 2018.
Our longest continuous time at sea was St. Georges, Bermuda to Jolly Harbour, Antigua at 957 miles over 6 days.
Of our 238 total nights aboard, we have spent:
– 124 at anchor (52%)
– 62 at a marina (26%)
– 37 on a mooring ball (16%)
– 15 underway at sea (6%)
Our “sleeping for free” nights at anchor or underway at sea have drastically improved from 34% while in the US to 83% outside the US.
We have stopped in 62 different places, with the longest stay by far at 27 nights anchored off Sainte-Anne, Martinique. The shortest being Rodney Bay, St. Lucia for 13 hours – just long enough to sleep and then move on.
And we’ve done lots of activities:
– 13 hikes
– 19 museums, gardens, and forts
– 7 snorkeling trips
– 4 theatrical productions
You can look forward to updated and expanded stats once we complete our voyage this summer!
