The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity…

Amelia Earhart

I can’t begin to describe how amazing it is to be aboard Rocinante once more.  As many of you know, we started this process many years ago – specifically, we took our “test run” back in 2006/2007 spending a bit over 10 months aboard Rocinante to more or less confirm that this […]

Rocinante gets a scrub down
It was the perfect day for a scrub down, so I mounted my nifty new GoPro on the piling and we went to work! It took us the better part of the day, but you get to see it all in 27 seconds! We hope you enjoy our little video […]

Rocinante gets a scrub down

August 1 – 31, 2005 We awoke to gray skies and a forecast of afternoon thunderstorms… time to re-think our plans. After a lot of soul searching, we decided we had truly enjoyed the trip thus far and we shouldn’t push our luck. As I think I had already mentioned, […]

looking down from inside the Pilgrim Monument
August 1 – 31, 2005 Sunday, August 28, 2005 We awoke to yet another perfect day… this is really starting to get annoying 😉 We spent the better part of the morning (after breakfast of course) pouring over our charts and listening to the marine weather forecast trying to figure […]

Rocinante in Elizabeth City, NC
It’s an interesting philosophical question,  asked often enough, that I can’t help but jump in and try to answer. Now,  sailors, are a passionate bunch and will spend hours on end debating everything from the most mundane to the most esoteric of  topics!  One such topic is; what makes the best cruising boat? […]

Is Rocinante our boat or our home?

It’s always an interesting conversation when we discuss route / trip planning with our non-sailing friends. They simply have a hard time wrapping their heads around the fact that we really don’t know where we will be at any given point in time beyound a day or so from the […]

Are we there yet?!

Buoy marking the approach to Cuttyhunk and the turn up Buzzards Bay 4
August 1 – 31, 2005 Friday, August 26, 2005 – Buzzards Bay Let’s see, where did we leave off? Ah yes, the trip up BUZZARDS BAY! (creepy music in the background… flash of lightning… clap of thunder) We awoke Friday morning to yet another beautiful day, hailed the pump-out boat […]

Linguine with Clam Sauce coming right up! 4
This is, by far, my favorite incarnation of Linguine with Clam Sauce! I’ve played with these basic ingredients for years and finally settled on what you see below. Please trust me and do not omit the anchovy fillets; that’s right, even if you “hate” anchovies please use them… you will […]

Ada at the helm heading for Fishers Island 2
August 1 – 31, 2005 Monday, August 22, 2005 – Destination: Fishers Island 2:00AM sounded like a good idea at the time, but reality quickly set in and we figured what the heck, so we’ll fight the tides a bit… we got up around 6:15, made a pot of coffee, […]
