Our provisioning left the shelves at Grande Marche supermarket and various chandleries in St Martin almost bare : )

After completing our huge list of boat items  (just a few examples: installing new renewable energy like MMPT’s to better regulate our solar panels and get more efficiency from them, and a D400 wind generator, to repairing, maintaining rigging, systems, sails, communications & electronics, and generally deep cleaning Golden Glow) we and our Swedish friends and crew, Hasse and Ylva, are leaving St Martin today for Bermuda on the first leg of our TransAtlantic passage.  We’re excited!

You can follow our progress at http://svgoldenglow.com/where-are-we .

We expect to arrive in Bermuda in about 6-7 days (May 5/6)

  1. This leg it is rather easy to propose the Russian kind of prosperity wish sailors between: Keep seven feet under the keel!
    Regards Håkan (navigation teacher, sailing instructor and friend of Hasses and Ylvas)

    Safe sailing! Wish Bill would retire so we could be there!

    • Dear Lindy & Bill, If you can break away from work and want to come aboard for some sailing, let us know! Ellen & Rand

    How exciting. I will follow your travels with great interest. Wishing you happy sailing and good passages. ( you will love Bermuda!). Phil & Ian.

    • Thanks Philippa and Ian, We were thinking of you when we read about storm Ana, knowing you were in the Bahamas and praying you were safe, dry and comfortable. Take care and we hope to see you again when we return from the Mediterranean next winter. Ellen & Rand
