So far, I’ve divided the adventure into three phases:
- Phase 1 (April to mid-May) : Preparing us and the boat to leave Fort Lauderdale.
- Phase 2 (mid-May to July 9th) : Sailing the boat from Fort Lauderdale to Grenada. Grenada was a big destination because while we were north of Grenada, the boat was not insured against named storms (like Alberto, Beryl, Chris, and Debby).
- Phase 3 (now until TBD) : Working on the boat in Grenada and Trinidad. We’re in the second round of repairs and maintenance, fixing and improving things that we discovered during our 2700 miles of sailing in phase 2.
