March 23 Once around the North Atlantic
Sail with Victor aboard Maravilha from Padanaram Harbor on a 9000-mile loop around the North Atlantic Ocean, making stops on the islands of Madeira, Gran Canaria, St Lucia and Horta-Faial-Azores. This story is about fulfilling a life-long dream to cross the Atlantic Ocean and return home again; the emotion of making landfall on the very island from which Victor’s family emigrated; and the stunning beauty of our planet as experienced from a small boat in the middle of a large ocean.
April 6 The Great American Loop
