Sailing to St. LuciaAh, the warm, sweet waters of the Caribbean Sea. It's good to be back!

This is just a sum-up blog of the Atlantico Project, with random pictures from Brazil, Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia and Martinique. I finally disembarked from "Strega", the yacht I had been sailing on since Australia while on an Around-the-World sailing rally. We came in 2nd over the finish line in St. Lucia.

Wish me luck - as you head this, I am sailing westward once again. This is the final passage of the adventure and the next time I see land, it will be a shore I have seen before. I'm headed to where it all began in December 2007 - the San Blas of Panama! (Remember Mola Madness?)

After a short stay to stock up on molas and bananas, we will be headed to the Canal. I expect to cross the imaginary line which marks my circumnavigation before the end of April, and will raise a glass of champagne to each of you who have followed and supported me throughout this journey - thanks for helping make it happen!
