After squeezing through the Torres Strait between Australia and Papua New Guinea, I sailed westward into the Indian Ocean.

Exotic stopovers included Bali, Christmas Island, Cocos-Keeling, Rodrigues, Mauritius and Reunion, before touching continental land at Richard's Bay and Durban, South Africa.

In late November, I rounded the Cape of Good Hope and landed in Cape Town, South Africa.

After a long break in South Africa, I resumed the sail westward, crossing the Atlantic Ocean with a quick stop in St. Helena before reaching the coast of Brazil.

The last portion of the journey visited Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia, Martinique, and several islands and cayes along the way.

I finally arrived to the San Blas Islands after 16 months of ocean travel - what an unforgettable moment. I had made it all the way around!
