Day #572 — Sailing to the (almost bi-polar) other side of Panama

Time to say 'Goodbye' to Panama - but not before visiting the beautiful area of Bocas del Toro in West Panama. And this is a sharp contrast to the Wild-East of Panama...

Day #456: What a cruise really costs (update)

A common question in our conversations with our friends back home is: „Do you still have enough money?“ — „Well… that’s a long story….“ Could be an answer. But it isn’t.

Day #375: Confined in Isla Provedencia (before IOTA hits)

The family sailed six and a half days from Mexico to this tiny island in the West Caribbean, a hundred miles off the rough coast of Nicaragua. Provedencia is confined, and we are confined, too..

Day #358: The eye of a hurricane heads towards Yucatan

ARGO is currently anchored inside the warning cone of a potential hurricane. The abundance of information still requires a decision and bailout plans

Day #356: A forced retreat during COVID-19

When the CORONA virus hit the world, we have been forced to stop sailing, forced on anchor. Our family together with our fellow-cruisers went into an Retreat, to say the least. In the retreat iour ambitions sometimes develop afresh.

Day #267 – A decision not to cross the Atlantic in 2020

While the World is in lock-down, neither traveling nor cruising is possible, reasonable or advisable. We could move with our boat across the oceans, but getting from A to B in the shortest time is for freighters, delivery crews or regatta boats, but not the point of our Atlantic Circle, right?

Day #87 – Atlantic feelings on the Windward Canarian Islands and engine economy

We sail with the NE tradewinds to the westerly Canarian Islands and enjoy the relaxed Santa Cruz de Tenerifa. And we perform scheduled engine maintenance and reflect on engine costs.

Day #80: Top-20-list of most-loved-equipment of the ARGO crew

It is day #80 of our Atlantic Circle, and ARGO and her crew have sailed more than 2.600sm only this year. This blogpost is about the 16 items, that make us safer, feel comfortable and make cruising much easier to us. The list is subjective and fits to our boat and what we are doing. In the best case, this list helps you to detect 'stupid money' and to avoid superflous cruising expenses.
Restocking provisions in the Medina of Salé (Morocco)GoSeaborne

Day #69: Bye bye Morocco and five important learnings for cruisers

When we considered Morocco the first time as a sailing destination and we started our planning using the obvious websites (noonsite.com and the like), we remained quite ambiguous, doubtful and we were questioning if Morocco is a good destination for cruising boats.

Day #52 (Mohammedia) – A little regata? Waiting for the cold front to pass

After restocking provisions and refueling - and saying goodbye to many new friends in Sale/Rabat, we stopped on our way further south in Mohammedia to wait for a wind shift. We got plenty of time to experience and reflect on the Moroccan boarder and customs procedures.
