Tenacious spent two nights of R&R in Bermuda, with the crew visiting the delightful Tobacco Bay and the pink coral beaches for welcome swims and snorkels in the warm clear water. There were also ferry trips to the Historic Dockyard, which includes the National Museum of Bermuda, across from the island’s capital, Hamilton. Here some […]

Tenacious continued on its northerly course to Bermuda. With sightings of very few ships – no more than three or four – we seemingly had the western end of the Atlantic to ourselves. But if the ocean was quiet, there was plenty of activity on the boat herself. A daily 0730 keep fit class run […]

Greetings from Tenacious! After a long sunny day of motoring yesterday, we were treated to a dinner of Moroccan lamb (and stuffed peppers for the veggies!) prepared with the assistance of Captain Barbara, since Stretch, the Cook’s Assistant, had the afternoon off. After dinner, all the voyage crew convened in the lower mess for a […]

Marvellous meteorological Maikel taught us how the wind blows, Pressure high and low and how the earth spins so.   Saturday night with the shooting stars, Jupiter, Venus and Mars.   From the skies to our surprise, a flying fish flopped on deck. We put it to bed in the thermometer shed, for the next […]

Hello everyone from the becalmed waters of the Atlantic. Yesterday afternoon began with handing all of the square sails to prepare for the fact that we would have no wind. Ulla, Rosie, Hannah and Katy braved a before dinner climb to the very top of the main mast, believe it or not they were able […]

We left Anguilla mid-morning on a northerly course towards Bermuda. In a light wind, we set 15 sails and were a stunning sight, making a steady 4-5 knots. As night fell, the stars came out in their thousands, with the Plough and the Southern Cross clearly visible. The crew were then treated to a spectacular […]

A-hoy there! Continuing from our last entry, the crew sailed Tenacious through Tuesday night and the following morning until we arrived at the Caribbean island of Anguilla. We anchored off Road Bay beach around 2pm and crew were ferried ashore in the ribs for an afternoon off to explore the island. Much to the surprise […]

Greetings from Antigua!  The crew joined mid-afternoon yesterday and, after introductions to new shipmates and some catching up for those have sailed together previously, our  training commenced. The Captain had the crew join early as she wanted to sail the 29th.  This morning we awoke to a glorious sunrise and breakfast on deck in Falmouth […]

And so all good things come to an end. In the distance we can see our final destination approaching, Antigua and more specifically Falmouth Harbour where we will anchor in a couple of hours, and then go alongside in the morning. 24 hours ago we were sailing past Dominica where hurricane damage of the forest […]

May 21st and Forward Starboard is reporting in for the final time.  We are fast approaching our final destination and our time aboard Tenacious will too soon be coming to a close. We have kept busy at sea as we’ve travelled past some of the eastern Caribbean islands. After motoring out of Bequia and past St. […]

Sargassum. Floating garlands of golden sea flora welcoming us to the Caribbean. Intriguingly, the seas have been full of this yellow, brown seaweed for many days. Where does it come from? How can there be so much of it? We arrived in Bequia, a welcomingly small island, part of St Vincent & The Grenadines – […]

Day 39 of the mission – Forward Starboard again at the helm and blog controls. 5,500 nautical miles now covered…phew! Nearly all our watch are dead, except Joe who has eluded his killer so far. Today we are motor sailing at 10 knots plus with most of our sails set – looking good for our […]
