Be Accurate or Beware!

I’m so avidly and enthusiastically following Crazy Daisy’s adventures with my boys in the South Pacific, I can barely wait for their news each day; this is a journey where they continually report a blissfully exhilarating, wonderful time, the best yet in Daisy’s history. Gone (it would appear) are the horror stories with tales of […]

And Then Paul…

Falling Sails and The Italian Chef…

My most recent email from Captain Bob, received this-morning. Bare in mind they are 10 hours behind us in the UK, and 5 hours behind the USA, which leaves me in a permanent state of confusion trying to figure out what time it is with them. They’re going to bed as I’m getting up, it’s […]

Party Time in the Marqueses

This-morning I received this email from Bob. It sounds as though they’re having a blast, I’m so wishing I was there. Oh well, I’m really happy that they’re all having so much fun… I am Safely in the Marquesas after 3000 miles of open water. The terrain is stunning and dramatic. The Polynesian peolpe are […]

At Last

Daisy has arrived at the Marqueses, and is on her way to Nuka Hiva, expecting to arrive tomorrow morning (Thursday April 11th). The weather has continued to be calm and peaceful with only 4 or 5 knots of wind, so the sail has been very slow, but the crew are all well and looking forward […]

Daisy Update

With only 670 miles left to go, Daisy should arrive in the Marqueses in the next four to five days. There’s very little wind, so the going is pretty slow, but they’re sailing under blue, blue skies with flat calm seas. Dolphins are jumping and showing off their acrobatic skills to Daisy’s crew, I wish […]
