Headed to Japan

Part 1: Adventures in the Atlantic and Caribbean.

It's official, we have started the long sail to Japan.
This adventure will be broken up into a few manageable segments.

First sail south enjoying the Bahamas sailing with friends to the Exumas. (260nm)
From there we'll head south to Rum Cay and into the Turks and Caicos. (310nm)
Then down south passed Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico. (370nm)
East to the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean (170nm)
South to the bottom of the Windward Island of the Caribbean (410nm)
West to the ABC's (440nm)
Then a single passage to Panama and the gateway to the Pacific (700nm)

All miles listed are the nice little paths on the charts, actual distance will be based on weather and where we stop along the way.

As we get closer to the Pacific I'll post up more about how the route goes, our first stopping place will be Hawaii for a few months then on to Japan when the trades settle in.

So, here we go... to sea...
