Yesterday we went for a daytrip around Samoa. First we went to go see some giant clams on the south-west end of Samoa. At first we saw only medium sized ones but after looking around we saw huge clams the size of boulders. I dove down to see them and found one the size...

Early one morning I woke up to the sound of my mother waking me up. We where going to see rays! We were excited but very tired. Once we got our swimming gear ready we set off for the stingrays. We weren’t quite sure where the stingrays congregated, so we looked and loo...

Today I have been thinking about the times and places we have arranged to meet since Simon and I have known each other.

Like that time in Hanoi, Vietnam. Simon went over to teach there- it is now over 20 years ago - and I joined him there a few months later. In fact, I...

I'm very proud of Caspar, Nina and Maria who have taken to swimming with sharks like water off a duck's back. Last week it was screams of horror when we saw a fin cruising around the boat. What a difference a week makes! Now there's screams of delight and then diving i...

On 3rd February Cam, Felipe and myself left Panama bound for Polynesia. The crossing from Vista Mar Marina in Panama to Atuona harbour on Hiva Oa in the Marquesas Islands took us 33 days. We covered 4100 miles, so that means we averaged 5.1 knots. While that's slow, it...

Today I'm going to review some of the islands we visited to in the BVI's. We stayed here with my grandad who visited from UK.

Peter island

My favourite island, Peter island was nice because the bay had no wind and no waves (probably the only place in the world...

As we anchored in Marigot bay, St Martin this morning and watched turtles swimming  around the boat, Simon suddenly spotted something swimming/floating in the water near us.

Amazingly, it was a brown dog swimming away from the shore and quickly being dragged to the open...

Well, most of you are used to seeing lovely photos I normally put on this blog or Facebook - generally we are sailing somewhere nice and warm with the sun shining, blue skies, a fresh breeze in Antares' sails, wind in our hair and sun kissed faces!


Life of a cruise...

Dominica is a former British colony positioned between the french islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe. It has been hit by hurricanes last year. Approaching Dominica from Martinique, the devastation of the hurricane Irma is visible – the trees are broken, lots of veget...

As we said good byes to Tanicka, Kiki and Robo in St Lucia, we were keen to move on to another island as we were missing them a lot!

Martinique surprised us. It very different to the other Caribbean islands. Main reason - it is a part of France  - A visit to Decathlon,...

My sister Tanicka, niece Kiki and her dad Robo (TKR) arrived at the end of March to join us for 2 weeks in St Lucia. We were so excited to see them! We sailed to Marigot Bay from Bequia in a long passage, passing the majestic Pitons on the coast of St Lucia.
