The Darwin Expedition:
This remarkable three week sailing adventure begins on the Caribbean side of the Panama Canal. We will be sailing on "Blue Nomad, " a robust 54 ' steel ketch that has been around the world and around Cape Horn. New owner, Paul Gregory, has completely refitted her for world voyaging, she 's a magnificent sailboat. Built by van Dam in Holland, she has a large, covered cockpit and accommodations for 8. Like all of my trips, we will share in all duties, from cooking and cleaning to full watch standing and sail handling. There are two private double cabins forward, with over and under bunks, and a large double aft. There is also a single aft and a convertible berth in the main saloon. Once the crew assembles on the 7th we will transit the canal on the 8th and 9th. Once in the Pacific, we 'll head offshore for Cocos Island, a four-day 600-mile passage. Cocos island is remote and spectacular. It is a Costa Rican National Park and rarely visited. In fact, other than the rangers, it is uninhabited. And while we will explore the lush mountainous island, it is the sea life that makes Cocos truly unique. From sea turtles to hammerhead sharks the waters are teeming with life. We will spend two days on a mooring, and then shove off for the Galapagos, a 2-½ day 400-mile passage.
