Finally Out Here Doing It!

Hello all,

I just wanted to say thanks for all the useful posts on the Cruisers Forum. It was one of the resources we used to research gear purchases and learn how to perform repairs.

We left Florida in March on a planned 2-year circumnavigation aboard a 1990 Privilige 39 catamaran and just made it to Tahiti today.

Here's a link to our website. I've also posted a question in a Indian Ocean section, but it doesn't look like a very frequented board.

Thanks again,
S/V Pura Vida

Great site! Looks like you are behind the rest of the pack, don't worry keep up the slow pace. The first part is the best and you still have the Cooks and Niue ahead of you if you choose. Don't rush to Tonga!

have a great time. Don't worry about the speed just stay out of the hurricane zones.
Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
