Greece - Florida delivery trip. We've made it.
we have just finished our peregrination. It took almost 4 months to deliver the boat to the USA and we've made it successfully. 6800 NM: Pireus (Greece) - Palermo (Italy/Sicily) - Gibraltar (Spain) - Las Palams (Canaries) - Mindelo (Cabo Verde) - ST. Thomas (USVI) - Beaufort (USA).
After leaving Las Palmas we made a short stop in lovely Mindelo, then 18 days of a peaceful ocean crossing, checking in to the US in USVI and another week to reach Beaufort, South Carolina.
Generally, it was the greatest experience of my life, to spend as much time on the water as in the shipyards and marinas. We have managed with so many technical issues, that we nearly became engineers. Autopilot started getting crazy on the way to Cabo Verde, so since then, we had to be very concentrated on the watches.
All in all, the new owner and his family were very happy to finally welcome us and we had a great dinner together. We also left a long list of "to-do's".
Now, Hanna has got another two deliveries from USVI ahead, I came home to Poland.
all the best, Julia
