our sailing adventure California - USVI
Hi Virgin Islanders,
my husband and I are relocating to the Virgin Islands and decided to make a journey out of it. We are sailing our 28 ft sailboat (Pearson Triton) from California through the Panama Canal to USVI.

Hope to meet some of you when we get there!
Josie and Jerrad
Thank you for sharing your adventure, loved reading your blog. Which island will you be relocating to? I'm looking forward to reading your updates as you make your way here. Wishing you the best in your journey (tu)
We are planning for St. Thomas, but we are also going to check out St. Croix.
Alright, we finally got it together and did a write up of our trip across the Sea of Cortez
Thanks to everyone for the support and messages, also we have found this message board to be an invaluable resource in planning our move and hope we can give back at least a little by sharing our experience.
We put up a post about our time in Mazatlan since we are getting ready to move on to La Cruz (puerto vallarta area). The boat is back in shape and we are just waiting for the weather to calm a bit.
You can read it here
Thanks again to everyone and we will try to keep you updated as we go.
Josie & Jerrad:
What an exciting adventure! Be safe and keep the postings coming.
Our friends Pat & Colleen did a circumnavigation several years ago and kept a great log book online. If you feel bored during your trip try reading their site at www.digwave.com/simmer/simmer/htm it has some great information and insight.
I kept in contact with them throughout their journey...it felt like I was there, too.
after having too much fun snorkeling, relaxing sailing, and spending time in Banderas bay with the whales, we have finally sat ourselves down to update our sailing website and you can read it here.
We also made a short video of a pod of spotted dolphins playfully swimming along the bow.
It has been an incredible experience so far, and thanks very much for all your warm gestures, support, feedback and comments.
we thought we'd be out of Mexico by now but as I am learning, a long-term voyage on a sailboat never goes according to plan.
We are currently in our last stop in Mexico, and here are the latest updates from our journey:
Jerrad had to fly back to Los Angeles for a day to do an emergency passport renewal (an ordeal worthy enough to be our next blog post...), but we should be out of Mexico by the end of the week.
Next stop is El Salvador and Costa Rica.
Thanks for following us and for all your comments and feedback. We really appreciate it!
