March 24, 2012 we left Fort Pierce, Florida to begin a 12-month journey around the Great Loop (eastern third of the United States and portions of Canada) returning 6,000+ miles later. In April 2013 we sold the boat to Jack and Sara, who re-named her "Ithaka".
Today at 8am Jack and Sara and pulled out of Fort Pierce headed north to begin Ithaka's second Loop, their first. Congratulations Jack and Sara! We wish you adventure, fun, happiness, safety, learning and hordes of new friends! We drank a toast to you and King Neptune with our first cup of coffee this morning.
