Anchored out in Falmouth is Fun
A new world record set
These three ladies rowed across the Atlantic in 42 days, 7 days, and 17 minutes. They smashed the previous women’s record by seven days! The finish line is in English Harbor at Nelson’s DockYard. Their arrival was amazing to witness. Take a look at this incredible event here:
Left to right: Charlotte Irving, 31 , Abby Johnston, 32, and Kat Cordiner, 42 after crossing the Atlantic Ocean in their 25-foot rowboat, “Dolly Parton.” Kat has incurable cervical cancer and is believed to be the first cancer patient to row the Atlantic. They are raising money for cancer research in England.
Walking Falmouth to Nelson’s Dockyard is required daily

Life on a Boat off Antigua
Thank you IslandSpirit
Radeen and I always seem to enjoy the simple life around Antigua. We both agree that this island is our favorite of all the Caribbean Islands. Yes, the check-in and check-out are very time-consuming, but that is forgotten when you enjoy the beautiful beaches and historic towns. The yachts that call into Antigua seem to agree as there are many that stop here for services and repairs. Sadly, the pandemic of covid-19 has hit all of this hard, as we are seeing so few yachts when compared to years past. People worldwide are hurting from the decline in travel.
Our goal is to sail our boat back to the Chesapeake Bay by mid May so we can enjoy the boat this summer. We find that it usually takes us two-plus weeks to put the boat away and 2-3 weeks to get her back up and running, so we have decided to take these 4-5 weeks and simply keep the boat running. No storage. For now, these are our well-known destinations ahead.
- St. Barth’s
- St. Martin
- British Virgin Islands
- United States Virgin Islands
- Puerto Rico
- Turks and Caicos
- USA, Florida to Maryland

Love your itinerary for the voyage back to Rock Hall…looking forward to lots more photos
Your site claims I posted at 11:39 but my clock here in Sarasota claims its 6:39…what time zone are you in?
My server is in two locations: Texas and UK. It might be that reason
Really enjoying these photo essays and seeing the places you visit. Thanks!
Hayden and Radeen – Greetings from snowy PA! Your posts and pics are absolutely great and we always look forward to the next one. The adventures and experiences you’ve had with Island Spirit are simply amazing!! We wish you safe travels on land and sea–always!
We miss Sabbatical, think of her often, and hope that she has had half the fun Island Spirit has. If you see #156 someday, please give her a pat for us?
Perhaps we’ll see you in Rock Hall one of these days–we visit occasionally.
Thanks for sharing all of your experiences and knowledge! Fun and very interesting…………!
Be well! Sue and Tommy
Love the photos. What a contrast between there and here (southern DE) Blizzard conditions here! What an accomplishment for the women that rowed across the Atlantic. Incredible! Stay safe…smooth sailing.
Finally getting organized enough to leave you a comment! Your photos are beautiful and I’m glad you’re enjoying tamer weather produced by the nor’easter in the US!
