3,514 nautical miles !

As we complete nearly one year of cruising and living aboard our sailboat, I wanted to reflect on some summary statistics. We take a lot of digital photos as we travel and this year we set a record in photos and in nautical miles.

Here is the summary:



How Far did we SAIL?

May 2011….Crew on Larking About, an Island Packet 40: Bermuda to Maryland……………..700 nm
June-Sept 2011….Sail Island Spirit: Maryland to Maine back to Maryland……………………1,563 nm
Oct 2011 – May 2012…Sail Island Spirit: Maryland to Florida to Abacos to Maryland…..3,514 nm

Total Miles traveled in this first year of cruising ………………………………………5,777 nautical miles!
Note: You can see our Google Map of the ICW to Bahamas trip here.

How many Photos did we take?

Summer Maryland to Maine…………4,405 photos
ICW south to Florida…………………..4,915 photos
Bahamas……………………………………3,171 photos
ICW north back to Maryland………..1,333 photos

TOTAL PHOTOS TAKEN…………13,824 photos!

  • Of these 13,824 photos, we blogged 2,146 photos here on this blog.
  • Of these 2,146 photos, we selected 318 best photos and created our VIDEO PHOTO ESSAY HERE.
    • NOTE: I have a typo in this video of 2,514 nm, it was 3,514 nautical miles.

What Cameras do we have?

  1. Canon EOS D30 with 300 mm lens and a 28-75 mm lens.
  2. Canon PowerShot SX130 which is a 12.1 megapixel camera
How do we process photos?
  • We use Google’s Picasa photo application and we store all photos locally on our own laptops and portable USB drives.
  • We process each blog photo down to 1024 x 768 image size.
  • We upload these images into the blog and have them presented at medium size
  • Blog pictures can be clicked on and then they are presented full screen size.
What is next?
  • We have enjoyed this first year’s planned adventure so much that we both have decided to do it AGAIN next fall.  After the ICW and Florida, we will explore the Exumas and lower Bahamas and then come back north into the Abacos. 
  • We both agree….there is no better life than cruising aboard our boat!
