Cruising from the USA east coast to the west, via the Panama Canal, Michael and Anne Hartshorn

Blue Water Section Secretaries, Michael and Anne, crossed the Atlantic in 2010 and enjoyed four years’ cruising the US east coast, Cuba and the Bahamas before beginning the next part of their round the world adventure.

In 2015 they left the friendly Chesapeake Bay and set sail for Florida, crossing from there to the Bahamas and slowly making way down to the Great Inagua, bidding farewell to some of their favourite haunts along the way. Moving into new territory, they headed south through the Windward Passage and onto southern Cuba. The route from there took them south to the Cayman Islands, Providencia and Panama.

Preparations were made for the transit of the Panama Canal in December 2015. Once on the Pacific side they turned "right" and headed up the coast towards Mexico. After four months exploring this wonderful part of the coast, they made the trip north to San Diego, USA against the prevailing wind and current!
