 Accidental Cruiser in the West Indies


Puerto Rico to the Bahamas on Kia Orana (38 images)
Starting from the mega-marina in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, we joined Dick and Liz Wood on Kia Orana, their 36' PDQ Catamaran for a trip back to the Chesapeake Bay. Our jounal entries from the trip are found here and here. The trip's ignoble ending is described here. Neither the weather nor the boat co-operated in this adventure, but we had many memorable adventures.
