Everyone is on the move — which is a sure sign that the world is getting back to normal! 🔹 I wake up every morning and check to see where these hearty souls have gotten over (my) night. 🔹 It’s no surprise that @johnkretschmersailing is having the fastest passage— cranking out 180+ NM days going from St. Thomas to Solomons Island, MD USA.🔹Shown in order of likely arrival. 🔹 @the_wynns sailing from Tonga to New Zealand (with a stop on Minerva Reefs)🔹 #johnkretschmer (seen here wearing a GnT Sailing hat 😎)🔹 @sailingmillennialfalcon going from St. Martin to the Azores (with a stop in Bermuda) 🔹 @ryan_and_sophie_sailing sailing from Bonaire to the Azores (currently stopped in Bermuda for a quick rest) 🔹 @sailingyachtflorence going from Indonesia crossing the Indian Ocean starting today 🔹 It gives us so much motivation as we finish our refit to watch these voyagers make the miles happen. Fair winds, y’all!🔹 #sailing #sail #sailingcouple #offshoresailing #vitaminsea #yacht #yachting #bluewatersailing #offshore #oceanlife #saltyvibes #sailingadventure #gntsailing #boatlife #sailinglife #sailinginstagram #sailstagram #sailingyoutube #voyager #atlanticocean #pacificocean #indianocean
