Setting out today! Two of Boston’s finest sailors – Dave Kohn and Mike O’Brien – are joining us for our longest passage of our voyage, Pacific passage of 3000 nm from the Galapagos to the Marquesas.
We set out with the classic Southern Cross song on our stereo.

Hey Verbena! Your adventure is now compounded 100 fold! I’m sure you can imagine what it is like “stateside” – I trust you are all doing well – stronger, smarter, fitter and can now see the world more clearly. Losing our son Luke has brought something of that to us, though I would have preferred to hop on the Verbena.
Ben wrote a lovely note – it sounds like you are truly “seeing the world” Ben – it is, after all, in the little things that the world reveals itself.

Love to you all – Bill, Renee, Vera and Ben – and great sailing! I trust Verbena Vera is taking a photo or two! – Tooey (the erstwhile Mr. Rogers)
Listened to Southern Cross. It gave me goose bumps! Safe travels!
Fair winds & following seas!
Looking good! Go Verbena!
Wishing you all a very safe and easy voyage as you travel the world on this very awesome adventure! Looking forward to your posts!
