World's Largest Sailing Ship?

This car carrier has more sail area than anything else I've seen!

I wonder how this ship handles in a gale offshore -- do you think they sail her without engines if the wind direction is right?

Imagine the wind shadow!

Ensign on the Bay

First day of spring -- won't be long 'til we see boats daysailing on the bay -- like this Ensign.

Didn't it seem like a very long winter in the northeast?

Two Cats in Barbados

Four large catamarans and their guests shared our snorkeling area. Plenty of room for more.

Swim with the Turtles

This is one of the sea turtles that came to swim with us off the west coast of Barbados. The boat crews feed them so they'll join the humans for a short session daily.

Link here for more information on swimming with the once-endangered hawksbills and leatherbacks.
