Crosses The Atlantic
The Following are excerpts from an E-Mail
received from Simon Foster (from Wales)
8 July 2008:
"Hello Tom and Kaye,
I've been at sea cruising the N Atlantic since September last year starting from Wales - Africa - Caribbean - Eastern Canada.
Unfortunately the USA is the only country in the Western hemisphere that I can't visit with out first going through a costly and time-consuming application for entry visas. So I gave it a miss. (Contact your congressman!)
My boat, a 1973 A37 Mk II yawl (hull #111) originally from Philadelphia although I purchased it in Maine 2005. Formerly registered as "FIGMENT", now registered in the UK as "Ara' Deg" (Welsh for 'easy does it').
I'm off to Newfoundland in a day or two and then hope to cruise Iceland and Norway before returning to Wales at the end of summer.
For a short video of my trip go to my Trinidad to PEI blog "PEI or bust!" at this address/link:
take care and have a good rendezvous in September,
A report on 7/17/08 has Simon on the north coast of
Newfoundland en-route back to Wales via Iceland. Check out his blog for
this leg of the voyage at: www.northernsail.blogspot.com
