First they cruised the British Virgin Islands to Grenada. In Venezuela, they did coastal cruising visiting cities, the Amazon and the outer islands.

In Panama, they cruised the San Blas Islands, nade the Canal transit and visited Panama's west coast islands. In Central America, they cruised the coast of Costa Rica Nicaragua and Guatemala. They also visited Mexico and the Sea of Cortez. Finally, they made a long 2800 nautical mile trip from Cabo San Lucas to Oahu.
