welcome to our blog!

This blog tells the story of our 22-month sailing journey from Oakland, California, to Bristol, Rhode Island, aboard our beloved Bristol 32 sailboat, Ute. Please feel free to browse through the archives (partway down the sidebar to your left) to see pics and read stories of our adventures in North America and Central America . (Sorry the first 3 months of the trip are missing - they vanished somewhere in an internet cafe in Mexico - but all you're missing is CA, Baja and Western Mex).

If you're trying to track us down now that we're landlubbers, try us at uteatlarge at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

Transit Update - Tomorrow (May 17) is the day!

We are picking up our Transit Advisor at 6:30 am Panama time, which is CDT. So we should be entering the Miraflores locks around 7:30 or 8:00 AM. We think this means that if you check out the webcam between 7:30 and 10 AM CDT you have a chance of seeing us. try again in the mid to late afternoon if that doesn't work (for the Gatun locks on the other side). not that we expect you to be glued to the webcam, but if you're at the office and bored, hey why not?

The link for the Web cam is:
See you there!

Hi,Cora (& Allen)

Not only did you transit the canal of your grandparents' cruise, but you did so on your grandfather's birthday!(and Norweigan independence day, which is a big wisconsin holiday) Hope he was smiling on your trip...Mom
