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!

Ute nestled into Jonesville Bight (behind our very own 'electric fence' of course) Posted by Picasa

Please explain 'electric fence' and 'bight'.

Thank you,
a non sailor

don't worry...neither term is remotely nautical. "electric fence" is a (apparently obscure) reference to our close brush with electrocution getting to the spot you see in the photo, and a "bight" is what they call an inlet in the Caribbean...sort of where the sea takes a "bite" out of the land!!!!
i'm glad you asked...maybe it is time for another FAQ post.
