Sunset in the Chagos ArchipelagoThis is the story of the sailboat Out of Bounds and her crew during a 936 day journey around the world that was completed on May 26, 1999.

We didní»t quite know what to expect when we set sail from Newport, Rhode Island on November 1, 1996 headed for Bermuda. We soon found out, however, as our first offshore passage consisted of 70 knot winds and 20 - 25 foot seas... We then traveled through the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, Panama Canal, and across the South Pacific to Australia.

In July 1998, the passage home from Darwin, Australia began as we crossed the Indian Ocean to South Africa. We made stops at Cocos Keeling, the Chagos Archipelago, Out of Bounds enters NY Harbor on May 26, 1999Seychelles, and the Comoros Islands.

At the end of January 1999, we left Cape Town, South Africa in our wake to cross the Atlantic. The passage was close to 6000 miles to reach the Caribbean with a stop at Saint Helena and Fernando de Noronha, a small island off the coast of Brazil.

Aiming North from Grenada in March 1999, we stopped for Antigua Race Week, taking 10th in the racing/cruising class. Not too shabby... and with a dog aboard as well!

On May 22, 1999, we left Bermuda and started on the final passage back to the East Coast of the United States.  All told, we traveled over 34,000 miles in 32 months and arrived in New York City on May 26, 1999, ending our travels... or maybe not...
