(vid) Distant Shores: Transatlantic on a Catamaran Part 3

From: Distant Shores

New post! The 3rd and final episode of our video series, “Sailing Transatlantic on a Catamaran”.

In this video, we take you aboard the Bluewater 50 catamaran, Zao, on the final week of our 3,000-mile transatlantic crossing sailing from the Canary Islands to St. Lucia in the Caribbean. The crew starts having fun fishing, Paul does a boat review, Alexandra bakes more amazing desserts and we monohullers perfect downwind sailing on a cat.

Just days before landfall in St. Lucia, we learn that there has been a man-overboard on a boat sailing ahead of us and we start a watch for him and his now deserted boat.

Follow this series to see what crossing an ocean aboard a catamaran is really like.
