The Route



We originally set out to complete a two year circumnavigation around the word. In March of 2020 we landed in the Marquesas, in French Polynesia. One week after we made landfall, we were informed French Polynesian borders were closing as well as nearly every other that lay ahead on our route. The global crisis has completely changed our route but we are working to make the most of the changes we have faced.

Our original route is posted below, but now we are planning to make a great loop in the Pacific. We plan to sail from Polynesia to Alaska and back down North and Central America. From there, we will transit the Panama Canal again and work our way back to Charleston, South Carolina by December of 2021.
