The voyage began with a shakedown cruise to Maine in September of 2004. November 9, 2004, we left our homeport of New London, CT and headed south down the ICW, through the Bahamas, and into the Caribbean. We spent the worst hurricane season on record, July to November 2005, in Grenada before turning north for the return trip. Windchime arrived in her homeport on Saturday, May 27, 2006. of a two-year voyage aboard a 37-foot sloop, beginning in the summer of 2004. The journey will take its crew from its homeport of New London, CT to the coast of Maine, down to the islands of the Caribbean, across the Atlantic to Northern Europe, and through the French canal system into the Mediterranean.
