Sea Cloud

We joined a group of sixty four hearty folks for a weeks sail on the Sea Cloud, a 75 year old, 4 mast bark that truly represents sailing on a tall ship in the last century. She runs with a crew of 60 who came from all over the world.

We visite a number of islands in the West Indies and enjoyed our fellow passengers, the sea experience, wonderful food, interesting island tours and the relaxation.

Here are a few of the photos from our journey.
