In the first episode, we saw the crew participate in the famous “ARC” owners’ sailing rally. On board their Lucia 40, Coco’s owners sailed across the Atlantic, starting out from Cartagena and bound for Grenada.
Having covered 4,200 nautical miles that were full of great memories and twists and turns, Ceylan and Alfie finally arrived in the Caribbean. Here, they enjoy the crystal-clear waters and white sandy beaches and show us the paradise-like landscapes of the Caribbean islands.
The crew start their Caribbean discovery at Port Louis marina in Grenada and then sail to the islands they have always dreamed of going to ever since owning their first Snapdragon 27 sailboat. Their dream was made possible by the purchase of their Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 catamaran with which they crossed the Atlantic.
Ceylon and Alfie organise a stop at Romeo Lobster, where they enjoy their first ever taste of lobster cooked over a wood fire by the locals. Great times and a meal they won’t forget.
The newlyweds checked off Ceylon’s number one item on her Bucket List… the Tobago Cays, where they marvel at this little corner of paradise. With the Caribbean offering exceptional scenery and unique marine life, the crew dives on the underwater sites and discovers a wide variety of marine life such as turtles, manta rays and starfish. These images perfectly capture the pleasure of sharing family diving in the calm and warm waters of the Caribbean.
Ceylan and Alfie have more great Caribbean adventures and new things to check off their Bucket list.
A LOOK BACK AT THEIR ATLANTIC CROSSING #EP.1
In the first episode of our #MyBoatAndI series, the young owners of “Coco” were preparing for departure ahead of their Atlantic crossing from Las Palmas to the Caribbean. Winners of the 2021 photo contest, they shared their adventure with us and invited us to join them on this magnificent cruising yacht rally. Their crossing was full of wonderful memories and twists and turns. The crew received a special award on arrival from the ARC Rally organisation for coming to the aid of a yacht that had been dismasted.
