2020 Summer Route: This summer we will start in Cagliari, Sardinia. Head down to Palermo, Sicily, follow the NE coast and hop over to the Aeolian Islands. Sail to Tropea on mainland, Italy. Next through the Strait of Messina to Taormina, Sicily. A long eastward crossing from Sicily to the Ionian islands. After a month in the Ionian Islands from Zakinthos to Corfu we head east to the Corinth Canal and into the Aegean. Three weeks cruising the Cyclades before meeting the Proctors near Athens to end our summer cruise.

On April 22nd Cindy and I will begin our 12th summer cruising the Mediterranean. This year we have a new boat, a 2003 Jeanneau 45.2 Sun Odyssey sailboat that we co-own with John and Laura Proctor. Sea Star II was an incredible blue water cruiser, we sailed over 20,000NM on her since leaving Sarasota in May of 2007. My original plan was to cruise the Med in three summers, sell Sea Star and come home. Didn't happen, we love the Mediterranean and are looking forward to more adventures aboard à bientôt. A quick look at our new boat.

Summer Route 2018 - We will spend the first week cruising from the boatyard at Ameglia, Italy along the Ligurian coast over to Nice, France. The remainder of the summer will be spent along the French Riviera between Menton and St. Tropez. At the end of June we sail down to Corsica, follow the west coast to Sardinia and then backtrack over to Elba, Italy and rendezvous with the Proctors July 15th at Marina di Pisa where they take over for their summer cruise.

See my current position using my AIS signal. AIS Map

Sea Star has an Automated Identification System which broadcasts my location, speed course etc. to other ships in the vicinity. I also receive their information. Click on the chart to go to my current position. If Out of Range appears it is because we are in an area (anchorage surrounded by mountains) where my signal is not being received. Try again later. You can zoom in & out and get more information by clicking on the various options on the chart.

For the techies out there, click this link:
It has my positions (168) charted from the last three summers. Put my call sign, ki4jjc in the field on the top left of the Shiptrak site and click View. You will see a red line being drawn on the world map. When it stops use the controls on the top  left to zoom in.
