"Plans" beginning to take shape!!

Things are all beginning to fall into place for our return to Morpheus and the beginnings of our journey this Summer.

  1. Deb's brother Dan has quit his job and plans to sail with us for 2-3 months!
  2. Our airplane tickets are purchased.  We leave for Barcelona on May 9th.
  3. Morpheus is scheduled to be launched on May 11th.
  4. We know our first destination will be Gibraltar to reset the EU Customs Area required 18 month clock for visiting boats that don't wish to pay a 25% import fee.
  5. After that things are flexible but we are heading towards Sicily.  
  6. Most likely there will be stops in Ibiza (Dan's not about to miss that place!) and southern Sardinia.
  7. Research has shifted into high gear and our Master Cruise Map has been updated with destinations and points of interest for Sicily.
  8. After Sicily we'll be off for Greece, and hopefully Turkey.

Morpheus Cruising Plans for 2015

Hello!  Is anybody still out there?

We've been very quiet on the blog this year, but it's now time to start turning our thoughts back towards the boat and our cruising plans for 2015.

The house projects are over, and we've leased the house again for another year.

We plan to fly back to Barcelona in early May, and the big news is that Deb's brother Dan has decided to join us for a month or two!  We are thrilled to have him on-board, both for his company and for the additional help as we have plenty of miles to cover early in the season.

Our very loose plan is shown below.

More updates as we get closer to departure time.
