Finding Mañana

During the Mariel Boatlift in 1980, a young girl named Mirta Ojito escaped from Cuba on the boat of a New Orleans skipper, Capt. Mike Howell. She grew up to be a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author who told her story and Howell’s in a book. This exclusive excerpt follows Howell’s path into history.

The Down East Loop - Ocean Passages

In the last 48 hours I experienced my two favorite times on the water; watching the sun go down and seeing it rise. Cruising offshore on a boat is still one of those rare opportunities to inject a little adventure into our lives while testing ourselves.

Getting Ready for the Final Leg

The Cutwater 28 Down East Loop trip continues. After a short hop from Constitution Marina in Boston, the boat is resting snugly at Newport’s Goat Island Marina. The 28 has moved almost every day since August 20. Indeed, this trip is one heck of a shakedown for a new boat.

The Down East Loop - Day 11

BoothBay Harbor to Boston took us three half-day passages thanks to clear skies, calm seas and the Cutwater’s comfortable low cruising speed of 12 to 15 knots. Before leaving Boothbay, Joanne and I ate breakfast with Allan Miller and Pam Burke. I knew Burke from Newburyport where she owned a beautiful wood schooner, named Heart’s Desire.

The Down East Loop - Day 7

We made it, pulling in to the Port of Quebec Marina just before noon today, the end of the first leg of the epic Cutwater 28 Down East Loop voyage that started 455 miles ago in New York   City.

The Down East Loop - Day 1

Well, after months and months of planning, we're finally underway on the first leg of our epic Down East Loop on a new Cutwater 28. Right now we're in Kingston NY, some 80 mm from where we started at Liberty Landing Marina across the Hudson from downtown Manhattan.
