Join us on the adventure - New Sail Away Weeks


This is the second year of cruising aboard our new Southerly 480, Distant Shores III. From Florida we'll jump to the Bahamas for island-hopping over the Christmas season and early January (Note: the areas of the Bahamas we'll be sailing in were unaffected by Hurricane Dorian). In 2020 we'll sail south to Panama, through the Panama Canal to begin new adventures sailing the South Pacific.
