Embarking on an epic trip around North America is daunting. Saying goodbye to friends and family is never easy, but working for somebody that wants to travel through one of the toughest passes on earth is awesome!
Fortrus departed from Fort Lauderdale on July 5th for what is undoubtably going to be an adventure—15,000 NM total from Fort Lauderdale, over the top of North America and back home to Florida through the Panama canal. This will be a very long voyage for a boat that travels at a little less than 10 knots.

Our first leg is familiar, only 850NM up the east coast from Fort Lauderdale to Annapolis Maryland. The seas have been beautiful and we were lucky enough to have a massive dolphin send off.
