We have owned Pearl Seeker for nearly 10 years now and purchased her
to sail the atlantic ocean. We crossed in 2003/4 in 18 days from the
Cape Verde Islands – St Lucia. The crossing was the most pleasant
since leaving the UK.
Pearl Seeker was fitted with an aries wind vane and we crossed the
atlantic with twin jibs and a twizzle rig. She manged top boat speed
5/6 knots the whole way across – 125 nautical miles each day until the
last 60 miles.
It was a great trip and Pearl Seeker looked after us well.
Pearl Seeker is now back it the UK.
Fair winds and good seas!
