“Fleetwood” ’s Log


August 31, 2008


A journal of Jack van Ommen’s circumnavigation started in February 2005 from the Pacific Northwest through the South Pacific, South East Asia, the Indian Ocean then around the Cape of Good Hope, across the Atlantic Ocean to the June 2007 arrival on the Chesapeake Bay. This is the last specific “Log” I have written. After the Chesapeake I did another trip on the ICW and then spent the winter in the Caribbean. As of June 2009 I started a blog and you can read back to that time when I continued with a North Atlantic crossing to Europe, a year in Holland and a journey across central Europe to the Black Sea. Eventually “Fleetwood” will head back across the Atlantic, probably winter 2012/2013, to South America.
