Welcome to gone.world. This is the home of sailing vessel Humpback and its crew: Dave, Charlotte, Arthur, Theo and Hector. We blog mostly about each place we visit and our passages between them. Sometimes, we also talk about other things like babies and children on board, boat-schooling and boat maintenance.
5 Years! What’s been, what’s now and what’s next?
We reflect on 5 years onboard and discuss what might be next for sv Humpabck and her crew.
South West Cay again, Glovers Reef
Overnight stop and a quick snorkel in between some squally weather.
Middle Cay, Glovers Reef
Anchored in the shallow water not far from Middle Cay. Research institute and a short walking trail ashore.
Between some reefs, Glovers Reef
Stopped for a couple of hours with a reef right off the stern of the boat. Amazing coral, beautiful fish.
Southwest Cay, Glovers Reef
Relatively sheltered anchorage in 7′ of water, decent nearby snorkeling. Nice first stop this trip to Glovers!
We took a mooring at Hatchett on a couple of occasions in 2022 as a staging-point on the way to Glovers Reef.
Anchored outside this beautiful lagoon. Interesting mangroves.
North Long Cocos
A few days spent on playing beautiful beaches, fishing in the mangroves and swimming in clear waters. And a lesson in catching lobster on nearby Rendezvous Cay.
Long Cay, Glover’s Reef
Simply beautiful and defintely worth making time for. Amazing water clarity, abundent wildlife and lovely resort on shore. We want to go back!
South Water Cay
South Water is a pretty resort island, quiet at the time we visted. Nearby Carrie Bow Cay research institute was really interesting, and the snorkeling nearby great.
