The Voyage So Far ......

Meniscus set sail from Southampton in September 1996 and has sailed over 30,000 miles so far. The route has taken her South to France, Spain, Portugal, Madeira and the Canaries, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean. The Windward and Leeward Islands were extensively cruised as well as Tobago and Trinidad in 1997. In 1998 we transited the Panama Canal and crossed the Pacific Ocean to the Galapagos, Maquesas, Tuamotos, Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Cook Islands, Nui, Tonga, Fiji, New Caledonia, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. From Melbourne back to Sydney, Lord Howe Island, Fiji and New Zealand in 1999 to see in the new millennium. Then returning in 2000 via Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia to Queensland, Australia. To Vanuatu in 2001, then Darwin and Timor before arriving in Bali for 2002. We are now cruising between Langkawi, Malaysia, Phuket, Thailand and Mergui in Burma.
