How to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in this world is what New Horizons is all about. Please check out our website at We provide educational opportuinities for at-risk children in Southwest Florida. We are able to provide humanitarian aid to our Caribbean neighbors with our 68-foot cargo schooner, "Star of the Sea." The schooner is also used as a teaching tool for the "Call to Adventure" program that mentors young men at sea.

November 23-27

Trying to sail East when the wind is blowing from that direction is never easy. We spent 30 hrs. crossing the Gulf Stream because of wind direction and then motored across the Great Bahama Bank in a calm. As the wind picked up while we approached the Berry Island Chain I noticed some rigging in need of attention. Up the mast for a quick fix and then a long 26 hour motor sail down the Tongue of the Ocean which is located between Andros Island and New Providence Island. After an all day slog to windward navigating the Decca Channel we completed an exciting night time transit of Conch Cut in the Exuma Island Chain. Once again the wind on the nose made for a long night on the trip across Exuma Sound to Cat Island.
