    Jody Bedson and husband Stephen Parry complete their double -handed circumnavigation on Blue Pelican, hull number 122, after setting out from Florida 2010 and traversing Bahamas and East coast USA. Spending a few years in east and west Caribbean, ultimately departing Caribbean Sea in 2014 to cross Pacific, Indian oceans [via Gulf of Aden, Red Sea and Meditterenean Sea] and returning to Caribbean Sea [Martinique] Jan 2019. This after meeting many 424 and 422 owners along the way. Great to meet so any of you. Too many to list, but happy to hear back from you. Just now with ‘HiFlight’ in Martinique [and formerly in N.Carolina, USA], and in Malaysia recently with ‘Romance’, in Qld with ‘Woosh’, memories of so many in USA and these waters [now Caribbean Jan 2019]

    Congrats on going all the way around! I’m in the process of reorganizing some of the static pages on this site and we decided it would be fun to have a 424 Hall of Fame. As the first person to post a circumnavigation announcement, y’all are the first inductee! Hopefully in the future the hall of fame will grow to be more than a list but for now check it out here:

    If you want to share more details about your circumnavigation shoot me an e-mail at I’d be happy to interview you for the benefit of the handful of P424 owners currently refitting for extended cruising if you aren’t the blogging / writing type.

    Anyone else reading this that has circumnavigated, feel free to drop me a line.
