Atlantic Crossing – Putting it all in one place!


After 5 seasons cruising the Mediterranean, it was time to begin the long journey home.  Deb and I sailed the boat out of the Med and down south to the Canary Islands in late October/early November.  Our Atlantic Crossing crew joined us on the island of Teneriffe.

The Crew


We were lucky to have lined up an all-star crew for this crossing.  This was a fun and talented group of sailors.  Additionally, each crewmember had previously sailed over 1,000 miles onboard Morpheus.

Jim Gregory/Debra Gregory – owners that have sailed Morpheus from NZ to Greece.

Mike Wallach – Delivery crew extraordinaire and trip historian!  Mike’s previous trips onboard Morpheus included Bora Bora to Hawaii, Hawaii to San Francisco, multiple trips North from Mexico to San Francisco, and an eastbound Atlantic Crossing.

Kim Comfort – lifelong sailor, lifelong friend, and boy can she cook!!  Kim helped us during our eastbound transit of the Panama Canal, a stormy Newport to Bermuda delivery, a record-setting Newport to Bermuda Race and our eastbound Atlantic Crossing.

Doug Jorgensen – fraternity brother, lifelong sailor.  He was there when we first launched Morpheus to help us with commissioning and sailing her North towards Auckland through a vicious storm (gusts to 56 knots).  He and his brother Tom also joined us for a great trip North from the BVI’s to Bermuda.
