Greg, Melinda (Mel), Allie (age 9,) and Tommy (age 11) Burnett, started cruising the Caribbean from Ft. Lauderdale in July 2015. They live aboard a Leopard 48 catamaran named The Amazing Marvin. Mel is taking a break from practising medicine as a neurologist, Greg is the electrical-engineer/scientist type, and the kids are homeschooled. They have spent some time in Jamaica, Colombia, Aruba, and Curacao so far, and plan to finish up hurricane season in the ABC’s and then head to St. Maarten, the Virgins, and the Bahamas over the winter and spring of 2016. If all goes well, they plan to spend the next year in the Med before returning to the US. Theirs is a 2-year plan.
