We are a sailing family of 3 - Eric, Loren, Rivers, age 6, and faithful security guard (dog) Zeke. In 2019, we made the leap, sold everything on land we owned, and sailed off to the Caribbean aboard our 46' monohull, Cecilia. Now, after pressing on through the uncertain waters of the pandemic, we've sailed the Bahamas, done 2 circuits of the Windward and Leeward Islands, circumnavigated Puerto Rico, ridden out hurricanes and Covid, all while living aboard, working aboard, and generally trying to stay afloat! Now, we've sold Cecilia and purchased a 1992 Privilege 482 catamaran, "Ophelia". She's rough around the edges, but all she needs is our love. So we've begun a brand new Caribbean journey while bringing her back to the beauty she once was, with an eye on an Atlantic crossing. Join us for the ride!
We're here to IMPROVE the boat, yet the dock and the weather are doing their best to destroy her. Boat life is FULL of struggles, but we didn't expect so many while sitting in a marina.
We're almost midway through our 1400 mile offshore passage when we hit our first light wind day. And that means...it's SPINNAKER TIME! We dig out our found and neglected spinnaker and show you exactly how it works.
