Back to sailing around the world

After 6 years of living by tides, currents, and wind it is difficult to not sail when the weather permits. About a week and a half in New York a decent weather window south came along. There are places where it is easy to find good weather windows and the North Atlantic has not been […]

The Corona Detour

The choice to make a 2500 mile detour was made for me by Civid19 and Bristol marine. Andy Tyska with Bristol Marine reached out to me back in February and offered to repair/refit the boat to help with my last leg of my journey. I thanked him for his incredibly generous offer but said it’s […]
