It is Amazing What Happens When you put a Small Boat
in the Middle of a Big Ocean
Sailing adventures can be anything from the slightly adventuresome
cruise, to a single handed round the world passage. They are
enjoyed by both armchair sailors and adventurers alike. Sailing
adventures can come in the form of a race, or simply from
one person's desire to do something a little bit off the beaten
path. Either way, some of the best sea stories around come
from the tales of sailing adventures.

the boat, sailing out of Turkey, we have traveled westward
through the Mediterranean Sea, winter in Spain and plan to
cross oceans soon. Take some time to browse in older entries
to get a full impression on what it is like to become a sailor...;-),and
how we did refit a boat, while the it was at sea... If you
always wanted to know how such a project can be done with
little experience and budgets. Here is how "we just try

Voyage to Mexico - Blog about sailing to Mexico.
- Joe Siudzinski is a retired engineering director, a life-long
multihull sailor on San Francisco Bay, and now the owner of
a Seawind 1000 cruising catamaran named KatieKat. Joe and
his wife Kathy are recording their open-ended cruise from
Sydney (Australia) on this website. The cruise so far has
covered the entire east coast of Australia (including Tasmania)
in 2000-2002, New Caledonia in 2000, the sail to New Zealand
via Lord Howe Island in late 2002, some coastal cruising and
touring of New Zealand in 2003, the passage to Fiji, the Fiji
MiniCruise, the passage to New Caledonia, the revisit of New
Caledonia, the 'interesting' passage from New Caledonia to
Australia in late 2003, and the Australian coastal cruising
and inland touristing in 2004. In August 2004, KatieKat was
shipped to Vancouver, British Columbia. After a very brief
Fall British Columbia cruise and sitting out the winter in
Washington State, KatieKat spent 2005 wandering through British
Columbia and SouthEast Alaska, including Glacier Bay. In September
2005, Joe and Kathy sailed KatieKat down the northwest US
coast home to San Francisco Bay. Joe and Kathy resumed cruising
in October, 2006, sailed down the California coast to Baja
California, then spent the winter sailing down to Mazatlan
and Puerto Vallarta and then back up, exploring the Sea of
Cortez. After "Baja Bashing" up the coast to Southern
California in April 2007 and a summer break to have the boat
lengthened in San Diego, Joe and Kathy sailed home and arrived
in San Francisco Bay on 1 September, 2007, and have temporarily

Bliss - Through this site, we are keeping our friends,
family and acquaintances apprised of our progress and our
experiences. Our story begins with the specifications and
building of our new Catana 431 catamaran, called Pacific Bliss,
in 2000. In November of that year, we began the adventure
of a lifetime, sailing out of Canet, near Perpignan, France
on the Mediterranean Sea. By June of 2001, we had completed
Voyage 1, sailing 9800 nautical miles from France via the
Panama Canal to San Diego. By November of 2002, we had completed
Voyage 2, sailing from San Diego to the Marquesas and on through
the South Pacific to Fiji. By November of 2003 we had sailed
halfway around the world,completing Voyage 3. During 2004,
we sailed up the coast of Queensland, Australia on our Voyage
4. During Voyage 5, we sailed from Mackay Australia, to Langkawi
Malaysia, another 5,000 miles. Voyage 6 took us all the way
from Thailand to Turkey, through such risky areas as Pirate
Alley and the Red Sea, with port stops in countries such as
Oman, Yemen, Eritrea, Sudan, Egypt and Israel. We have now
sailed over 28,000 nautical miles during our circumnavigation

Over the next period of time, some of you will join us aboard
Encanto. Before you travel to us we would like to make sure
that staying on board a sailing vessel is in a lot of ways
very different form the vacation you might be used to spent
in a hotel or a campground. Many stories are told among the
cruising community about disillusioned guests that later became
known as “The guests from hell”. Most likely,
these guest will also tell stories about the “Crew from
Hell” when they return home…

and cruising adventures. We created this website as a way
to keep in touch with our family and friends, sharing our
experiences along the way.

to living aboard to full-time cruisers. We will share with
you our progress from making the decision to purchasing the
boat, our lessons learned, outfitting, and departure. Our
dream is very simple, to lead a life of simplicity and self
sufficiency, travel the waters to new and exciting places,
and share our adventures with you.

of Arne - In the summer of 1995, after some years of planning
and preparation, my friend Sarah and I gave up our jobs in
the City of London to take a year off and sail across the
Atlantic to the Caribbean. The original plan was to do the
standard "Atlantic Circuit" and sail the boat back
to England the following year. But when we were there, we
liked it so much that we decided to leave the boat there,
go home to earn some more money, then come back and carry
on. This we did, returning last February for Trinidad Carnival.
Lepervanche's Web Adventures - We started our journey
as retired officers of the Venezuelan Navy.

- Travels Across the Seas - Chasamba is a steel Van der
Stadt design, 36 feet in length and central cockpit, built
in Israel by Asa Bentur.
of Gypsy Soul - This chronicle begins in 2004, however
my journey aboard the 42 foot cutter Gypsy Soul began 4 years
earlier from a derelict boat yard near the Mexican border
of South Texas. Eventually I will edit the early years of
my missives to mom and friends, which I faithfully began upon
the embarkation of a childhood dream. For entertainment’s
sake to all sailors, my foolhardy and reckless early years,
from lake sailing armchair circumnavigator, to Pacific crossing
single-hander, will hopefully make this site by late 2006.
I must admit though, I remain foolhardy and reckless.
Moon- Alan and Jan Pulfrey have taken early retirement
and set sail aboard Coral Moon, a 43ft sailing yacht. We took
delivery of our yacht in Breskens, Holland, on 17 Apr 01 and
cruised for over 6 years. The purpose of this web site is
to provide interested observers with updates on our adventures
to sail Coral Moon to sunnier climes. Sadly our cruising days
have ended and we have settled in Nova Scotia. The last few
entries tell the tale.
USA to Australia - Eventually I decided on "Illusion"
an Irwin Citation 39 in Bridgeport CT. I then obtained a full
survey for my own use and for insurance purposes.
Clayoquot - The dog days of school are long over, and
full-time employment is now a reality. We are looking for
escape and adventure, but it can’t take much more than
our two-week allotment of vacation. Given that the Patience
plods along at a leisurely 5.5 knots, Alaska, Northern British
Columbia and Oregon are once again out of the question. Desolation
Sound is feasible, but far too non-desolate. Barkley Sound
is a worthy destination, but we’ve already charted those
waters. The obvious choice is Clayoquot Sound.
in Taonui - Taonui was built by Dubbel & Jesse in
Norderney, Germany in 1988/89. Coryn and I purchased her in
1996. She is probably best described as a pilothouse sloop
built on traditional lines, with moderate overhangs, a full
keel and deep bilges. The rudder is hung on the back of the
keel. The propeller is in an aperture between the keel and
Log - The Webmaster and his wife cruised aboard their
own cruising yacht "SEEROSE" [Link], a 44' steel

who 'dream' of the open ocean) can find as much information
as possible on cruising, sailing, circumnavigating or crewing

- The plan for a looong voyage has been there for a long time.
No one knows exactly when the 10. of June 2004 or 2005 was
put up as the departure date, but it could have been around
2000. The Plan was there also before that, but from about
2000 the plan became more real. The 10. of June was chosen,
because this was the date two friends of Eivind left Norway
for their looong sailing trip, in the boat “Gefion”,
some years earlier. Because of practical reasons the date
was later adjusted to 3. of July, and the year was set to

Tolerance - For over thirty eight years the Bruce Roberts
Group, with input from many designers, shipwrights, builders
and owners, have been drawing detailed plans for sailboats
and powerboats with the home boatbuilder specially in mind.
These designs range in size from 5.8 mts to 20 mts and can
be built in many different materials. We have designs in steel
or aluminium in either multichine, radius chine or round bilge
hull forms. Most designs are also in fibreglass using either
c-flex, foam sandwich or single skin hull construction methods
or in cold moulded ply or strip plank using what is commonly
know as wood epoxy boatbuilding. Thousands of designs marketed
as Roberts designs have been built in backyards and successfully
sailed around the world.
Log - A journal of Jack van Ommen’s circumnavigation
started in February 2005 from the Pacific Northwest through
the South Pacific, South East Asia, the Indian Ocean then
around the Cape of Good Hope, across the Atlantic Ocean to
the June 2007 arrival on the Chesapeake Bay. To be continued
in 2008 with a North Atlantic crossing to Europe and an eventual
return to the Americas.
of Years - "Flight of Years" is not just the
name of a boat. It is a lifetime, the journey of a lifetime,
and a dream. Some dreams are born in an instant; others mature
over time. My dream, my Flight of Years, began nearly forty
years ago and has grown quietly ever since until, finally,
it is no longer a dream. Now it is reality. Join me on the
journey. It is only just beginning.

we lived in. We thought it would take a year to make the changes
necessary to go to sea. It ended up taking almost three years
and heaps of money. Undaunted we continued on accumulating
over 10000 hours of work between us at night, weekends and

of 1996. From that time on we lived aboard and took this time
to prepare the boat, and ourselves to take the big jump into
cruising. Our grand plan is: "Go south till the butter
melts, and stay there" Well, we sort of plan on south

sailboat, a Hunter 23.5' brand new and called her Ditteaux.
Sailing quickly became our passion and we knew right from
the start that we wanted to sail full time once we retire.

on wooded acreage near Washington DC. We have a burning desire
to build a business that is compatible with the boating community.
And we like to cruise the East Coast and the Caribbean. We
do not want to sell our house (it's home), we do not want
to give up our business (we enjoy it and we have an impact)
and we don't want to merely daysail.

- 'Kestrel' is a 1976 32-foot Bristol sloop, continuously
improved over 28 years by owners, always with serious blue
water work in mind. After a shakedown cruise from Chesapeake
Bay to Bermuda and back in 2001, Kestrel was prepared for
more ambitious plans. In the late Spring of 2005, she set
sail for Ireland, which was the first leg of a 2 - year Atlantic
circle. Since that first trans-Atlantic passage, Kestrel has
toured Scotland (the lower Hebrides in June and July of 2006),
then, after a brief return to Ireland, Spain (La Coruna),
Portugal, Madeira, the Canary Islands, then finally back across
the Atlantic to the Caribbean. For that classic trade-wind
passage in December 2006, John single-handed Kestrel the 3000-odd
nautical miles from Tenerife in the Canaries to Martinique,
where Kathy came aboard for the ensuing five months of cruising
up the Antilles and Bahamas before the final leg home from
Green Turtle Cay to Beaufort Inlet in North Carolina, thence
up “the ditch” to Chesapeake Bay. Kestrel has
been at her home port in Deale, Maryland, since June, 2007.

and his boat...a personal chronicle of discovery. I do not
pretend that it's more, and I encourage visitors to recognize
it for what it is. Many will have perspectives, opinions,
and stories that differ from my own, and that is to be expected.
But others may not have a base of experience and knowledge
to form opinions one way or the other...they are either beginning
or still forming their own ideas of how to select, sail, or
cruise in their boat. It is for this latter group that I hope
this site proves most useful. In either case, I hope that
my story will be enjoyable and will help you sail safely and
confidently in whatever waters and winds you may encounter.

Washington, and then moved her to New Mexico to get her ready
for full-time cruising. Our sailboat is named "Linda"
which means "beautiful" in Spanish. She is hull

and Bryan's Big Adventure - All good stories have a beginning,
and this one is no exception, and since the beginning is a
good place to start, that is what we will do. At some point
in our lives it dawned on us that we would like to sail (air
is cheap), possibly, around the world. That is what this site
is about, our voyages both on board S/V Nightwinds and our
personal journeys, as we grow and learn from these experiences.

of Snow Goose - When we set out on our sailing adventure
over 10 years ago, we never could have imagined the incredible
experiences we would encounter along the journey we were about
to begin. It's not all a "Champagne and Caviar"
life as any live aboard cruiser will testify, but the good
times seem to always outweigh the bad in a strange sort of
way. While living and cruising aboard, we have been thoroughly
exposed to the many contrasts of sailing life, more than many
have experienced in a lifetime (ie. hit by waterspout, hit
by freighter, hurricanes, storms, etc.) but somehow, we will
value our years aboard as our most cherished.
on a Sailboat - I early-retired in March 2001, bought
a sailboat to live on, and have cruised Florida, the Bahamas,

Quest - Humanity has been acquiring knowledge faster
than ever before, but the wisdom to use that knowledge wisely
has lagged behind resulting in a polluted planet, weapons
of mass destruction, overpopulation and . . . (you know the
rest). Cultures that carried enough wisdom in the past to
sustain themselves for thousands of years are integrating
into the “Global Society” with their gems tossed
to the side. Sailor’s Quest is on a mission to gather
wisdom from around the planet so we can all use it to create
a sustainable world.

- What can be said about the Westsail 32 that hasn’t
been said a thousand times before? You either love ‘er
or your hate ‘er but I question the motive of anyone
who thinks they can find a better yacht for $55k that will
get you to Tahiti and back.
- Circumnavigating around the World - Minuit (Midnight in
French) is the name of a Belgian sailing boat which is circumnavigating.

at leisure, to meet men and women having different cultures
and also sailors like us.
All Those Who Wander Are Lost - This itinerary is a brief,
proposed outline of what we have in mind for the next four
years. The dates are based primarily on weather patterns (avoiding
hurricane seasons and benefiting from favorable winds). The

was said to be an old name. Kon-Tiki is also the name of the
popular book that Heyerdahl wrote about his adventures.

Adventures - This site was built to keep our family and
friends up to date on our sailing trip which started June
of 2005 in Seattle, Washington. We have so far sailed as far
north as Glacier Bay, Alaska and currently have made it to
southern Mexico. Having spent the summer of 2007 in Puerto
Vallarta, we have departed south for Panama.
- After falling in love with sailing in 2005 and getting our
first sailboat, Mandala, a Catalina 36, and sailing her all
over California in 2006, we have decided to take the next
big step and try full time cruising for the next couple of
years. So, here in March 2007, we have purchased Rhapsody,
the boat, to take us where she may !

taking us through Malaysia to Thailand, across the Indian
Ocean to the Red Sea, and through the Mediterranean to the
Caribbean. We will finish our trip on the Eastern Coast of
the United States.
Makanikai - Our dream is very simple. We would like to
spend at least one year, possibly more sailing around the
world together as a family. We don’t necessarily want
to go “around” the world as in a circumnaviagaiton,
just around the world to visit interesting places and see
interesting cultures. We want to take time while are children
are young and impressionable to teach them about the world
they live in, both with respect to the natural wonders of
the world as well as the fascinating people and cultures that
inhabit it. We want to slow down the pace of life and enjoy
life and our children together as a family.

Aquamarine- This site is your window to the adventures
and lives of Chris, Beth, and Yvette Lab while sailing through
the tropical Americas. Set up for family and friends, these
pages contain logs, updates, and pictures.
Adventures of Peter & Lyndall - We're the kind of
family who love walking along the beach making plans for the
future. For many years it was our time to dream of impossible
adventures, seemingly well outside our reach and when we saw
a yacht on the horizon all we could do was to wish for a miracle.
So after many years of dinghy sailing and the family finances
looking dismal we made our first move to "see the world".
The change we could afford was for me to take a job in Papua
New Guinea, on secondment from my Government telecommunications
job in Australia. This was to change all our lives. It lead
to a truly global outlook for all our children and it lead
us to Taiwan and our first cruising yacht, Dulcinea
on Lake Michigan- Sharon Lee is a swing keel 1973 Catalina
22, purchased in March 2001. During the sailing season she
is at a slip at Great Lakes Naval Training Center, north of
Chicago IL (near Waukegan). She is the perfect boat for me-
I can sail her easily by myself, or she can easily accomodate
the family, even overnight!

as much of this planet Earth as we could with this incredible
vessel and indeed we did.
- Our "Blue Water Cruising" started 14 years ago,
but we are still only half ways around the globe. Our intention
was never to do a circumnavigation, but we want to be where
the sun is shining, the water is warm and the wind is blowing
from behind. Now that the trade winds have taken us to "down
under", there's no other sensible route back to Europe
than continuing westwards.

life changes drastically. There is always something to do
on a boat. Unless you are someone who hires all his/her work
done on boat, you will develop an extra "hobby"
by just keeping her up.

Martin Chronicles - Dave and Jaja Martin are vastly experienced
cruisers, having circumnavigated aboard a Cal 25 in the late
80s and early 90s. The Martins write with a wonderful sense
of whimsy, and we're sure you'll enjoy reading their reports
as much as we do. Most recently they spent several years north
of the Acrtic Circle with their three children on a hard chine
33-foot sloop (this adventure was immortalized the classic
narrative Into the Light). The Martin family now resides in
Maine, where they've built a little cabin in the woods, their
first home on land.
- What's a slapdash? It's the name of our boat. It's also
an adjective which should accurately describe the next 4 or
so years of our lives during an attempted world circumnavigation
on a 34 foot catamaran. There. Secret's out.
Sunflower Reports - For the majority of the past three
decades Al and Beth Liggett have been doing what most of us
only dream about--cruising. Since 1966 they've sailed over
145,000 miles, circumnavigating two-and-a-half times (once
westabout and once eastabout).For the last 29 years the Liggetts
have been cruising aboard Sunflower, a 42-foot Robert Perry
design which they commissioned. In 1990 Al and Beth received
the prestigious "Seven Seas" award from the Seven
Seas Cruising Association, commending them for their circumnavigations
and outstanding contributions to the cruising community.

grown and living away from home. They met in 1982, and married
a couple of years later. Having lived together for 20 years,
they are now betting that they can make the trip around the
world without killing each other on the way. - - - But you
never know. Both have led pressured working lives, with small

of 2000. Since then we have worked actively and seriously
with our idea, and developed it into a plan, that has now
become the project that we are about to realize in August
next year (2006). The circumnavigation will last at least
three years, and be the main occupation for both of us during
that period of time.

of s/v Tamara - In the course of our cruises we have carefully
retraced the spectacular, but often difficult and challenging
route pioneered by the notable Donald MacMillan aboard the
famous wooden arctic schooner Bowdoin. Making twenty-six voyages
to the North in the Bowdoin, MacMillan was often forced close
inshore in order to skirt the pack ice, allowing him to call
at numerous villages and missions during the exceptionally
short navigation season found along this coast. Tamara would
do the same.

- CHRISTIANNE Yacht Charters (CYC) was incorporated more than
20 years ago as a live aboard cruising school and yacht delivery
service. It has since evolved to focus more on blue water
cruising and training sailors to take their own boat on long
voyages. Trips from the east coast to Bermuda are now considered
short routine voyages while the longer ones now cross major
oceans. A circumnavigation has been completed and the boat
is back in the US from Puerto Rico after the third Atlantic
Ocean crossing. Yacht deliveries anywhere in the world are
another facet of the organization. If the owner just lacks
confidence and would like to travel along for the experience
this is easily arranged.

Fiona - FIONA is a Westsail 42. My wife, Edith, and I
saw the first hull of the series under construction at Costa
Mesa, California in 1974. The salesman was very pressing and
for a small deposit we arranged to have a hull delivered in
1975. We had sold our beloved Dutch boat, IONA, a couple of
years before. On that boat we had cruised the Caribbean with
our son Colin, then 3 years old, for 15 months in 1968-69.
Both IONA and FIONA have the old-fashioned long keel of the
genuine ocean cruiser and when Edith first saw the Westsail
42 on the stocks she exclaimed, “My God, another f-ing
IONA!”. This is how FIONA got her name.
