Sailing Adventures

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.

Sailing Adventures for Participants:

Cruising The Maine Coast - The ultimate cruising destination in the United States

Sailing Sweden - The best cruising ground in the world?

Marion Bermuda Race - The annual race from Marion Massachusetts to Bermuda.

Solo Ocean Racing - For people who don't get along with others, this can be a good option

Angelfish: Voyage to Mexico - Blog about sailing to Mexico.

KatieKat - 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 suspended cruising.

Antica - A true around the world sailing adventure.

Pacific 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 to date.

Add Aliisa sinking, Lauri G. and Annina getting married, Aliisa freezing. Truly a new beginning.

AmberChan Voyages - This is the voyage of the AmberChan family. 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…

Avalone 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.

Captain Lepervanche's Web Adventures - We started our journey as retired officers of the Venezuelan Navy.
This is our log dedicated to those who steer their life's ships and always find the sun after the storms. Mail us if you want to join us on this journey.

Chasamba - 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.

Chronicles 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.

Coral 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.

Cruise 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.

Cruising 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.

Cruising 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 the rudder.

Cruiser Log - The Webmaster and his wife cruised aboard their own cruising yacht "SEEROSE" [Link], a 44' steel ketch, for five years and realized the need for a 'one-stop' boating resource where cruising sailors (and those in armchairs who 'dream' of the open ocean) can find as much information as possible on cruising, sailing, circumnavigating or crewing offshore.

Cruising the World on the Yacht Ocelot- Welcome to the Hacking family website with Sue, Jon, Chris, and Amanda on Ocelot, our 45-foot Wauquiez designed catamaran. We've been on this trip since December 2001, sailing from the northeast Caribbean through the Panama Canal, across the South Pacific, and into the Indian Ocean.

Decker Sailing - Welcome to the website of Doug and Judy Decker! We are cruising aboard the sailing vessel LIMERENCE. After retiring from jobs in Wisconsin, selling our home and cars, and bidding farewell to family and friends, we were truly footloose and fancy free to begin traveling on our sailboat. We lived aboard for two years in San Diego while outfitting our 1985 Beneteau 375. We cast off the dock lines in the fall of 2000 to join the Baja Ha Ha cruising rally to Cabo San Lucas Mexico

Empire - 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 2005.

Fairwinds Goes South - Adventures in a small boat on a big sea

Fine 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.

Fleetwood's 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.

Flight 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're Jim and Jean Foley, two amateur sailors who've been married for nearly 35 years and sailing together for even longer.

Free Radical - My wife (Julie Gifford) and myself (Ed Kettyle) have finished our circumnavigation of the world on a sail boat. The adventure started about 1996 in our home town of Peterborough Ontario Canada. We purchased a 44' Cartwright cutter which was moved to our front yard in the subdivision 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 holidays

Joshua Slocum - The first man to sail around the world alone.

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 and west. I'll be updating our Cruising Page frequently, so check back often!

We hope you find it interesting and enjoy visiting often.

Jockslodge of Hamilton - Welcome aboard the sailing vessel Jockslodge of Hamilton as she sets sail on a journey of adventure and exploration throughout the seven seas

Jojamela - Hi, I’m Bianca. Mike and I began sailing in 1993 after being introduced to it by friends. We purchased our first 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.

Jule - Simply put: we want our cake and eat it too! We own and operate a very small business (Advanced Research Corporation) that specializes in Information Security. We own a small house 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.

Ka'imi Sailing and Cruising Adventures - Sailing Ka'imi with Mike & Kim


Kestrel - '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.

Leu Cat - We retired from the hectic rat race in September 2007 and are starting "The Rest Of Our Lives" by cruising around the world in our beloved Lagoon 440 catamaran, Leu Cat.

Libations Too - This web site is essentially a story about a man 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.

Life Aboard a Sailboat - Join me as I maintain the many systems and keep this Sailboat afloat and looking good!

In fact, you may want to start with the archives in the right-hand column. We set out on December 10th.(Day 1) The journal is chronological from that point with multiple days on most posts, but each day is identified along with location, so hopefully it wont be too confusing.

Log of Sand Dollar - Greetings, we're Cade and Lisa Johnson - gone cruising. We set sail in mid-April 2001. Our travels to-date are traced on the map and described in our log.

Log of the Knotty Dog - This website has been designed for those friends and acquaintances that wanted to follow along our journey. We’ve taken photos and written a journal of our experiences for all to share. Nothing professional here, just a fun and honest interpretation of our adventure.


Lost on Purpose - I am... - unable to sit still - a water person - always working on some major project - quick to figure things out - shocked at what some people will do - excited about my future and - trying to forget my past It's nice to move on. I'm ready to get back out there.

Maravida - The adventures of sailing vessel Maravida and her crew.

Maringret - This website covers the two boats we have had, our various projects with them and links to information we have found for the two boats. Our first Maringret was a Swedish made Maxi 95, hull 647 from 1977. We bought her in 1998 and sold her in 2004 after 5 1/2 years and over 10,000 miles. Our second Maringret is a Swedish made Hallberg-Rassy 41 ketch, hull number 20 from 1976. We purchased her in late 2003 and currently sail her.

Mike 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.

Mike and Linda's Sailing Adventure - Integrity - 1977 Aleutian 51

Voyage 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.

Retire on a Sailboat - I early-retired in March 2001, bought a sailboat to live on, and have cruised Florida, the Bahamas, east coast USA, the Mississippi river, and now down into the Caribbean.

Sailor's 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.

Sereia - In November of 2003, Peter was in Richmond, California, preparing his new 32’ Rhodes Traveler to sail around the world. He was minding his own business in the marina laundry room when a young woman walked in. They got to talking. “So... what kind of boat do you have?” she asked, flirtatiously. He told her. “Mine’s bigger,” she declared. And so, a love-affair was born.

Retire on a Sailboat - I early-retired in March 2001, bought a sailboat to live on, and have cruised Florida, the Bahamas, east coast USA, the Mississippi river, and now down into the Caribbean.

Sarah - As you might guess from the title of this website and the picture, sailing is what this website is about. Sailing has been my primary interest since I was a teenager, working summers at a camp just off Lake Michigan north of Muskegon. When I moved to the Washington DC area in 1971, I took advantage of my proximity to the Chesapeake Bay to purchase my first sailboat.

Last Resort Home Page - In 2003 we outfitted the boat for our trip south including adding solar panels, a water maker, roller furling, a new heads'l and a pactor modem so we could use sailmail while on passages.

Mico Verde - 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.

Minuit - Circumnavigating around the World - Minuit (Midnight in French) is the name of a Belgian sailing boat which is circumnavigating. We would like to share this experience with you.

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost - This itinerary is a brief, proposed outline of what we have in mind for the next four years.

Sail 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. - The Sailing Adventures of the Parks' Family

Sailing 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

Sailing on Lake Michigan- Sharon Lee is a swing keel 1973 Catalina 22, purchased in March 2001.

Scorpio - 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.

The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Sea - Ten years ago, in a small, sweltering Caribbean beach bar, I found my first ride on an ocean-going sailing yacht.

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.

Wingssail - My name is Fred Roswold and I’m 61 years old.

On that boat we had cruised the Caribbean with our son Colin, then 3 years old, for 15 months in 1968-69.
