13 months and counting…

Pinching ourselves, is this really happening?  We’re planning to set sail from Portland Oregon for a voyage around the world. May 2017, we’ll be out on the wild Pacific Ocean leaving family and friends for a 3-5 year voyage, circumnavigating this precious, beautiful blue earth.

Julia, our new 44′ Fountaine Pajot Evolution catamaran will carry us away.  She’s currently under construction in La Rochelle, France.  We chose her because the French are expert catamaran designers and builders and we loved Fountaine Pajot’s keen sense of style.

Come along with us via this blog as we prepare, and follow us over the next few years as we sail around the world; first to the South Pacific, then New Zealand, Australia and Singapore.  We plan to linger in The Med for a while, perhaps a year.  After Europe, we’ll cross the Atlantic, cruise the Caribbean before transiting the Panama Canal.  Back in the Pacific we’ll head north, up the west coast to home, in Portland Oregon.

  1. This sounds like the most amazing adventure a couple could possibly set out upon, I’m so happy for you both! I would be more than happy to crew for you on a leg or two too!
