We depart the Galapagos for the Marquesas Islands, 3,000 nautical miles across the empty Pacific. Along the way we have total carnage in terms of breakage (chafe, ripped sails, leaking hatches) and some health issues aboard. This is Part 1 of a 3 part series. Join us every Monday for a new release!
POSTING LIVE UPDATES ON SOCIAL:
ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on our “dream boat,” a performance catamaran named “Archer.”
Ten years ago, before kids, we sailed a Lagoon 380 named “Honeymoon” halfway around the world to Sydney, Australia. Along the way we shared our experiences with family and friends via YouTube, and by happenstance created one of the earliest sailing channels still posting. We also realized what an incredible experience we were having and that someday we wanted to do it again, only this time with our kids.
OUR BOAT is a Ferrari red Outremer 51 performance cruising catamaran. We chose this boat as it has been specifically designed for the purpose of bluewater sailing. It was designed and built to withstand the stress of “sailing multiple times around the world safely and in comfort.” And yes, she’s nice on the eyes too.
OUR ROUTE has taken us from the Boston/Cape Cod area of the United States down to the Caribbean and then through the Panama Canal. At the time of posting this we have dealt with the Coronavirus lock down in New Zealand and are now cruising again in Australia.
