We’re the ONLY ones. A collection of perhaps 20 boats and, thankfully, 6 with kids. In this episode we gather at the famous Blue Lagoon (the G-Rated version!) and break out all the toys. We surf, kite, sail, foil, hike and catch a show. It’s not clear though who is having more fun? Is it the kids, or the parents?!?

This video was shot in September of 2020. We are 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 B.K. (“before kids”), we sailed a Lagoon 380 named “Honeymoon” halfway around the world to Sydney, Australia. Along the way we shared our experiences via YouTube and, by happenstance, created one of the first “sailing channels.” We also realized what an incredible experience we were having and that someday we wanted to do it again, only this time with kids.
OUR ROUTE has taken us from the Boston/Cape Cod area of the United States down to the Caribbean and through the Panama Canal. We have dealt with massive repairs in the South Pacific, the Coronavirus lock down in New Zealand, a Category 5 Cyclone in Fiji, and now we are cruising in Covid Free Australia. Videos for all of this to come!
