This was magic! Team Archer sails into Sydney Harbor, celebrates this milestone, and reminisces about the past. This was our final sail on SV Honeymoon back in 2009, and we couldn’t help but feel a little nostalgic doing it again, this time with our kids. It was special seeing through their eyes the Sydney Opera House for the first time and exploring a new, magical city. It was a dream come true! Literally! (Minus the bug infestation, rainy weather and near collision with a sea plane.) So we ask you, which is better? The Opera House or the Statue of Liberty!? 😂

ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on a performance catamaran named “Archer” and sharing our adventures in family-friendly episodes every Tuesday!
OUR ROUTE: We departed the Boston area of the United States and sailed south to the Caribbean and then west 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 Australia.
OUR PAST: You may remember us as “SV Honeymoon?” 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 via YouTube and, by happenstance, created one of the very 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.
