Live Your Dream. Sail around the world.

Where has the time gone…

Well we are so far behind in telling tales of our journey, it’s daunting to catch up. We have been flying through the Eastern Caribbean Islands working our way south. Destination: Grenada. Deadline: July 5th.  Just over a month ago we left the virgin islands and we have been moving almost non-stop since. We have […]

Spanish Virgin Islands

Well, we have a little catching up to do. Two months ago we arrived in Puerto Rico and for two months we have been meandering through the Virgin Islands. Now we are onto the leeward islands as head south to Grenada for Hurricane season. So what’s with the delay? Well we had guests. We had […]

Bahamian Sloop Race

After having spent way too much time at Black Point we were ready to move. Word on the street was that there was a Bahamian sloop race this coming weekend in Barreterre, a town just south of here. What better excuse than to pull anchor and set course to the next destination. We’d barely made it […]

(Avoiding) Heavy Weather & Forecasting at Sea

We have been deeply immersed in learning about weather forecasting after attending a course in Offshore Weather. Two full days of intense learning about weather maps, heavy weather (storm) sailing techniques and various other worst case scenarios. At the end, we had finally realized how little we do know. But we did learn what Isobars, Wind feathers, Occluded fronts, […]

Shakedown Weekend

The other day I was thinking about how much we go away on weekends. My thoughts were somewhere around the fact we are going to run out of steam if we keep this up. Today, thinking about it again, I realized that’s total BS. Yes it’s a lot of work packing to go camping for the first […]

Sailing Innovation

The sailing world is just full of innovation these days…. foils, kites, kite boats, foiled kite boats. Awesome.  

Play Time

A boy has gotta have some fun now and again. After a long weekend of working on the house getting it ready to sell, the wind lined up perfectly this afternoon. Brother in-law, Kirk, accompanied me on my 2nd outing at the gnarly Dallas Street kite beach. I’m probably at an intermediate level. When conditions […]

Anniversaries & Kiteboarding

Well here we are at the end of another summer. It has been one of the most amazing summers for myself; Self employment, flexible hours, happy clients and kiteboarding. To say I am grateful would be an understatement.   To top it all off, Ashley and I celebrated our Anniversary with a trip to Nitinat […]

Beginner Kite Boarding on Bulabog Beach, Boracay

This is an amazing sport really. All of your equipment could fit into a suite case. Unlike Sailing or Windsurfing which has huge sails, big surfboards that don’t generally transport well. All you need is a small beach, about 10 – 15 knots of wind and you’re good to go. You can easily bring the […]

Kite Boarding on Boracay

Boracay Island has two sides; A windward side and a leeward side. The leeward is party central with tons of restaurants, massages, shops etc. The windward side is dedicated to Kite Surfing and has the exact opposite vibe; Relaxed and Chilled. Quite lovely really. We ventured over to Bulabog Beach, the Kite Surfing beach, the […]

Back to our Roots

A short clip of our Boracay Island circumnavigation on a outrigger canoe sailboat. This was a stop at a beach called Puka Shell Beach. We loved this so much we may just go back for more!
