Just found you today. Why did you leave the catamaran? Guess I need to watch the videos to find out. What do you think about setting up a Patreon account? Most important—congratulations on the birth of your beautiful daughter!

Love the videos ! I spent the whole day watching some 100 of them !
I am a general surgeon and would consider joining you on your next journey to New Guinea; looks like they would benefit from some medical attention.
please give this serious consideration.
I grew up in Massachusetts and spent the first twenty years of my life summering on Cape Cod.
In my formative years I sailed a good deal.

Hope to hear from you soon.
Congratulations on your beautiful baby !

    Hi James, Thanks for the offer! That is super generous of you. We hope to be back in Papua New Guinea in about 4 years on our second circumnavigation. It may be the one place that left the biggest impression on us. Amazing people. Very poor financially but extremely rich in morals, generosity and kindness.

Hi Ashley,
I really enjoy your videos on youtube. I thought after the baby it would be the end. I got a really personal question, how old are you guys?Mike

We live just outside of Victoria (yes BC) . I have been following your entertaining videos for approx 6 months now.
I almost fell over when I saw you sporting the RVYC T-shirt realizing how close yo are to us.
To ease the revised boat “space issue” we may be able to accommodate you three on our houseboat on a nearby lake for a short while, if that helps??

    Hi Kevin & Chelsea! Thanks so much for the offer. We are indeed very close. I think we’ve got this covered. It’s going to be a heck of a lot of fun living in a small space.

In 22’ you will not lose any of the important reasons you sail. In fact, you’ll relearn some important things. And, you’ll love it for a whole lot of new reasons to be sailing.
