When Alan and I had the epiphany “we could live on a boat,” we began a 6 year journey to get trained, buy a boat and finally cast off the dock lines to officially join the cruising life. On Sept. 29, 2011 we finally did just that aboard our beautiful Caliber 40 LRC, Vivacia, accompanied by our unwilling cat, Mimi. We enjoyed 5 years up and down the Baja in the Sea of Cortez and mainland Mexico, with side trips on catamarans to and/or in French Polynesia, the BVIs, and the Bahamas.
In 2017 we moved aboard a 2008 Antares 44i Catamaran in Florida and began a new chapter of adventures on the east coast of the US. So far the only sailing side trip from there has been a catamaran charter in Croatia.
