The ongoing story of a young family who hope to go from hopeless landlubbers to swashbuckling circumnavigators.
It was in September 2010 when the seed planted and the plan hatched. None of us had ever been on a sailboat before, but it was decided, mum, da, and baby would sail around the world.
In our initial stages of preparation, our plan has gone through some changes. Some small, some huge. The original plan was to sail across the Atlantic. But that grew to a complete circumnavigation (if you’re at the well, you might as well fill the bucket!). The plan will no doubt go through many other changes over the course of our preparation.
With this blog, we hope to document our preparation, education, and evolution as we get ready to take the long blue road around the world.
We are a family of four living on beautiful Cape Breton Island
