Sharing some pics from our passage from Namibia to St Helena.
I can honestly say this morning that I'm tired of sailing on this passage. It's been a nice passage for the most part, but the past couple of days the constant back and forth of the boat has started to wear on me. The wind has been consistently behind us almost the entire trip and … Continue reading Sailing from Namibia to St Helena, March 10th

We've had a good time soaking up the Namibian desert and seeing some cool things. The pictures below are from the drive back to … Continue reading Traveling through Namibia
A Day in Luderitz, Namibia's First Port.
Day 3 on our way to Namibia. A little bit about our destination and a huge pod of Dolphins.
Today is the second day back on the boat, but the first day back on the ocean. It’s been great being back on the water.

All three of us have had bouts of seasickness at various levels as we … Continue reading Back in the Saddle Again
