What does it feel like in 60 knots of wind? Well, it ain’t great. Here is what happened and how we landed ourselves in 60 knots of wind anchored in a little cove in Milos, Greece.
Are we lucky? Yes. Thankfully, we have been given only soft lessons that only increase our chances of making the right decision for the next time. Here is a list of everything we got away with. The real question is… can we run out of luck?
The adventure begins! Wait, a couple things first. Picking up Sea Odyssey didn’t go down exactly as planned. Not at all in fact. We had no idea it would that difficult to pick up our boat and sail away. Good thing La Rochelle is so amazing.
Two months to go. Let us just tell you, time flies any time, not just when you are having fun. We thought 2 years & 9 months would take forever to come, and it may have, but we are too busy to even think about it. In this article, Matt & I share our thoughts and ideas on the decisions we made so far and what’s to come.
How excited are we to connect those last dots and get a clearer picture of who, what, where, and how… we already knew the why, lol. From the Fountaine Pajot factory tour to visiting La Rochelle and meeting Pierre at Uchimata, on top of just enjoying France, we are more comfortable & confident than ever. We got this!
Waking up to paradise on earth in our little bungalow with a view was a dream come true. Tahiti did come with its issues though. We learned some important real world lessons of what we can expect in remote places. It ain’t going to be easy…
Just too many great pics of Tahiti. What a problem to have!! It is hard not to take a great picture of heaven on earth. Enjoy this gallery of fun and fav pics! All images sharable btw ;o)
The Annapolis Boat Show was definitely different for us this year. Last year was about the boat and this year was about the equipment. Maybe we don’t want the standard factory options, ya know? We were on a mission to see what was out there & learn everything we could. Learning our boat piece by piece so we can make well informed decisions – oh and party. It’s Annapolis!!
Matt was fine. I was nervous. What if I didn’t like sailing? What if Matt didn’t like sailing? Everything would be ruined. What about all our plans? There was so much riding on this trip…
