    OMG What adventure this young woman has. To me it is nice to think about but going forward I dont think I would have the “guts”(no other word can explain.) to venture out and make it real. I wish you and yours a safe adventure.

      Sonja, I can’t agree with you more. Not only does she have the guts but she also possesses the skills to make our dreams a reality. She’s an adventurer for certain, and I will trust her with my life. Emily is an excellent sailor. Thanks for your kind thoughts:)

    Dear Emily,

    I see a Great Book in your future of the trials and tribulations You and Matt have / will encounter and overcome. But most of all, a story that prompted and endured what most couples only consider for a mere moment.

    The sheer will and determination that has gotten the both of you this far is beyond my comprehension and I believe, most of those who follow your journey.

    While I realize you are not the first, you are certainly in a small select group of few who actually start out with a dream and follow it through. After extensive research, education, acquiring experienced, professionals, the safest equipment and not to mention the expense involved, you were not swayed to abandon your dream. Bravo!

    Your “if’s” are real. I would be concerned had they not entered your mind. However since they have, it only means you are thinking ahead and know what to watch out and be prepared for.

    Just as Mike and I enjoyed sharing our love for Motorcycles at a 1996 Rally in Wildwood with you and Tara, I am honored to “be” on this journey with You.

    By the way, I forgot to mention earlier, I love your Logo!

    My Angels are watching over you. ❤️ Mom Kathy

    I Love You, My Little Emily! Thank you for sharing with wonderous voyage with me – you know my heart, love and positive thoughts are with you. As always, Mom Kathy
