“Like everyone who chases the horizon, we are sailing into the unknown. That’s what adventure is and we’ve learned that if you embrace that fact, if you surrender to it, your life will change.”

From San Diego we voyaged down the desolate wild barren Pacific coast of Baja Mexico. We rounded the cape and bashed our way up into the striking anchorages and brisk winds of the southern Sea of Cortez. From there we reached downwind to the tropical jungles and authentic culture of mainland Mexico before eventually staging in Bandaras Bay, with many other cruisers making final preparations for the nearly three thousand nautical mile open ocean passage to the Marquesas Islands.

It took us just over three weeks to complete the crossing to the Marquesas. It was every bit the life changing adventure we imagined it would be. Once we arrived in the steep green mountains and deep valleys of the Marquesas, we rested and explored before setting sail for the Tuamotu Islands, a remote chain of atolls with a well deserved reputation for extremes – ship crushing reefs and postcard perfect anchorages, including the one where our hook is currently set. From here we plan to set course for the Society Islands and beyond.

A genetic disease called FSH Muscular Dystrophy is weakening muscles throughout my body but it never weakened my dreams of crossing oceans or my resolve to chase those dreams. I am smiling now as I write this from a remote anchorage deep in the South Pacific Ocean having put almost ten thousand open ocean miles under our keel.

“Ultimately all you need is a solid boat, good sails, and the courage to discover what happens when you sail into the unknown.”

North sails drive our boat, the key to experiencing the blazing sunshine, energized salt water, brisk winds, and open-ocean adventures that only a sailor can understand. Ultimately all you need is a solid boat, good sails, and the courage to discover what happens when you sail into the unknown. It’s good to have you aboard!
