"Follow You" Makes Latitude 38
06 March 2009 | La Cruz
Check out the March Latitude 38 for an article, including Rina and I, about people who have attended local sailing schools and went on to cruise. The interview, by John Riise, was conducted while we were in Barra, via a skype call on our computer, which was a first for John. He especially got a kick out of the fact that we bought the boat before we really knew how to sail her.
Rina and I took many classes at Club Nautique in San Francisco Bay, then Orange Coast College's Alaska Eagle, with a trip down the Baja coast. We followed that up with a series of more and more challenging voyages with the help of friends and family over the last 5 years. Special thanks goes out to Gene, Corey, Pep and John for their guidance, inspiration and assistance.
We are still learning TONS out here every day, and the humility engendered by stubbing our metaphorical toes is wonderfully grounding. We expect to be on a steep learning curve for quite a while as we head west.... frankly it freaks me out a bit, but I (we?) love a challenge.
