Crew: Tony Wessendorff & Gail Corrigan
Hailing Port: Houston, Texas, USA
About: After 25 fun filled years as an environmental consulting firm owner, Gail sold her company and she and her husband, Tony the CFO, retired to go sailing on their boat Cetacea (see photo gallery). Cetacea was in St. Lucia for 12 years and they sailed the eastern Caribbean as far north as the BVIs and as far south as Grenada. Almost all thier family and friends (see photo gallery) have joined them on at least one trip and look forward to more island adventures in the future! In February 2013, they finally unplugged from the dock and headed west. In 2013, they sailed to Bonaire; Curacao; Providencia and San Andres in Columbia; and Bocas del Toro and San Blas Islands in Panama. They left the boat in Shelter Bay, Colon, Panama at the end of 2013 to go "home for the holidays". In January 2014, they made transit through the Canal and into the Pacific, to the Galapagos Islands. In May, they sailed to the Marquesas Islands, then Tuamotu Islands, then Society Islands. They left Cetacea in Tahiti in September and flew home to be with family. In January 2015, they returned to Tahiti with a 12-month Visa and plan to sail around the Tuamotu Islands and Society Islands throughout 2015.
P.S. Cetacea is the higher order biological name for whales and dolphins. Whales and dolphins are cetaceans. And our boat is a big fat whale of a boat, hence the name Cetacea! Not to mention that Tony & Gail, like all sailors, love whales.
