What a day! What a week! What a year!

01 May 2008 | Randolph, NJ
This year so far has been the most exciting and most trying of any yet! We have been dreaming of a large schooner since we were married in 1995. This year we have been looking for, waiting for and pursuing the one we believe is right for us. Finally, today we closed on the Liberty Schooner, currently docked in Key West, Florida.

Captain Bill and a deckhand who flew down with him officially moved aboard and are getting the boat in order to do the long trip north to New York City. Philip and Luke are very much looking forward to joining the rest of the crew down in Key West this Sunday to do final preparations. They plan on beginning the journey up on May 6th, with 2 captains and about 7 crew aboard.

The journey will be done in relatively short hops up the coast, as follows:
Key West to Miami -> May 6 - May 7
Miami to Charleston -> May 8 - May 12
Charleston - Cape May -> May 14 - May 23
Cape May - New York -> May 25 - May 27

Ruth and I will be joining the crew in Charleston, when Philip will be jumping ship to do a seminar back here in New Jersey. All together we have 16 crew helping us on various legs of the trip, ranging in age from 4 to 78 years old. We are having the time of our lives, loving every challenge and every great blessing that has come our way. Thank you all for your continued support and love as we grow in our love for the sea and for each other.
