The fun begins!
13 June 2007 | Napa, CA
We've finally made the decision to pursue our sailing dream and go on an extended cruise beginning this summer. So we are in the midst of a whirlwind of preparation, aggravation and stress!! So many details to consider: boat prep, insurance, household, etc, etc, etc! If we weren't so busy with all our "lists" we'd be able to detail it here. But time is short so let's just hit the highlights...
We are the Powers family: John, Nancy, Madeleine and Sophie. We are currently living in Napa, Ca. Last year we purchased Meridian, our Tayana 48 center cockpit cutter-rigged sloop. We've spent the last year outfitting her to meet our offshore cruising needs (we hope!) and sailing San Francisco Bay with the occasional coastal cruise to Half Moon Bay.
Our plan at this point is to finish up the boat prep, get the house emptied and rented, and head south sometime this summer. We will join the Baja Ha-Ha fleet at the end of October for the rally down to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
We'll do our best to keep this blog updated so that our friends and family can follow along with us on our excellent adventure!
