Who’s interested to crew with me delivering a 70ft race boat from Rio de Janeiro to Antigua end of January? I’m going to lock in final crew very quickly as visas needed etc. Message me directly if interested and for more details!

Arrived San Francisco!

hi

Arrived to San Francisco from Hawaii on this 3rd lap of the pond for the summer!  It was a tedious 23-day jaunt with an uncooperative high and a burned out starter motor but still had fun in double-handed format with solo sailor Linda Pasquariello.  Ironic that we raced each other solo from San Francisco to Hawaii last year and now we arrive to SF double-handed!  Also crazy it was my 5th Hawaii-Cali run since last summer…I have a few great pics from en-route and the most spectacular sunset under the Golden Gate I’ll post shortly!  PS:  A possible 4th HI-Cali run, who’s keen to crew?  😉

40 X 40 ~ Life Begins at 40

Life Begins @ 40!  Another two or three trans-Pacific Hawaii to the US West Coast return yacht deliveries coming up as the summer rolls on…A 70ft all carbon Alan Andrews 70, then a cruising boat and a 4th possible…

The 3rd after the race boat will be my 40th trans-Pacific at age-40  😉  Or 100,000-nautical miles on this route alone = 4 X around the world…Man, I should pick up a new ‘hobby’.  Where do all the miles and time go ?!  Hopefully I’m just getting warmed up for the ‘neXt’ – some big plans on the not distant horizon ____________/)
