The Beginning

Who knows how it started? It's even hard to say when the idea came to us... For some time Krister and I had been itching to move on to the next thing. But not knowing what that thing was, we were stuck in limbo. We yearned for adventure, an alternative to the 9-5 grind, and an enjoyable, challenging activity to share.
Then out of nowhere the idea came to us- we should buy a boat and sail away! Last spring we began taking sailing courses at Tradewinds Sailing School and Club and searching for our boat. Between us, we had completed four American Sailing Association (ASA) certified courses. At that point Krister was checking boat listings on Craigslist and Yacht World constantly. Finally, with the help of John Kouny at Cruising Yachts we found Britannia. She's a 1984 bluewater ready 36 foot Canadian Sailcraft.
Understandably friends and family have shown concern for our safety, interest in what we're doing and in our adventures to come. We will post photos and information here to calm nerves and satisfy curiosity. Enjoy!
