As I write this introduction to us, we are just starting our journey as sailors and this page is here to give you all some background. I’m sorry we have not been so present on facebook for all of you who are family and friends, but we are going to make up for it now, with this.
Honestly, we have virtually no experience in sailing. I, Eric, have sailed a total of maybe 2-3 weeks altogether and mostly bareboat charters in the whitsunday islands in Australia.
My family, none of them, except maybe Valé, have set foot on a yacht before, just the occasional ferry ride really is all they have done…
Step one will be to go and get our skipper and crew certificates in the Caribbean, we will also take a ‘Capt’ with us at the beginning to help us get some real experience under guidance.
So we know we have a lot to learn, all of us, but lack of knowledge is not going to stop us from getting started, nor is a lack of experience…
We all know that these are things we can acquire along the way and we all want to become that rare breed of human being… The circumnavigators.
While we are preparing, `I will be going back over all our writings and photos from the last years and fleshing out this site, mostly to fill the family and friends in on what we have all been doing while they worried and fretted about us travelling so much with the kids!
We look forward to sharing the whole thing and especially the future with you all.
