Meet Erin, Stu, Ellie & Lilly – a Canadian Irish family who decided that the correct response to everything that 2020 brought to our world was to hit the reset button.
Our ‘plan’, loose as it is, is to spend 2021 in Mexico, likely coming back to Peñasco in September to haul out and do some work on the boat, and then to head towards Panama in 2022 deciding along the way whether to head west across the Pacific or east into the Caribbean.
We imagine a three to five year trip but hold that very lightly. If we discover the sailing life isn’t a good fit for us as a family then it will be shorter, and if we discover that we’re thriving and feel there is more to discover then the journey will continue.
We’d love you to join along with us!

TRACK US AS WE SAIL
We’ve finally hit the water! Much of the northern Sea of Cortez is completely off grid. No cell phone coverage, and few population centres with wifi access. We’ve just activated our IridiumGo! satellite modem with live tracking. You can see our realtime position below.
