People We’ve Met Along The Way

The blog of our first sailing friends, Joe and Anne, from Rhode Island.  They are taking the next 2 or 3 years to explore the Caribbean and maybe beyond on their beautiful sailboat Little Wing.  http://abblittlewing.wordpress.com/

Our new sailing friends, Drena and JR, on s/v Journey.  Like us, they have left jobs for a couple of years to pursue their dream of traveling before returning to the workforce.  http://sailingjourney.net/

A retired couple, Jim and Angela, who we met in Beaufort, SC.  They are on a sailboat called Bel Canto (Italian for Beautiful Singing).  http://www.fotogypsiesatsea.com/

One of many boats that we went through the Dismal Swamp with and saw again further south – Benny and Lisa on s/v Rhiannon.  http://www.rhiannonvoyages.blogspot.com/

A first for us – friends who own a catamaran – s/v Summertime Rolls!  We met Brian and Rebecca in Bimini, Bahamas.  http://summertimerolls.net/

The fantastic couple who we met and hiked the cave with at Hatchet Bay, Eleuthera.  Myron and Dena on s/v Hold Fast.  http://svholdfast.blogspot.com/

Another couple who we met in Hatchet Bay at the cruiser’s happy hour on the dinghy dock.  Carol and Bunky on s/v Lunahttp://goodsloopluna.blogspot.com/

A couple close to our age, on s/v Anthyllide, who are moving back to land shortly after sailing for almost 10 years.  They have a cat that looks just like Muna (it seems to be a trend) and have visited most of the places that we are headed for!  https://sites.google.com/site/svanthyllide/

It’s a small world after all … this couple, Corky and Anna on s/v Kabria, also purchased a boat in Portsmouth, RI.  They too have taken a couple years off from work to follow their dream.  http://kabriasailing.com/

Couple (with no sailing experience) who sailed around the world, drove across the USA in a Porsche, took a 60,000 mile road trip in a VW bus and are now raising their children on a sailboat while cruising the coast of Mexico:  http://www.bumfuzzle.com/adventures/

Books

Natalie’s favorite sailing author: http://www.womenandcruising.com/blog/2012/12/janna-cawrse-esarey-sailing-as-a-metaphor-for-marriage/  Check out her book mentioned on the site!  It will give you a better idea of why we are setting out on this adventure.

Another fantasitic book http://www.amazon.com/Changing-Course-Womans-Choosing-Cruising/dp/0071427899/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1381462705&sr=1-2&keywords=women+and+cruising It truly puts the “why we are doing this” into words.
