Our sailing and sailboat cruising blog will take you on a journey on how we started by minimizing everything and saving money to begin our sailing adventure. We sailed over 11,000 miles in just under a year cruising Mexico and sailing across the Pacific Ocean to French Polynesia, Hawaii and back to San Diego

Our sailing journey is also captured on our YouTube Channel / TheAdventureTravelers.  Become a subscriber to our channel and never miss an episode.  We are continuously uploading new videos.  These videos show you how our story begins, traveling through Mexico, crossing the Pacific Ocean, sailing through French Polynesia and sailing to Hawaii and crossing the Pacific Ocean once again to bring our yacht back home to San Diego.  Also how, I became a US Coast Guard 100 Ton Master Captain with sailing endorsement and some of my sailboat deliveries.
