Sailing to Moorea – The First Time Moorea, French Polynesia The sailing journey from Tahiti to Moorea with our new crew (our adult children, William & Kayla) went by pretty fast. It was about a five hour journey and the wind and seas were favorable, which was a pleasant change. As we pulled our yacht […]
Sailing – Arriving in Tahiti the First Time Tahiti We arrived at the Yacht Club de Tahiti anchorage around 0900 and there was only about one or two open areas to anchor in. We cruised by one of the boats at anchor and asked them for some local knowledge of where to anchor, where the […]

Sailing – Mexico – Mainland by Sea and Land Mazatlan The wind and waves began to pick up in the morning just prior to pulling into Marina Mazatlan. If you’ve never sailed into this harbor (like us), it’s a little tricky when there are waves breaking in the small bay. We read in our cruising […]
Sailing – Mexico – Sea of Cortez Puerto Los Cabos I believe in planning ahead and I knew even before we departed San Diego, that we would want to have a few nights on land after being at sea for so long. In my past professional life I traveled a lot and as a result […]
Sailing – Mexico – Baja Coast Departing San Diego “What’s going on with this thing? Why isn’t it working?” Probably not the comments you want to come from your husband 20 minutes before you depart on a 10,500 mile sailing adventure. I’m pretty excited to get out of port but in my haste, I […]
