I've gleaned quite a lot of information from CF and now that my wife and I are getting nearer and more serious about our cruising plans I figured its time to join the community! Here is a little bit about us.
We are a young couple (22 and 23) with a dream and a plan, Lord willing, to make our way through the Caribbean
next season. I grew up hearing stories from my father who circumnavigated with his family
when he was a boy and so began my love for the ocean and sailing.
and I (before I was married) completed a trip in 2011 from San Diego
, through the South Pacific
and on to Australia
. Since then I have married my wonderful wife and have shared my joy for sailing with her. A friend blessed us with a little 1973(we think) 23ft Northwind sailboat, with a 1953 Johnson outboard
, that I've been teaching my wife how to sail on the gorgeous Willamette River with.
We plan to sell her this summer and purchase
our boat we will make our trip through the Caribbean
with. I look forward to talking and gathering advice from this community.
Thanks and God bless!
