Hello, we are Lainey and Rico, travelling with our wonderfully attentive humans, aboard a 40' Freedom sailboat. We had no sailing experience prior to being relcoated last January. This life is way better than being on Terra firma, as we get to roam around outside on the deck
. Our humans even put lifeline netting around the boat
for us so we wouldn't fall overboard
. We think they are a bit over protective, but you know those humans
Hello Fellow Boaters from the attentive humans! We are FT cruisers getting close to celebrating our 1-year anniversary of heading south from San Diego
, but our cruising journey started in June 2017 from the Monterey Bay. We are cruising in a 1996 Freedom 40/40 and we are her 3rd set of passengers. The Captain
has been sailing on and off for most of his life, he started sailing on the San Francisco
Bay, but never owned his own until the Kite. The First Mate took one week of sailing lessons
in June 2016 and was captivated, so we started the boat
looking and buying
process. The First Mate and Captain
had very different ideas on the necessities, as well as look.
While the Kite didn't fit in with any of the First Mate's ideas, once she stepped foot on the Kite, she fell in love. The deal was sealed the very next day.
Fast forward, we are just finishing up our summer in the Sea of Cortez
and getting ready to head
for mainland Mexico
. We will spend some time exploring the mainland along the Sea of Cortez
before heading south to Banderas Bay and beyond!
Nice to meet y'all!
