You may have heard that Amy and I took 7 years and sailed our 38 foot sailboat around the world. Sailors call it a "Circumnavigation."
Our 38 foot Island Packet Sailboat, Estrellita, is a cutter rigged monohull manufactured in Largo Florida in 1990.
We sailed her about 40,000 nautical miles and visited almost 50 countries. We were turned back by Pirates in the Indian Ocean when fellow small boat sailors were taken and murdered by Somali Pirates. Some other highlights?
We have a slide show presentation that we have been honored to give to several boat and civic clubs including the Seven Seas Cruising Associations annual Gam in Melbourne, Florida. We would be happy to present to any size group that is interested in hearing these and other stories.

Truth is, we hardly wore foul weather gear.
