SV Delos

We all have that occasional dream of chucking it all, hitting the high seas and sailing around the world.  Well, I do at least.  I’m always interested in hearing about the people who actually do it. You’ll find a lot of  blogs out there following boats making one journey or another, some good, some bad, […]

Going to School At Sea

Going to School At Sea

I know we’ve mentioned more than once our love of the water and my particular love of sailing. I am mainly self taught and have never had any proper schooling. You don’t need a license to sail or own a boat in most jurisdictions. But if you want to rent or charter a boat you’ll […]

We’re Just Window Shopping, Right?

We know it hasn’t been that long since we’ve written about sailing, but it is one of the things we love so it gets a lot of column inches. The best part of a town like Annapolis, MD is that it has more than one boat show per year. The shows aren’t small filler shows, […]

Sailing on Selina II

I will gladly admit sailing is a passion of mine.  I’ve been romanced by silent slow sojourns on the water since childhood.  I didn’t grow up on the water; we never owned a boat, with the exception of a canoe for fishing. But I’ve been drawn to the sea as long as I can remember. […]

Traveling Vicariously

I find one thing a lot of us who have the travel bug also have is lots and lots of books on travel. I have a book shelf full of them. I have a massive collection of frommer’s, fodor’s and other planning books but they are not my favorite. I love the good narrative. When […]
