About Me


To experience life and live it to its fullest!


Hmmm about me...I adore sailing and the water. My partner Nathan and I are a cruising couple (we captain and crew boats as a couple). We love to meet fun and interesting people hear different viewpoints, read, write, learn, have new and have adventures. Music, travel, and of course sailing are my great passions, animals rank pretty high up there too. I have done most of a circumnavigation (everything but the Atlantic from Cape Town to the Bahamas) and write a blog about cooking and sailing.


The one with the best stories wins :-)
