The Ever-Changing Plan

I (Anne-Marie) moved to San Francisco, California in January 2010. Chris convinced me to try living on a sailboat with him. "Just try it Annie. If you don't like it I promise we can live on land." After our first weekend moored at Angel Island I was hooked. The freedom of moving your entire home using just the wind is pretty amazing! For the next 2 years we put a lot of effort into saving money, doing boat projects and learning how to sail. 

Chris and I quit our jobs in November and December of 2011, respectively. The plan is was to sail our boat "Starship" south to Mexico in January 2012. We wanted to get to warmth as soon as possible, so we planned to make few stops and get to Mexico as quickly as possible. Our 9 day sail from San Diego to Cabo was absolutely glorious! If all goes well and we feel prepared then we're planning on participating in the "Pacific Puddle Jump" in March 2012 .... a sail from Mexico to French Polynesia. We loved sailing and Mexico so much that we decided to extend our trip and cruise Mexico for a year (great decision!). The revised plan is to participate in the Puddle Jump in March 2013. Then we would will island hop our way to Australia (our somewhere around there). This is the ambitious plan and it will likely take a year, but nothing is set in stone. We really just want to have a fun and safe sailing trip. Those are the main goals. The actual destinations might change...
