Ahoy! In January 2011 we (Wayne and Ally) left our home port of Melbourne Australia to travel the world aboard “Blue Heeler”, our Hallberg Rassy HR 39 – we’re on a journey of a lifetime.
Already we’ve sailed thousands of miles – Australia to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Chagos, Rodrigues, Mauritius, Reunion, Madagascar, South Africa; across the South Atlantic to Namibia, St Helena, the Caribbean Islands; across the North Atlantic to Bermuda then through the USA; out in the Gulf of Mexico and south into the Caribbean; North Atlantic to the Azores then to Ireland.
Along the way we’ve met some like-minded people on similar journeys of fulfilling their lives with travel and adventure. In November 2015 we completed an amazing trip from New York to Alabama through the inland waterways of the US and Canada. In 2017 we are hoping to cross the North Atlantic to Europe.
Our blog offers you a glimpse into life on the water, and land, and how we manage the highs and lows of sailing around the world. It’s not always pretty and sometimes it’s downright ugly, but every day we learn something new – about the boat, different cultures, but more importantly about ourselves.
If you dream about ‘selling the house to go sailing’, this is the blog to read.
Welcome and enjoy!
