With 71% of our planet covered by oceans, there is no shortage of places to explore by boat. So when I landed recently on a page for the latest campaign from LOOK, which aims to identify the world’s most exotic sailing location, well, I had two reactions. What’s their pick? And how could we possibly […]
I recently had the pleasure to meet this guy named Tim. Tim is a PhD from MIT and he’s been sailing around the world for almost three years. His boat’s name is Slick and they have had quite the adventure together. Check out the interview ...

When it comes to destinations, Spiller Channel hasn’t exactly been calling our name: The surrounding hills are low and have been heavily logged, a practice that continues today, so the scenery isn’t what we’d consider “enticing”.

Incredible Monterey! Wow, what an awesome week, and it seems I say this with every new location. We stay in these port towns for 5-10 days and get to experience so much but still we miss some of the items on our to do lists. Monterey is a place you should not miss. With bicycles […]
Frost glistened on our deck and the dock outside was so slick I almost went off the other side when I stepped off to secure our lines. It was dark and still outside the Everett Yacht Club late one February evening. We had left Seattle late and we had to pull out of Everett again […]
