We bought Yahtzee in June 2012 and moved aboard at Shilshole Bay Marina in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. In September 2014 we gave up our slip at Shilshole, sold our car and headed north for the San Juan Islands.
Our goal was simple: get out and live each day in the moment together.
We’ve spent the last few years doing just that while cruising full-time in the Salish Sea and racing in various events as we go. In April, 2016 we sailed down to the Columbia River and cruised as far up as Portland before participating in the 40th Oregon Offshore Race from Astoria, Oregon to Victoria, BC. From Victoria, we spent three months cruising around Vancouver Island and are currently enjoying winter cruising in Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands.
2017 was a big year for us. In February we left Puget Sound and sailed north up the outside of Vancouver Island and to Haida Gwaii before arriving in Alaska in late April. After cruising throughout Southeast Alaska for two months, we sailed across the Gulf of Alaska to Kodiak Island, the Kenai Peninsula and Prince William Sound. Of course, we couldn’t get enough of the The Last Frontier and are currently living in Seward.
