This web page is dedicated to the ongoing voyage of Seabird, our 62 foot Nordhavn passagemaker. We retired in 2005 to live our dream of cruising to distant lands. We sold our home as well as our cars and became free to cruise the world. Our journey started from St Augustine, Florida and began with several small shake down cruises to ensure that the vessel (and crew!!) were properly prepared for long distance cruising. We acquired our Nordhavn in 2003 and have cruised up and down the U.S. East Coast but our limited free time demanded long off shore passages with little opportunity for us to explore. This has since changed and we look forward to sharing our adventures with family and friends.
We have now traveled extensively along the coast of the US and Central America, through the Panama Canal, up the west coast of the US to Canada, Alaska, the Aleutian Islands, Siberia, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Philippines to Borneo, and now Phuket, Thailand
This year will be a bit different. First of all, there is only one boat left in the group as our friends Ken and Roberta have become the "advance team" for the GSSR Med Version of our trip. Also, sadly, Grey Pearl was lost in a tragic fire here in Phuket last season. Braun and Tina now have a new boat, Ocean Pearl and we hope to join up with them and Ken at some point.
Please "stay tuned" and check our website for updates on this trip and our subsequent trips. You can also track us on a "real time" basis by pressing the "Live Tracking" button at the top left of the screen. It is accurate to within 10 minutes of our exact location.
