In the Beginning...


 Ahoy  !  If you don't already know us  please let me introduce ourselves: we are Marie-Claude, Mark, Matthew and Meghan and we would like to share with you all our experiences onboard our beloved Amélie . We hope to have many trips and opportunities to explore new cultures and open our children's eyes to the world . As a family we hope that these experience will ultimitely bring us closer. 

Amélie is a worthy vessel. She is an Amel Super Maramu 53. She is a solid blue water cruiser, a ketch, built in France in 1994.  We (the 4Ms) are a family from Canada who hope to be as worthy sailors as she is. We have been talking about buying a boat and sailing it around on and off for the last 15 years. Mark and I have sailed since the early 1990s and in one way or another have been preparing for boat ownership from the beginning. In the next few blogs I hope tell you more about each of us but first......
