  1. You will be in great company. Keep an eye out for s/v Flying Circus - they have five kids onboard - and s/v Del Viento - they have two girls onboard, and many wonderful boats and people who did the Baja Ha-Ha with us and are doing the puddle jump with you. We sure wish we were too. It would be fun to meet up with you and meet the rest of the family. Brad, Aline & Jake - Calgary Bluewater Cruisers

  2. We'll keep an eye out for sure! If you do the South Pacific, we highly recommend Galápagos! So far it's amazing. Hopefully we'll cross wakes somewhere. Fair winds and safe sails.
