Welcome to our sailing blog and the story of our cruising adventure.

The Best Sailing Blog in the World

Hold on to your hat. Here we go!


We are sailing an Amel 53 and this is our story of how we got here, what we are doing and where we are going. We plan to update our site as our adventure unfolds with pictures and regular postings. Cindy has always been a bit of a history buff so no doubt she will uncover the hidden treasures of places we visit. We are both avid photographers and are excited about the photo ops ahead.  This is not a technical sailing site by any means. In fact, we are on the complete opposite end of that spectrum. On our boat, it has a back, front, left and right. We try hard not to use confusing sailing jargon. The ambition with our site is to make it interesting and appealing for the adventurous spirit lying within all of us.

As you browse through our site, please be sure to read the About Mark and About Cindy pages. This will give you a sense of who we are and what we are about. We have a strong desire to see the world meet the people and have some fun. We worked hard, sacrificed, and sold our souls to reach this point in our lives. Somehow, we made it though unscathed and somewhat sane. Many may disagree with the sanity part. We can’t really argue with them. After all, do sane people really chuck it all and sail off over the horizon? We like to think so.

Specific information about Cream Puff, inside pictures and why we picked an Amel sailboat is available on The Boat tab.
