We are a family of three cruising aboard our 1981 Dufour 35 sloop, Namani. It’s our plan to sail from New England to Panama and then across the Pacific over the next few years. Of course, life is full of surprises, so we will have to see how things turn out! This will be our second long cruise on Namani: in 2007-2008, we spent one year sailing the Mediterranean, across the Atlantic, around the Caribbean, and eventually, up the US East Coast to Maine. 

On this cruise, we will be home schooling our son Nicky for grades two and three, following the curriculum his “regular” school would cover in that time – making some adjustments to take advantage of the places and experiences that lie along the way. We keep this site and the accompanying blog for family and friends – old and new!
