Well, after years of preparation, planning, an unexpected wide range of emotions from exhilaration to sleepless nights, two hundred rows of excel spreadsheet provisions, punch lists, Captain’s license, numerous boat shows, 30-50 books (lost count), careful boat selection, temporarily extracting myself from family and work life, tomorrow morning, November 5, 2014, is GO time.
It’s thrilling to capture a life long dream first triggered by reading Dove (16 year old sails around the world) as a kid.
I’m so grateful for the support of my family, friends and teammates at work. We have a very capable boat and outstanding crew (Captain Jan Cluistra, Claudia Dengler and Larry Roland), supported by an awesome Outremer team in La Grande Motte, France.
The Davali crew celebrated the completion of Davali with the dedicated Outremer team. Here’s a link to video Thanking the Outremer Team.
Time to make it happen!
